Aesthetic doctor Martin Mangubat, together with his mother dermatologist Dr. Tina Ballesteros-Mangubat of Renergy Dermspa, has been helping people embrace their own brand of beauty and redefine what it means to age gracefully through non-invasive aesthetic procedures.
One such way is through Ultherapy, an ultrasound treatment that stimulates the creation of new collagen—which we gradually lose as we age—on and within the skin. An FDA-cleared procedure, Ultherapy can lift and tighten the skin above the brows, under the chin, and on the neck and décolletage.
“We have always made it a point to invest in treatments that are backed by sound scientific literature and clinical evidence,” says Dr. Martin, who offers non-invasive treatments like Ultherapy to people who want to look and feel younger without the risks. “What makes Ultherapy stand out for us is the inclusion of ultrasound visualization of dermal and subdermal tissue layers, making the procedure very precise, thus safer and more effective than others.”
“These days, we can now address the aging face primarily through non-surgical and non-invasive means with energy-based procedures like Ultherapy,” adds Dr. Tina, who has been practicing aesthetics medicine and dermatology for almost three decades. She has witnessed a shift in the way skin aging has been treated over the past 20 years: In the past, aging was only associated with laxity of the skin, which was addressed solely through surgical means. Eventually, though, researchers have found that skin aging also involves the depletion of dermal collagen and fat and even bone resorption.
While Ultherapy seems like a treatment for individuals in their 40s, Dr. Martin points out that it’s also for “younger individuals who want to delay aging by preventing the appearance of jowls and keeping the jawline and neck firm and defined.”
“We correct what people feel is hindering them from looking their best,” says Dr. Martin. “When they feel more confident and less insecure about themselves, their inner beauty can shine through.”
