Dr. Paul L. Leong, MD

It's Your Face, Trust it to a Specialist


ult_logo_gold_tag-300x83Dr. Paul Leong is very pleased to be one of the first providers of the revolutionary Ultherapy treatment in the Pittsburgh area. Dr. Leong is the first Pittsburgh facial plastic surgeon to offer this exciting new treatment. Ultherapy (from the Ulthera company) is a new cosmetic procedure that can lift and firm the skin and underlying tissues of the brow, face, and neck – often with immediately visible results.

ultherapy-system-300x283Ultherapy uses safe ultrasound technology, the same tool trusted for decades to image pregnant mothers. Ultherapy is the only FDA approved energy-based device that has been cleared for non-invasive lifting.

Ultherapy is truly a lunch-time procedure. This simple treatment requires about one hour for a full facial treatment and about 30 minutes for a partial facial treatment. Ultherapy patients can return immediately to work or any other activity, with no recovery time what-so-ever. Many cosmetic treatments (laser and otherwise) make this claim, but Ultherapy truly delivers, there is no down-time.

Dr. Leong believes strongly that new technologies adopted into his practice must have clear evidence to support their safety and effectiveness. There are several other devices that have made similar claims about their ability to tighten and lift facial soft tissue. Dr. Leong has been skeptical of all previous devices that have made these claims. Indeed, many patients who have tried these older technologies to tighten and lift their facial tissues have been disappointed with their results. Ulthera can deliver outstanding results because the technology it uses is fundamentally different than these previous technologies.

We all look in the mirror as we get older and see things we don’t like. I did a fair amount of research and chose Dr. Paul Leong for Ultherapy treatments. He is a marvelous physician and such a personable conversationalist. The Ultherapy went so well I scheduled several other treatments.
Review from AngiesList.com

Instead of trying to drive heat down to the deeper facial tissues from the outside (as previous technologies do), Ultherapy delivers focused treatments directly to the deeper tissue without heating or damaging the skin. This allows for more effective lifting with no downtime. In order to obtain an effective treatment, these older technologies would have to increase the energy of the treatment to the point that it would damage the skin – therefore, results are often disappointing using the older devices.

Our experience with Ultherapy suggests that the absolute best results can be obtained if the person performing the treatment is deeply knowledgeable about the aesthetics and anatomy of the face. As explained below, Ultherapy achieves its effect by encouraging the formation of your own body’s collagen. It makes sense to Dr. Leong that if forming new collagen with Ultherapy is what leads to facial tightening and improvement, than where the Ultherapy device is positioned on the face is of critical importance.
