Our skin is like a satin sheet, soft and smooth until it suffers some sort of trauma, be it burning, surgery, injury or body reactions such as acne and stretch marks.

So much has been written lately about Ulthera and how it may very well be the future of facelift surgery – without the surgery. Ulthera, which was backed strongly by Dr.Oz in one of his TV shows, is very much being “watched.” For good reason. Dr. Oz is a reputable health guru.
