Collagen is likely one of the most important components of healthy skin. More collagen tends to lead to denser collagen layers, which in turn leads to skin that sags less and feels more firm. The problem is that collagen production tends to sharply decline as an individual ages. This leads to degeneration within the skin, which in turn leads to the development of fine lines and full-blown wrinkles.
Ultherapy® offers a way to stimulate your body’s collagen production. It simultaneously destroys loose and undesirable collagen structures while promoting your body to create more collagen. When coupled with a healthy lifestyle, this can help to make you look younger and more attractive.
What is Ultherapy®?
This treatment utilizes ultrasonic waves to transfer energy beneath the skin. These waves transform into heat when they reach cells of the right density, which in turn allows for undesirable structures to be destroyed without harming the cells above or beneath them.
Unlike surgical procedures, these treatments are gradual and non-invasive. This means that they will produce results as your body heals itself. Improvements could take a series of sessions over the course of a few weeks to months.
How Does Ultherapy® Work?
The “secret” to this treatment’s success resides in the way it transmits energy deep within the skin. This allows it to forgo damaging the upper layers of the skin while destroying the loose collagen fibers that the skin may not consider as damaged.
This allows the body to begin healing the underlying collagen. It removes the destroyed collagen before beginning the production of new, healthy collagen tissue. This results in dense collagen structures, which in turn results in healthy and youthful-looking skin.
Encouraging the production of collagen is something unique to treatments like Ultherapy®. Surgical procedures can only “close the gap” when collagen is loose, which can result in less-than-desirable results.
When compared to similar treatments, Ultherapy® tends to be the preferred treatment of choice for patients and practitioners alike. The easy process of treatments coupled with the stunning results it can bring makes it a favorite.
Is It Safe?
Ultherapy® is one of the safest methods of promoting collagen production. It is safe for all ages and skin types, though it tends to be the most effective on patients with minor to moderate sagging or collagen-related issues.
