The system update has added effectiveness and decreased patient discomfort. Dr. Kridel is one of the first plastic surgeons in the Texas Medical Center area to offer Ulthera and the new upgrade.

About Ulthera Amplify: The three key elements of the Ultherapy Amplify software upgrade include: 1) Improved patient comfort – Patients do not require medication for treatment. However, patients can request it. 2) Increased efficiency through a more intuitive user interface for the physician 3) Updated treatment guidelines which include higher density treatments.The new guidelines with Ulthera Amplify have increased the full Ulthera treatment time slightly, from one hour to one hour, twenty minutes. With the new Ulthera Amplify software upgrade, patients do not require medication for treatment. However, for even greater comfort during the Ultherapy treatment we can apply topical cream. And, we can also use nerve blocks to further numb the skin if desired.
