Open to Ultherapy?December 26th, 2017 by Dr. Michael Glass
Everything You Need to Know About This Revolutionary Treatment
If you’ve never heard of this treatment, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Ultherapy is used to treat loose or sagging skin around the neck, as well as areas around the chin, brow, and chest. Ultherapy can even be used to treat the knees and inner thighs, which are especially prone to wrinkling.
As we age, our bodies stop producing certain things like elastin and collagen.
These are the proteins that keep our skin taut and resilient. When they start to break down, and our skin no longer produces more, that’s when you start to see things like sagging, pruning, and deeper, more inset wrinkles and fine lines. There are a lot of ways to slow down this process, but time eventually catches up with us all. That’s usually when people turn to cosmetic treatments.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is an alternative to surgical procedures like face lifts and tucks. Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology (yes, the same kind you use to see the baby in your belly) to stimulate collagen production at three different layers of skin tissue. Instead of using knives or needles, Ultherapy sends targeted ultrasound waves below the skin, activating the body’s natural healing processes. This in turn kickstarts collagen production, which means tighter, younger looking skin.
The best part about Ultherapy is that there’s absolutely no downtime.
Unlike surgeries, which require lengthy post-treatment rituals and restrictions, Ultherapy lets you get right back to your routine. Ultherapy is FDA-cleared, safe, effective, and quick. Patients can start to see results within the first three months, with maximum results occuring around six months.
How Come I’ve Never Heard of It?
Ultherapy is recently new as a cosmetic treatment (2009 in fact), though the technology itself has existed for over 50 years.
As a cosmetic treatment, Ultherapy has a flawless track record in terms of safety and effectiveness.
There’s zero risk compared to traditional surgeries, and aside from some initial blushing post-treatment, there’s zero downtime.
