Ultherapy has the hallmarks of versatile treatment when it comes to skin tightening and lifting. Whether you are interested in reducing the excess skin under the chin or other areas of the body, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, or getting a breast lift or a lip flip, the Ultherapy is for you. It uses ultrasound energy, providing a more natural approach to issues that would have formerly required surgery. Technology has transformed how we can improve the look of our skin without taking unnecessary risks.
The FDA has cleared this method of skin tightening, meaning that it is safe to use on the brow, under the chin, the neck and on women’s cleavage. It is currently the only non-invasive treatment cleared for use in the above areas. The FDA’s approval is based on clinical studies of ultrasound and its effectiveness in skin tightening.
Ultherapy focuses on what is under the skin, leaving the surface unchanged. It boosts collagen to areas requiring it. The nature of ultrasound makes the treatment effective, as doctors do not have to guess on what areas to concentrate on by merely looking at the skin. Though imaging, they can send energy to the desired tissue and stimulate the production of collagen.
Using a mix of ultrasound energy and heat, the layers underneath the skin naturally react. The effect is the dermis, the middle layer of the skin and where the collagen gets produced, begins to produce more collagen. The dermis is also the layer responsible for the wrinkles on your face. Therefore, Ultherapy gets to the right heart of the issue. One treatment is enough to make a visible difference.
The amount of time you can expect a treatment to take varies. If you are focusing on multiple areas on the face and neck, then you can typically expect your treatment to take anywhere from an hour to 90 minutes. For smaller areas, 30 minutes is adequate to begin the skin’s revival process.
Anyone seeking to get rid of sagging skin under the chin or the brow would be wise to consider this form of treatment. The popularity is primarily because there is no anesthesia, cuts, or needles required for the procedure. While results differ from one patient to the next, the benefits of treatment with the Ulthera are still significant.
Enjoying the complete maximum benefits of Ultherapy typically takes about two to three months. That is ample time for the new collagen to take effect and tighten the skin. However, it is essential to keep in mind that Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment geared toward reviving your skin. Therefore the treatment may not produce as dramatic an effect as with surgery.
No particular regimen is required before the Ultherapy treatment. After the initial appointment where you state your problem areas and the doctor assesses your skin, all the patient must do is to show up. However, one question remains; is the treatment painful? The answer indeed depends on one’s pain threshold. It is after all energy being deposited beneath the skin. When this is happening, you might feel varying levels of discomfort that typically only last as long as the treatment is being dispensed. Any discomfort is usually mild, however, and your medical practitioner can numb the area or prescribe pain management medication to take before treatment for added comfort.
