Uber is no longer one of the only options around these days providing people with a lift; Ultherapy is the other “U” word creating a lot of buzz for lifting the skin and delivering results in a short period of time.
While fillers, lasers, and surgery are all still viable options, Ultherapy is in a league of its own for providing patients with an FDA approved, non-surgical alternative that goes the extra mile by aiding in memory restoration of the skin’s underlying tissue in order to tighten and boost the skin.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
Did you ever think the muted waves of ultrasound could leave you with skin that resonates beyond its surface while silencing its non-surgical competitors? It all begins with a small handpiece being applied to the skin which releases an ultrasound that reaches the surface and beyond to the underlying tissue. The depth of treatment is dependent upon the handpiece being used.
Much like a sonogram where the image of tissue underneath your skin can be seen on a screen, the Ulthera device has the multi-tasking abilities to see under the skin while delivering low-level heat energy to tighten and transform the affected tissue without leaving adverse effects to the surface. In other words, your skin will not show any undesirable signs that you had a treatment, which is one of the many reasons it is acclaimed in New Beauty as “the best in-office treatment for an overall skin tightener”.
Once the low levels of ultrasound heat energy cause the skin to contract, the regeneration process begins: the collagen is stimulated, and over time, the new collagen grows and progressively tightens the skin with a natural lift being the ultimate result.
What Results Should I Expect?
In most cases, a single treatment can incite fresh collagen production, and some patients have even noticed immediate results. Patients can expect peak results during the third month when the treatment has taken full effect.
How Long Is The Recovery Time?
As mentioned earlier, this in-office treatment can be your little secret since there is zero downtime involved and you will be able to return to work or normal activities following the procedure. Although some patients may experience mild puffiness, swelling, or redness after treatment, these are only temporary reactions that should discontinue after a few hours.
How Do I Know If I Am a Good Candidate for Ultherapy?
During your consultation with Certified Plastic Surgery Nurse Liz Clouse, you will provide your medical history to determine if there are any conditions that may exclude your candidacy for Ultherapy. At this time, you may discuss the areas of concern and ask any additional questions you have regarding treatment.
