19 Apr Who Qualifies for Ultherapy?
They say that growing older is a privilege, right? We get that, but most of us just don’t want to appear that way. We prefer to look naturally ageless and don’t want to take cosmetic treatments to the extreme. That is why Ultherapy remains one of the hottest cosmetic solutions trending. Famous supermodels of the past like Christie Brinkley and Paulina Porizkova are not happy to say they undergo Ultherapy sessions to maintain that youthful edge and to look attractively recognizable. Subtle tweaking is the modern approach to ageless good looks, and this procedure lifts and tightens your skin to the max.
More Than One Million and Counting
The secret is out: Ultherapy is well-received all over the world, and 95% of the clients surveyed say the cosmetic procedure is worth it one year later. The treatment happens to wear the title of the only FDA-approved procedure that can lift and tighten the skin safely and effectively. There is zero surgery involved and minimal to no downtime.
The ideal Ultherapy candidate is one who has mild to moderate skin laxity. In other words, there is sagging skin visible either along the neck, under the chin, loose skin around the eyebrows or wrinkles on the chest.
The treatment is based on ultrasound energy that can penetrate down to the deepest structural layers of the skin and reach those key tissues. Your skilled aesthetic technician is able to see the tissue layers being treated because of ultrasound’s unique imaging capabilities.
Tapping Into the Collagen Foundation
As we undergo general aging, our collagen factory becomes affected. In other words, the fiber columns of this special protein start to lose their strength. Collagen gives great structure or a foundation to the skin, and when it begins degrading, wrinkles, loose skin and loss of volume start to occur.
Ultherapy zeroes in on the collagen fibers to stimulate new collagen production. It has the capacity to achieve this important mission without the cutting of your skin or disrupting the surface of your skin.
The focused energy that reaches those deep tissues kicks off a collagen regeneration. Ultherapy stimulates collagen growth in the skin tissue at three different layers. This, in turn, helps your body restore the loose skin’s ability to retract. Your face gradually regains its younger shape, position and contours.
Some of the common areas that see improvement include the crepey, sagging skin of the neck, a double chin, jowls, marionette lines, the ‘elevens’ between the eyebrows, the forehead horizontal creases, and lines from your nose to the mouth.
Natural-Looking Facelift Alternative
The wonderful benefits of Ultherapy sessions are their gradual but steady results that begin appearing two to three months post-treatment. Your body takes its time to naturally restore new collagen that lifts and tightens for more youthful facial contours.
It’s not a traditional surgical facelift, but Ultherapy can create modern facial rejuvenation. It’s known as subtle tweaking. People realize that you look very good but can’t figure out how you’ve achieved such a refreshed and look-like-yourself agelessness.
An Ultherapy treatment can take anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes. For instance, during the session, the handheld device is passed across your brows, cheeks, chin, and neck. After the procedure, you can return to your daily regular schedule, including your work-out routine. Your face may be reddish, but this minor issue will subside within a few hours. Some clients may also feel tingling and experience mild swelling, but these, too, will eventually dissipate.
The majority of clients only need one session to achieve optimal results, but some require more visits. Your aesthetic expert will determine an individual treatment plan for you depending on the degree of skin laxity you have.
Ultherapy is a long-lasting cosmetic solution, and its effects can maintain your youthful appearance for up to two years. After that, you may be ready for a touch-up.
Let’s be honest. Gravity and sun exposure are friends to no one, not even the great supermodels of all time. Everyone’s face, neck and body will experience these noticeable physical changes sooner or later. Ultherapy allows us to fight back and with a modern, intelligent approach.
The micro-focused ultrasound of the treatment generates a thermal effect under the skin and jump-starts the collagen factory to begin anew. Without fresh collagen, our faces and necks cannot keep their firm structure. Collagen restores shape, tone and position to the skin.
