Aging is an inevitable part of life, but looking your age doesn’t have to be. As we get older, our bodies naturally produce less collagen, and this can lead to loose skin and an overall appearance of dullness. Before, your only options for achieving younger, more radiant skin were a facelift or filler injections. Fortunately, this is no longer the case. It’s now possible to restore a youthful lift in a safe and non-invasive way with a process called Ultherapy.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is an FDA-approved treatment that uses the power of ultrasound energy to enhance the skin on your face and other areas. Ultrasound technology has been safely used in the medical field for decades, and providers are now able to harness that power to achieve more youthful-looking skin without surgery or downtime.
How Does It Work?
The procedure uses what is known as “microfocused ultrasound” to stimulate your body’s natural collagen production deep under the surface of your skin. This is what will ultimately give you the results you’re looking to achieve.
During the procedure, our provider will also be using traditional ultrasound imaging in order to see the tissue layers being targeted with the ultrasound device. This allows for a more precise and effective treatment.
Because the procedure is meant to kickstart your own natural collagen production, the full extent of the results is not immediately visible. Collagen production takes some time, so you can expect to see a natural, gradual improvement in the weeks and months following the treatment.
Is Ultherapy Right for You?
It will ultimately be at the discretion of our provider whether or not Ultherapy is the right treatment course for you, but in general, it is a quick and well-tolerated procedure that most people can benefit from.
