Skin encapsulates so many qualities due to the way it comprises the majority of our outward appearance. This is why small blemishes like loose skin and age spots can make you appear substantially older than you are. The problem is that most treatments for these conditions require surgery. This leads to most people allowing their problems to persist, which means that skin only sags further and wrinkles become deeper as time passes.
The good news is that new non-surgical treatments are becoming available. Non-surgical Ultherapy® represents one of the most advanced treatments that can help you make your skin look more youthful.
What is Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® represents a distinct alternative to surgical restoration when it comes to skin tightening. It doesn’t use scalpels, stitches or needles. It relies purely upon transmitting energy into the skin that is designed to transform into heat when it reaches certain cells.
It accomplishes this by sending ultrasonic waves into the skin. These waves harmlessly pass through healthy skin, but they transform into heat when they reach cells with a certain density. This could be the form-giving collagen beneath the skin, cells with higher concentrations of melanin and so on.
The cells that become heated break down. This leads to the body removing them before creating new, healthier cells designed to replace the old ones. This is what results in old collagen being broken down, then replaced by new cells that give a tighter and firmer appearance.
Why Should You Choose Ultherapy®?
This treatment has a number of unique benefits when compared to traditional treatments for skin degeneration. This includes:
- Effectively treating the source of the problem – Ultherapy® aims to treat the underlying skin cells responsible for skin degeneration. Unlike dermal fillers, for example, this means that more than just the symptoms are treated.
- Reduced discomfort – Since there are no incisions, non-surgical Ultherapy® tends to heal more promptly and with less discomfort. This allows patients to remain comfortable in their own skin while still receiving effective skin tightening treatments.
- Fewer complications – Another advantage this treatment exhibits is the fact that it comes with the risk of fewer complications when compared to treatments like facelifts. This makes it substantially safer for individuals with compromised or weakened immune systems.
- Long-lasting restoration – Rejuvenation from Ultherapy® tends to last a substantial amount of time in healthy individuals with a stable weight. Touch-up treatments may be needed to fight further degeneration of the skin, but these treatments should be convenient.
