As we grow older, our skin begins to show signs of aging. These can manifest in the forms of fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin and even age spots. Thankfully, there are many ways of combating these signs of aging. One of the newest techniques is called Ultherapy®.
Ultherapy® is a skin treatment that uses ultrasound technology to overcome the signs of aging in areas like the neck, brow, chin and chest. The ultrasound energy effectively reduces the appearance of wrinkles and lines.
How Ultherapy® Works
During an Ultherapy® session, a specialized device is used to deliver high-intensity ultrasound waves to areas that need to be improved. The ultrasound energy causes the treated areas of the patient’s skin to regenerate collagen production within the deeper layers. The energy used does not affect or harm any tissue or muscle close to the treatment areas.
Collagen is a unique form of protein that is found in practically every area of the body. It has a way of holding the body together and counteracting the effects of aging.
Collagen is responsible for keeping the skin tight, supple and wrinkle-free. It is found most abundantly in the skin when we are younger. As we begin to age, the body produces less and less collagen over time. This is why skin problems like wrinkles begin to materialize as we age.
Ultherapy® treatment can be done in the comfort of our office in Burlington, Brookfield, or Geneva. The procedure provides you with optimal results without having to go through extensive surgery. After treatment there might be a little swelling and redness but this will dissipate on its own.
The Ultherapy® Treatment Process
During an Ultherapy® treatment, a specialized device is used to deliver high-intensity ultrasound waves deep underneath the surface of the skin.
Immediately after treatment, some patients will notice that the skin appears and feels tighter than before the treatment. However, real results will not begin to show until two or three months later, when the collagen begins to heal the treated areas. The results will appear natural since they occur over time instead of instantly.
