Ultherapy Uses Ultrasound Energy to Tighten the Skin

Published on November 9, 2017

There are few things which are as constant as the sunrise and sunset, and the aging process is one such thing that we cannot control that continuously progresses. One day, you will wake up and look into the mirror to see the early signs of aging throughout your body.

No amount of cosmetic products can rectify the drooping of the eyebrow or indications of loose skin on the face once they have set in. In order to fight back these changes, you will need the professional help of a plastic surgeon.

There are several non-surgical procedures available that can help treat the laxity of the neck and face. These solutions are popular because of their ability to provide substantial changes without being highly invasive. Over the years, new techniques have been introduced to provide skin tightening solutions, but one that stands out above the rest is Ultherapy!

Ultherapy is an energy based non-surgical skin tightening and lifting procedure. Technology helps to combine ultrasound imaging with acoustic energy to envisage tissue under the skin and channelize the ultrasound energy to the desired depth.

A Non-Surgical Breakthrough Called Ultherapy

As you grow older, your face and other parts of your body will start to show the signs of aging. In addition to the effects of the aging process, outside factors such as gravity and sun exposure accelerate the process, making it incredibly difficult to resurrect your youthful skin.

Until recently, the primary approach towards any skin laxity, especially on the face was a facelift. A facelift, however, is an invasive procedure that comes with side effect, including some post-surgical marks and some downtime for the procedure to be successful. With Ultherapy, however, things have changed considerably. This ultrasound energy therapy tightens your skin without any needles or any incisions.

Ultherapy does not offer the dramatic results of the facelift, but it does provide aesthetic improvements in the skin, and it will help boost your collagen production. As a standalone treatment, Ultherapy is perfect for people who do not want to undergo invasive procedures or experience long periods of downtime.

The Benefits of Ultherapy

Ultherapy comes with a number of great benefits. The procedure:

• Is non-invasive and safe.
• Does not cause any downtime.
• Does not require a lengthy recovery.
• Does not cause bruising, crusting, or swelling.
• Delivers an immediate smoothing effect.
• Does not include any toxins or fillers.
• Improves skin tone and texture with the production of more collagen.

In general, it has been noticed that after a single treatment of Ultherapy, the results provided can last for 1.5 years. Any person between the age of 35 and 60 with visible signs of skin laxity can choose to undergo this treatment. Complete results of this treatment are visible within three to six months after it is completed.

After an Ultherapy treatment, the boost in collagen will help give your skin the youthful and vibrant look you desire. This normal procedure gradually tightens and firms the skin, giving it a natural lift.
