Ultherapy is one type of cosmetic procedure that can reduce the signs of aging by softening wrinkles, improving sagging skin, and making your skin look more youthful overall. If you are considering ways to improve your skin without surgery, Ultherapy might be the right choice.
Ultherapy is frequently compared to a non-surgical facelift because the goal of the procedure is to firm and tighten skin, thereby looking like you have turned back time. Since the procedure does not require surgery or any downtime, it can be done without a major impact on your life and allow you to resume normal activities faster. Everyone's experience is different, but there is some risk of discomfort during the procedure and swelling in the days after. To minimize discomfort, your doctor might give pain medication before the procedure. To prepare for any swelling, you might also want to schedule the procedure when you have a few days off.
Unlike many surgical and non-surgical options, the results of Ultherapy give you a natural appearance. Each area that is treated with the ultrasound stimulates collagen, which starts to breakdown as we age and can contribute to wrinkles and sagging of the skin. When new collagen is stimulated, the skin can appear firmer and any lines become less noticeable. This subtle change in the skin is in sharp contrast to other procedures that may freeze muscles to prevent expression lines from forming or the use of surgical procedures that can make your skin abnormally tight. The subtle changes from Ultherapy are generally preferred because your bare skin can look more youthful and you might notice your makeup applies better. Additionally, there is little chance of looking like you "had work done."
Ultherapy can be used on different areas of the face and chest, which is critical when you are trying to reduce the signs of aging. One of the tell-tale signs something is "off" is when someone has changes to their face that might make their skin appear smoother, but their neck and chest continues to have wrinkles or sag. Since Ultherapy can be used on many areas of the face and chest, you can have both areas treated at the same time and possibly create a seamless appearance. When used on the chest, Ultherapy can dramatically reduce creasing that might occur between the cleavage as we age which can make you uncomfortable in v-neck shirts, bathing suits, or evening wear.
If you want subtle, but meaningful improvements to your face and chest, Ultherapy can be the right choice. With no downtime and natural results, it is the ideal procedure to improve your appearance.
