5 Quick Facts About Ultherapy Skin Tightening Treatment

Posted by July 8th, 2020 in News

With the emergence of non-invasive treatments that effectively corrects common signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines, age spots, and skin laxity, people looking to undergo any one of these could be confused as to what exactly is the right treatment for them. Should you get Ultherapy skin tightening treatment? How about Botox and dermal fillers? And there are the laser-assisted treatments, too. For first-time patients, being presented with a wide range of option can be stressful and overwhelming.

To help you decide which treatment best fits your goals, research is the key. Now, if you’re thinking about undergoing Ultherapy skin tightening treatment to address facial skin laxity, here are a few quick facts that you should know:

1. It’s not the same as a surgical facelift

While Ultherapy skin tightening treatment does give you a “natural-looking lift,” it’s not the same as a surgical facelift for several reasons. First off, the results are different as Ultherapy targets very specific areas only, which means the results aren’t as pronounced or noticeable as a surgical facelift. Also, results from Ultherapy last up to two years while facelift results can last up to ten years.

2. It’s FDA-cleared

For anyone undergoing any type of cosmetic procedure, safety is always the top priority. And the safety seal that consumers always look for and trust is the FDA clearance or FDA approval. First-time Ultherapy patients will be glad to know that this non-invasive treatment has been cleared by the FDA to lift loose or sagging skin around the eyebrows and neck, as well as under the chin. It’s also the only non-invasive procedure cleared by the FDA to improve wrinkles and lines on the décolletage (chest area).

3. One session is all it takes

Depending on your treatment goals, one session is usually all it takes to see noticeable results. You will have to wait about three to six months after treatment to experience optimal results. This is because Ultherapy stimulates collagen production and works with your body’s natural healing process.

4. It’s not a laser-assisted treatment

One of the most common misconceptions about Ultherapy is that it’s a laser-based treatment. Ultherapy uses sound wave energy (ultrasound) to target the deeper layers underneath the skin, which means it works from the inside-out. Laser-assisted treatments work from the outside-in.

5. It can help maintain facelift results

Whether it’s a non-invasive natural lift or a surgical facelift, results don’t last forever. The aging process will eventually catch-up and what that happens, you will begin to see the same problems emerging. Ultherapy is an effective way to maintain or extend results from your surgical facelift.
