Ultherapy Skin Tightening: 5 Aftercare Tips

Posted by June 25th, 2020 in News

The Ultherapy skin tightening treatment is a safe and effective noninvasive, nonsurgical treatment for aging skin in the eyebrow, chin, neck, and décolletage areas. By toning loose and sagging skin, and reducing or eliminating wrinkles and fine lines, the procedure is capable of generating astounding results that have given youth and confidence back to countless patients worldwide.

With that said, the Ultherapy skin tightening treatment is no magic cure for aging. And while Ultherapy results generally last around 2 years, your lifestyle can either negatively or positively impact this duration. So if you want to keep enjoying your Ultherapy skin tightening results long after the treatment, you’ll need aftercare in the form of positive lifestyle changes, which we discuss below:

1. Quit smoking

Smoking cigarettes ages you prematurely to make your face extra-wrinkly. This is because smoking depletes the nutrients in your tissue that are responsible for repairing skin damage, among many other things. Maximize your Ultherapy skin tightening results: quit smoking as soon as possible!

2. Avoid excess sun exposure

The ultraviolet (UV) light in sunlight damages skin and can accelerate the aging process to create excessive wrinkling. Therefore, to maintain your Ultherapy skin tightening results, avoid prolonged periods of exposure to sunlight. You should also wear lots of sunscreen and protective clothing if you’re expecting extended sun exposure, such as when you’re at the beach.

3. Eat healthy

A healthy and nutritious diet allows your body to efficiently replace old cells with new ones, resulting in the maintenance of soft, supple skin. Eat a balanced and varied diet consisting of lots of fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants; nuts, avocados, and oily fish high in healthy fats; and foods abundant in vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium, zinc, and beta carotene.

4. Drink plenty of water

Sufficient hydration keeps your skin elastic, which prevents wrinkles. Among a host of other benefits, it also helps your skin heal faster, and hides signs of aging by keeping your skin plump. Drink 9 to 13 8-ounce glasses of water daily to fully enjoy your Ultherapy skin tightening results!

5. Get lots of sleep

Getting 7 to 9 hours of sleep every night is crucial, as your body uses this occasion to repair your skin. Poor sleep can also lead to dehydration, reduce the blood flow to your face which impairs your skin’s ability to flush out pollutants, not allow for the production of hormones that help with the production of collagen, not allow for the body to relieve stress which is damaging to the skin, and more.
