Ultherapy Skin Tightening: Look Your Best for Any Occasion

If you’re looking for a non-surgical way to address mild to moderate skin laxity, Ultherapy skin tightening treatment might be exactly what you need. And since this type of skin tightening treatment is non-invasive and non-surgical, you can expect your Ultherapy results to look natural; that is, you won’t look as if you had anything done.

What Ultherapy skin tightening is all about

People who have never undergone any type of cosmetic procedure may, understandably, not be familiar with Ultherapy. So, for your reference, Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure designed to lift loose or sagging skin around the eyebrows, under the chin, and around the neck. It can also effectively improve wrinkles on the upper chest area.

It is the only FDA-cleared non-invasive treatment for improving facial skin laxity and reducing the visibility of wrinkles and lines on the chest. On that note, first-time patients need not worry about its safety because it has the FDA’s seal of approval.

Briefly, ultrasound energy penetrates the deeper layers of the skin (those which were once only accessible through a surgical facelift) to stimulate the body’s collage production. This results in younger, rejuvenated skin over time. This is why you get natural-looking results; because you are using your own collagen to produce new, practically flawless, skin.

Ultherapy results

As for Ultherapy results, these may start to become noticeable a few weeks after treatment; but optimal results are generally achieved after about 60 to 90 days post-treatment. On that note, if your goal is to look your best for your sister’s wedding or your parents’ anniversary, or even your own anniversary, you should undergo Ultherapy treatment two to three months before the event. This way, you will have achieved optimal results around the time of the event.

The best part about Ultherapy skin tightening is that people will notice how great you look but they won’t be able to tell that you achieved that gorgeous new look with the help of a cosmetic procedure. That’s how natural-looking Ultherapy results are.

Now, depending on your actual skin laxity condition, you may need only one treatment or several. For the most part, patients with mild skin laxity achieve their desired results after one treatment. Also, depending on your body’s natural aging process and its response to treatment, your Ultherapy results may last up to one year (longer for some patients).

Patients are reminded, however, that Ultherapy results aren’t as “dramatic” as those from a surgical facelift. But if you’re looking to improve skin laxity without downtime or surgery, you can’t go wrong with Ultherapy. Some patients who have had a surgical facelift opt to undergo Ultherapy treatment to extend the results of a previous cosmetic surgery.
