Surgery was the greatest and sometimes only option for patients seeking to rejuvenate their facial skin. It came with a considerable number of undesirable side effects, which included discomfort, the risk of infection, swelling and prolonged problems that may exist after the healing process has ended. While some of these risks have been minimized with modern facial surgeries, many of these side effects are still present. This can make surgical rejuvenation undesirable for certain patients.
Ultherapy® represents one of the most advanced non-surgical methods of rejuvenating the skin. It utilizes cutting-edge science to deliver rejuvenation without the need for scalpels, stitches or even needles. We encourage you to learn more about how Ultherapy® works for non-surgical facial rejuvenation before examining why it may be perfect for you.
How Does Ultherapy® Work?
Certain types of energies can pass through the skin without damaging it. This requires utilizing a special wavelength that resonates with tissues containing certain attributes, which can range from pigmentation to density. Ultherapy® utilizes ultrasonic waves to transmit energy beneath the skin. These waves are attuned to a special frequency that transforms into vibrations when they reach collagen cells and other potentially undesirable cells that exist beneath the skin.
When this energy transforms into vibrations, it heats and destroys the targeted cells. This allows the body’s lymphatic system to remove them, which in turn starts the process of replacing these cells. The new cells tend to be significantly more desirable. Ultherapy® removes loose and saggy collagen structures, which in turn allows the body to replace them with tighter cells that make the skin look and feel better.
Why Opt for Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® offers numerous advantages over the more common traditional methods of treating facial degeneration. These advantages include:
- No surgery – This means a reduced risk of infection, scarring, tenderness and other undesirable side effects.
- Heightened compatibility – Ultherapy® tends to be compatible with most patients. This is because of the gentler nature that this effective treatment offers, especially when it comes to non-surgical skin tightening.
- Gradual results – Facelifts and dermal fillers offer quick results, but these may look unnatural due to their speed. Ultherapy® offers gradual results that improve over a period of weeks to months, which in turn can allow it to offer more natural results.
- Less discomfort – This treatment damages a select number of cells beneath the skin. This minimizes the need for recovery, which in turn ensures that patients experience as little discomfort during the process as possible.
