As we grow old, our skin can begin to sag and develop wrinkles around certain areas. This happens because the collagen in your skin tissues break down due to aging causing your skin to lose its youthfulness and become less firm and elastic. If you are looking for a non-surgical skin treatment, Ultherapy is a new and transformational skin care treatment option available here at Michael I. Jacobs, MD.
What Is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a new non-invasive treatment that uses ultrasound technology to lift, tighten, and tone sagging skin. Ultherapy works by stimulating and triggering the formation of new collagen beneath the skin’s surface.
What Areas Does Ultherapy Treat?
Ultherapy can be effectively used as a treatment option for sagging skin on various body parts including:
- Below the arms and the knee area
How Safe Is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy uses the ultrasound technology which has been a safe and successful treatment option for years. It has also been been cleared by the FDA as a reliable skin care treatment.
What Results Will I Get?
Ultherapy uses micro-focused sound energy enabled by the specialized ultrasound technology to reach skin depths unreachable by other cosmetic procedures to treat the skin. Ultherapy will recondition and stimulate the production of collagen. In return, it will improve your appearance by giving you a lifted eyebrow, tight skin around the jawline, chin, and other areas, to give you a refreshed and toned look. Ultherapy may show results immediately and continue to improve in time following treatments.
Ultherapy is also a great alternative for a facelift and for those who want to elongate the effects of cosmetic procedures.
Who is a Candidate?
You are a suitable candidate for Ultherapy if you have a loose skin which feels and looks less firm on your eyelids, under the neck, chin, and have wrinkles on the chest, below the arms, and even the knee area. If you are looking for an effective treatment for reversing aging signs without having to undergo invasive surgery, you could also benefit from treatments.
How Long Do the Effects of Ultherapy Last?
How long the results last differ with different individuals. Patients can enjoy results for up to a year. However, a person’s natural aging process is still in progress, and therefore one may need touch-ups to control the aging process. A single Ultherapy is normally enough, but some patients may find additional treatments useful.
Ultherapy is an effective way to achieve firmer and lifted skin. It can also be useful to younger people who want to ”stay ahead of the game”. It can also help prolong effects of cosmetic procedures and surgery.
