As you age, are exposed to environmental contaminants, or spend time in the sun, collagen breaks down, resulting in skin strength and elasticity loss. As a result, you notice more fine lines and wrinkles on the chin, neck, and face and a change in your eyebrows. But, of course, you don’t really want these signs of aging, and there is a solution to help reduce these signs.
You can try fillers, Botox or Dysport, chemical peels, thread lifts, or a myriad of other cosmetic treatments. Still, a gold standard of non-surgical skin tightening and lifting called Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment that goes deep into your skin to trigger collagen and elastin production. With Ultherapy, you can receive natural-looking results with little to no downtime.
What is Ultherapy?
Using micro-focused ultrasound to generate thermal effects under the skin, Ultherapy triggers cell, collagen, and elastin growth. One of the major natural proteins in your body is collagen, and it keeps the skin firm and tightened, but collagen breaks down as you age, and the skin loses elasticity and strength. Ultherapy is an alternative to an invasive surgical facelift and is a treatment designed to eliminate the common signs of skin aging.
There is no other non-invasive treatment for collagen motivation that goes as deep as Ultherapy. In addition, traditional ultrasound imaging is used, and your technician can watch the layers of skin being treated. This imaging component makes sure energy is directed where it can do the best for your skin.
In only one treatment with Ultherapy, you can see results. The full results will appear over two to three months, and collagen and elastin will grow and lift your sagging skin. The results often last up to a year or more, and there is no downtime with Ultherapy. The best thing about Ultherapy? Not only is it the standard gold treatment in non-surgical skin tightening and lifting, but the treatment is customized to meet your goals.
The Ultherapy treatment is FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, eyebrows, and under the chin. It is also approved to improve wrinkles and lines on the decolletage. You may feel a bit of redness, swelling, or pain in the treatment areas, but these symptoms do go away quickly. However, any adverse events from Ultherapy should be reported to your skincare professional.
Wrinkles and lax skin form in the chest due to natural aging. Too much sun in your younger years can also cause damage to the skin in your chest, and some medications can bring on a crepey cleavage. However, using micro-ultrasound-focused therapy, you can bring back the firmness in your chest.
Ultherapy can improve the skin in your upper chest to make it tighter and firmer, decrease unwanted wrinkles in the decolletage, and give you back a sense of confidence in your chest.
As eyebrows begin to droop, they make you look tired and old. Ultherapy can be used to minimize moderate eyebrow sagging. Ultherapy lifts your eyebrows and helps you look awake and energized. Ultherapy works synergistically to enhance your eyebrows.
Benefits of therapy for your brows include minimizing eyebrow sagging and providing an energic and youthful look. In addition, the treatment takes about an hour, and there is minimal downtime.
You may not like the profile of your face and especially in the chin area. Aging causes you to have a sagging chin and gives you the look of a double chin. Ultherapy firms the skin around the chin by using energy and heat to trigger collagen production. You can see results almost immediately. Collagen growth continues to improve over two to three months.
Unfortunately, one of the parts of your body that show the first signs of aging in your neck. As collagen and elastin production decreases with age, your neck becomes wrinkled. One of Ultherapy’s benefits is correcting the signs of aging on your neck. The treatment stimulates collagen production, which firms and tightens loose skin.
The benefits of Ultherapy for the neck include:
• Firming loose skin.
• Counteracting the appearance of aging.
• Stimulating the production of collagen.
You are finished with the treatment in about 30 to 60 minutes, and there is minimal downtime.
Ultherapy results are not permanent, and you may need to follow up treatments to keep your skin tight and firm. However, the full results appear after 2-3 months (due to collagen regrowth), and the results last up to a year.
