Thanks to revolutionary anti-aging treatments, you don’t need to undergo a facelift or surgery to improve the appearance of sagging skin. However you may have concerns about these new treatments, in particular, whether you might experience any pain or discomfort. At A Younger You Medical Spa in Burlington, WI, we are happy to say that out treatments such as ultherapy are an excellent way to help address sagging, wrinkled skin, with as little discomfort as possible.
How Painful Is Ultherapy?
One of the most common myths floating around the beauty world is that ultherapy is painful. Honestly, we’re not convinced that any of the rumor-mongers have ever even had the treatment. Not only is ultherapy a procedure with minimal discomfort, but additionally, we will do everything in our power to keep you as comfortable as possible during the entire treatment.
Ultherapy and the Pain Scale
On a scale from one to ten, when asked, “How painful is ultherapy?”, we can easily rate it with confidence as a low-pain treatment. This treatment is not painful, but you may experience a warm sensation beneath the surface of the skin due to collagen stimulation. However, before your treatment, we will apply a topical numbing cream to completely remove any chances of discomfort. You will be able to lay back and relax as the ultrasound technology performs its job.
What Is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved treatment that improves the appearance of sagging skin from the face to chest. Unlike lasers, which address the signs of aging through light energy, ultherapy utilizes sound energy through ultrasound technology to view and target the deepest layers of the skin.
How Does It Work?
When the ultrasound wand is placed onto the area of treatment, your technician will be able to view digital images of the layers of your skin on a screen. This allows for the most exact and precise ability to target the signs of aging in specific locations. When the ultrasound wand makes contact with the surface of the skin, sound energy reaches into the deepest layers of the skin. This creates minute disruptions in your tissues, which in turn stimulates your cells to produce collagen.
What Does It Treat?
This treatment specifically targets sagging skin on the face, specifically in the eyebrow region, beneath the chin, and on the neck, as well as fine lines and wrinkles that form in the chest region, also commonly referred to as the décolletage. The production of collagen in these areas leads to smoother, more elastic, and younger looking skin.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Most patients only require one treatment to reach their goals. However, each person has a different goal and a different problem area that they want to address. During your consultation, we will be able to evaluate your goals and set up the best treatment plan based on your needs.
When Will I See Results?
Some patients notice results immediately following their ultherapy treatment. Others typically begin to see their results within two to three months post-treatment. Collagen production takes time, but once your results begin to appear, you will love what you see.
The Benefits of Ultherapy
Ultherapy targets the deepest layers of the skin in a way that laser treatments cannot. Its use of sound energy allows it to reach deeper than lasers can and therefore has a more powerful effect on the skin.
Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved treatment of its kind to safely lift and improve sagging skin. It has been cleared and established as a safe treatment for all skin types.
Once you achieve your desired results, you will be able to enjoy them for up to two years. When you begin to notice that your results are starting to disappear, you can simply return for a follow-up treatment and your results will return.
It’s Not Painful
Contrary to what you may have heard, the answer to the question, “How painful is ultherapy?” is that it isn’t painful. You’ll be able to enjoy your treatment without having to worry about pain, knowing that we have preplanned and taken every measure imaginable to ensure your maximum comfort.
Who Is a Candidate?
