Ultherapy uses the benefits of ultrasound energy to kickstart regenerative processes in the body. This energy, well-known for its use in pregnancy sonograms, serves as a stimulant for the skin to produce collagen, the protein that gives our skin strength and elasticity, reversing the effects of ageing.
The non-invasive, non-laser ultherapy treatment is approved by the FDA to lift skin on the neck, chin and brow. Generally, areas that are treated by ultherapy are the eyebrows, jowls and jawlines, often improving the skin texture and giving the patient a more refreshed look over the course of a few months.
As ultherapy is a relatively new procedure, patients may feel apprehensive about trying out this form of non-surgical facelift. Here are three reasons why Ultherapy may just be the best choice to help you look years younger.
Ultherapy is a non-surgical procedure
Traditional facelifts are performed under general anaesthesia and come with the risks associated with surgery. This means that you would need to take several days of leave from work for the surgery and the recovery afterwards. With Ultherapy, there is no such hassle. The procedure itself only takes about 60 minutes, with little to no side effects after, so patients are able to resume their everyday activities immediately after the procedure is complete.
Because it is a non-surgical procedure, the skin is not disrupted during the Ultherapy treatment. Instead, loose skin will be lifted, toned and tightened from the stimulated production of new collagen beneath the skin.
Ultherapy makes use of the body’s natural repair system
One of the best parts of Ultherapy is that the results come from repair processes that the body naturally undertakes. This means that, unlike a surgical procedure, the results are guaranteed to look natural.
After the treatment, the body will experience a natural wound healing process, producing healthier collagen fibers to reduce the skin’s laxity.
With the increase in collagen production, your body will slowly reverse the effects of age on your skin: your skin will become more elastic, and your eyes will appear more rejuvenated. The effects will slowly occur over the course of two to three months.
The Ultherapy procedure involves minimal pain
While typical facelift procedures are invasive, Ultherapy is not. Therefore, patients can avoid the risks that are usually associated with surgical procedures.
Instead, there is a warm, tingling sensation when the applicator is used to introduce heat into the deeper tissues. This discomfort that is experienced by patients can be minimised by using numbing cream and taking a pain killer.
If the discomfort becomes overbearing, your doctor may apply medication to help you ease the pain. Do consult with your doctor if you have any worries or concerns about the procedure.
