Your skin is bound to deteriorate with time, it is the natural way. However, Ultherapy from SkinDC Dermatologist may be just what you need to restore your skin’s youthfulness.
Ultherapy is a treatment that utilizes ultrasound technology to induce the production of collagen in the skin’s underlying layers. The main reason that your skin deteriorates is due to the lack of elastin and collagen that happens with time.
Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure that can help you produce more collagen and give your skin a younger and healthier appearance. Though there have been over one million successful Ultherapy procedures, it still helps to know what you are getting yourself into before you undertake the procedure.
The following are some things you should know about Ultherapy:
FDA approval is the hallmark of certification in the United States as far as medical procedures are concerned. Once the FDA approves a procedure, it means that it is safe and has been tested in all manner of ways to ascertain it.
Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared non-invasive procedure for lifting and tightening the skin on the neck, face, eyebrows, and chest.
Uses the Body’s Natural Healing Ability
Ultherapy uses your body’s natural healing capacity to lift and tighten the skin where it is applied. Therefore, it has no side effects as it is only enhancing what the body can do.
Ultherapy works by stimulating the structural support layers that exist deep within the skin’s surface. Your body’s reaction to Ultherapy is to perform neocollegenesis (collagen production) to repair the area stimulated by the procedure.
The effect of the procedure is healthier and tighter skin which makes you appear younger than you truly are.
Not Laser Therapy
Many people mistakenly think that Ultherapy is a form of laser therapy. Ultherapy utilizes ultrasound technology that uses magnetic energy and not light to repair the skin.
Laser treatment works from the outside, unlike Ultherapy which works from the inside out. The way it works is the main difference between the two different forms of skin rejuvenation.
Ultherapy will not disturb your skin in any way as it bypasses the surface and goes down to the underlying layers. Therefore, there are no marks or scars from Ultherapy.
Safe for All Skin Types
Ultherapy is safe for skin types of all kinds, color, and complexion. Since it is not meant to affect the surface of the skin, the procedure is completely indifferent to it.
Anyone with healthy skin can undergo the procedure with no ill side effects. It is one of the few universal skincare treatments.
One Visit Needed
Unlike many other procedures meant to rejuvenate the skin, Ultherapy only requires one visit to the dermatologist and you are good to go.
A typical session at the dermatologist for Ultherapy lasts between an hour and ninety minutes. You can simply take time off your regular schedule to have the procedure done.
Your skincare habits and the natural aging process will determine when you return for another session.
