Is Ultherapy® the Right Skin Tightening Treatment for You?

Written on June 1, 2016 at 4:35 pm

Whether is occurs as a result of dramatic weight loss or the natural aging process, sagging skin can keep you from feeling confident in your appearance. For years, surgical removal of excess or loose skin was the only option, but now there are noninvasive options that can be very effective. Here’s a closer look at one of treatments, Ultherapy®, and how to know if it’s right for you.

How It Works

Ultherapy® is a completely noninvasive, skin tightening treatment that uses ultrasound waves to combat loose, sagging skin. These waves penetrate and heat the skin, causing a lifting and tightening effect and promoting the production of new collagen which promotes a firmer, more youthful appearance.

Minimal Downtime, Maximum Results

Unlike some noninvasive cosmetic procedures, Ultherapy® doesn’t require a series of treatments and can deliver impressive results in just one appointment. Downtime is very minimal, and most people return to their normal daily routines the day after treatment. Some improvement to skin tone, texture and firmness should be noticeable instantly, and the results will continue to develop in the following months as new collagen is produced and promotes a firmer, rejuvenated appearance.

Many have described the results they receive from Ultherapy® as a nonsurgical facelift because of the significant yet natural-looking youthfulness it can give to the skin of the face and neck. Those treated with Ultherapy® can enjoy long-lasting results, with most people not needing a maintenance session for 2 or more years.

Multiple Treatment Areas

Few limitations exist as to where Ultherapy® can be used to tighten skin. This innovative skin-tightening treatment can be used to tighten and firm sagging skin on the face, neck, arms, abdomen or knees. Ultherapy® can even be used to promote plumper, more youthful-looking lips through collagen stimulation.
