You consider yourself a “take-charge” person when it comes to your physical health and wellbeing. You eat all the right foods and you constantly “listen to your body” as a wise part of your healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately, your body may be telling you it’s not a young sprinter any more.
While you can try to deny the message for as long as possible, you may have given thought to cosmetic surgery as way of shaving years off your facial appearance. And while the facelift may be great for some, the thought of multiple incisions and a lengthy downtime turns you off.
Have you considered Ultherapy? It’s new. It’s non-surgical. And it promises results that are as natural looking as those produced by any traditional surgical procedure.
Stimulating Collagen with Ultrasound Energy
The concept behind Ultherapy is simple yet effective. Take high-energy ultrasound waves, target them to penetrate into the deeper tissues below the facial skin where most surgical knives never go, and energize away.
The ultrasound vibrations slowly heat the subcutaneous skin tissue foundation to stimulate collagen and new skin cell growth. Collagen is a natural protein found in abundance in youthful skin that gives the skin its luxurious tone, tightness, and volume. As we age, the body produces less and less collagen, causing the skin to grow thinner and lose its youthful elasticity. Collagen-depleted skin also tends to bruise more easily.
Ultherapy, an FDA approved technology, bypasses the surgeon’s knife while targeting only those problem skin surface areas of the face and neck whose source really is found deep below the dermal layer of the skin. Ultherapy works more deeply than laser skin therapy and more than 100,000 treatments have been performed worldwide yielding excellent results. The procedure is proven to lift and tighten the skin around the brow, neck, and jawline, and can be done in just one treatment lasting roughly an hour.
Cosmetic surgeons are incorporating Ultherapy into their practices for use in the successful treatment of mild to moderate skin sagging. The benefits of the procedure include a less tired, more alert look around the eyes and a tighter neck and jawline. The results are slower to begin to appear and are said to reach full impact in about a year following the treatment.
It seems many patients these days are seeking non-surgical alternatives to facial rejuvenation. Talk to a qualified plastic surgeon and see how you would benefit from Ultherapy.
