As more men and women look for ways to reverse skin laxity, non-invasive skin tightening treatments have become as popular as ever. There are several non-surgical skin tightening treatments now being widely performed,because they require no anesthesia, and no downtime, and Ultherapy is considered one of the best. But how is Ultherapy different from other skin tightening options.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a skin enhancement system that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to tone and tighten the skin, creating natural, long lasting results. Ultherapy is safe for use on the face, neck, and chest. It is a quick and virtually painless procedure that takes 30 -90 minutes to complete, depending on the area being treated.
The Ultherapy device delivers RF energyto the deep layers of the skin, but does not affect the outer skin layers. The heat from the RF waves also helps to stimulate the collagen below the skin, giving it a plumper appearance.
Why is Ultherapy different
Its use of ultrasound imaging is one reason why Ultherapy is different from other skin tightening treatments. Ultrasound imaging utilizes sound waves to create a visual of the underlying tissue. This allows the medical practitioner to place the energy in the areas of the skin where it will be most beneficial, thereby making treatment very precise.
Ultherapy also creates long lasting results, because it affects the deep layers of the skin where new collagen and elastin forms. Because of this the results achieved look natural, and last a long time.
