A Beginner’s Guide to Ultherapy

If you are noticing signs of aging in your skin that are causing it to sag or droop but you don’t want to jump all the way in and get a facelift, this article is for you! Ultherapy is a great method to keep the skin on and around your face strong, firm, and healthy—without surgery.

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a non-invasive, non-surgical method of giving your skin in the neck, chin, and brow areas a lift! This procedure uses ultrasound technology to provoke collagen production within the skin, renewing its tone and giving your skin a rejuvenating boost.

How does Ultherapy work?

Collagen is the protein that is responsible for the firmness, youthfulness, and tone of the skin. Ultherapy uses an ultrasound to create a thermal effect, which initiates the repair of existing collagen as well as the production of new collagen.

This process occurs over time, so the results of Ultherapy treatment become more and more evident as time passes. Usually, only one treatment is necessary to achieve the desired results. Additionally, the ultrasound imaging during the procedure allows us to be more precise so we can apply the treatment where it will be most effective in the skin for the best results!

The Pros of Ultherapy

Short procedure time. Most Ultherapy treatments take about an hour, and there is no downtime needed after the procedure. To make things even better, only one treatment is needed in most cases for the desired effect!

Long-lasting. The production of collagen caused by Ultherapy continues to occur over time, so results can become more and more visible 3 to 6 months after treatment. The effects of just one treatment can last up to a year, and touch-up treatments can help keep your skin looking young and fresh even as you continue to age!

Minimal side-effects. Side effects from Ultherapy are generally mild and temporary. Patients may experience redness, tenderness, slight swelling, or tingling in the area of treatment.

Ultherapy is a great option for people over the age of 30 who have noticed an increased laxity to the skin, or even just want to get ahead of the aging effects that make your skin droop. You deserve to look as good as you feel at any age, and Ultherapy could be a great option to help you get there! Interested in learning more about Ultherapy?
