Ultherapy, a Facelift Without Surgery
- Posted on: Oct 12 2018
Does your face need a little pick-me-up? We know the feeling! Sagging skin is a major aging factor and makes the skin look and feel unhealthy. Since the face and chest get so much exposure to external elements such as UV rays, temperature changes, products, and more, they’re often first to wrinkle and become more lax. If this sounds familiar, we’ve got a non-surgical solution for you: Ultherapy.
What is it?
Ultherapy is one of the most in-demand treatments for non-invasive skin tightening on the market. It’s excellent for the brow, cheek, chin, neck, and chest. Utilizing Ultrasound technology, the Ultherapy treatment is clinically tested and proven to have rejuvenating effects on the skin. The hand piece delivers focused Ultrasound energy to trigger a natural regenerative response, called neocollagenesis, under the skin and stimulate collagen production. This lifts and tightens skin, shrinking lines and wrinkles in the targeted areas.
Since the treatment stimulates your body’s own processes, it ensures natural looking results with no recovery period.
Why do it? No Surgery, No downtime!
With no surgery and no downtime, choosing this treatment is a no-brainer! Since Ultherapy targets deeper layers of the skin, there are no visible marks on the external layer, meaning you can go right back to your day. The treatment itself is also quick: Face and neck procedures generally take 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes about 30 minutes. You may see some improvement immediately, but full effects may take 2-3 months to appear. Instead of a dramatic change, you’ll have a gradual improvement that will leave people guessing and marveling at your healthy skin.
Who should do it?
Ultherapy is a great corrective treatment for both men and women who are seeing laxity and wrinkling in the face, neck, and chest. The specific facial areas that can be treated are the forehead, brows, lip contour, cheeks, and lower face/chin. Ultherapy can be used alone or enhanced with other treatments. For example, you may want to treat the chin to reduce the appearance of a double chin, and refine the effects with dermal fillers injected along the jawline. You can also treat the décolletage to tighten the skin and supplement that with a SilkPeel to reduce acne.
