Benefits of Non Invasive Skin Tightening

Benefits of Non Invasive Skin Tightening

Many Americans have excessive or sagging skin somewhere on their body. This can come from weight loss, aging, or other dramatic changes that the body has endured. Over time our skin loses its elasticity, causing excess skin that can make you lose confidence, or just not feel like yourself. However, for those wanting to tighten their skin without having a surgical procedure such as a tummy tuck, there is another option. Ulthera® is a non-invasive skin tightening procedure that lifts, smooths and tightens your skin. Learn more about the benefits and what you should expect below.

What Is Ultherapy?

This non-invasive treatment can target loose skin on the neck, chin, brow area and more. It also improves lines and wrinkles along with tightening the skin. Ultrasound imaging is used to target the specific areas for natural looking results. Ultherapy is the only FDA approved non-invasive lifting treatment for the neck and chin area.

How It Works

When we age, the reason our skin loses its elasticity is because the collagen in our body breaks down. This causes loose, hanging or sagging skin that can be annoying and very difficult to get rid of. Ultherapy helps increase the elasticity and strength of the skin by targeting the problemed area with ultrasound technology that delivers a thermal effect underneath the skin. This causes the body to begin producing new collagen on its own.

Benefits of Ultherapy

The largest benefit of Ultherapy is there is no downtime. Patients may experience some flushed and maybe swollen skin, but that should cease in a few hours following your procedure. There are very few side effects with Ultherapy such as, red or swollen skin, mild bruising or numbness to the area. No harmful side effects have been reported after an Ultherapy treatment.

During the treatment you shouldn’t experience any pain, just a slight warming sensation that ensures the body has begun the collagen building process. Another added benefit for Ultherapy is it is customized for each patient based on their areas of concern, and the amount of excess skin. For some patients, several treatments will be needed, but for others they start seeing results after their 1st or 2nd procedure.
