Most people do not look forward to going under the knife. At the same time, however, they don’t appreciate the various visible signs of aging on their face. If you want to see a real difference in how old you look, but you’re not ready to have a facelift, then you may want to consider Ultherapy treatment, one of the most revolutionary new forms of antiaging treatments. It is a nonsurgical method of lifting and tightening, the face, the eyes, the brow, and even the neck. It employs ultrasound energy to tone and lift skin that has started to sag, thereby improving overall facial appearance.
What Does Ultherapy Treatment Do?
To understand Ultherapy, you have to understand the skin. One of its most importance components is collagen, a protein that creates our tissues, giving it strength, firmness, and form. The older we get, the slower production of new collagen becomes. As a result, we develop skin problems like fie lies and wrinkles. The ultrasound energy provided by Ultherapy works specifically on the SMAS layer, which is the fibromuscular layer, found just below the surface of the skin. The deeper tissue is heated gently, supporting and lifting sagging skin. At the same time, the ultrasound energy encourages the production of more collagen. This means the skin is able to maintain its newly restored youthfulness. Best of all, the treatment does all of this without having to injure the skin in any way.
Ultherapy is becoming increasingly popular and some believe it will overtake Botox. The results are incredibly impressive and it takes no more than an hour to complete it. Furthermore, it focuses on the body’s natural processes, strengthening the skin’s underlying tissues. Botox, by contrast, stops the body’s natural processes.
Ultherapy is completely safe. This is why the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as approved it. Best of all, it has been approved specifically for lifting tissue. Botox, by contrast, is actually approved for the treatment of migraines and excessive sweating. One of the reasons why it is considered 100% safe is because it uses ultrasound energy. This is known to not cause any problems to tissues. This is why it is used, for instance, to monitor pregnant women.
The Benefits of Ultherapy
Ultherapy has a number of clear benefits, which is what is making the treatment so popular. These benefits include:
- The full treatment requires just one session, unless you have very severe laxity, which means you may need to return for a second treatment.
- You will see the full results within no more than three months.
- You do not have to injure or cut the skin in any way as part of the treatment.
- No recovery time is associated with the treatment, meaning you can simply get back to your regular day immediately.
- You can maximize or speed up results by combining it with other types of treatment, including Botox.
- Unlike with Botox, the results do not wear off.
