Are you someone who wishes to go back in time, about five to ten years ago, when the skin around your face and neck did not look so saggy and aged? Are you also one of those who fears anything sharp and does not want to undergo highly invasive surgical procedures? If any of these sound like you, then Ultherapy may be exactly what you need to improve your appearance.
What Is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is one of the latest innovations in beauty technology that has risen in popularity over the past year. It is an ultrasound treatment that reverses the signs of aging by boosting collagen production and eliminating dead skin cells to reveal tightened and healthy skin within months.
Ultherapy is a non-surgical way to rejuvenate your youthful glow and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It is an FDA approved non-invasive technique that is proven to safely lift and tighten the skin over a course of time.
The Ultherapy Procedure
An ultrasound machine is used to deliver energy to various points of the face depending on your needs. While the process is being carried out, you will feel a tingling sensation, as if some energy is being deposited in certain parts of your face to different depths. The sensation will last for the duration of the procedure and will subside as soon as it is completed. The treatment is not known to cause any excessive discomfort and is safe to use on different types of skin.
Most patients require only one treatment. However, as you grow older the skin might further lose its elasticity and you might need to undergo more sessions.
After the Treatment
As with any facial procedure, your skin might appear a bit irritated and red after the treatment is completed, but will subside in time. You might develop slight numbness and temporary bruising on some parts of the targeted area, however, these symptoms will subside within a few days as well.
Your doctor will discuss further case to case complications that may occur before going forward with the treatment. Complications, however, aren’t common and most individuals will experience an extremely comfortable treatment.
How Safe Is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is an FDA approved procedure that is safe and provides proven results. Ultrasound energy has been used professionally in the medical field for years and is considered to be the safer option when compared to other laser treatments.
What to Expect from the Ultherapy Procedure
Many people go into this treatment expecting the results to be as effective as a Facelift.
Although the results are not as effective, one must understand that Ultherapy involves less invasiveness, cost, and time. It is a much safer and simpler way to get rid of the signs of aging.
The Ultherapy results you obtain will differ in every individual and depends on the boost in collagen levels of the skin. It may take up to two to three months to completely take effect. This procedure is the best bet for people who want a slight to moderate correction to their appearance.
