If you are like many people who are getting older, you have started to notice unwelcome changes in your skin and are considering a skin tightening treatment. You have probably also heard of Ultherapy®, a recent innovation for enhancing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the neck, chin, and brow.
You owe it to yourself to become educated about the Ultherapy® treatment process. Luckily, we have a great deal of experience with Ultherapy® and wish to present you with a brief guide to its many benefits and what to expect along every step of the way.
What is Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is a skin tightening treatment that utilizes ultrasound to non-surgically enhance the appearance of skin that has suffered the effects of both time and gravity. This treatment utilizes your own body’s self-healing response to gradually and gently lift aging skin. It also helps to smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
How is the Procedure Performed?
We begin by thoroughly cleansing your skin and locating problem areas for treatment. Then we apply a special gel using a treatment applicator. At this point, we utilize ultrasound imaging to look deep inside your skin for optimal treatment locations. Then we use a device to transmit focused ultrasound energy beneath the surface of your skin.
What are the Advantages?
Unlike other treatment options, Ultherapy® is a non-surgical treatment method that bypasses the skin’s surface to transmit just the right amount of ultrasound energy where it will do the most good. The ultrasound energy stimulates your own body’s natural healing abilities beneath the skin to regenerate fresh collagen that displays fewer skin imperfections.
One of the main advantages to an Ultherapy® procedure is its great track record of safety. Since this skin tightening treatment uses ultrasound energy to trigger the production of new collagen, you can be assured that you are going to be safe during your procedure.
Ultherapy® is the only non-invasive procedure that has been found to lift skin effectively on the brow, chin, and neck. This FDA-approved treatment does not require extensive surgery preparations. And no downtime is required!
