Ultherapy®: A Non-Invasive Technology to Subtly Tighten Skin
Aging is inevitable! We all would like to appear “forever young,” but we know the clock keeps ticking so we look for alternatives that will slow the aging process to help us look and feel our best.
Many will choose to turn back the aging process more quickly with surgery while others will seek a non-surgical alternative. The choice depends solely on the individual and what their cosmetic goals are.
Ultherapy® offers a non-invasive approach to improving the elasticity of your skin. Results are individual, and improvement will differ based on a number of factors. One is the age you first have an Ultherapy® treatment. Another is the amount of facial and neck laxity you have prior to treatment, as well as the thickness of your skin. If your skin lacks enough elasticity due to heaviness, then Ultherapy® may not be your best option for the improvement you are seeking. Age does not have to be a factor; it is more about the amount of skin laxity.
The number of treatments is another factor. One treatment may be enough for some patients while others may require two, three, or more treatments to achieve the optimal result they are wanting. Since Ultherapy® treatment results continue to work over time the initial improvement felt right after treatment will be that of slight redness and a feeling of tightness. These effects will subside after a few hours. One Ultherapy® treatment will continue to give results by stimulating the growth of new collagen.
Ultherapy® uses low levels of focused heat targeted beneath the skin to achieve a positive effect while leaving the surface of your skin undisturbed. It takes about an hour to treat an entire face under some topical anesthetic cream. Improvement can be seen as few as 90 days and will continue to improve over the next year.
Ultherapy® requires no downtime. It is FDA-approved, and clinical trials have demonstrated the safety of Ultherapy® treatment.
So, Ultherapy® can be of benefit to many seeking an early approach to staving off the inevitable aging process or just because they prefer a non-surgical approach to aging. It’s your choice!
