Ultherapy® in OKC is a non-surgical method of lifting and tightening the skin. It is popular among those who want to have younger-looking skin without having to go under the knife. The ulthera system works by bypassing the skin and targeting the cells underneath the skin. The energy triggers a regenerative process that makes new collagen. This means your skin will continue to age but it has been reset back to a few years because of the new set of collagen the skin has. If you are interested in Ultherapy® in OKC, here is a glimpse of what happens before, during, and after the treatment.
Before the Treatment
The first step you need to do is to schedule an appointment with a reliable Ultherapy® specialist. The consultation will involve a discussion and an evaluation to see if you are qualified for the treatment and which parts of the face need lifting. Unlike other treatments, there are no specific preparations required prior to the therapy. Although the doctor may prescribe some over-the-counter medicines to relax the patient or make them feel more comfortable.
During Ultherapy® in OKC
First, the areas that need lifting are cleansed before a numbing cream is applied to them. One hour after, making sure that the anesthetic has worked, a clear ultrasound gel is applied on the skin and a treatment applicator is positioned against the skin. This will help the doctor establish an accurate placement of the ultrasound energy.
As the energy is being delivered to the target areas, you may feel a slight sensation as the collagen production is starting. The level of sensations will vary in each patient but rest assure that it will be mild and gone after the treatment. The process often lasts somewhere between an hour to an hour and 30 minutes, depending on the target area and how much tightening or lifting it needs.
After the Treatment
One notable feature of Ultherapy® in OKC is that it does not involve any downtime. There are no scars, bruising, or any special care needed after the treatment. There may be some redness but it will fade within a few hours. You can basically go out for lunch, have the treatment, and go back to work like nothing happened.
While some report noticing significant changes right after the treatment, the ultimate effect will show after two months or so. This is when the new collagen begins to tighten and lift the skin for a more youthful appearance.
