As you age, your skin is one of the first body parts to take a hit. Especially skin on the face. It starts to show the early signs of aging very quickly. Over time, the skin will eventually lose its elasticity and develop age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet.

There are a number of different ways in which you can try and reverse these signs of aging. While maintaining a healthy lifestyle, eating healthier foods, and taking care of your skin will help to a certain extent; they cannot stop the aging process.

For drastic results, people often opt for facelifts. Another alternative if you do not want to go under the knife is the ultherapy procedure.

What Is Ultherapy?

Simply put, Ultherapy is the use of ultrasound energy to repair sagging skin. Ultherapy utilizes the energy waves from the ultrasound device to tighten the skin without having to undergo an extreme surgery. It is the only non-invasive procedure for facial skin tightening that has been approved by the FDA.

It can be used to lift and tighten the skin on the neck, near the eyebrows and under the chin. It can also help to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. In the ultherapy treatment, your doctor will harness the power of ultrasound energy to tighten and transform the skin around the chin, neck, chest, and eyebrows.

Ultherapy delivers the ultrasound energy to specific areas to boost collagen production. It also uses the traditional imaging done by ultrasound. This allows the doctors to see the multiple layers of tissue within the skin.

They will be able to see what they’re treating and can ensure that energy is delivered to the appropriate area. Ultherapy generates a heating effect under the skin and this heating process kick-starts the production of collagen in the skin.

While you are undergoing the procedure, you may actually feel a slight tingling sensation as the energy is precisely directed towards specific areas of your skin. Comfort levels differ depending upon your skin sensitivity, but the sensation lasts only for as long as the ultrasound device is being used.

Usually, only one treatment will suffice. However depending on the elasticity of your skin and also on how your body responds to the ultrasound energy, you may benefit from another round of treatment.

You may experience slight redness, tingling sensation, or numbing after the procedure but these are temporary and you will soon feel normal. The best part about Ultherapy is that there is no downtime. You can resume your regular activities immediately after your procedure.

As Ultherapy works on stimulating your body’s collagen-producing capabilities, how long the results stay on your skin will depend on your body’s metabolism and how well you take care of your skin.

Ultherapy ensures that your body starts producing collagen but as you age naturally, it will affect how long the effects of the treatment are visible. If you wish to, you could go for a regular touch up treatment to maintain the results for even longer.
