Ultherapy - Dr. Arash Moradzadeh
Serving Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and surrounding areas
Ultherapy, often referred to as “the ultrasound facelift” or “weekend facelift” is a revolutionary new technology for the visible lifting and tightening of facial skin. It makes ultrasound technology in a completely new way to lift and elevate the facial tissue – just as face lift surgery can do. In traditional ultrasound the waves are non-focused, which means they travel in a straight line directly out from the source. By contrast, Ultherapy uses targeted ultrasound that focuses the ultrasound waves down to a focal point, creating a microthermal coagulation zone that precisely heats the tissue to cause contraction and tightening of the collagen in the skin. Ultherapy is the only non-invasive device that treats the SMAS layer, which is the tissue targeted with neck lift and face lift surgery.
What To Expect Afterwards.Following the Ultherapy facelift treatment, most patients feel an immediate tightening of the skin and can sense the lifting action. The skin in the treated areas may feel slightly numb to the touch — a sensation that can last anywhere from a couple of days to a few weeks. Occasionally there is also mild soreness over the jawbone and forehead areas treated with Ultherapy, but both of these symptoms are mild and improve with time.
After Ultherapy treatment, patients generally see immediate improvements in the neck and jowl area — some permanent and some temporary. The contraction, tightening and creation of new collagen take between two to six month to fully manifest. Once they do, the results can be quite long lasting.
Is Ultherapy Right For You?
Candidates for Ultherapy typically complain they’re starting to see some relaxation of the neck skin, formation of early jowls and descent of the brow.The procedure works best on patients with mild to moderate laxity and sagging of the skin, although Dr. Moradzadeh has also achieved excellent results in patients who have more significant skin redundancy. Ultherapy is an excellent treatment for those individuals who want to tighten their skin and reverse the signs of aging, but who are too busy to take significant time off for facelift surgery or more aggressive laser treatments.
For most patients, there is no "downtime" with the Ultherapy skin tightening procedure. Patients may experience mild redness of the skin but it usually lasts less than a half hour. Individuals with sensitive skin may also develop small raised bumps, which usually go away immediately after applying ice. Occasionally an antihistamine such as Claritin can be used as well.
Dr. Moradzadeh performs all Ultherapy treatments in his Beverly Hills and Santa Barbara office. He is an early adopter of this treatment and has extensive experience in its application. Dr. Moradzadeh has several customized protocol to apply the Ultherapy technology to meet your individual needs.

Using a variety of techniques including Ultherapy, these irregularities are corrected with no down time.

The experience I had with Dr. Moradzadeh as my surgeon was phenomenal. His unmatched craft coupled with his amazing bedside manner made for a very pleasant experience. Dr. Moradzadeh has gone above and beyond to achieve the absolute best and natural results possible.
One year ago, Dr. Moradzadeh performed a septoplasty/rhinoplasty on me. I was an athlete all through school and broke my nose multiple times while playing softball. After college, I wanted to pursue my modeling career but missed a lot of opportunities because of the external deformity of my nose. I saw a few local Facial Plastic Surgeons but after meeting with them, I never felt comfortable enough to commit. -Marry
For many years, I suffered from severe breathing problems through my nose. I had been delaying any medical procedures to fix the problem because I was uncomfortable with the process, especially the packing typically inserted into the nasal passages and the difficult recovery period. I went to see Dr. Moradzadeh for any alternative solutions. He described a quick, special surgical process that he can perform which alleviates the problem, improves nasal breathing and has no negative side effects. I willingly agreed since my discomfort was only getting worse. After the brief surgery, I immediately noticed the improvement. I haven’t been able to breathe this freely in years...-R.D.
He is amazing! Already recommended to family and My father is going in on Monday. An excellent doctor and so glad I was referred to him. :) His office staff is also on point and very friendly. What an awesome experience.-Diana
Very professional and skilled at administering botox. I highly recommend!
It was interesting to feel my forehead muscles trying to relax, but I took it easy the day I had my face done and although he said that the results show 7 to 10 days after... I noticed my expression lines chilling out 48 hours later. It is nice to have had a good experience and I am pleased thus far with the service.
I was pleasantly surprised at how the office is welcoming and they were even able to get me in sooner, as I was early. Parking is a little tricky, so I took valet across the street and it was about $10 (tip included). The doctor was friendly and gentle, getting the areas that I wanted to target....-Anonymous
