As you get older, you’ll begin to experience the inevitable effects of the aging process. One of the problems that many people encounter as they get older is having loose and saggy skin. Most people go for expensive and invasive treatments to try and fight back against these changes.
Modern cosmetic medicine has rendered these invasive treatments obsolete with the introduction of Ultherapy. This treatment is a non-surgical neck as well as face treatment that utilizes ultrasound energy to lift as well as tone loose and saggy skin. It does this without any significant downtime.
How Is Ultherapy Different From Everything Else Out There?
Ultherapy works by targeting tissue deep below the skin. This area can normally only be reached with invasive cosmetic surgery. One of the benefits of using Ultherapy is that it provides ultrasound imaging. This lets a cosmetic surgeon see the layers of tissue that are being targeted during the treatment, allowing them to deliver the appropriate amount of energy to the designated areas.
Since Ultherapy focuses on stimulating the growth of collagen, it is much safer than other procedures. Collagen production takes time which means that the results will become more apparent as time passes. The procedure also takes much less time than other procedures depending on the area being targeted. It can take anywhere between 30 to 90 minutes.
Who Is A Good Fit For Ultherapy?
People with a certain degree of laxity where they look and feel less firm make good candidates for Ultherapy. People with loose skin under their neck as well as chin who may or may not have lines and wrinkles on their chest make good candidates. Typically, patients are 30 or older with mild to moderate skin laxity. However, younger patients can also opt to undergo the procedure.
Are There Any Serious Side Effects?
The side effects of Ultherapy are very mild and are always temporary. The most that patients report is slight swelling, tingling or tenderness. When compared to the side effects of other facelifts on the market, Ultherapy comes out on top.
Is There Any Downtime?
Another benefit of Ultherapy is that there isn’t any downtime. Normal activities may be resumed immediately after the procedure. There aren’t any post-treatment measures to be followed after the procedure is completed.
Is Ultherapy Safe?
To put things into perspective, Ultherapy is currently being marketed to more than 60 countries around the world. To date, there have been 1 million treatments performed globally. Ultherapy is also cleared by the FDA for lifting the skin on the neck, chin, and brow. It is a safe procedure that has helped many patients experience outstanding improvements in their facial aesthetic.
Are Multiple Treatment Sessions Required?
Most patients only need a single treatment to experience the benefit of Ultherapy. However, there are patients who would benefit more from multiple treatments. This all depends on their degree of skin laxity as well as their body’s response to the production of collagen as well as the ultrasound.
Ultherapy is a fantastic option for people looking for non-invasive, non-surgical, and inexpensive cosmetic surgery.
