Loose skin is one of the most dreaded signs of aging. Ultherapy treatment is a favorite method to safely regenerate skin to its original tight and radiant state without surgery. This therapy is a non-surgical ultrasound treatment that tightens facial tissue through deep heating.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
The treatment uses the body’s regenerative reaction to gradually and gently lift skin on the neck, eyebrows and under the chin. Ultherapy also reduces lines and wrinkles on the neck. The treatment uses ultrasound energy to stimulate the growth of new and existing collagen. The procedure is non-surgical and is an excellent alternative for patients who are not inclined to undergo the traditional surgical facelift. Ultherapy usually needs one treatment session, but it may be adjusted depending on the degree of laxity and response of the patient’s skin.
Ultherapy is different from laser treatments in that it uses sound energy which penetrates deeply into the skin and stimulates collagen production. Laser treatments rely on light energy which is less penetrating hence it treats only the superficial skin layer.
Benefits of Ultherapy
It’s a non-invasive procedure – Revitalizes skin without plastic surgery. The procedure eliminates risks of general anesthesia, prolonged healing or scarring.
It is customized to the patient’s desire – Customizes treatment by adjusting the depth of energy and the length of treatment. The procedure was initially FDA-approved for lifting and tightening skin around the neck, chin, and eyebrows, but today it can also be used in the chest area (décolletage).
No downtime – Aside from some redness and swelling that may be seen immediately after treatment, typically needs no downtime.
It’s natural-looking – Allows your skin tissue to gradually tighten through collagen stimulation and result in a natural, rejuvenated look.
Long-lasting results – Although final effects of treatment appear after two to three months, patients continue to see improving results over time.
Ultherapy is an excellent option for non-surgical skin lifting and tightening whose results are natural-looking and long-term.
