Who is a Good Candidate for Ultherapy?
Posted on November 30, 2022 by Dr. Blume in Uncategorized
As your skin ages, wrinkles and sagginess are all too common and this causes many people to feel self-conscious about their appearance. Ultherapy is a non-invasive facelift alternative that can help many people restore their youthful appearance with natural rejuvenation. Rather than using incisions and invasive techniques, Ultherapy stimulates the skin to heal and rejuvenate itself with long-lasting results. Whether seeking the treatment on its own or combining its benefits with other non-invasive procedures, Ultherapy is a staple in many people’s skincare rejuvenation routines.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is an FDA-approved treatment that stimulates the production of new collagen and remodels preexisting collagen. It does this by penetrating all three layers of skin with focused ultrasonic energy that heats the deep tissues and triggers your body’s healing response. The regeneration of collagen creates a lifting and tightening effect to improve sagging skin and wrinkles. This offers long-lasting effects lasting anywhere from a year to three years.
Within six months of your treatment, your skin will have increased collagen production. Most people will not need to return for another treatment for at least a year or even three years! You can maintain your youthful, rejuvenated appearance by wearing sunscreen and moisturizing your skin with quality skincare products.
The Ideal Candidate for Ultherapy
Anyone looking for a non-invasive treatment for sagging skin, wrinkles, and volume loss can enjoy Ultherapy! Ultherapy is best for patients in their 40s – 60’s who have decent skin quality with skin laxity or sagging but there is no upper age limit for receiving the treatment. Older patients may have more damage to correct but they can still benefit from Ultherapy, although results will vary. It’s ideal to begin early since you will not be able to make as much collagen and elastin on your own as you age. If you need a dramatic quick result, try the 3D Collagen Boost which utilizes three collagen building treatments. Radiesse is the only structural filler and biostimulator that gives a structural lift immediately, while stimulating the body’s natural collagen production.
Some of the patients we encounter are curious about their non-surgical options. Others have already undergone procedures like a facelift and want to touch up their results. Ultherapy is great for both types of treatment but it is important to remember that the effects of this treatment won’t be as immediate as those of surgery. Ultherapy stimulates natural collagen production which takes time but this gradual improvement is sometimes preferred since it creates natural-looking results. The natural stimulation of collagen production also means that there is no risk of an allergic or adverse reaction.
