If you’re looking for an effective way to tighten and tone your skin, consider Ulthera® skin tightening. As a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure, Ulthera® doesn’t cause discomfort and has the potential to make your skin look smoother, younger and firmer.
By manipulating your body’s own healing process, Ulthera® forces the production of new collagen and corrects loose, sagging skin. This skin tightening procedure is commonly used for the neck and brow, but it can even treat your upper chest. Ulthera® doesn’t require downtime, so after the treatment session, you can get back to your daily lifestyle.
If you want to tighten and tone loose skin, it’s one of the best treatment options available. The procedure works by restoring your underlying tissues. It doesn’t require invasive surgery, and it has been cleared by the FDA.
What Makes Ulthera® Different?
There are several different treatments out there that aim to tighten and tone skin. However, many alternative treatment options don’t reach the deepest layers of your skin, or they require invasive surgery.
Ulthera® is different because it uses ultrasound energy. By using ultrasound technology, we’re able to look into the deepest layers of your skin while we perform the treatment. Ultrasound imaging makes it possible to precisely target the layers of skin that require treatment.
How Ulthera® Skin Tightening Works
The name of the treatment is short for ultrasound therapy, and the procedure uses a special transducer to pass powerful sound waves into your skin. The ultrasound energy passes deep into your skin and affects the fibro-muscular tissues.
One of the goals of the treatment is to tighten these tissues. By sending high-frequency sound waves into your skin’s foundational layer, Ulthera® stimulates collagen production, which results in firmer, smoother skin.
The foundational layer of skin is targeted by most surgical procedures, so it’s the same layer that is treated by Ulthera®. One of the major benefits of using Ulthera® is the ability to see into your skin. When we use this treatment, we’re able to see into your layers of skin, so we can select the best energy frequency for each specific layer of skin. The technology allows us to see the thickness of your skin, so the guesswork is taken out of the procedure.
What About the Results?
If you’re wondering about the results, you’re not alone. Although Ulthera® is a non-surgical skin tightening procedure, it can provide great results. The treatment is very effective for toning, lifting and tightening skin.
After the procedure, you might be able to see some initial results, but the greatest benefits begin to surface after two to three months. You can expect to see the full benefits of the treatment after six months. The results can last anywhere from one to 1.5 years, and if you want to maintain the results, you can get simple maintenance treatments.
