If you are unhappy with the way time has taken its toll on your appearance and you want to reverse the signs of aging, you might want to consider Ultherapy®. It is a type of non-surgical facelift that can help to restore tighter skin that is free from sagging, lines and wrinkles.
The traditional facelift is a surgical procedure that requires a significant recovery time afterwards, during which the individual will be away from his or her normal routine. Many people undergo this type of surgery, while many more avoid it because of its disadvantages. Ultherapy® may be your answer to the look you want without the downsides associated with surgical procedures.
Lines and wrinkles start to form on your face when the skin starts to become loose. Not only does this cause those unwanted features, but it also causes the skin to sag as well. Loosening of the skin has its origins in the reduction of collagen. This is that substance that provides fullness and makes the skin look tight. More of it is produced during youth. As you age, your skin will not replenish the protein at the same rate. The subsequent reduction in the amount of collagen present will cause it to become loose.
Ultherapy® is a treatment method that uses ultrasound energy to produce benefits in a therapeutic way. When performed as a non-surgical facelift, the high-frequency sound waves that are emitted will cause the skin tissue to be gently warmed. The heat will cause more collagen to be produced in the deeper skin layers. As the collagen grows, the skin will become tighter and, over the following weeks, have an appearance that is more youthful.
There is a high likelihood that you have already been exposed to the same type of ultrasound energy that is used for Ultherapy®. Ultrasound is used as an imaging technique to check the function of organs and other soft tissue in the body. It is also used during pregnancy to make sure the baby is developing normally. If you have had such a procedure, you know that there is no discomfort associated with it. There are no side effects either.
