We’ve all had that moment when we wake up in the morning, look at ourselves in the mirror, and are unpleasantly surprised to see that we’ve aged. Maybe you noticed it creeping up on you or maybe you were taken by surprise, but either way, it happens to all of us eventually. Time and gravity take their toll, as well as the fact that aging means our skin produces less collagen and elastin proteins, so it doesn’t hold up as well as it used to. You may not be at the point of needing a facelift, which is why we are proud to offer Ultherapy® to lift and tighten the skin without surgery.
How Ultherapy® Works
When your skin starts to develop wrinkles and begins to sag, Ultherapy® is an option that is proving effective again and again. We can use an ultrasound device to view images of the sub-layers of your skin. We do this to determine where we need to focus our efforts to obtain the best possible results to return the youthful appearance of your face and neck. Next, using ultrasound energy to penetrate deep into the sublayers of your skin, we let these targeted sublayer regions heat up significantly.
After the treatment, your body is going to start producing more collagen and elastin proteins again. This production will continue for some time after the treatment. This will help to tighten and fill the sub-regions of skin. The result will be a reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, and areas where sagging has occurred.
Ultherapy® is Quick and Easy
Perhaps the best part about Ultherapy® is that you can have it done and be back to work on the same day. With Ultherapy®, there is no real downtime or lengthy recovery period. It’s entirely non-surgical and convenient.
