Ultrasound is a non-invasive treatment technique that has been used for many years as an imaging technique. Materials with a certain density bounce off concentrated sound waves, but others absorb them. This is also how Ultherapy works. Ultherapy is a non-surgical alternative for lifting and tightening the skin on the upper neck, chin, and face. It is a painless procedure and there is no downtime associated with it.
The Science of Ultherapy
Sound waves, which are created by many different factors in nature, can be a very powerful natural therapy. When sound waves become audible, they travel through the air and stimulate the tissues around them. This causes them to vibrate, resulting in an outcome that is similar to what occurs when you touch a drum or use an electrical outlet. The sound energy is absorbed by tissues and the body responds accordingly with nutrient distribution and repair.
Ultherapy is a revolutionary treatment designed to help you look and feel your best. During the Ultherapy skin tightening treatment, a focused ultrasound device delivers concentrated sound energy that penetrates right through the epidermis to be absorbed by the foundational layer, which then activates fibroblasts and collagen production. This process kickstarts a skin-tightening rejuvenation process that continues long after the treatment is complete.
During the Treatment
Before we suggest Ultherapy as a skin treatment, we consult with our clients and look closely at the areas of concern. We will measure the thickness of their skin, look for loose connections beneath it and determine whether wrinkles are being formed because of skin damage or poor structural support. If we decide that Ultherapy can help, we schedule an appointment and outline the procedure that needs to be followed during your treatment.
Using Ultherapy, you’ll feel nothing more than a buzzing sensation during treatment. To hear the bursts of sound energy, hold the instrument in one hand and press it against your skin with the other.
Treatments that target the upper neck, including the chin and jawline, take between 60 and 90 minutes. When treating the upper neck, our goal is to stimulate the tissues of the skin’s foundational layer without affecting those surrounding areas. In this way, the treatment can be delivered quickly over a relatively short period to enable you to treat yourself at home.
Our skin rejuvenation treatments prevent fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, sun damage, and other signs of aging. The results don’t just happen overnight—our clients see a gradual improvement in the appearance of their skin over time. Envision a more youthful you; it’s not as hard to achieve as you might think.
You will be in our office to complete the procedure. After, you may resume a normal schedule, and there is no special care regimen required. Simple at-home cleaning of the skin is all that’s needed to complete the procedure and return to normal activities.
