Dr Kornstein has worked closely with Ultherapy since early in its development to help pioneer and develop its consistent clinical use. For this work as well as other contributions, he received the Award of Distinction from the Ultherapy Company. Some of his unique contributions have been published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the esteemed peer reviewed journal. His patients often get better results than reported by others because he uniquely combines his knowledge of the technology's accurate anatomical effects with his hands on knowledge and experience of the aging face and body. These advances have been in evolution and have now been successfully applied to areas of the body such as the arms, décolleté, knees, inner thighs and abdomen.
Dr. Kornstein’s Ultherapy Experience
He has been involved with Ultherapy since its early day of clinical use, and maintains a close relationship with members of the scientific research team.. He is on their Clinical Advisory Board, and has advised on the development of unique treatment protocols for the face and body, as well as its use when integrated with other aesthetic modalities. He was a pioneer in the use of the 1.5mm transducer, and has published articles on Ultherapy’s use to reduce the volume of silicone facial injections and reducing post operative nasal tip edema after rhinoplasty in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Journal. He recently gave Grand Rounds to the Department of Plastic Surgery at the University of Massachusetts on Ultherapy as a standalone procedure as well as an adjunct with fillers and surgery.
Ulthera to reduce tighten skin, reduce wrinkling and improve skin elasticity.
Meet Ulthera—a visionary aesthetic ultrasound—the newest treatment for facial skin tightening. Until now, no single product or procedure could promise to rejuvenate youth non-surgically but Ulthera gives patients the utmost impact in skin tightening and improved skin texture. Through aesthetic ultrasound, sagging brows, lids, neck and jowls are reversed. Using ultrasound technology, the Ulthera System allows the physician to first visualize then tighten the skin along with deeper soft tissue. In clinical evaluations a lift in the brow line was apparent after just one treatment. Firmer, tighter skin in other areas of the face and neck has been reported. Similar results are anticipated for other parts of the body as well.
What makes Ulthera so exciting?
Ulthera(py) is deeper and more specific than lasers, lights, injections and its predecessors who promised skin tightening. The level of precision and safety is unparalleled without the concern of causing damage to the outer layer of skin.
Skin contraction and collagen remodeling compliment all aspects of facial rejuvenation. Ulthera can indefinitely delay a facelift while delivering beautiful results that are enjoyed at a fraction of the cost. If a facelift is recommended due to sagging or damaged skin, Ulthera can further refine the surgical rejuvenation. Ulthera(py) is safe for all skin types, no matter how dark. Since the technology uses sound waves, there is no risk of hyper or hypo-pigmentation.
Ulthera was recently FDA approved as a non surgical treatment for browlifts.
No downtime with immediate results appeals to many patients. Early clinical studies put Ulthera enhancement as lasting 2 years or more. Our practice is one of the first in the northeast to invest in the latest in non surgical facial rejuvenation. Visit us in our New York City or Fairfield, Connecticut offices. Call today for a consultation and take advantage of a technology that won’t disappoint.
I decided that having a great surgeon was worth every bit of that 2,500 mile trip……..” When I was choosing a surgeon for my facial surgery, I was living in Santa Fe, New Mexico, but on the advice of a close friend who’d done lots and lots of research, I looked at a few surgeons in Manhattan. Dr. — was one, and he sounded great, but the more I learned about what Dr. Kornstein did the more interested I became. So I called to speak with him and was soon convinced he was the surgeon for me. Only that meant being 2,500 miles away from home. I decided that having a great surgeon was worth every bit of that 2,500 mile trip. I found a friend who stayed with me the day before my surgery and for six days after, which was not only comforting but fun. The actual surgery was so much easier than I’d expected. Really, it felt more like a vacation. Six plus months later and I am very happy I chose Dr. Kornstein.
