Dr. Richard E. Buckley Develops Laser Skin Tightening Procedure to Rival Thermage and Ultherapy
Noninvasive skin tightening with Thermage and Ultherapy are among the more popular cosmetic
surgery procedures today, but they can be costly. Dr. Richard E. Buckley developed a laser skin
tightening approach, called Dermatyte, to give patients a more economical option
MILFORD, PA (PRWEB) APRIL 21, 2016
Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Richard E. Buckley has developed a
noninvasive laser skin tightening approach, called DermaTyte,
which rivals popular skin tightening procedures Thermage and
Ultherapy. DermaTyte is done in the ofἀ渄ce and completed in
minutes with no downtime. It’s safe for all skin colors and all
ethnicities and can be performed on any area of the body, including
the face and neck, to tighten skin and create a rejuvenated result.
“People love noninvasive skin tightening, so this is another in our
armamentarium of treatments that can truly be a lunchtime or
anytime procedure,” Dr. Buckley says. “In 15 minutes, I can treat the
face, neck or other area of the body—even the backs of the hands.”
How does DermaTyte compare to Thermage and Ultherapy?
According to Dr. Buckley, Thermage, uses radio frequency to tighten
skin. “Thermage uses a coolant on the skin’s surface and then
delivers energy deep into the skin to begin the tightening process,”
he says. “Ultherapy is different energy. It’s highly-focused
ultrasound and doesn’t require skin cooling.”
Ultherapy has beneἀ渄ts the other technologies don’t, according to
Dr. Buckley, who offers patients all three options at his MilfordMD
Cosmetic Dermatology Surgery & Laser Center, in Milford, Penn.
With the ultrasound, Dr. Buckley says he can visualize the full
thickness of the skin on the monitor to help guide treatment. “So,
we can see the exact areas to which we’re delivering the energy,
which is a nice feature of the device,” he says. “Ultherapy also is
FDA approved for skin lifting.”
Unlike these other options, DermaTyte, uses laser energy to tighten
the skin. Dr. Buckley developed the approach with an FDA cleared
laser to treat skin without the need for anesthesia. The nonablative,
noninvasive procedure uses infrared laser technology to deliver
laser energy through the skin to deeply heat the dermal collagen
and to preferentially target water and collagen within the dermis.
The result is a shrinking of the deeper layer of skin’s tissues. The
procedure also stimulates new collagen.
“DermaTyte is ideal for people who want a noninvasive skin
tightening procedure without downtime,” he says. “In a few
treatments, we can achieve noticeable improvements in ἀ渄ne lines
and wrinkles, skin laxity, acne and acne scars.” To achieve optimal
results with DermaTyte, most patients need one treatment for every
decade of life. So, a 50-year-old patient might need a series of ἀ渄ve
treatments, done three to four weeks apart.
Among the beneἀ渄ts of DermaTyte is that it costs less than
Thermage or Ultherapy. That’s because Thermage and Ultherapy
require that physicians use consumables, which are parts that are
disposed of with each treatment. Those consumables add to the cost of the procedure. The laser
Dr. Buckley uses during DermaTyte treatment does not use consumables.
“Each option has its beneἀ渄ts. Different skin tightening procedures are best for different patients,”
Dr. Buckley says. “The good news with DermaTyte is that patients have yet another skin tightening
option—one that’s more affordable than the others.”
