If you want to treat the signs of aging on your face, neck, or chest but aren’t ready to commit to a surgical procedure like a facelift, there is a revolutionary anti-aging beauty treatment that will give you the results you’re looking for. At Dermatology & Skin Care Associates in Mason, OH, we offer ultherapy as a way to restore collagen, reduce wrinkles, and get a lifted look, all without surgery.
What Does Ultherapy Treat?
Ultherapy has been deemed the non-surgical facelift for a reason: it works. If you want to treat the signs of aging that have developed on your face, neck, décolletage, this treatment is the perfect solution.
Ultherapy is a non-invasive way to treat a variety of issues that develop on the face and body as a result of the aging process. Specifically, it will treat and improve the appearance of the following conditions:
- Wrinkles on the face, neck, and chest
- Fine lines
- Loose skin, also known as skin laxity
- Imbalanced skin texture on the face, neck, and chest
What Is It?
Ultherapy is an FDA-approved, non-invasive, anti-aging treatment that utilizes sound energy to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes and increases collagen production.
In doing so, it can address the signs of aging that cause the most common cosmetic concerns in highly visible areas such as the face, neck, and décolletage, also known as the chest.
How Does It Work?
Many anti-aging treatments like lasers use light energy to combat lines, wrinkles, and other problematic skin conditions but ultherapy is different. It uses ultrasound energy, which is sound energy, to treat the signs of aging. This energy reaches deeper into the layers of the skin than other forms of energy can, and as a result, the body converts it to heat which leads to an increase in collagen production as well as a repair and bolstering of preexisting collagen.
As collagen levels begin to gradually increase over the weeks following treatment, the skin in the area treated gradually becomes smoother, tighter, and brighter. Fine lines and wrinkles begin to fade and you will begin to notice your skin taking on a much more youthful appearance. Ultherapy does all of this simply through the use of ultrasound energy. It requires no harsh chemicals, toxins, needles, incisions, or any type of surgical procedure.
What Happens During Treatment?
During your treatment, your technician will place the ultrasound device on your face, neck, or chest. Once it makes contact with your skin, the screen associated with the device will present a digital image of the deep layers of your skin.
This imaging allows the technician to target the treatment areas with skill and precision. Typical treatments take anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes depending on the area and the size of those areas that are being treated.
Is It Painful?
This treatment is not invasive, therefore it does not cause pain. You will feel the ultrasound energy when the device comes into contact with your skin, which most patients describe as a feeling of intermittent warmth.
We can apply a topical numbing product to your skin before treatment if you would prefer not to feel any kind of sensation.
Is There Any Downtime?
One of the benefits of this treatment is that it doesn’t require downtime. You can schedule your appointment at a time that is most convenient for you, and you can resume your normal daily activities immediately following your treatment.
Unlike surgery, you won’t have to spend time recovering from this treatment. It is a safe, results-driven, rejuvenating treatment that will help transform dull, aging skin without any risks or required downtime.
How Long Do Results Last?
You may notice your results beginning to appear within 72 hours of treatment and final results will develop two to three months post-treatment. Once your results develop, you can expect them to last anywhere from one to three years.
When you notice that your results have begun to fade, you can return for a follow-up treatment to stimulate more collagen and elastin production and experience all of the benefits of this treatment once again.
Am I a Candidate?
If you are looking for a surgical-alternative that will help lift drooping skin, increase collagen production, and reduce and even eliminate fine lines and wrinkles on your face, neck, and chest, this treatment will give you the results you never thought possible without an invasive procedure.
If surgery isn’t something you can commit to, whether for emotional, physical, or financial reasons, this treatment is accessible and is one that you can commit to.
