The skin procedure known as Ultherapy is having incredibly positive effects on the skin, because it uses ultrasound technology to tone, lift and tighten it. It can tighten the skin in the chest, neck, chin, brow and facial regions. So this is a one-of-a-kind procedure that can perform skin tightening at the highest level. Talk about skin care at its finest!
Below is a recent video from the Dr. Oz Show talking about this topic.
Is Ultherapy Similar to Other Cosmetic Procedures?
Many of you might be thinking that Ultherapy is just like many of the other cosmetic procedures, but nothing could be further from the truth.
To start things off, the first important distinction to make is that this is a nonsurgical procedure. Many skin tightening procedures – i.e. the facelift – require actual surgery. In this case, surgery isn’t even an option. No surgery is involved with this procedure whatsoever, and it’s the reason why we feel it is one of the better options currently out there right now.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
This procedure works wonders because it is used to help stimulate the production of collagen deep within the skin tissue. And the best part is that the collagen production does not happen immediately but over time. This is better because it makes the improvements look more natural over time.
So, you’re not going to see immediate results with Ultherapy. That’s not the way that this procedure works. But within a 3 to 6 month period, it’s like you’re going to be a whole new person. And your skin is going to be really tight, firm, toned and looking gorgeous.
How Long Does an Ultherapy Treatment Last?
Even though your skin is going to continue to age after this treatment is completed, you can expect your body to continue making new collagen within a year after the procedure is completed.
To receive the greatest benefits from Ultherapy treatments, you will need to undergo touchup procedures from time to time. Every individual is different, so it’s hard to pinpoint how many touchup procedures you will need in order to continue looking your best. So this part of the program varies, and you can talk about it with your dermatologist to discover the best treatment protocol to meet your needs.
Is It Safe to Undergo Ultherapy Treatments?
Before diving in, you are potentially curious as to whether or not this treatment is actually safe. Well, we’re happy to tell you that it has been cleared by the FDA, which means that the clinical trials proved that this treatment is safe.
Over 100,000 treatments have been given throughout the clinical trials, and since ultrasound energy already has an excellent track record, using this Ultherapy is incredibly safe. In fact, ultrasounds have been part of the medical experience for more than 50 years.
Are There Any Potential Side Effects?
With most treatments, there are possible side effects and this treatment is no different. A small percentage of people potentially experience tenderness, tingling, and swelling. But it is only mild and quite temporary.
