Long-term results for tighter skin have always required surgery. These procedures leave scars, require a recovery period for healing and may need to be performed in the future. Ultherapy is a breakthrough treatment that aims to rejuvenate your skin so that it is tighter, healthier and clearer than before without the need for surgery. It can provide you with results similar to surgery without requiring you to deal with scars of excessive recovery periods.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy utilizes ultrasonic waves to transmit energy. These waves are specially tuned to avoid transmitting energy to healthy cells while selectively destroying tissue deemed as undesirable. When this tissue is destroyed, the body naturally begins the process of rejuvenation. The lack of incisions allows the body to focus on replacing the loose skin, which in turn makes Ultherapy more efficient and less harsh on the body than traditional surgical procedures.
The ultrasonic waves utilized in Ultherapy allow it to provide similar results to surgical procedures with the unique ability to treat other issues with the skin besides loose epidermis layers.
What Can Ultherapy Treat?
Ultherapy’s greatest strength is in the versatility it employs. It can treat everything from loose skin to liver spots when utilized by an experienced professional.
The most common conditions treated by Ultherapy include:
- Conditions Affecting the Skin on or around the Neck, Eyes or Cheeks
- Deep Lines
- Loose Skin
- Some Scars
- Uneven or Damaged Collagen
The reason Ultherapy treats these conditions so effectively resides with the fact that these conditions tend to exist in the deeper layers of the skin. Ultherapy’s ultrasonic waves penetrate the skin and destroy uneven tissue while promoting the growth of new collagen through neocollagenesis.
The best part of this procedure is that it utilizes your body’s natural ability to repair itself. There are no additional drugs, fillers or potential toxins, nor are any incisions required for the procedure. Your body takes care of removing damaged tissue while naturally rejuvenating your skin and the underlying structures.
When Should Ultherapy Be Used?
Ultherapy should be used in any situation where surgery is required by not desired.
Patients who may carry an elevated risk of infection, who are unable to heal from surgery, or who desire fewer lasting marks upon their skin should choose Ultherapy over traditional skin lifts.
Patients with fair skin or lines originating in the collagen structures underneath the skin may benefit more from Ultherapy than they would traditional lifts. The neocollagenesis process tends to provide better results in these situations than other types of treatments.
Is Ultherapy Right for You?
Ultherapy is one of the few non-surgical skin lift procedures approved by the FDA. This means it can treat many skin conditions without the need for surgery, which in turn can provide you with smoother and tighter skin.
