Are you annoyed by the development of sagging skin on your face, jowls, or other areas? A breakdown in collagen is one of the main culprits when it comes to the development of overly lax skin. Sudden weight loss can also lead to the development of sagging skin. No matter what the cause may be, if you find yourself dealing with this common problem, you may want to consider Ultherapy®.
What is Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is a non-invasive skin tightening procedure that utilizes safe ultrasound energy for tightening and lifting skin in a natural way. The treatment works by the stimulation of new collagen production through the delivery of focused ultrasound energy under the surface of your skin. It targets the foundational layer of your skin that is a frequent target of cosmetic surgery, without a disruption or the creation of surgical openings on your skin’s surface.
How Does it Work?
Ultherapy® affects foundational skin layers like the deep dermis that is tightened using face lift procedures. Since we are able to bypass the outer layers of your skin, no downtime is required. Everything that is happening is occurring deep under the surface layers of your skin.
Unlike procedures involving surgery, radiofrequency, and lasers, this technique completely bypasses the skin surface, delivering the precise amount of ultrasound energy exactly where it is needed to stimulate the production of new skin tissue.
What Should I Expect During My Procedure?
After we have thoroughly cleansed your skin and located specific areas of treatment, we will apply an ultrasound gel and applicator to your skin in the treatment zone. Then we will use ultrasound imaging to visualize under the surface of your skin to guide placement of the ultrasound energy. We then deliver that energy under the surface of your skin.
Would I Make a Good Candidate for the Procedure?
The Ultherapy® treatment is most suited for those concerned about skin laxity. The typical patient is over the age of 35 and would like some skin tightening and lifting while avoiding surgery. Others simply want to prevent sagging skin or slow down the process of facial aging.
The results of the procedure are not as dramatic as those of a traditional facelift. It is for those who need only subtle changes to their contours. It offers a safe, non-invasive treatment alternative for those who want to prevent skin laxity.
