Dealing with signs of aging can be tough, especially when searching for the right treatment or practice that will be safe and effective. Thanks to medical advancements, there may be a solution that you didn't even know about.
Ultherapy is a non-surgical skin treatment that uses ultrasound waves to lift the skin on the face, neck, and chest, creating a youthful look.
Collagen is the natural protein that makes our skin appear tight and tone. As we age, collagen begins to breakdown as wrinkles and lose skin starts to appear. Collagen injections have become commonplace in recent years, but still come with some amounts of risks and downtime depending on the procedure. Ultherapy uses microfocused ultrasound waves to create thermal energy and produce more natural collagen.
Is it Safe?
Ultherapy is FDA cleared and currently being marketed to 60 different countries, with over 1 million treatments. It also uses the same ultrasound technology that has been trusted for over 50 years.
How Long Does a Session Take?
Sessions vary in time depending on the area being treated. Chest treatments take around 30 minutes and face and neck treatments range from 60-90 minutes. Most only need one treatment, although some may benefit from multiple.
How Long Do Results Last?
Some see results immediately after treatment, but the best results will come after 2-3 months as your body produces its natural collagen.
Are There Side Effects / Recovery Time?
With Ultherapy there is no downtime, you can go about your regular day following treatment. Some people experience redness after treatment that goes away within a few hours. There is a chance of experiencing slight swelling, numbness, or tingling, but these effects are also mild and temporary.
Ultherapy is a great option for those looking to alleviate signs of aging, but are not ready for a full surgical procedure. It is also an option for those who have had surgery and are looking to extend its effects. To learn more, you can visit the Ultherapy website or Purefico Therapy.
