Ultherapy Skin Tightening
One of the latest advances in non-surgical methods to help tighten and lift skin is Ultherapy. Ultherapy is a safe and relatively short procedure that helps skin restoration. The process uses ultrasound technology to help restore tissue underneath the skin to help tighten and lift the skin.
By using ultrasound technology, Ultherapy allows physicians to see underneath the skin and the area that will be treated. It produces better results than many non-invasive techniques. After treatment, results occur gradually over a period of three to four months.
Ultherapy offers an approach in which the patient has very little “downtime,” not needing much time for recovery. It is often best used around the jaw line, eyes and the area under the chin. It does not use needles, cutting or scarring and creates a look that is natural. The skin layer that is most targeted by the focused ultrasound is the same muscle layer that plastic surgeons tighten when they perform a facelift.
How Does Ultherapy work?
Ultherapy utilizes a small device on the skin which emits an ultrasound to reach the tissue beneath the skin. The depth of the treatment is controlled by the hand piece. The device delivers heat energy at low levels that tightens and remodels the affected tissue, without leaving signs on the surface of your skin. The reaction to the low levels of heat energy causes the skin to contract immediately. The heat energy stimulates your collagen which will cause it to grow new over time. When the new collagen grows it will gradually tighten the skin, resulting in a natural skin tissue lift.
