Are you bothered by skin laxity that makes you appear older than your actual age? Would you like to be treated for your sagging skin but do not want to undergo a surgical procedure? If so, an innovative skin tightening technique called Ultherapy may be just what you are looking for. This non-surgical face and neck treatment helps to tone and lift loose and sagging skin without the need for any downtime.
How Does Ultherapy Differ from Other Types of Cosmetic Procedures?
This treatment affects deep layers of skin tissue that are typically reached using traditional cosmetic surgery. It also allows us to use ultrasound imaging to really see the tissue layers that are being targeted by the procedure and ensure that focused ultrasound energy is delivered right where it needs to be for the greatest effectiveness.
How Does the Treatment Work?
We use a special device to transmit targeted ultrasound energy into the deeper foundational layers of your skin. This stimulates your body’s natural production of collagen to rejuvenate skin that has become overly lax. No incisions are needed, and there will be no disruption to the surface layers of your skin unlike some types of skin tightening treatments.
Who Makes a Good Candidate for Ultherapy?
If your skin has become so relaxed that it appears less firm, you may make a good candidate for the procedure. One of the first signs of maturing skin is sagging skin around the neck or jowls or a lowered eyebrow. The procedure is also a good treatment choice for those who would like to stay ahead of the game or prolong the effects of previous surgery.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
Your ultrasound treatment can help to correct mild to moderate sagging or loose skin by renewing and rejuvenating the collagen found under the skin’s surface. It can also lift a brow that opens up the eyes by removing excess skin around the eyelids. It helps you look more refreshed and youthful while improving the appearance of sagging skin on your neck or jowls.
What Will My Ultherapy Results and Recovery Be Like?
Patients do not normally need any downtime and may resume their normal daily activities immediately after their treatment. You may notice some initial results immediately after your treatment, but most of the toning and lifting will occur over the following three months, as old collagen is replaced by rejuvenated, elastic collagen. You should notice further improvements for up to six months after your Ultherapy procedure.
Ultherapy patients typically have some remaining fresh collagen one year after their treatment, but their skin will continue to age normally. Some touch-up procedures in the future can help you keep pace with this aging process.
