Ultherapy® is a non-surgical procedure that might be just what you need to finally get rid of certain age-related blemishes. During an Ultherapy® appointment, our team can stimulate your body’s natural healing response with powerful ultrasonic waves. Within weeks of your first treatment, cosmetic issues such as fine lines and wrinkles may fade away before your eyes. We invite you to discover how this technology works and what kind of results you can expect following your Ultherapy® treatment.
Collagen and Age-Related Blemishes
One of the reasons why we develop fine lines and wrinkles as we grow older is because our bodies have a limited supply of collagen. This substance is an important protein that helps to give your skin its youthful appearance. Over the years, your body will gradually begin to produce less collagen, and that almost always results in visible changes to the outer layers of the skin. Protecting your skin from environmental toxins and UV rays may delay this process, but most patients can’t avoid these blemishes forever.
Ultrasonic Technology and Your Skin
Medical specialists have been using ultrasonic technology for decades to captures images of various parts of the body. After years of extensive research, doctors realized that the ultrasonic waves could also be used to treat certain cosmetic issues when they were set to specific frequencies. Once the Ultherapy® machine is turned on, those waves penetrate deep into the epidermis and trigger the production of collagen and other proteins. Unlike invasive procedures, this treatment allows the patient’s body to heal itself.
Benefits of Ultherapy®
Ultherapy® has become one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the country, and countless patients are now choosing this technology over traditional lifts and tucks. During your Ultherapy® appointment, our team won’t need to make any incisions or use harsh anesthetics. Within just weeks of the first session, your blemishes should gradually begin to fade away.
You can resume virtually all of your normal activities immediately after your treatment. Some patients also combine Ultherapy® with other procedures to treat multiple cosmetic issues at once. The full results may not be visible for two months or so; however, each case is unique, and we’ll discuss your case with you during a consultation.
