What Is Ultherapy Skin Tightening?
Maintaining a youthful appearance is a goal most people seek after they have reached a certain age bracket. Keeping your skin healthy is less about your age and more about your skincare regimen. At Allergy & Skin Spa, we offer treatments that will help you to maintain the luster in your skin as well as reducing any fine lines and wrinkles that have already attempted to infiltrate your overall skin. Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment that employs ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally. It is an FDA-approved treatment that stimulates collagen production in your body. This therapy can help you achieve a fresher look from your brow to your chest. Ultherapy may be the right treatment for you if:
- You have a decent amount of elasticity in your skin.
- Your skin is not extremely damaged by the sun.
- You want to moderately lift and tighten your brow, lower face, neck, or upper chest.
How Does Ultherapy Skin Tightening Work?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body. It provides your skin with structure. When the collagen in your skin depletes, the skin starts to sag. The focused ultrasound energy delivered to the skin by Ultherapy stimulates collagen production. This therapy addresses skin problems without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
Unlike other treatments such as radiofrequency, laser, and surgery, Ultherapy avoids the surface of your skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound. This energy triggers the natural response of the skin and jumpstarts the regenerative process that produces collagen. It takes about three months for the results to appear though some patients may see immediate effects. The new collagen provides lift and tightens the skin. The side effects of Ultherapy are minimal. Skin redness resolves within a few hours of treatment. Other side-effects involve tingling, swelling, and tenderness in the area being treated. These side effects are temporary and will dissipate soon after treatment.
What Can I Expect with Ultherapy Skin Tightening?
Before the Ultherapy treatment, you will have a consultation session with our doctor. During your consultation, Dr. Kia will address any concerns you have. He will analyze your skin to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for the treatment. An individual treatment plan will be drawn up for you before the treatment begins. Before starting the treatment, your skin will be cleaned. Dr. Kia will identify the treatment area. He will then apply the ultrasound gel and place the smooth applicator against your skin. To determine the optimal placement of the treatment energy, the doctor will use Ultherapy’s ultrasound imaging to see deep within the skin. Focused ultrasound energy is then delivered deep beneath the skin’s surface. You will feel the energy being deposited into the skin. Comfort level varies from person to person. You may be prescribed over-the-counter medication to address any discomfort from the treatment. Treatment sessions usually last from 60 to 90 minutes, depending on your individual treatment plan. Ultherapy has no downtime and you can resume your regular activities immediately after your treatment.
