The face is one of the first parts of the body to show signs of aging. Many men and women struggle with loose, saggy skin that makes them appear older than they feel. A common way to address this issue is through facelift surgery. However, some clients would prefer a nonsurgical solution to their aging concerns.
Ultherapy® is an excellent treatment option for Rochester patients who want to improve skin texture without going “under the knife.” In this blog post, we’ll highlight the benefits of the procedure and help readers decide if this treatment is right for them.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a nonsurgical procedure that uses ultrasound technology to promote collagen production and tighten skin. By stimulating the body’s natural healing process, patients can enjoy natural-looking results with little-to-no downtime. Ultherapy is best used to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on various parts of the body. It is commonly used on the face, neck, and chest, and it can firm up the jawline and jowl area.
What is an Ultherapy session like?
During a treatment session, the Ultherapy device is placed against the skin, where it delivers ultrasound energy to the target areas. This energy bypasses the skin’s surface, so it’s not damaged or disrupted during treatment. The ultrasound energy begins to heat the tissues in the deeper layers of skin slowly. As the skin is stimulated, it begins to produce more collagen naturally.
Comfort levels vary from patient to patient, but the sensation from the ultrasound energy only lasts temporarily. The procedure takes between 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the areas being treated.
What are the benefits of Ultherapy over a facelift?
Many patients want to tighten loose skin around the face but may feel uneasy with the idea of traditional surgery. Ultherapy is a great nonsurgical alternative because it requires no anesthesia or extensive recovery time. It can also be used on multiple areas of the body, while a facelift can only address the face and neck area.
It is true that facelift surgery can create more transformative results. However, for patients who want to boost their skin texture and tighten saggy folds without surgery, Ultherapy remains an excellent choice for the right candidate.
