Ultherapy may be a better non-surgical alternative to loose skin surgery if you’ve been considering it. Ultherapy skin tightening treatment is the only FDA-cleared non-invasive process for the skin on the neck, chin, brow, and decolletage, and it is available at MetaGlow. Micro-focused ultrasound is utilized in several sessions to lift and release the skin for a short period of time. Ultherapy is a tried-and-true procedure with a long history of positive outcomes and minimal side effects. Ultherapy has been used by over 1.5 million people in over 75 countries.
Ultrasound radiation has been employed for more than half a century for a variety of purposes, including skin tightening. It’s based on the same technology as ultrasounds used during prenatal care, but it isn’t aimed to tighten loose skin. If you employ ultrasound in the right way, you can encourage the growth of collagen.
We’ve written this blog post to explain the most critical aspects of Ultherapy so that you can make an informed decision about whether or not to undergo it.
- The FDA Has Approved This New Treatment
Many medical and cosmetic practitioners across the world use the FDA-approved Ultherapy technology. Hundreds of thousands of people have undergone this treatment since it was approved by the FDA less than a decade ago. When it comes to FDA-approved procedures for skin lifting and skin tightening on the upper body, it is among the most popular.
- Ultherapy Is Not A Laser Treatment
As the name suggests, Ultherapy employs ultrasonic technology. Lasers work on the skin from the “outside-in,” but Ultherapy technology works from the “inside-out,” which is different. Deep under the skin, it leaves no scars or marks, and it is entirely undetectable to the naked eye. Non-invasively, the method lifts and tightens the skin without causing any damage to the surface of the skin.
- Skin Tightening Naturally Occur As Your Body Heals Itself
Ultherapy, as the name suggests, makes use of your body’s healing mechanisms to tighten and lift loose skin. Neocollagenesis is the body’s natural response to Ultherapy’s stimulation of the deep structural support layers beneath the skin’s surface. Lifted and tightened skin results from new collagen being produced by your body.
- Unlike A Facelift, This Is Not A Cosmetic Procedure
A common side effect of aging is that the skin begins to “hang” or sag. Until recently, the sole option for skin rejuvenation treatment was invasive surgery. Ultherapy is a non-surgical procedure that uses the most advanced technology available. In order to elevate your skin, this procedure uses ultrasound, a tried-and-true technology that has been around for decades.
- Recovery Time Is Minimal If Any At All
After a sixty to ninety-minute in-office procedure with Ultherapy, your recuperation time is almost immediate because it’s non-invasive and not a surgical procedure. After the Ultherapy skin tightening treatment, you’ll need someone to drive you home, but you’ll be able to get back to your routine the following day. For each patient, the level of discomfort they feel is unique. People report feeling a deep buzz that is more annoying than hurtful, according to those who’ve experienced it. In contrast, others have described the sensation as a warm pulse that increases in intensity.
While the ultrasound energy is being applied, the patient will feel a sharp tingling sensation. Patients may feel short-term redness and long-term soreness after this skin rejuvenation treatment. The skin specialists will help you deal with any pain or discomfort you may be experiencing.
- Results Take 2 To 3 Months To Appear Naturally
For the full benefits of Ultherapy to be seen, it takes some time. This is due to the fact that it relies on the body’s healing mechanisms. The best outcomes can be seen roughly two to three months after the Ultherapy skin tightening treatment. Up to 5-7 months following treatment, some patients see improvements in their condition.
- You Don’t Have To Do Anything To Get Ready For The Treatment
Before your Ultherapy appointment, we urge that you refrain from doing any additional preparation. Depending on the severity of your pain, we may recommend taking a prescription or over-the-counter medicine before your appointment. It is not uncommon for the surgery to cause some discomfort for people. An increase in collagen production means the surgery has been successful.
- This Treatment Is A One-Time Procedure
Because this skin rejuvenation treatment is usually a one-time thing, the results can last for many years after a single appointment. After a long time, some patients may decide on a secondary procedure. Yet this is not necessary, as the outcomes are frequently excellent and effective on the first attempt.
The Ultherapy skin tightening treatment is suitable for all skin types, and there is no prior preparation needed. Only a decision and a walk into the clinic are required. However, we recommend that you seek the advice of a professional to minimize any needless issues that may arise from your lack of expertise. It is possible to have a positive experience in treatment and recovery if you mentally prepare and commit to the entire process.
