New Procedure Offers Younger, Refreshed-Looking Skin Without Invasive Surgery
As we grow older, there are many benefits to be had: we gain knowledge, wisdom and confidence. Unfortunately, with age also come some not-so-great side effects. As we age, time inevitably takes its toll on our face, often in the form of wrinkles or loosening of the skin. We all want our skin to young and fresh, but are not keen on undergoing invasive surgery such as a face or brow lift. For those looking for a boost in the appearance of their skin without the stress or cost of surgery, there is a new procedure available called Ultherapy, a simple and safe option that allows your skin to look healthy, young, and vibrant.
Ultherapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin. Unlike lasers, Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin, specifically targeting the deep, structural skin tissues. Using ultrasound technology, Ultherapy actually works from the inside out to lift and tighten skin non-invasively. This procedure stimulates the deep structural support layers of the skin – including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift – without disturbing the surface of the skin. To learn more, watch this segment from talk show “The Doctors” that offers helpful information and shows the procedure being done.
With Ultherapy, there’s no surgery, downtime, or extreme change. It creates a natural, noticeable effect on the skin. With Ultherapy, you can go about your day after a single, 30-60 minute in-office procedure. Results will unfold over the course of 2-3 months and some patients have reported continued improvement for up to 6 months.
The Ultherapy procedure has proven to be safe and effective in clinical studies and tens of thousands of patient treatments worldwide. You are able to return to your normal activities right away, and there are no special measures you need to take. Your skin may appear flushed immediately after the ultrasound treatment, but any redness should disappear within a few hours. It is not uncommon to experience slight swelling for a few days, or tingling/tenderness to the touch for a few weeks following the procedure, but these are mild and temporary in nature.
