When it comes to lifting the skin on the neck, chin, and brows, Ultherapy is the only non-invasive therapy approved by the FDA. Ultherapy uses micro-focused ultrasound to lift and tighten loose skin over time, without causing any damage to this skin. If you are feeling a bit apprehensive about undergoing this procedure, the following questions and their answers might help you make an informed decision.
Is Ultherapy safe?
Yes, absolutely! Ultherapy is one of the proven and tested treatments. Currently, Ultherapy is a popular rejuvenation treatment performed in more than 75 countries, with over 1.5 million treatments carried out globally till now. In addition to this, ultrasound technology has an extremely great track record as it is being used in the field of medicine for more than 50 years.
What does collagen do? How does Ultherapy restore the creation of collagen?
Undoubtedly, collagen is a natural protein that provides skin its youthfulness by keeping it firm and toned. As we start to age, collagen breaks down which results in losing strength and elasticity of the skin. Ultherapy utilizes micro-focused ultrasound to produce a thermal effect beneath the skin. The thermal effect of Ultherapy jump-starts your body’s own process that creates fresh, new collagen.
How is Ultherapy different from other cosmetic procedures?
As we have mentioned above, Ultherapy is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses time-tested ultrasound technology to encourage the formation of new collagen deep down the skin’s surface.
Keep in mind that the production of new collagen is a time-taking procedure, meaning results can become more apparent over two to three months, and sometimes up to six months. The procedure of Ultherapy can take a maximum of ninety minutes, based on the area treated, and the best thing is that there is no downtime afterward.
Can Ultherapy replace a facelift?
Ultherapy is popularly known for treating the deep foundational layer; however, it won’t duplicate the outcomes of a surgical facelift. Whether you know it or not, Ultherapy is one of the best alternatives, especially for people who aren’t ready for surgery.
Can Ultherapy treat turkey neck?
As you now know that Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure approved by FDA to tighten neck skin, this process is typically designed to treat “turkey neck”- the common aging sign! Ultherapy can help you achieve a younger look without surgery or downtime.
How long do the results of Ultherapy last?
As the Ultherapy procedure restores an individual’s own collagen production, the longevity of outcomes will also depend upon the individual. While outcomes surface over a course of two to three months, the results can last up to a year or two.
Though Ultherapy treatment creates new collagen underneath the skin, a person’s natural aging process will precisely tell for how long the results will be visible on the outside. Future touch-ups will help provide more control over the process of aging which is different for different individuals.
