Aging performs numerous processes that can detract from your overall beauty, but the most prominent of these effects is loose or sagging skin. This can allow everything from fine lines and wrinkles to turkey necks to develop.
The reason these effects are so difficult to deal with revolves around the way they have traditionally been treated. Neck and facelifts require surgical incisions, the removal of skin and a decent amount of time for recovery. Infections and scarring are just two side effects patients prepare for.
Advancements in dermatological care have opened new avenues for treating age-related skin deterioration. Ultherapy® represents one of the best ways to non-surgically rejuvenate your skin. It can provide skin tightening for light to moderate loose skin.
Understanding the Age-Old Problem of Sagging Skin
Before diving into how Ultherapy® works, it’s important to understand why skin becomes loose and sags. Skin has several layers to it.
In the deepest layers, there is a layer of collagen that provides form for your skin. These structures are tight and dense in healthy, young skin.
As skin ages, these structures become less uniform and less compact than they once were. This leads to sags, lines, creases and wrinkles. They may form as the result of damage from the sun, repeated muscle movements or just age-related deterioration.
How Does Ultherapy® Work?
Ultherapy® targets the collagen structures deep within the skin. This allows the skin to tighten.
Is it Safer than Surgical Procedures?
Ultherapy® is markedly safer than surgical procedures due to the lack of any type of incision. This lowers the risk of infection, brings the risk of scarring to almost none and avoids the painful recovery that most invasive skin tightening procedures require.
Is Ultherapy® Right for You?
Ultherapy® provides a way to non-surgically tighten your skin. While it will generally produce the best results in cases where “touch-ups” are needed for loose or sagging skin, it can be used to treat moderate skin deterioration.
