There are several solutions out there to help you achieve younger and healthier-looking skin. One of the latest cutting-edge treatments available is called Ultherapy. Ultherapy has gained a lot of popularity in the past few years.
Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure that serves as an alternative to a traditional facelift. The procedure corrects signs of aging like wrinkling and sagging. It’s an FDA-approved solution that stimulates collagen production, which in turn helps restore the health and structure of the skin tissues.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
Ultherapy targets areas under the skin with carefully focused ultrasound energy. This energy heats up those areas just enough to stimulate collagen production.
There are generally three layers that are aimed at by the applicator. The deepest layer is the muscle layer, while the skin and wrinkles form in the first and second layers. Once the ultrasound energy hits these layers, it triggers the production of collagen and elastin protein. This helps restore the skin’s original firmness, minimizing wrinkles and sagging.
Preparation for the Ultherapy Treatment
There is very little preparation that needs to be done for an Ultherapy procedure. You can continue to exercise, drink, eat, and even follow your usual work routine before and after the procedure is carried out. However, experts do advise avoiding the use of cosmetics for a while.
The Ultherapy Procedure
Before applying the ultrasound gel, we will clean the targeted areas. The Ultherapy device is then placed against the skin. An ultrasound monitor provides a detailed view of the tissues. The device’s settings will be adjusted based on what is seen on the monitor.
The treatment then begins. During the procedure, you may experience a tingling sensation and a feeling of warmth. Once the procedure is completed, the applicator is removed.
A single session can last about 90 minutes depending on the extent of skin tightening and rejuvenation the patient requires. For instance, facial Ultherapy takes around 30 minutes, while it can take almost double that time if both the neck and the face are being treated.
What to Expect After Ultherapy Treatment
You won’t be needing any downtime after Ultherapy, so you can get right back to your daily routine after the procedure is complete. You can go back to work, play sports, and even socialize.
The initial results of the procedure can be noticed in a matter of days. There may be slight variations depending on each person’s ability to generate collagen and elastin. Complete results may become noticeable in a few months as the tissues continue to produce new collagen and elastin.
After the results begin to fade over time, you may choose to come in for another session to maintain your youthful skin. Speak to your doctor to learn more.
