Aging is unavoidable, but looking older than we feel is something that we can postpone with Ultherapy! As we age, our skin is affected by several factors including genetics, environmental conditions, and weight fluctuations, but a good skin care regimen, healthy diet and exercise, and maintenance treatments will all help to keep your skin in good condition for years to come!
What Happens to Skin As We Age?
Our natural collagen production slows as we age, causing our skin to lose its firmness and elasticity. Additionally, genetics, environmental conditions, and weight fluctuations can all exacerbate premature aging, appearing as wrinkles, drooping skin, and jowls. Ultherapy is an excellent option for treating mild to moderate signs of aging in the face for natural-looking results without surgery.
What Is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy uses safe, time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin on your neck, chin, and brow and improves fine lines and wrinkles on the chest. Ultherapy delivers focused ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production in the skin’s foundational layer, the same layer of tissue addressed with a surgical facelift but without disturbing the surface of the skin.
Why Is It A Good Anti-Aging Option?
Ultherapy’s effectiveness is due to the use of ultrasound imaging, which allows our aestheticians to see the layers of tissue they are targeting during the treatment, depositing the energy where it will be most beneficial. The ultrasound energy triggers a natural response under the skin which initiates collagen production, which gradually strengthens the skin from within and results in a visible lift. Ultherapy can lift and tone the skin for a natural, long-lasting result without downtime.
What You Can Expect After Your Treatment
FDA-approved Ultherapy is non-invasive and does not require general anesthesia. Some minor redness may occur at the treatment sites, but this generally fades within a few hours. Some patients see tightening of the skin immediately after treatment, but maximum results will appear over the next two to three months as new collagen growth occurs and works to lift and tighten the skin. Most patients only require one treatment, but due to individual factors, some patients benefit from additional treatment.
Ultherapy is an ideal solution if you have mild to moderate sagging in the face and neck, but you are not ready to undergo a surgical procedure such as a facelift. Ultherapy is not a good option if you have significant sagging skin as it cannot produce the same dramatic results achieved with a surgical facelift. However, Ultherapy can be an excellent option for you post-surgery if you are looking to enhance or extend the results of your cosmetic surgery!
