Ultherapy is an FDA-approved skin tightening treatment that eradicates a wide variety of unwanted blemishes. While this treatment is a popular option for loose skin throughout the face and neck, Ultherapy can also be carried out on the arms, abdomen, flanks, hips, and thighs. Following your treatment, your blemishes will disappear before your eyes as your skin becomes firm and toned. If you are tired of dealing with loose and damaged skin, it might be time to schedule an Ultherapy appointment.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Even though this procedure is exceedingly effective, you should consider a few different variables before you schedule your first appointment. This treatment is going to lift and tone your skin, but you must be prepared to protect your skin if you want the results to last. Sunburns and harsh beauty products could severely damage the outer layers of your dermis and result in premature aging. That being said, most healthy adults who have realistic expectations make excellent candidates. Ultherapy is a wonderful alternative to facelifts and other invasive procedures, and it might be your best option if you aren’t ready to spend weeks in bed recovering from an operation.
The Science Behind Ultherapy
If you want to enjoy long-term results, then you need to treat the root causes of your skin damage. Your skin is a resilient organ that should withstand damage for years, but there may come a point when your body can no longer produce enough collagen and elastin. Those two proteins keep your skin firm and trigger the production of healthy new cells, and that is one of the reasons why many beauty products contain collagen and elastin. When your body uses up all of those proteins, you will begin to notice issues such as sagging skin and discoloration.
Ultherapy is an innovative procedure that triggers the production of collagen and elastin. Unlike many other treatments that only work on the surface of the skin, this technology actually sends pulses of ultrasonic energy deep into your soft tissue. Following an appointment, the treatment site is flooded with healthy new cells and fresh growth factors. The full results of this procedure are usually noticeable within a few months.
Your Fresh New Look
Everyone reacts differently to this treatment, but most patients notice changes within a few days of the first appointment. For world-class results, you might want to schedule a follow-up appointment or have other areas of the body treated. After those appointments, you must protect your skin as much as possible and drink plenty of water. If the results ever begin to fade, then you can easily schedule touch-up appointments once every few months. Patients also have the option of combining Ultherapy with other non-surgical treatments such as dermal fillers, microdermabrasion, and laser resurfacing.
