Age might just be a number, but the signs of aging aren’t so easy to ignore – especially when they appear on one’s face and neck. Wrinkles, fine lines, and loose skin mean the skin’s elasticity is declining. Luckily, it is possible to reduce signs of aging thanks to advanced skin-treatment procedures like Ultherapy.

What Is Ultherapy?

Mild to moderate skin sagging can be corrected with Ultherapy. This procedure is suitable for anyone in their 30s or older who is looking for skin tightening.

Ultherapy relies on the use of ultrasound energy to help eliminate skin imperfections and aging signs. The ultrasound energy is applied to the skin layers to trigger the skin’s defense mechanism.

This naturally enhances the skin’s ability to produce collagen protein, which restores structure and elasticity to the skin. It also starts a new cycle of skin regeneration and growth of fresh skin cells to replace the damaged and dead skin cells.

The temperature of the applied energy is specifically calibrated to avoid damaging skin cells, leaving the external surface of the skin safe and untouched.

What Are the Benefits of Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is used for skin correction on areas of the face like the eyebrow region. It is also great for correcting the skin of the neck and décolletage region (the top portion of a woman’s torso).

This FDA-cleared procedure is non-invasive and quite safe. If you are someone who postpones skin-correction procedures for fear of surgeries and scars, then this treatment option may be an excellent choice for you. No scalpels or incisions are required, and no anesthesia is needed.

There are no toxic chemicals used on the skin, meaning you do not have to fear damaging the natural texture of your skin. The tone of your skin and its elasticity improve due to the elevated collagen levels and the revival of skin cells.

Ultherapy is one of the fastest treatments for the skin. It is a pain-free procedure where you might only feel a little discomfort during the application of ultrasound energy. It can also be used in combination with other skin treatments and cosmetic corrections.

No downtime or recovery time is needed after this procedure. Other than mild redness on the skin, there are no side effects that accompany this treatment. The post-procedure care for your skin is also quite simple.

Results start appearing soon after the treatment and keep getting better as the tissues’ collagen level keeps improving. This procedure often works with one session for most people. Dr. Chung might inspect the skin texture and recommend a follow-up procedure if required; it all depends on how your skin is responding to the treatment.
