For the most part, when individuals think about how their bodies change as they get older, they think of the wrinkles that appear on their faces. While it is definitely true that the aging process can take a toll on an individual’s face, it is not the only area of the body affected by the signs of aging; aging skin also begins to develop on the neck, chest, hands as people get older.
The décolletage is one of the most delicate areas of the skin affected by these signs of aging. Because it is so delicate, it can be difficult to address with traditional aesthetic treatments. Fortunately, a non-invasive, simple treatment solution for signs of aging in this area is now available to interested patients — Ultherapy.
Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to tighten and lift the skin. When the device is passed over the décolletage area, it is absorbed by the inner structures of the skin, stimulating the body’s healing process. It encourages skin rejuvenation by producing more collagen, a structural protein vital to how tight, soft, and youthful the skin appears to be. Currently, Ultherapy is the only ultrasound-based skin rejuvenation treatment that is FDA-approved to revitalize the skin on the décolletage.
Fortunately, patients do not need to worry about any of the things that typically come with recovery after a skin lifting technique, like scarring or extended downtime. While side effects like redness or tingling are common, these usually subside within a few hours of receiving treatment. Many patients liken the sensation of an Ultherapy procedure to tiny amounts of electrical energy being passed over the skin. Overall, the Ultherapy treatment itself is relatively comfortable and easy to tolerate, typically taking only 30 minutes for décolletage rejuvenation.
Because Ultherapy is a non-surgical treatment, patients typically do not need to worry about experiencing any significant amount of downtime. Following treatment, patients will notice that the décolletage looks a little bit tighter and firmer after treatment. As time goes on, the rejuvenation in the décolletage will gradually become more and more noticeable.
