Ultherapy

Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound technology to lift, tighten, and transform the brow, eye area, chin, neck and chest. Ultherapy has been established as effective in clinical studies and in over a million treatments worldwide.

Ultherapy relies on ultrasound therapy to deliver its collagen-boosting treatment. It also incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring the treatment energy is delivered to where it will be most beneficial.

Consultations are required for this treatment. During this session, our highly trained practitioners will determine if you are a candidate for the treatment, discuss projected results, review before and after care, and discuss pricing

ABBY CUSHMAN, MS

VICE PRESIDENT of Operations

At Vega Vitality, we believe that wellness and beauty go hand in hand. For example, we not only offer a skin peel that can improve acne, but we also have a functional nutritionist available to assist with dietary changes that may address the root cause of the problem. The more we can improve our lifestyle through mindful eating, movement, and mediation, the better our skin and body will be.

For a decade, prior to starting at Vega Vitality, Abby was employed in grueling and intense roles in corporate America. After suffering from crippling ocular migraines, she decided that her health was too important to continue down that path. She left her job and took a year off to focus on her health and well-being. While on this journey she found Vega Vitality. She accepted an offer to join the team in 2017.

At Vega Vitality, Abby is responsible for day-to-day business operations, regulatory and legal compliance, and the financial and human relations aspects of the practice. She oversees short and long-term strategies, executes systems implementation, and consistently works to improve organizational behavior and operational efficiencies within the practice. Abby has supported CEO’s for over a decade, and she now works closely with Vega Vitality’s Founder, Ashley Hilmes, to ensure the practice runs seamlessly. She is grateful to be a part of team comprised of such intelligent and kind women.

Abby graduated summa cum laude from Boston College with a MS in Leadership & Administration and cum laude from Regis College with a BA in Communication. She holds a certificate in The Science of Well-Being from Yale University. Before joining the Vega team, Abby worked at Morgan Stanley, Fidelity Investments, athena health, Trinity, and Reebok International.
