There are many different types of cosmetic procedures available for tightening the skin and making you look younger. One of the newer, non-invasive options is Ultherapy, which is also known as ultrasound therapy. If you are bothered by wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin, you might want to know eight facts about this procedure.
Ultherapy uses an FDA-approved technology to treat the skin on the face, neck, and even chest. Around the world, this procedure is used by countless medical and cosmetic professionals. Ultherapy was approved less than a decade ago and has been used on hundreds of thousands of people. It’s considered the best option for tightening the skin of treatment areas outside of cosmetic surgery, such as a facelift, although the results vary by person.
The procedure uses ultrasound technology that works from the inside out. Ultherapy goes deeper than the skin’s exterior layers and works on the tissues within to gently warm and stimulate precise layers of skin that are responsible for collagen production. This means that it helps tighten skin both in the short term and long term. It is non-invasive, doesn’t leave scars, and tightens the skin without affecting its surface.
Ultherapy seems pricey compared with other, similar options. However, although it can cost over $4,000 for a full-face treatment, the price can be lowered depending on the specific area or areas you want treated. Most patients who undergo Ultherapy are so satisfied by the results that they don’t consider the cost a waste of money.
This nearly painless procedure uses the body’s natural healing process to lift and tighten the skin by stimulates tissues at a precise depth below the surface. As a result, you develop fresh collagen over the weeks following treatment, which results in tighter, younger-looking skin.
Ultherapy is not surgery, which means you won’t have downtime and can resume your regular daily activities after treatment. There may be discomfort and minor side effects immediately after the procedure, but they aren’t debilitating to your daily routine.
Although Ultherapy can produce side effects, they’re rare. And if you’re one of the few who experience them, they’re very mild. They usually include numbness in the treatment area, tingling sensations, and tenderness. These usually resolve themselves within a few hours after the treatment.
Because Ultherapy relies on your body’s response to treatment, it takes a while to provide its benefits. After your treatment sessions are over, you should begin to see your skin lifting and tightening within around two to three months. In some cases, the results continue improving up to five to seven months after the procedure.
One of the best aspects of Ultherapy treatment is that the results tend to last longer than with other temporary cosmetic skin treatments. Treatments last for around 60 to 90 minutes and you can expect long-lasting results. In most cases, you can have a single procedure and enjoy the results for up to a year afterward. Your body and the aging process are the biggest factors in determining how long your results last as well.
