Advanced technology has allowed patients to achiever firmer, smoother, younger-looking skin with a noninvasive procedure known as nonsurgical skin tightening, or Ultherapy, which uses ultrasound technology to target the skin’s deep layers to trigger collagen growth. Since collagen plays a role in skin elasticity, once it’s stimulated, this begins the process of skin rejuvenation. Charlotte plastic surgeon, Dr. Vincent Voci, uses the Candela Gentle Yag Laser to obtain outstanding results for patients who wish to improve their appearance without the use of traditional surgery.
Ultherapy is an in-office, outpatient procedure that is performed without the use of anesthesia. Once the targeted areas to be treated are confirmed, the practitioner will administer the ultrasound rays via a handheld device to these areas. During the procedure, patients will feel a mild warming sensation or prickling beneath their skin. This procedure does not cause pain nor does it cause discomfort in most cases.

"I recently had a large size Keloid that was growing on my face/cheek. I consulted with Dr. Voci and he thought it was best to remove it and be aggressive with treatment so the chances were better for it not to come back. The day of my procedure, I was so nervous and worried but Dr. Voci and his Staff totally put me at ease and treated me like family! My procedure was a success and although I am going to need numerous follow ups, I don't mind as long as he is the hands, heart and vision behind the procedures.I was beginning to lose my confidence and I was starting to feel less than but, since my procedure, I feel Beautiful and I feel like I can talk to people and know that they are paying me attention, not my keloid.A Million Thank Yous to Dr. Voci, Sandra Voci and their wonderful Staff! God bless you all!!"- N.Y. / Yelp / Jul 18, 2017

"Dr.Voci does excellent work and he really cares about his patients before the surgery and post care are excellent. He might have you return to his office few extra times post care than others but that's because he cares. If you have questions or concerns he returns calls himself. His bedside manner is 100% I have used him twice due to having a complication from my first surgery nothing he did at all my body itself caused the rejection. Anyway the reason I bring this up is most doctors would say this had nothing to do with my work and make you pay full price. No I did not get a huge discount but what he did was had his staff to contact the company the made the implant and we got something worked out. I recommend everyone I know that is considering any type of surgery go Dr Vincent Voci I have a friend that had butt implants put in and her scaring is so minimal you can't even see it unless you are really close and looking for it I could go onForever about what a wonderful doctor he is so I am just going to end with if you want it done right Don't take chance go to the best Pastic Surgeon In Charlotte because he is simply ???AMAZING ???"- T.I. / Google / Jun 26, 2017
What to Expect
Ultherapy will produce a “boost” in the skin’s appearance almost immediately following the procedure. However, optimal results typically reveal themselves over time within 2-3 months. This is because elastic collagen builds over time, producing results slowly and effectively. While Ultherapy does not produce the dramatic results that surgery typically does, it is a great alternative for those seeking subtle changes without having to undergo surgery.
Ultherapy is an ideal procedure for individuals that are not comfortable with an invasive surgical procedure, but still want to see noticeable results. Ultherapy is perfect for anyone that has noticed a “relaxing” of their skin, especially around the eyebrows, on the neck, and under the chin.
How Long do the Results Last?
Ultherapy results can be seen immediately following the procedure, however, it is more common for patients to see results a few months following their procedure. Patients can expect the results to last for a year at which time they could undergo another procedure.
How Many Treatments?
The amount of treatments required for optimal results depends on the patient and their goals. Some patients will only need a single treatment session, while others will require several.
