One of the telltale signs of aging is loose skin, but there are not many products that can effectively treat skin laxity. You need something stronger, and at Vibrant Rejuvenation MediSpa in Commack, NY, we have just the solution. It’s not a surgical facelift; it’s called Ultherapy. This treatment uses ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production deep within the skin to lift, contour, and redefine the face.
What Is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment designed to lift and tighten loose skin in the lower half of the face. It uses ultrasound energy waves to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
It’s been called a “non-surgical facelift” because it is an effective way to address volume loss and elasticity loss without forcing patients to undergo a surgical procedure to do so. It cannot entirely replicate a facelift, but it does deliver some long-lasting, dramatic results that look completely natural.
How Does It Work?
Ultherapy works so well because it stimulates the body’s natural healing powers. It uses ultrasound energy to promote collagen and elastin production within the deepest layers of the skin. The device we use during treatment directs ultrasound energy waves far beyond the skin’s surface into the deepest layers to promote advanced collagen production to lift and tighten the treatment area.
The device is attached to an imaging screen, allowing the technician to use precision and accuracy while treating your target areas. During your treatment, your technician will place the device on your skin after applying the ultrasound gel. Once the device passes across your skin, it will deliver a thermal image to the imaging screen. Your technician will be able to target specific areas that need increased collagen so that you can get the best results possible.
The Ultherapy Difference
There are many cosmetic treatments designed to stimulate collagen production, but very few of them can reach beyond the dermis, which is the top layer of your skin. While these treatments are effective and will give you results, Ultherapy takes collagen production to the next level. Ultrasound energy reaches beyond the epidermis into the deepest layer of the dermis to help lift, tighten, and tone the skin for some dramatic and noticeable results.
What Areas Does It Treat?
Ultherapy specializes in treating loose or sagging skin in the lower half of the face and the neck. It can redefine the cheeks, lift the brows, address and correct jowls, and tighten loose skin on the neck and chest. If you’re looking to take years off your face, neck, and chest by lifting the entire area, this treatment can do just that.
What Can I Expect From a Treatment?
The first step in this process is an initial consultation at our office. This consultation is important because it gives us the chance to discuss the treatment with you, review your problem areas in person, learn more about your health history, and confirm that you are a good treatment candidate. Then, we can schedule your initial appointment.
On the day of your appointment, you should try to arrive with clean skin, free of any product. If you cannot, your technician will clean your face before beginning the session. Then, she will apply an ultrasound gel to your skin and start addressing your concerns, as discussed during your initial consultation.
The digital image on the screen will help her zone in on the specific areas that require collagen and elastin in production to get that youthful, lifted look. The entire process takes approximately 60 minutes to complete.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Most collagen induction treatments require that you undergo multiple sessions to get the best results. The benefit of Ultherapy is that you only need a 60-minute treatment to get dramatic and visible results. Once you notice a change in your results or experience additional areas with loose skin, you can schedule a follow-up treatment to benefit from all that Ultherapy offers.
How Long Does It Take to See the Results?
Most patients notice a visible improvement in their skin immediately following their treatment. Results will continue to improve in the weeks following your session as your body begins to increase collagen and elastin and in the treatment areas. Results are gradual but also dramatic. You’ll never look as though you went and had something done, but at the same time, friends and family (and even strangers) may comment on how much more youthful and well-rested you look.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Results can last up to 18 months. All you need is one 60-minute session to experience long-lasting results, and as soon as you notice a change in those results, you can schedule a touchup treatment.
Who Is It Right For?
Ultherapy is designed to help tighten loose skin and provide patients with an alternative to a facelift. Those who aren’t ready to commit financially, physically, or emotionally to everything involved in a facelift can still improve their appearance and lift loose skin thanks to this revolutionary treatment. While the results won’t replicate a facelift, they will give you some dramatic results that will improve your appearance.
Most patients who schedule treatments are in their 40s and 50s and want to address the signs of aging and turn back the clock. Other patients are in their 30s and want to get one step ahead of aging or slow the aging process as much as possible.
Lift Your Skin the Non-Invasive Way
Aging is inevitable, but now you have a say in the matter. Thanks to this revolutionary treatment, you can address aging in a non-invasive way and get the most natural-looking results in just one treatment without any downtime, incisions, or stitches. As soon as your appointment is over, you can resume your daily activities knowing that youthful skin is right around the corner.
