Everybody loves a soft and tight skin, but we all know that time is the biggest enemy of young and plump skin. At one point, the skin will lose its elasticity and begin sagging, looking dull, lifeless and dry. This happens because the skin stops producing sufficient collagen, the compound that makes it look firm and smooth. Anti-wrinkle treatments are far from being efficient and cosmetic surgery is not so much wanted because it is uncomfortable, painful and has a long downtime. Luckily, there are methods that can make the skin look younger again, with little pain or discomfort, and without being invasive.
- What is it?
Ultherapy is the ultimate treatment that will restore the firmness and smoothness of your skin, reversing the effects of time on your face, neck and décolletage area. This treatment consists in ultrasounds, not being surgical and invasive. The goal of the treatment is to stimulate the skin to resume its regenerative processes, making it look plumper and younger. It will reduce the wrinkles and smooth lines on the skin’s surface, giving you a youthful appearance.
- How is it different than other modality?
First of all, Ultherapy is non-invasive and non-surgical, so there is less pain, low discomfort and no downtime to this treatment. It is the only treatment that is cleared by the FDA for skin lifting. It will not just promise to make you look younger, but it will also do this, by efficiently reducing the effects of gravity and time on your skin. All these could be accomplished without downtime or any after care treatments afterward. You can easily resume your daily activities after the procedure is completed.
- How is it different than other ultrasound procedure?
During the Ultherapy procedure, ultrasound imaging is used to clearly see the skin layers of the patient, which allows the doctor to make sure that the energy will go right where it needs to be. Thus, the treatment is highly efficient. Practically, the doctor will see where the treatment needs to be applied, such as SMAS or going into the second layer of skin. The risks for the ultrasounds to hit the bone of fat layer, and being lost this way, are inexistent.
There is no other non-invasive procedure that can be as efficient as Ultherapy, only surgical facelift providing the same results. Thus, it is a great alternative for those persons that are not ready to have surgery yet, managing to obtain amazing skin rejuvenating results with the help of this method. Lasers barely go beyond the first 1.0 mm of the skin’s layer, radiofrequency passing beyond 1.5 mm, only ultrasounds managing to reach as deep as 4.5 mm. This makes the method efficient, but also very safe, Ultherapy being suitable for any type of skin, regardless of color and structure. Difficult to treat areas, like neck and chest, are easily treated with this method, the results being tightening and lifting of the skin’s layer. The skin on the face will benefit from the same results, your appearance being younger, with a skin that looks more radiant, animated, and healthy.
