As time, gravity, and the environment take their toll, many people find themselves looking in the mirror and wondering if there is anything they can do to fight back. Of course we all know plastic surgery exists and that it is an option, but not everyone wants to undergo surgical solutions. What if there was an easier and less invasive way to fight the effects of time? At Mariposa Medical Spa, now there is.
We’d like to introduce you to Ultherapy, a non-surgical alternative for skin tightening. Ultherapy is sometimes called a “mini-lift” because it can reproduce some of the results of a traditional facelift, without having to go under the knife. Ultherapy uses the technology of ultrasound to lift, tighten and tone the skin on your face resulting in a younger, firmer and fuller appearance.
This technique helps correct loose skin without a need for surgery. High-frequency sound waves are the key — that’s ultrasound. These sound waves allow our medical spa professionals to see deep into the layers of your facial skin. The picture of your skin is recreated on a computer screen so that our technicians can see what is going on, even at the deepest layers. With such depth of vision available to them, the technician can make sure that the ultrasound energy is being delivered exactly where you want to be delivered, straight to the places and layers where it will do the most good.
Ultherapy is FDA-approved for safety, and it is entirely non-invasive. There is no complicated pre- or post-operative care because this is not an operation. It’s a procedure that is easily and safely performed right here at Mariposa Medical Spa, under the watchful eyes and trained hands of our medical spa professionals. In fact, Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved non-invasive procedure that has been proven to lift skin on the brows, under the chin and neck, and now also to help smooth lines and wrinkles on the upper chest and décolletage.
And there is another important part of Ultherapy. This procedure has been shown to stimulate the growth of new collagen, the protein in your body that helps keep skin plump and firm. When new collagen is encouraged to grow, your results will look better and even last longer.
The total results of your Ultherapy treatment may take some time to appear. They are not instantaneous, though some patients have reported seeing initial minor changes right away. Full results will occur more slowly, however. The average time is three to six months for the full results to appear. Your actual time may vary based on your skin and the natural aging process of your body, as well as the new collagen that is being generated.
