Who doesn’t love the idea of walking into a medical spa or plastic surgeon’s office, undergoing a short, non-invasive procedure, and looking younger and younger as the next few months go by? These are the things that dreams have been made of in the past, so it shouldn’t be a stretch to believe it is now possible to turn back the hands of time without surgery.
We may be a premier cosmetic surgery practice in Reno, but we are also committed to helping patients obtain the non-surgical treatments that can help them postpone aging, support the effects of a facelift, or simply to age at their own pace. Ultherapy is an example of such a treatment.
What is Ultherapy and How does it Work?
Ultherapy is an FDA-approved ultrasound skin-tightening treatment. It works by collagen reformation. The skin relies on this vital protein for thickness and firmness; that’s why our skin looks so great when we’re kids (before we can appreciate it!). Without adequate collagen, skin droops, it thins, and it develops wrinkles. Therefore, to turn back the hands of time, we’ve got to figure out how to make more collagen. The body knows how to do that; we just have to set the stage, so it does.
The way that Ultherapy ultrasound treatment incites collagen production is instigating minor and impermanent damage to subdermal tissue. This is the only way to get more collagen into the skin. The Ultherapy device sends high-intensity focused ultrasound into the right depth (guided by ultrasound) to trigger the response we need. It’s that simple. After the tissue has been appropriately heated, the process of new collagen building, called neocollagenesis, begins. More than begins, it continues for several months.
Why Ultherapy is a Leading Skin-Tightening Treatment
Ultherapy does more than tighten the skin; it evokes a regenerative response from the body, which is essentially like a backward-aging process.
- Over time, the skin thickens and firms, which lends to structure in the treatment area.
- Ultherapy can tighten up the jawline, lift the brows, and add structure to the mid face.
- Results are completely natural.
- No downtime is needed. Get right back to your busy day!
