With a number of non-invasive and non-surgical treatments to keep the signs of aging at bay readily available these days, a first-time patient may be confused as to which one is the best for them. The answer, of course, is subjective as it depends on the patient’s needs. Ultherapy in San Jose at Rejuvé, for instance, is recommended for patients with mild skin laxity on the mid and lower portions of the face. Injectables like Botox and dermal fillers, on the other hand, are ideal for those who wish to enhance dynamic wrinkles (Botox) or add volume to the cheeks and/or lips (dermal fillers).
Ultherapy or Ulthera in San Jose
Ultherapy (Ulthera) is an FDA-cleared non-surgical treatment designed to lift and tighten loose or sagging skin around the eyebrows and neck, and under the chin. It is also the only FDA-cleared non-invasive procedure for addressing lines and wrinkles on the chest area, effectively reducing their visibility to reveal a smoother and younger-looking décolletage.
Why it works
Ultherapy in San Jose or elsewhere in the country has revolutionized non-invasive treatments for skin laxity as it is the only device, so far, that can reach the deeper layers of the skin. Where other non-invasive treatments are only able to reach the outer layers (or surface) of the skin, Ulthera in San Jose and elsewhere is able to access the deeper layers of the skin, those layers that were once only accessible through a surgical facelift.
Specifically, the Ultherapy device that uses ultrasound energy to penetrate the skin is able to reach the connective tissues that support the muscles collectively known as the superficial musculoaponeurotic system or SMAS. It is this same SMAS that surgeons manipulate to lift the skin during a surgical facelift procedure. With Ultherapy, the “lift” is achieved naturally as the treatment stimulates collagen production to allow the body to regenerate new skin and tissue.
What this essentially means for the Ultherapy patient is that the device is able to reach three target areas or layers: muscles, skin, and superficial or surface wrinkles. This is why Ultherapy works; lifting and tightening skin like no other non-invasive device can.
How many sessions are needed
In general, Ulthera in San Jose at Rejuvé only requires one session for most patients; however, it still depends on the extent of skin laxity and the patient’s response to the treatment. When you come in for consultation with Dr. John Tang for Ultherapy in San Jose, your skin condition will be thoroughly examined, and your medical history will likewise be discussed. These, and other factors, will be taken into consideration to determine the number of sessions needed to achieve your desired results.
Will you need more treatments after the initial treatment?
To maintain results, you may be asked to return to the clinic for a follow-up treatment. Optimal results are achieved about threewo to sixthree months after the procedure, and these can last up to two years or more, depending on your skincare routine, lifestyle, and your body’s aging process.
