Aging brings a number of unwanted changes; sagging skin is one of them. Drooping and sagging skin around the eyes, neck, and chest is unappealing to look at and betrays our age. Sagging skin makes us conscious and forces us to take certain measures to hide it. Some people avoid wearing deep v necks which reveal drooping skin around the neck, while others wear makeup to conceal some unwanted skin around the eyes.
Advancements in modern technology have brought an easy solution to fixing the issue of sagging skin in the form of ultherapy. What is ultherapy? Let’s find out.
The ultrasound beams penetrate deep into the skin without affecting the top layer. Ultherapy is a more convenient process compared to a facelift. Full face ultherapy treatment can be performed in under 60 minutes. The brow area takes around 10-15 minutes, while the cheeks can be covered in 30-40 minutes. It is a painless procedure that is safe to perform. When subjected to high-intensity ultrasound beams, the patient may experience slight discomfort characterized by a prickling sensation of heat or prickling.
Now that we understand how ultherapy works, let us take a look at the benefits of this treatment.
Unlike a facelift, ultherapy does not require surgery and is a minimally invasive process. Wrinkles, fine lines, and drooping skin can be fixed without undergoing surgery and inviting unnecessary complications or side effects that are common for any surgical procedure.
Ultherapy can take 20-50 minutes. After the treatment is completed, the patient is free to go home and carry on with day-to-day activities. Because it is a non-surgical treatment, there are no side effects from this procedure which may cause a hindrance in going back to a normal routine.
Ultherapy increases the dermal thickness and gives natural-looking, aesthetically appealing results that last for 2-3 years before needing retreatment.
