If you are unhappy with your loose skin and the appearance issues it causes, you should consider Ulthera® skin tightening at our office. This is especially true if you prefer to avoid surgical procedures that require a hospital stay and significant downtime for recovery.
Chances are that you have already been exposed to the same type of energy that Ulthera® uses at some point in your life. It uses ultrasound, which is the same kind of energy that is frequently used for imaging purposes. It is frequently used during pregnancy to monitor the development of the baby. It is also used to check the function of the heart as well as other organs.
Ulthera® skin tightening provides some advantages over many other methods. It is comfortable and free from the side effects that are associated with other treatments. In addition, treatments can be delivered more effectively because the image that shows up on the screen enables those giving the treatment to monitor its effectiveness more closely. Adjustments can be made to the energy level so that the maximum benefits are obtained.
The ultrasound energy that is utilized during Ulthera® skin tightening gently warms the lower layers of the skin where the collagen is located. In response to the heat, the skin is stimulated to increase its rate of collagen growth. Doing so restores tightness to the skin.
Collagen is a protein that is contained in the deeper layers of the skin. Its purpose is to provide fullness and help the skin to maintain tightness. With age, the production rate of collagen drops. The natural consequence of lower collagen levels is a loosening of the skin. Consequently, the skin will start to sag and wrinkles will develop.
Wrinkles that form because of loose skin frequently form along the edges of the eyes. They are commonly referred to as crow’s feet because the lines start close together and spread as they go outwardly. Wrinkles often form around the mouth as well. They are frequently accompanied by some sagging of the jowls, another indication of loose skin.
Ulthera® skin tightening is intended to restore the collagen to a level that more closely resembles what it was before the aging process caused it to decline. As a result, the skin will become tighter without the need for any kind of surgical procedure.
