Struggling with Loose, Saggy Skin? Here’s What You Should Know about Ultherapy!
- Posted on: Mar 15 2021
At Azul Cosmetic Surgery and Medical Spa, we recognize the value of nonsurgical treatment options. We are proud to provide powerful modalities like Ultherapy in our Naples, Bonita Springs, and Fort Myers offices. If you are struggling with loose, saggy skin that is softening your jawline and upper neck, you may want to know a few things about Ultherapy, one of the leading skin-tightening treatments available today.
It is FDA-Cleared
Ultherapy received FDA-clearance in 2009 for the treatment of drooping eyebrows. In 2012, clearance expanded to treat the jawline and submental (under the chin) areas. FDA-clearance comes after a device has demonstrated a high degree of safety and efficacy in clinical trials. When you have Ultherapy, you can trust that the technology that is used has been proven.
Ultherapy is Not a Facelift
Facial aging isn’t all about lines and wrinkles. It is also about tissue laxity, thinning skin, and volume loss. These symptoms result from changes in the skin, including a drastic reduction in collagen and elastin. Ultherapy treatments lift the skin by restoring firmness and elasticity. Treatment is performed without anesthesia, although we do use methods make this treatment comfortable, including Pronox. No downtime is needed to recover. Because lifting is the result of collagen constriction and tissue remodeling, cosmetic improvements become more visible over time.
Ultherapy is Not a Laser Treatment
Laser skin resurfacing is one way to rejuvenate the skin, but it does not work in the same way as Ultherapy. Lasers affect the uppermost layers of the skin. Ultherapy’s ultrasound energy bypasses these layers, penetrating more deeply to stimulate cellular activity in the dermis.
Treatment is Safe for All Skin Types
Unlike lasers, which heat superficial tissue, ultrasound waves reach deep enough to stimulate regeneration without affecting pigment. This means that Ultherapy is safe for all skin tones and types.
It Takes Just One Treatment to Achieve Profound Change
Ultherapy is a single-visit treatment that lasts 60 to 90 minutes. The energy that is deposited at a precise depth of tissue continues to work for several months. The results of a single Ultherapy treatment can last up to two years. Many people who rely on collagen stimulation for anti-aging benefits schedule touch-up treatments once a year. This ensures that the body produces healthy new collagen and elastin before the effects of the initial procedure wear off.
