Skin degeneration takes many forms, which include age spots and pronounced wrinkles. These effects can make permanent changes to the skin that creams and lotions can only temporarily alter.
This means that permanent changes to the underlying skin cells must occur to revitalize the skin. Surgery is the most common treatment for age-related degeneration, but it comes with a long list of undesirable side effects, like scarring and a risk of infection.
As such, non-surgical skin tightening treatments are becoming more and more popular. Ultherapy® represents one of the greatest breakthroughs designed to tighten the skin without the need for complicated and sometimes dangerous processes.
What is Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is a non-surgical treatment designed to alter the underlying skin cells by introducing energy to the body. This energy selectively targets the structures responsible for wrinkles and other conditions while leaving healthy skin cells alone.
The result is a treatment that can effectively reverse some or all of the degeneration that has occurred within the face. This can make a patient look years younger without many of the undesirable side effects that other treatments can bring.
How Does Ultherapy® Work?
Non-surgical Ultherapy® introduces ultrasonic waves to the skin. These waves are designed to harmlessly pass through healthy skin cells while transforming into heat when problematic collagen cells are reached.
The collagen cells that create uneven surfaces on the face are destroyed by this heat. The lymphatic system takes the altered cells away, and then the body begins healing areas where collagen loss has occurred.
A positive side effect of this process is the way the heat encourages blood flow to affected tissues. This results in faster healing and a more beautiful restoration of the face.
The tightening of the face occurs gradually as the body heals itself. This results in some immediate effects that only progress with time.
Why Choose Ultherapy®?
There are a few reasons to choose this treatment, which include:
- Avoiding painful procedures like facelifts and neck lifts.
- Creating gradual improvements in the face rather than trying to dramatically alter it overnight.
- Encouraging blood flow to the face, which can help to create additional improvements.
- Increasing the effectiveness of other treatments by significantly improving the underlying collagen structure of the face.
- Quick treatment sessions.