Andy really “gets” the relationship between a healthy body and mind and how that influences how we feel about ourselves. His conservative, holistic approach make me confident in recommending his practice.” I have spent the last 20 years in the fitness industry. 13 years ago I decided to take my private coaching expertise and make the leap to owning my own studio in Westport called Evolution Sports & Fitness. It’s a bit different both in the membership demographic and the way in which we train. We cater to those who are in pretty good shape already, but seeking to take their fitness to the next level—tennis players, cyclists, runners and other athletes. Our philosophy is to provide a mixed modality type of training using the member’s own body movement. Classes are very specific and one on one personal training is our specialty. This is a private studio and no one works on their own. This approach seems to appeal to a wide variety of serious fitness buffs. Members join simply through word of mouth which is the best endorsement. If I had to categorize the majority of my members I would say they are past 40, health conscious and want the body they had before having children. They recognize the value of feeling good and looking good and want their appearance to reflect their vitality. One of the biggest misconceptions is the role diet plays within the goal of “getting fit.” Understand you can never out train a bad diet. Nutrition is key. Another mistaken notion is that exercise can tighten loose skin. We can develop a program to minimize body fat, but there is a limit to what someone can reasonably expect exercise to correct. When does a person know they have done all they can do prior to consulting on body sculpting? If something is sagging, or needs to be lifted or flattened maybe the gym is not the total answer. Some lean folks think they are pinching fat when it is really loose skin. It’s important to have the right expectations so frustration doesn’t become part of your routine. I have personally gone to Dr. Kornstein for Ultherapy® skin tightening and was very happy with the results. I share a very symbiotic relationship with cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Andrew Kornstein in Fairfield. We mirror each other’s outlook on health and wellness. Andy really “gets” the relationship between a healthy body and mind and how that influences how we feel about ourselves. His conservative, holistic approach make me confident in recommending his practice. If a member approaches me about a tummy tuck, liposuction, breast enhancement or some non-invasive tightening procedures, I advise getting in the best shape first. My regimen includes a nutritional profile for the first 30 days featuring no inflammatory foods and sweets; monitored light exercise increasing to intense workouts over a period of 6 months to a year. Andy has always understood the role fitness and nutrition plays in experiencing a positive outcome from a surgical procedure or non-invasive treatment. Conversely, these aesthetic procedures often enhance someone’s efforts in the gym. There is a distinct interplay between our practices.
I am looking “tighter, rested, and pretty good for my age!” As an aesthetic laser technician in NY, it’s my job to keep up on the latest technology. About 6 months ago, I came across an article on Ultherapy and immediately called the rep to see if I could have a demo for the purpose of bringing it into my practice. I was told it is only available through physicians. The rep told me Dr. Andrew Kornstein was achieving the best results and highest patient satisfaction. Coincidentally, I had been a former patient of Dr. Kornstein’s and decided to see him again and “try on” the treatment for myself. During the consultation he described what I could expect and I had the full face procedure. Six weeks later, I saw no improvements and called Dr. Kornstein to tell him my disappointment. He told me it was impossible not to see improvements, but they sometimes took 2-3 months. Since I knew Dr. Kornstein, I decided to trust and be patient. Today, several months post treatment, I am looking “tighter, rested, and pretty good for my age! Ultherapy has done exactly what Dr. Kornstein said it would do. It’s the perfect answer for those who don’t want or need a facelift but want to look younger and refreshed. My nasal labial folds are diminished, my skin texture is better and my pore size is improved. I just look better. The results are amazing. I wish I could do my whole body! On a personal note, Dr. Kornstein is a very gifted surgeon with an extremely keen eye. He is exacting in his work and pays attention to details. When so many plastic surgeons these days are nothing more than mediocre doctors living behind a smokescreen of a great publicist, Dr. Kornstein is the real deal. He’s approachable, accessible, and nice. He is one of few who stands behind his Hippocratic Oath and is genuinely concerned for all those in his care.
I really really really looked better than anyone, facially speaking!” I’ve already had 2 courses of the Ulthera, but i wanted to tell you that I just went to my 30th high school reunion, and I have to say, I really really really looked better than anyone, facially speaking! I was silently thanking you the whole time, and I felt so good. Thanks for making me feel so confident – it was the first reunion I’ve ever been to, and I had a great time. Your talent, and Karol’s, are extraordinary and I would recommend you a thousand times over.
this is an answer to prayers!” I saw and felt a huge difference on the way home and it keeps getting better! You were right! I referred a pilates client today and she will be calling for a consultation for Ulthera soon. I will keep referring people, this is an answer to prayers! Trish rocks! and of course so do you A.K. Thank you both so much! I can’t wait to see what it looks like over the next few weeks! Yay!
