One of Dr. Shah's patients before and after

her Ultherapy treatment

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. –Until recently, the range of non-surgical options for treating loose tissue in the face and neck has been only modestly effective. Mercy plastic surgeon, Dr. Bharat Shah, is now using Ultherapy® to tighten lax skin of the face, neck, and brow with impressive results in a single treatment session.

This non-invasive procedure, called Ultherapy®, has been available in Europe, Asia and elsewhere since early 2009. But Dr. Bharat Shah of Mercy Clinic Medical Spa in Springfield is pleased to be among the first physician innovators adopting the technology in this area.

“In a single visit, this non-invasive treatment is able to lift, tighten and tone a patient’s face with no downtime. Patients experience an immediate smoothing effect, but the results continue to improve over the next three to six months,” said Dr. Shah. “Ultherapy® is an ideal procedure for women and men who are concerned with early sagging and signs of facial aging and want to avoid or postpone surgery."

Dr. Shah can use Ultherapy® to tighten skin on the brows, neck and face, counteracting the effects of gravity and time. When Ultherapy® is used to lift the brows it also reduces excess skin on the lids and opens the eyes to give a more relaxed appearance. Ultherapy® can also help tighten loose skin along the neck line, sagging jawline and double chin.

By combining Ultherapy® with other minimally invasive techniques, including cosmetic injections and dermal fillers, Dr. Shah can achieve dramatically younger-looking results for the entire face without surgery.

For more information about the procedures available at Mercy Clinic Medical Spa please call 417-820-9340. Mercy Clinic Medical Spa is located at 1229 E. Seminole, Suite 310.

Dr. Bharat Shah, the medical director of Mercy Clinic Medical Spa, is a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in cosmetic surgery, breast enhancement, body contouring, facial rejuvenation and hair restoration.
