What is Ultherapy?

What is Ultherapy?

Are you interested in looking younger? Are you concerned that cosmetic surgery is your only option? Are you beginning to wonder if you’ll ever regain your youthful appearance?

While many people immediately turn their focus to cosmetic surgery, others have come to find that Ultherapy is exactly what they need in order to counteract the negative effects of age and gravity on the skin without surgery.

As a non-surgical treatment, ultherapy is much safer than traditional cosmetic procedures. Best yet, through the use of ultrasound treatment, this therapy uses the body’s natural regenerative response to gently lift skin on the neck, chin, and eyebrows, all the while smoothing wrinkles and eliminating lines.

What Makes Ultherapy so Special?

It’s a common misconception that cosmetic surgery is the only way to lift skin. Not only is Ultherapy non-invasive, but it’s also FDA approved.

Thanks to the use of ultrasound technology, the practitioner can view the many layers of the skin, allowing him or her to focus the treatment on the appropriate area.

In addition to traditional Ultherapy, you can also opt for Ultherapy Décolletage Treatment. With this, you no longer have to live with unsightly wrinkles and lines on your chest.

Is this the Same as Laser Treatment?

Ultherapy and laser treatment are often considered one in the same, however, nothing could be further from the truth. There are some key differences between the two, all of which are critical to understand.

To start, Ultherapy uses ultrasound imaging as a means of treating damage below the surface of the skin.

Furthermore, it stimulates collagen production as to lift tissue over time (results are typically noticeable within two to three months).

Conversely, laser treatment is unable to reach the deepest layers of the skin, meaning it only treats the surface.
Note: unlike Ultherapy, laser treatment is not FDA approved to lift the skin.

How Long Does it Take?

While the length of treatment depends on a variety of factors, including your skin condition and areas being treated, you can expect it to take somewhere in the range of 60 to 90 minutes.

Once complete, you’re free to resume normal activity, without any restraints.

What About Side Effects?

One of the primary benefits of Ultherapy is the lack of side effects.

After treatment you may see some redness at the treatment site, however, this typically disappears after a couple hours. It’s also possible for some tingling or swelling to occur, but it is only temporary.

If you’re looking to lift your skin without taking on an expensive and invasive cosmetic procedure, Ultherapy could be just what you need.
