As you age, your skin starts to lose elasticity and sag. Other factors such as genetics, gravity, and environment can also contribute to sagging skin. Although we may not be able to avoid the signs of aging, we can effectively treat them. Traditional skin-tightening methods may not offer long-lasting results, and surgery may require too much commitment. If you are looking for a non-surgical cosmetic treatment to address loose skin on your face, you are in the right place.
Ultherapy is an advanced skin-tightening treatment that offers natural-looking results. At Mariposa Aesthetics and Laser Center, we care about your skin concerns. Contact us if you want to know more about Ultherapy and how it can provide a more youthful look.
What Is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is an FDA-approved skin-tightening cosmetic treatment. This non-surgical facelift uses ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production in your skin. It is specifically designed to cause your face to contract and increase the elasticity of your skin.
The device we use differs from that of a medical ultrasound used during pregnancy. The main difference is that Ultherapy is micro-focused to treat specific areas of your skin. The device consists of a handpiece connected to a display screen. The purpose of the screen is to allow us to see the deeper layers of your skin and treat the target area with accuracy.
The ultrasound energy goes through your outermost layer of skin to your deeper layers to tighten and lift your tissue. Ultherapy can address loose skin on your face, neck, and chest by increasing collagen production.
The Benefits of Ultherapy
There are many reasons to choose Ultherapy as your skin-tightening solution. Here are a few benefits of this advanced treatment:
Ultherapy Is Low-Risk
Ultherapy is an FDA-approved treatment for sagging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines. You can have peace of mind when undergoing treatment.
A Non-Invasive Alternative
Ultherapy does not rely on surgical incisions to achieve results. Instead, it uses ultrasound technology to tighten loose skin. This non-invasive treatment improves the elasticity and overall health of your skin.
A Customizable Treatment
Ultherapy can target specific areas of concern due to advanced ultrasound imaging. This means we can direct the energy to an exact target area for optimal results.
If you lead a busy lifestyle and find it difficult to carve out time for yourself, Ultherapy is perfect for you. Treatments don’t cause any pain or discomfort, and they require no downtime for recovery. This means you can continue with your daily activities after treatment as normal.
The results you achieve with ultrasound therapy appear gradually and discreetly. This offers natural-looking results with no sudden changes.
Because this ultrasonic skin tightening treatment stimulates natural collagen production to tighten your skin, and the results you achieve are long-lasting. This means that Ultherapy not only treats the surface of your skin but goes into the deeper layers and improves the overall health of your skin. You can continue to enjoy your facial rejuvenation for up to one year.
Am I a Suitable Candidate For Ultherapy?
Ultherapy can be used by many different people. It is a suitable facial rejuvenation treatment for most skin types and tones. However, if you match the following criteria, you are a suitable candidate for Ultherapy:
- Between the ages of 30-60 years old
- Looking for a non-surgical skin-tightening treatment that will restore collagen and elasticity in your skin
- Don’t have any pre-existing skin conditions and are not pregnant
Before making a final decision about Ultherapy, schedule a consultation with us to discuss your concerns and desired goals. We can tell you if Ultherapy is suitable for you.
The Process of Achieving a More Youthful Appearance
The duration of your Ultherapy will depend on the size of your target area and the condition of your skin. We will move a handheld device that emits ultrasound energy waves over your target area. This will reach the deeper layers of your skin and stimulates collagen production. The treatment is not painful. Rather, the feeling is described as a warming sensation. In rare cases, a topical cream may be applied to ensure minimal discomfort.
Ultherapy – Results
The results you achieve with Ultherapy will vary from one person to the next. Some people experience improvements immediately, while others see results over time. As the ultrasound energy reaches deeper layers of your skin, your skin contracts and becomes firmer. Over time, collagen levels will increase, and your skin will show further improvement. Results will become more noticeable within two to three months after treatment and continue to improve for the next six months.
How Many Ultherapy Treatments Do I Need?
The results you achieve from a single treatment session can last up to one year. You may need to schedule follow-up treatments to enhance your initial results. However, one treatment is enough to tighten your skin, stimulate collagen production, and give you a youthful appearance.
