Are you one of the many individuals who find themselves longing for a younger appearance after looking in the mirror? If so, you might have thought about seeking professional treatment to reverse some of those unwanted signs of aging. For many people, a facelift is the first thing that comes to mind. In fact, individuals are frequently unaware that other methods exist. For those who are apprehensive about going through a surgical procedure, there is good news. Other treatments are available.

While many individuals get the results they want with a facelift, there are disadvantages associated with the procedure as well. It is an invasive surgery that is very involved. There will be a significant amount of discomfort during the healing process. There will also be some necessary downtime before returning to normal living. In addition, a certain amount of risk is involved. These things can be avoided with a non-invasive ultrasound facial.

Ultrasound therapy utilizes the same energy that is used when a person has an ultrasound done for imaging purposes. In fact, the imaging provided by the technique provides an advantage to the professional who is delivering the treatment in that they can see what is happening on a computer screen. This allows for any necessary adjustments in the energy intensity so that the best possible results can be achieved.

Ultrasound therapy works by stimulating the growth of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin. It is the substance that makes the skin look full and tight. As you age, your skin will contain less of it because its production rate decreases. This means your skin will start to become loose and, as a result, develop lines and wrinkles.

When the ultrasound energy is absorbed by the skin, it will be gently warmed. The warmth will then stimulate the collagen growth process to begin. The level of collagen will steadily increase over the course of the following months until it reaches a quantity that is sufficient to restore tightness to the skin. Consequently, many of those lines and wrinkles will disappear.

Ultrasound therapy is virtually risk-free. Unlike a facelift, after an ultrasound facial treatment, you will be able to immediately resume your normal activities. The treatment is performed in the comfort of our office and is entirely non-invasive.
