We’re happy to tell you that this procedure is excellent to help tighten, tone, and lift the skin. And it can do this on many areas of the body including the chin, chest, face, brow and neck. So this procedure is very effective in many areas that typically require skin tightening.
Ultherapy and the Difference between Other Cosmetic Procedures
So many people are currently wondering if Ultherapy is the perfect procedure for them. And they are also wondering if there are any major differences to this treatment as opposed to other cosmetic offerings. We are happy to tell you that there are definitely certain differences that we will fill you in on right now.
The first major difference is that unlike most cosmetic procedures that require you to go under the knife, this one does not. This is a nonsurgical procedure that uses ultrasound technology to tighten, tone, and firm the skin.
And our favorite part about this particular procedure is that it literally requires no downtime whatsoever. It helps to stimulate collagen production and create new collagen growth over a period of 3 to 6 months. So you should not expect to see results immediately, but expect to get fantastic results over time.
Since this procedure uses ultrasound imaging, it actually helps to target layers of tissue and ensures that it effectively utilizes this energy to create collagen growth. The great thing about this treatment is that we already know its safe because ultrasound has been used in medicine for many years, and it actually works, which is also good to know.
How Long Can I Expect an Ultherapy Treatment to Last?
Everybody is different and everyone is going to react differently to this treatment. But on average, recipients of this procedure can expect to still have new collagen growing after a year of receiving this treatment. This is a good thing because as you age, your collagen production typically slows down. But with this procedure your collagen production is going to continue to improve when it should be becoming slower.
So expect to see great results even after a year of getting the initial treatment. And your doctor will tell you about touch up therapies that can keep the process going and keep you looking young and beautiful for as long as possible.
Is This Treatment Safe?
As mentioned, ultrasound technology has been used as a medical intervention for more than 50 years. So yes, this is an incredibly safe choice and one that absolutely works. So there’s nothing to fear and you do not have to worry about any serious side effects, although some do experience redness, tingling, swelling, and tenderness but it is only temporary and quite mild.
