Skin Tightening with New Advanced Ultherapy
Okay, let’s face it: we can work out until we’re toned like yoga instructors, take care of our skin as though we carry royal blood, and eat like well-honed machines. What we can’t do is avoid all signs of aging. One of the first tell-tale signs is that slight softening in the jaw and neck area. We may ask ourselves how it happened, but the fact is, it has happened.
As long as we refuse to go gently into the good night, we might as well fight that nagging sign of gravity. Consider Ultherapy your own non-surgical face and neck lift.
Rather than using a laser, Ultherapy utilizes ultrasound. Although we can’t hear the sound vibration produced by ultrasound, it can and does impact our skin. Ultrasound is pulsed to the area below the skin surface to the dermis. Its vibration and appropriate level of heat contract the dermis, causing it to react by producing more collagen. That collagen is what gives us new, tighter skin cells.
The entire procedure takes approximately one to two hours depending on the area being treated. Most patients describe what they feel as warmth and a “prickly sensation.” You may look flushed afterward like you just left an intense workout session, but that should fade within one hour.
How many treatments you need depends entirely upon the condition of your skin, to begin with. Some patients do well with one treatment, while others need two or more in order to achieve their desired outcome.
Depending upon where on your face you had the treatment performed, you can expect such results as a tightening and lifting of the brow, midface, jawline, jowl, and neck. Patients also often report more even skin tone, and more youthful, smooth skin. Recent studies are being performed to treat other body areas such as chest, back of arms, stomach, and back of thighs.
Why not make Ultherapy part of your arsenal as you fight the signs of aging?
