While dermal fillers and surgical procedures can offer great anti-aging results, they may not be right for everyone. At Dr. Michael Jacobs, M.D. Dermatology and Laser Center in New York, NY, our Ultherapy treatments could be exactly what you’re looking for.
How Many Sessions of Ultherapy Do You Need?
It’s natural to see changes to your skin as you get older. But while these changes are natural, they may not be welcome. You may begin to feel self-conscious about the wrinkles appearing on your face, or the way your skin has begun to loosen.
If these are concerns you’re facing, then you might be looking for a solution to them. There are plenty of options out there for you, including surgical procedures and dermal fillers. But while these treatment options provide effective results, they may not be right for everyone. One of the great things about Ultherapy is that you’ll get effective results, and most people need just one treatment session to see results and annual maintenance treatment to maintain them.
What Causes Changes to Our Skin?
Before we can discuss the results you’ll see from this treatment, we need to talk about why you see changes in your skin as you age in the first place. Your skin is made up of many different chemicals, and one of the most important ones is collagen. This protein provides skin with firmness, structure, and elasticity.
While your skin contains a lot of collagen when you’re young, your levels can diminish drastically the older you get. This means your skin is less able to smooth back out after making facial expressions, and it has a tendency to become looser and duller.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
This treatment uses ultrasound technology to deliver energy to the areas of concern on your face and upper body. Your skin has several different layers to it, and the ultrasound energy will target all of them, including the surface layer of your skin, deeper layers, as well as the muscles underneath
The ultrasound technology will heat the layers of your skin. This heat will stimulate your body’s collagen production. Your skin will appear and feel firmer, smoothing out any wrinkles that may have been forming. It will also lift sagging skin. The collagen will also help to tone your skin, helping it appear brighter and more youthful.
What Can You Treat with Ultherapy?
Does this treatment sound like it could offer you the solution you’ve been looking for? You might be wondering what you can target. One of the great things about this treatment is that you can use it essentially all over the face, as well as various other parts of your body. Here’s a closer look at how it can help you.
One of the major areas of your face where you’ll notice a difference in appearance is your cheeks. When you’re young, you’ll find your cheeks full and round. But as you get older, you’ll probably notice volume loss.
This volume loss can make your cheeks appear hollow and gaunt. As your skin also loses elasticity, gravity may begin to pull the skin down, resulting in jowls forming. You can use this treatment to target your cheeks, helping them look fuller, rounder, and more youthful. You’ll also lift any sagging skin.
Volume loss occurs all over your face, including your chin. As you lose collagen, the skin around your chin becomes less firm which can result in your chin weakening. You may also find that the skin around your chin sags and wrinkles, which may not be something you’re happy about.
This treatment will help to put more collagen back into your chin area, making the skin firmer and tighter and reducing or even eliminating sagging.
Have you noticed the skin around your eyebrows sagging? You may have noticed wrinkles around your brow as well as your eyebrows themselves lowering as the skin loosens. This can age your appearance, and your eyebrows constantly lowered can make you look constantly upset or worried.
This therapy provides a great alternative to a surgical brow lift. The skin will tighten and firm, smoothing out wrinkles and helping to lift your brows back up.
When it comes to treating wrinkles and other aging concerns, many treatments focus only on the face. However, your face isn’t the only place where you’ll see wrinkling and sagging. It’s also very likely that you’ll notice some significant changes to your neck as well.
If you’re concerned with the appearance of your neck, then this treatment can provide you with a great solution. It will stimulate more collagen production, tightening up the loose skin and smoothing out wrinkling.
Your decolletage is your chest area. Along with your face and neck, it’s one area where you’ll notice significant volume loss with age. This volume loss will make the skin sag and can age your appearance considerably.
This treatment can offer an effective solution for any sagging and wrinkling you may have noticed on your chest, helping you look younger overall.
Arms and Knees
If you’ve noticed the skin below your arms and knees becoming looser with age, that’s another common side effect of aging. This loose skin might make you feel self-conscious, and you may be avoiding clothes that you used to love wearing because of it.
This treatment provides a safe and effective way to firm up the skin in these areas and provide you with a younger-looking body that you’ll love.
Is Ultherapy Safe?
When it comes to any type of treatment, cosmetic or otherwise, one of the major concerns is often safety. When you receive this treatment, you’ll know that you’re not only getting effective results. You’re also getting safe treatment.
Ultrasound technology has been safely used in many medical disciplines for decades. This therapy has been designed to be safe, and it has been approved by the FDA for skin concerns like wrinkling and sagging on various parts of the body.
Benefits of Ultherapy
Thinking about getting this cosmetic treatment? There are plenty of benefits that you can expect to receive when you visit our clinic for this safe and effective therapy.
One of your available options, if you’re looking into cosmetic treatments, is a surgical procedure. Of course, these procedures may not be ideal for everyone. They can be very invasive, which might not be something you’re comfortable with at the moment.
If you’re looking for a non-invasive treatment that can still offer you incredibly effective results, then this is the treatment for you. A precise applicator will be used to apply the ultrasound technology to the desired parts of your face and body, providing you with a simple and easy treatment.
When you receive your treatment, your results will begin to appear gradually over the next few months. The length of time that your results will last depends on a few factors, especially your skin type. Everyone’s skin is different, so the length of time your results last vary on an individual basis.
However, you can trust that you’ll be getting long-lasting results no matter what your skin type it. Most people find that they are able to enjoy their results for up to a year before needing to return for maintenance treatments.
You’ll Feel More Confident
If the way your skin has been changing as you’ve gotten older has made you feel self-conscious, then this treatment can offer a great solution.
Sagging skin and wrinkles might make you feel uncomfortable with your appearance. By firming the skin and reducing wrinkles, you’ll be able to feel much more comfortable in your skin.
Who Is a Candidate?
If you’ve noticed that your skin is loosening and wrinkling and you’re not happy with the way it’s changed your appearance, then you could be a good candidate for this treatment. It’s great for potential candidates who are in good general health and who are looking to firm their skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
When you come to our clinic, we’ll hold a consultation with you before treatment to make sure this is the right option for you.
