River Ridge Dermatology first in state using new body contouring technology 

November 15, 2016

River Ridge Dermatology is now the first practice in Virginia to offer a new body contouring treatment. Called the UltraShape Power, the procedure uses noninvasive ultrasound to permanently destroy selected fat cells. 

“As a full-service dermatology practice, we’re always looking for new ways to meet our clients’ needs,” said Dr. Aleksandra Brown. “We are proud to offer this innovative treatment as the demand for body-shaping continues to grow.” 

UltraShape Power is the first and only FDA-cleared procedure of its kind. Unlike other fat-burning treatments, it’s nonsurgical and doesn’t require any recovery time.  

Additional body contouring services offered by River Ridge Dermatology include the VelaShape and Kybella. Dr. Brown will also soon be certified in a minimally invasive facial contouring technique called the Y LIFT. 

These treatments add to the practice’s long list of comprehensive medical, surgical, and cosmetic services. It continues acquiring new medical technologies in an effort to provide its patients with the most advanced care. 

On the medical side, River Ridge Dermatology plans to offer in-house Mohs micrographic surgery in the coming months. The state-of-the-art treatment removes cancerous skin layer by layer, leaving healthy tissue unharmed.
