As we age, our skin ages, too. This is because as the years go by our skin produces less collagen and elastin, the proteins that keep our skin looking youthful, hydrated, and taut. As our skin begins to show signs of aging, we often lose confidence in ourselves and in our appearance.
To reverse the signs of aging, Danny Harrison, MD, FACS of Sky Vein & Aesthetics offers Ultherapy®, an effective non-surgical alternative to the traditional facelift. That’s why we’ve compiled this helpful guide to how Ultherapy can help restore your youth and vitality.
How Ultherapy works
You’re likely wondering what Ultherapy is. An innovative, non-invasive treatment, Ultherapy reduces the appearance of:
- Fine lines
- Crepey skin
- Other cosmetic skin concerns
It’s been on the market for some time, too. FDA-cleared since 2009, Ultherapy helps treat lines and thinning on your brow line, cheeks, eyelids, neck, chin, and chest. You can treat common stubborn problems like crow’s feet, forehead creases, and décolletage lines.
Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound energy to stimulate your skin’s production of collagen and elastin, the aforementioned youthful proteins.
It’s the ultrasound energy’s regenerative effects on your skin that leads to the reduction of wrinkles.
We know that when it comes to choosing a skin treatment, you have a lot of options. The market is saturated with treatments like chemical peels, microdermabrasion, luxury facials, laser resurfacing, and injectables like Botox®, Dysport®, and Restylane®.
So, you’re likely wondering, “Why Ultherapy?” Well, the aspect of treatment our patients most appreciate about Ultherapy is its convenience. Ultherapy is a great treatment with no downtime.
Treatment is completely noninvasive. That means no injections, incisions, or recovery time. Although Ultherapy may sometimes be uncomfortable, we use the Pro-Nox system to help you relax during your treatment.
What kind of results can I expect?
Your results will vary, depending on your skin’s ability to produce collagen and elastin. You will start seeing results in 3 months with maximum benefit at about 6 months. The change is gradual so no one will know you have had a cosmetic procedure. But you will be delighted when they ask “have you lost weight?” or say ‘“you look so rested!”
