Loose, sagging skin is among the more advanced signs of aging. Years ago, the only way to treat this issue was through surgical procedures. Now, however, patients have the option of using non-invasive skin-tightening treatments to dramatically firm the skin and revitalize their appearances. Ultherapy® is currently one of the most innovative and advanced of these treatments given that it’s the only non-invasive skin tightening procedure that has been FDA-approved for use on the décolletage. Thus, with this treatment, patients can obtain improvements in both facial areas and at the neck and chest for an overall natural and seamless look.
How Ultherapy® Is Performed
Ultherapy® uses focused ultrasound energy to accelerate collagen production for a gradual and noticeable tightening and firming of the skin. This treatment enhances the growth of both existing and new collagen stores to give the dermis greater structural support, increased elasticity and a heightened ability to repair itself. During the procedure, a special device is used to stimulate the targeted areas with special ultrasound waves. With this treatment, there is no discomfort, no cutting, no alterations of the natural tissues and absolutely no downtime.
These treatments are relatively quick, and you can return to your normal activities as soon as they’re finished. Best of all, you’ll have taken a major step towards a new and improved you, and no one around you will be any the wiser. Ultherapy® is valued for providing gradual and inconspicuous results. To everyone around you, you’ll simply look like you’ve found the key to naturally reversing the normal aging process. While you may see some improvements in the tightness and elasticity of the treated areas immediately after your treatment, you’ll see the most noticeable improvements within two to three months.
Who’s a Good Candidate for Ultherapy?
Given that Ultherapy® is a very low-risk and entirely non-invasive procedure, verifying whether or not patients are in good general health is not a typical part of the screening process. As such, if you’ve been turned down for invasive anti-aging procedures in the past, this safer, easier and far more convenient treatment could be right for you. The treatment is also attractive to people who want dramatic improvements in the tightness and elasticity of their skin but remain unwilling to undergo surgical procedures. This treatment is even an excellent way to maintain the results of past cosmetic treatments by promoting increased skin support and vastly improved overall skin health.
Ultherapy® Can Be Customized to Suit the Individual
Ultherapy® procedures are highly customizable. The ultrasound equipment used in these treatments can be altered to adjust the depth at which the energy penetrates. Our provider can also tailor the results of your treatment by lengthening or shortening the duration of exposure. Best of all, Ultherapy® can be safely combined with a number of other non-invasive cosmetic treatments, which we can discuss with you during your consultation.
