Most of us have several age-related skin problems that render our once-supple and firm skin loose and lifeless. Over time, as we age, our skin loses elastin and collagen protein, which provide a support system for healthy, youthful, and soft skin. In addition to this, our facial muscles also end up losing their strength, contributing to the loosening of skin around our cheekbones and neck region.
Apart from the aging process, there are a variety of other factors that might prove to be catalysts for drooping skin. These factors include sun damage, exposure to pollution, stress, lack of sleep, and nutrient deficiency.
In order to deal with the detrimental effect of all the aforementioned factors on the health of our skin, there are a number of complicated medical procedures that involve extensive surgical intervention. However, with the advent of technology, a safer and completely non-invasive procedure called Ultherapy has been introduced to the medical world.
What Is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is the first of its kind, a non-surgical procedure that has been approved by the FDA. The procedure involves use of focused ultrasound energy waves with the aim of stimulating the tissue to produce collagen in larger quantities, a natural process called neocollagenesis.
The ultrasound waves penetrate the skin at an optimum temperature, up to a depth of 4.5 mm, and make use of the body’s natural regenerative response for healing of damaged tissues. The procedure uses conventional ultrasound imaging. This allows the surgeon to have a visual image of the tissues being treated and ensures that the treatment is performed with utmost precision and accuracy.
Ultherapy is used to lift the skin under the chin, on the eyebrows, and on the neck. The procedure also helps in smoothing the wrinkles and lines on the décolletage region. To sum it all up, Ultherapy basically provides a complete non-surgical facelift from your brow region down to your chest.
What Are the Benefits of Ultherapy?
Ultherapy provides a safe, natural, and non-invasive alternative to surgical facelift procedures that involve incisions into the skin and create post-surgical marks. It is an effective and popular non-invasive treatment that relies on the body’s natural regenerative process to tighten loose skin, which ensures long-lasting results.
Additionally, because Ultherapy is a non-surgical option, there is no downtime afterwards. It will not necessitate any post-operative care. Thus, it is a more suitable alternative for people with little time to spare.
The fact that ultrasound waves have been incorporated in medical treatments and procedures for more than five decades now shows that Ultherapy poses no harm to the patient. In addition to this, all Ultherapy practitioners are provided extensive training to ensure a highly safe and accurate treatment.
Since Ultherapy aims at jump-starting your body’s slowed-down natural regenerative response, the results keep building over time and continue to improve up to six months after the treatment.
