Drs. Herdener and Reed Now Offering the Non-invasive Cosmetic Procedure – Ultherapy – in Spokane


Non-surgical Ultrasound Treatment Lifts, Tones and Tightens Skin without Downtime


Spokane, WA—December 6, 2012— Richard Herdener, MD, and Katherine Reed, MD, announced today that the first-of-its-kind cosmetic treatment, Ultherapy, is now available at their practice, Dermatology Specialists of Spokane.

Ultherapy is a new type of non-surgical procedure for the face that stimulates the body’s own natural healing process to lift the skin over time. The use of FDA-cleared ultrasound technology enables physicians, for the first time, to see and then treat the deepest support layers of the skin – typically addressed in cosmetic surgery – without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.

“Ultherapy represents a whole new category within aesthetic medicine,” says Dr. Herdener. “It is an ideal cosmetic procedure for men and women looking for natural yet noticeable results.”

The treatment typically takes two to two and a half hours. Afterward, patients are able to return to normal activities right away, and there are no special measures they need to take.

With just one Ultherapy treatment, the lifting process is initiated, but the effect will build gradually over the course of two to three months, as new, stronger collagen is created. Further improvements can even appear up to six months following a procedure as this collagen-building process continues.

While the results do not duplicate those of surgery, Ultherapy’s gradual improvements make it a compelling option for people who have mild to moderate skin laxity as well as those who want to “stay ahead of the game” and those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.

Tens of thousands of Ultherapy treatments have been provided worldwide, and Dr. Herdener and Dr. Reed are pleased to be at the forefront in the U.S. of this clinical advance.
