Our skin is vulnerable to a large number of changes, diseases, and disorders, and sagging skin is one of many such changes that you may experience during your lifetime. A number of factors can contribute to skin drooping when it was once firm, supple, and taut. Naturally, the most common cause of sagging skin is the process of aging. When you grow older, your body begins to lose its natural collagen and elastin. Since collagen is a main contributor to youthful, plump skin, its age-related degradation leads to the weakening of connective tissue, and your skin begins looking tired as a result. Another large factor in the development of sagging skin is prolonged sun exposure. If you have spent a good deal of time in the sun, whether it is working outdoors, sunbathing, or enjoying recreational activities, exposure to powerful UV rays will eventually break down collagen and elastin fibers, leading to lax skin. Fortunately, Ultherapy® treatment can dramatically improve the appearance of skin affected by sagging.
What is Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is a non-invasive procedure that utilizes safe ultrasound to tighten and lift your skin naturally. What we are doing in this treatment is triggering your body’s own production of collagen through the delivery of focused ultrasound energy into deeper layers of your skin. We can do all this without disrupting or surgically invading the surface layers of your skin. Since much less tissue damage is involved compared to other cosmetic procedures, you can return to your daily activities immediately after your treatment with no limitations or restrictions.
What Parts of the Body Can Be Treated by Ultherapy®?
This treatment utilizes your body’s own innate healing abilities to gradually and gently lift skin found on the chin and neck, eyebrow, décolletage, and other areas. It can help treat sagging cheeks, aging jaw lines, the under-chin area, and loose skin on your face or neck.
What Should I Expect During My Procedure?
Your Ultherapy® procedure begins with a thorough cleansing of your skin and the identification of treatment areas. Your practitioner will apply ultrasound gel and place an applicator onto your skin. Then we use ultrasound imaging to look deep within your skin and decide where to place the treatment energy. Finally, we deliver the focused ultrasound energy under the surface of your skin to trigger a skin rejuvenation process that results in tighter, more youthful skin.
