Ultherapy-A New Alternative to the Facelift

There is no getting around the aging process. We all have to face the realities of aging no matter what we do. How we handle aging, however, is the key to doing it gracefully.

As we age, we develop dark circles under our eyes, wrinkles, discoloration on our face, and we have a rough time losing weight. For many, a facelift is an answer to all of their prayers, but if surgery is not your cup of tea, there is a new alternative to giving your face a fresh new look.

Ultherapy is a new FDA approved procedure used to take the place of surgery. It utilizes ultrasound energy to lift and tighten skin around the eyebrows, under the chin, on the neck, and chest. Firming collagen is produced through heat stimulation through the surface of the skin in order to penetrate the skin’s deep tissue.

Collagen is the protein that gives the skin its firmness and elasticity. Ultherapy works from the inside out by stimulating the production of collagen to strengthen the skin’s foundation. As we age, the skin and muscles begin to sag due to sun exposure, collagen loss, and the loss of elasticity. Ultherapy reverses these effects, giving your skin a more youthful, lifted look.

You can possibly see results in about 3 to 6 weeks. The procedure takes approximately sixty to ninety minutes to perform on the face and neck and approximately thirty minutes on the chest. You can schedule touch up treatments to aid in keeping up with the aging process.

The best part about Ultherapy is it has minimal side effects. You may experience slight swelling, flushness of the skin, tenderness, or tingling within the first few hours of treatment. You may also feel a little numbness or develop bruising. These effects go away fairly quick and you do not have to have any down time after the procedure unlike the down time needed after having a facelift. You can continue with your normal activities immediately proceeding an Ultherapy treatment.

There are many procedures you can undergo in order to freshen your look. Some are invasive and some are minor, however, of them all, Ultherapy is proving to be a viable choice with minimal risk.
