Dealing with age-related blemishes is one of the most aggravating aspects of growing older, and many people spend a tremendous amount of time trying to revitalize their skin with expensive ointments or hide their imperfections with makeup. Ultherapy® is a non-invasive treatment that quickly and safely minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with nothing more than ultrasonic waves.
Ultrasound and Your Skin
Ultrasounds were originally used to map the inside of the human body, but researchers eventually realized that those waves might have other uses. When ultrasonic waves are set to a specific frequency, they will penetrate deep into the dermis and “trick” the body into thinking that the skin has been damaged. As a response, the treatment site is flooded with powerful proteins like elastin and collagen. Over the course of the following weeks, those proteins regenerate the skin and eradicate a wide variety of blemishes.
Benefits of Ultherapy® Treatments
There are now dozens of anti-aging treatments to choose from, but very few are as effective as Ultherapy®. This procedure improves the appearance of your skin by gently heating all layers of the dermis and epidermis. Most of our patients begin to notice improvements after just a few weeks, and those results could last for years with the proper aftercare.
Is Ultherapy® Right for Me?
This is an ideal treatment option for patients who are no longer happy with their appearance because of fine lines, wrinkles, or other age-related imperfections. Many patients choose Ultherapy® over invasive procedures because they aren’t ready to spend weeks in bed recovering from an operation.
In order to achieve your cosmetic goals, you might need a series of treatment sessions. Those appointments should be spaced a few weeks apart so that your body has enough time to refill its store of elastin and collagen. If you would like to further enhance the results, then you might want to consider additional cosmetic treatments with your Ultherapy® treatments.
