Correct that Aging Neck and More With Ultherapy
Ultherapy is a proven treatment that can improve the appearance of thin, loose skin on the neck, chest, and other areas. This treatment has been around for some time, so we think it deserves a re-introduction. When newer technologies come along, it's easy to think of them as new and improved. This may be the case with some new inventions but, in the world of beauty and anti-aging, Ultherapy still holds a great deal of value.
How Ultherapy Works
The Ultherapy device is approved to tighten sagging skin and superficial tissue on the face, neck, and chest. The technology smooths lines and creases and can also tighten up the jawline and lift a descending brow all by using powerful ultrasound energy. First, the Ultherapy device utilizes ultrasound waves to identify the perfect depth of skin for treatment. Then, ultrasound energy is delivered to that layer of tissue. When absorbed, the ultrasound waves heat the targeted tissue, creating a cascade effect of tightening and ongoing collagen production. This process occurs over several weeks and results in firmer, smoother, younger-looking skin.
Benefits of Ultherapy
One of the primary benefits of the Ultherapy procedure is that it achieves noticeable, rewarding improvements in just one session. These do take some time to build, often a few months, but they develop naturally and with no indication of obvious work. This is appealing to people who prefer to manage their aging skin without plastic surgery. By targeting deeper layers of tissue for collagen remodeling, Ultherapy works from the inside out rather than the outside it. There is no downtime in which patients must stay out of the limelight to recover. While there may be some post-treatment redness, this typically does not get in the way of normal activities.
Additional benefits of this treatment include:
- Ultherapy targets the deepest layers of the skin in ways that other modalities cannot.
- The Ultherapy device is FDA-cleared based on proven safety and efficacy observed in clinical trials. The device is cleared for use on all skin types.
- Results are long-lasting. Studies indicate that the results of one Ultherapy session can last up to two years, after which a repeat treatment can be performed.
- Treatment is comfortable and nonsurgical.
Who Is a Candidate for Ultherapy?
You may be a great candidate for Ultherapy if you have begun to notice sagging and skin weakness on your neck or under your chin. If your upper chest has wrinkles and creases, you may love what Ultherapy can do. This treatment is also often sought by adults who are frustrated at the appearance of a descending brow but would like a longer-lasting solution than Botox and one that is more conservative than a surgical brow lift. The treatment can also be done on the jawline and neck area as an early measure to slow the progression of these signs of aging.
