“Getting old” and “looking old” do not have to go hand in hand. While aging is mandatory for everyone, having an aged appearance can be avoided by undergoing various procedures and treatments designed to maintain a youthful appearance. Ultherapy® is a non-surgical treatment that can lift, tighten, and tone the skin of the face and neck to keep you looking youthful and rejuvenated.
What Is Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is a non-invasive treatment approved by the FDA to rejuvenate the face. This treatment refreshes the appearance by tightening and lifting sagging skin in the face and neck area. Using safe, time-tested ultrasound waves, Ultherapy® heats the skin and activates new collagen formation. These focused waves penetrate deeply into the skin to improve skin quality from the inside out, all without harming the surface skin. The treatment is performed without any surgical incisions, and there is no surgical recovery. Immediately after treatment, patients feel some toning and firming of the skin that will continue to improve gradually over the next three to six months.
How Ultherapy® Can Rejuvenate the Appearance
Sagging skin is a common side effect of aging. As the skin weakens and loses elasticity over time, it begins to sag loosely over the body’s natural structural framework. Gravity exacerbates this effect. Facial and neck skin can develop skin sagging as an early sign of aging. With timely intervention using Ultherapy®, patients can correct sagging skin before it becomes a serious concern. Ultherapy® can be used to tighten the skin of the neck, under the chin, and brow area. Receiving treatment for these concerns can produce a smoother, more youthful appearance for the whole face and neck area.
The Benefits of Ultherapy®
Ultherapy® gives patients the opportunity to rejuvenate their skin without any surgery. It is often performed as a precursor to facelift surgery and can help patients to maintain a youthful look while postponing the need for surgery. As a non-invasive procedure, Ultherapy® patients have no scarring and no surgical recovery. The same day after the procedure is performed, patients can resume their normal activities. With this simple non-surgical procedure, patients can achieve noticeably tighter, firmer, more lifted, and more youthful skin in the face and neck.
