Now Offering The Aspen System!

Rapid Recovery with the Aspen System

With the Aspen ultrasound/electrical stimulation system we have developed a protocol to return patients back to full activity as quickly as possible after their surgery.

We are happy to offer this option designed exclusively for after cosmetic surgery procedures. We are the only practice on the West Coast that have this technology.

What is it?

Ultrasound therapy has been used for years to treat sport injuries.

Ultrasound is a method of stimulating the tissue beneath the skin's surface using very high frequency sound waves.

There are three primary benefits to ultrasound.

The first is the speeding up of the healing process from the increase in blood flow in the treated area.

The second is the decrease in pain from the reduction of swelling and edema.

The third is the gentle massage of muscles and connective tissues in the treated area because no strain is added and any scar tissue is softened.

Electrical stimulation is used after surgery to reduce pain, swelling, bruising and promote healing.

The unit sends comfortable impulses through the skin that stimulate the nerves in the treatment area. In many cases, this stimulation will reduce the pain sensation the patient feels.

How does it work?

Specially designed ultrasound heads and electrodes are placed on the treatment area.  Also, hands-on therapy with stretching exercises and tissue massage is used to accelerate your recovery. 

This is ideal after most procedures including: breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, liposuction, abdominoplasty, lower body lifts, and most facelifts. 

Usually six  sessions are required, twice a week. 

Treatment time can vary from 20 to 60 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area.
