Get to Know Why Ultherapy is so Popular
- Posted on: Aug 30 2016
One of the most significant changes that has occurred in aesthetic medicine in recent years has been the development of innovative technologies. Ultherapy is a prime example. This non-surgical treatment has been designed to induce collagen in the deep layers of the dermis using ultrasound energy. It was the first procedure of its kind to gain FDA approval, and it continues to impress us and our patients.
Here are some of the reasons why men and women are turning to Ultherapy for restored youth.
Just because a treatment is described as non-surgical does not mean it’s not invasive to some degree. Injectables, for instance, still penetrate the skin with a small needle. Ultherapy is different. This procedure sends waves of ultrasound energy through the uppermost layers of the skin, directing them toward the deeper tissues where collagen is produced.
We have seen first-hand the improvement that occurs as new strands of collagen rebuild the supportive matrix of fibers beneath the skin. Sure, the changes that stem from non-invasive skin-tightening treatment take longer to appear than a surgical lift; but this does not indicate a lack of efficiency. The whole idea behind ultrasound skin-tightening is to let the body do what it naturally does when it is young.
Minimal Side Effects
When a surgical eye, brow, or face lift is performed, there is a need for a short recovery period. With Ultherapy, there is none. Zero. After treatment, you can get right back to your normal routine. This is because there is no discomfort associated with treatment. Also, the extent of after-effects from Ultherapy is typically limited to mild, temporary flushing. Although it does not occur very often, there is a chance for slight swelling due to the response to ultrasound waves.
There are several non-invasive skin-tightening treatments that have been developed in recent years. Ultherapy stands out because it is one of only a few procedures through which a patient can obtain the desired result after only one treatment session. That being said, subsequent treatment sessions may be scheduled to continue the improvement started by the influx of new collagen.
