There are a lot of non-surgical cosmetic procedures available now. So, how do you choose the one that is right for you? If you are reading this, then you’re making a good start by getting to know the treatment you are considering thoroughly before you start.
Your practitioner should be willing to answer all of your questions and advise you on the benefits and challenges of treatment. You can check their website for evidence of training and certification in the Ultherapy treatment process.
Tried and Tested
You may not have heard of Ultherapy treatment before but you are likely to have heard of the processes that are used, such as ultrasound. This is used to target deep layers under the skin and apply heat. When the body starts to heal from this process, it produces new collagen and elastin, which is what gives the lifting effect. The whole process takes around 1–1½ hours depending on how many areas you have treated. It has been used on well over half a million patients in Europe and is FDA approved in the USA.
While everyone is different, the effects of Ultherapy treatment have been consistently seen to last around a year. This makes it one of the longer lasting non-surgical cosmetic procedures in the industry. The effect takes place over the course of a few months. The process takes a little while because it is the result of the natural healing processes of the body.
A Natural Response
Collagen and elastin are naturally present in the skin. Collagen makes up about 80% of the dermis and provides strength. Elastin provides the stretchiness. As we age, collagen and elastin become more disconnected. The growth of new cells slows down and so the skin begins to wrinkle and sag. Ultherapy treatment wakes the process up again through strategic stimulation of your body’s natural healing processes.
It’s Easy To Get Started
You only need to book a consultation to get started with your Ultherapy treatment. Your practitioner will check your suitability and let you know what is possible based on your current skin conditions. Ultherapy treatment works best if you have mild to moderate skin looseness.
