Studies show that a high percentage of Americans consider themselves overweight, and an even higher percentage believe they are being chased by Frankenstein's monster. Alter self-perceptions with today's Groupon: for $749, you get one Ulthera brow-lift procedure at Advanced Aesthetics Medical Spa in East Amherst (a $1,500 value).
The medical aestheticians at Advanced Aesthetics Medical Spa tighten and lift brows by applying concentrated heat to the foundational layers of the skin. In order to see beneath the skin, the technician first employs an ultrasound device, which projects an image of the target tissue and the previous night's dreams onto a screen. Ultrasound heat is transmitted to the deep dermal layers that dictate facial appearances. The transmitted warmth stimulates the skin to generate new collagen around the brow, counteracting the effects of age, gravity, and a lifetime of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson impersonations.
Though clients can experience a noticeable effect immediately after the procedure, the most noticeable progress occurs after two to three months. The noninvasive process requires no immediate downtime and lasts only 30–60 minutes, meaning patients can drop by for a quick pick-me-up on their lunch break or when the coach isn't looking during halftime.
Advanced Aesthetics Medical Spa
Treating the cosmetic blemishes that can appear on aging skin requires a forward-looking approach. Overseen by Drs. Hratch Karamanoukian and Raffy Karamanoukian, Advanced Aesthetics Medical Spa keeps pace with the passage of time by constantly seeking out new advancements in technology, skincare products, and cosmetic procedures.
The center’s cache of technology includes cosmetic laser systems that work to improve skin tone and texture by addressing fine lines, acne scars, and scratch-and-sniff tattoos. Beyond light, these and other systems can also use sound waves or radio frequencies to firm and lift faces. Even the more traditional spa procedures at the clinic pamper clients with medical-grade products and equipment. The crystal-free microdermabrasion system uses a diamond-encrusted titanium wand to smooth away impurities, and facials with botanically derived balms and vitamin C rejuvenate complexions.
