Are you bothered by the appearance of loose and sagging skin that appears on your face, neck, or chin area? Sagging skin is one of the hallmarks of the aging process and can easily give away your age. Although this development is inevitable, its premature appearance is something that can be avoided using a treatment called Ultherapy.
What Is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a type of non-surgical skin tightening treatment utilizing safe ultrasound energy to both tighten and lift sagging skin in a very natural way. An Ultherapy procedure works by triggering the formation of new collagen through the delivery of focused ultrasound energy below the surface of your skin. The procedure has the advantage of not requiring the disrupting or cutting away of the surface of your skin, so your recovery time is much shorter than cosmetic surgery.
The treatment is a very safe and natural way to combat sagging skin. It triggers your body’s own healing response to gradually and naturally lift excess skin that may be located on your chin, neck, or brow area. It is also able to smooth décolletage lines and wrinkles.
No Needles Needed
Unlike some forms of treatment like radiofrequency, lasers, and surgery, Ultherapy completely bypasses your skin’s surface to transmit the precise amount of ultrasound energy where it is needed the most and at the correct temperature. The treatment triggers your body’s own regenerative abilities and the formation of new collagen to replace the collagen found in sagging skin.
What Can I Expect During My Treatment Session?
After we thoroughly cleanse your skin and identify treatment areas, we apply a special gel to your skin, along with a smooth applicator. The next step is using ultrasound imaging to get a good look underneath your skin for the determination of the ideal placement of ultrasound energy. We then transmit this energy under your skin’s surface.
You should expect no downtime whatsoever after your treatment session. You can resume your daily activities immediately with no special measures needed. Any skin flushing after your treatment is extremely temporary and should fade within hours.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If your skin has become overly lax, you would likely make a good candidate for the treatment. If you are unhappy with loose skin on your neck, a lowered eyebrow line, sagging skin under your chin or eyelids, you may make a good candidate.
