Ultherapy May Be Your Ideal Rejuvenation Option
Skin rejuvenation is as important as the rejuvenation of body and mind. When your age starts to show on your face, your regular skin-care regimen may not be enough. You need something extra. Fortunately, there are many excellent options available, including Ultherapy.
Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved non-invasive and non-surgical procedure that lifts and tightens the neck, chin, and brow and improves lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. It can help you attain a fresher and more youthful appearance from your brow to your upper chest.
Tightening the skin is not possible with surface treatments; Ultherapy reaches deep into the tissues for effective tightening. It uses time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally without any surgery required.
Safe and FDA-Approved
The treatment employs ultrasound therapy to deliver its collagen-boosting treatment. Ultrasound technology has been used throughout the medical field for many decades and is known to be entirely safe, owing to the fact that is used in pregnancy detection and to monitor fetal development.
Ultherapy, or ultrasound therapy, has been officially recognized as safe and effective in clinical studies worldwide and has been used in over half a million treatments all through the globe. It is an excellent alternative to invasive and intense surgical procedures.
Ultherapy provides precise and accurate results that cannot be achieved by other procedures. The goal of the procedure is to tighten the skin without surgical intervention. During treatment, ultrasound energy is used to stimulate the production of collagen, tightening and lifting tissue.
It integrates conventional ultrasound imaging, which allows the provider and the patient to see the layers of tissue that are being treated on a monitor. This helps the provider deliver the treatment energy to exactly where it will be most beneficial.
Ultherapy can be potentially uncomfortable at times because of the use of ultrasound heat, which is used to penetrate the skin and reach down to the muscular level. To reduce the likelihood of any discomfort during treatment, most qualified physicians will prescribe pre-treatment medications. Any discomfort felt afterwards is not long-lasting, and occasionally the skin has a temporary feeling of tightness.
As far as results are concerned, the benefits of the treatment last for two to five years. Younger patients under 45 usually get closer to the five-year mark, as do patients who actively take good care of their skin, wear regular sunscreen before venturing out or have a history of minimal sun exposure, don’t smoke, don’t drink, and have good genes.
The quality of the results of the treatment depends on the ability of the patient’s body to create collagen. The effects of Ultherapy are visible within three to six months after the treatment date.
