Aging is a fact of life. You can’t escape the aging process, but you can reverse some of its effects. At Tarola Plastic Surgery, with offices conveniently located in Murfreesboro and Hendersonville, TN, we want to introduce you to Ultherapy, a skin lifting and tightening treatment that initiates a natural anti-aging response in your body to deliver results.
Are Ultherapy Results Permanent?
Ultherapy results are intended to be permanent, but the aging process will eventually affect your results. As you age, even after experiencing this treatment, you will continue to notice skin laxity as your body produces less collagen and elastin.
However, the results from this treatment are long-lasting; you will be able to enjoy them for several years. When you start to notice that aging is catching up with you and affecting your results, you can schedule a follow-up treatment to once again stimulate your body’s collagen and elastin production.
What Is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a non-invasive anti-aging treatment. It’s known as the non-surgical facelift, and while the results will not replicate those of a facelift, this treatment will give you the next best thing, and you won’t have to undergo the knife. This treatment uses ultrasound energy to target the deep layers of the skin to increase the body’s collagen and elastin production. Results appear gradually over time, and you’ll end up with tighter skin and a lifted appearance.
What Areas Can It Treat?
This treatment is designed to target sagging skin in the middle and lower half of the face. It can also improve skin laxity on the body to restore youth to areas that have begun to develop crepey or loose skin. It can be used on the brows, the jawline, the neck, and the decolletage. It can also be used on the forehead to lift the brows and tighten the skin in the surrounding area.
How Does It Work?
If you’ve experienced an ultrasound, this treatment will feel very similar. When you come in for treatment, your technician will apply ultrasound gel to your skin. Once the Ultherapy device makes contact with your skin, a digital thermal image of the layers of your skin will appear on a screen. Your technician will use this image to effectively treat your problem areas so that you get that tighter, lifted appearance after just one treatment.
The digital image of your skin provides the technician with the ability to use accuracy and precision when delivering the ultrasound energy to your target areas. The ultrasound energy can reach some of the deepest layers of the skin to both rebuild collagen and stimulate collagen production so that you get some amazing results.
Who Is a Candidate?
The best candidates for Ultherapy are those who want to tighten and lift their skin, treat the signs of aging, and restore their youth without undergoing any invasive treatment to do so. Additionally, those who have had a facelift make good candidates for this treatment. They can use it to help prolong the results of their facelift and maintain a youthful and lifted appearance.
Most patients schedule this treatment in their 30s when they have begun to notice the first signs of aging on their skin. Patients in their 40s, 50s, and beyond also schedule treatments to restore their youth, turn back the clock, and improve their appearance without undergoing a surgical procedure.
Are Results Immediate?
Most patients notice an immediate improvement in the appearance of their skin after their first treatment, but the best and final results will take time to appear. Collagen production can take up to 12 weeks once stimulated. You will typically see your best and final results within a few weeks of your initial treatment. Even though waiting for those results can be hard, the fact that this treatment delivers gradual results is one of the reasons that patients love it so much.
Some people feel self-conscious about the fact that others may notice immediate changes in their appearance after an anti-aging treatment. With this treatment, changes occur gradually, so your face, neck, or chest skin will continue to improve over time. You won’t look like you had anything done; you’ll just slowly look like an improved you.
What Are the Benefits?
This anti-aging treatment offers many benefits, which is why it has become such a popular treatment among both men and women who want to change their appearance for the better. It’s a quick treatment, and there’s no downtime.
You can arrive at your appointment, undergo the treatment, and then resume your normal daily activities, knowing that you’re one step closer to more youthful skin. Additionally, most patients only need one treatment to achieve results, not several sessions like most anti-aging treatments often require.
Is It Painful?
Ultherapy is a painless treatment. You may feel a warm sensation during the treatment process, but you won’t feel any pain. Our technicians will take every measure to keep you completely comfortable throughout the entirety of the treatment.
Can I Combine It With Other Treatments?
This anti-aging treatment can be combined with other similar treatments to rejuvenate the face. Laser treatments pair well with Ultherapy because together, they can provide total skin rejuvenation.
