If you are looking for a safe and effective method to tone and tighten your skin without having to resort to surgery, you should check into Ultherapy® treatments. This innovative therapy uses ultrasound technology to bring about noticeable, therapeutic results.
As you age, your body will not produce as much collagen as it once did. As a result, the skin will become loose and start to sag. This will also cause wrinkles to show up. Collagen is a protein in the lower layers of the skin that provides fullness. If the level of this substance can be returned to higher quantities, the effect would be fuller and tighter skin without lines and wrinkles.
Ultherapy® utilizes ultrasound energy to do its job. Ultrasound is frequently used by doctors as an imaging tool. However, it can now also be used therapeutically to rejuvenate the skin. When used for skin tightening, a device is moved across the skin above the areas in which the wrinkles and lines are located. The heat that is generated will stimulate the production of collagen in the lower layers of the skin. This helps restore it to its former tightness.
Many patients choose Ultherapy® because it is completely safe and noninvasive. After receiving therapy, you can return to your normal lifestyle right away. You will then get to see your skin gradually improve for up to 6 months.
Ultherapy® should not be confused with a face lift. It is a non-surgical procedure that does not require any incisions or downtime for recovery. This procedure is an excellent choice for those who do not want to resort to surgery to achieve a younger appearance. Ultherapy® even treats the same deeper foundational layers beneath the surface that cosmetic surgical procedures do, all without a single incision.
Unlike laser treatments that use light energy to do the work, Ultherapy® uses sound energy. This enables it to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin with the same intensity regardless of the depth. Laser energy cannot reach all skin depths while maintaining optimum temperature the way ultrasound energy does. Because laser and ultrasound techniques are often used to treat different conditions, the two are very compatible and can be used in conjunction with one another.
This procedure does not take very long, and after your treatment is finished, you will be able to go back to your daily routine. You may notice some immediate benefits following the treatment, but the best results will occur over the course of a few months. This is when collagen production reaches its peak. For most people, one treatment is all that is necessary to get noticeable results. Touch-up treatments can be done occasionally if desired.
