Put the Knife Down, Doctor!
February 14, 2015
If you have a face full of loose and sagging skin, you might have often considered a face lift. However, one of the major drawbacks for many people is that a face lift requires actual surgery. If you don’t want to go under the knife, for any reason, but you still want to see the effects of a face lift, you might have also considered dermal fillers. But fillers only do so much—and usually they work better treating wrinkles and filling in sunken cheeks. What if you just want to get rid of that loose skin? There is good news. There is a newer, revolutionary treatment available called Ultherapy.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
Because it’s not surgery or a dermal filler, many people wonder what could help the skin spring back like that. Essentially, it uses ultrasound energy to heat the skin from the inside out. This helps your skin’s collagen. Collagen is a protein in your skin that gives it its strength and elasticity. As the ultrasound energy activates the collagen already present in your skin, it also helps your body produce more. This collagen then helps your skin bounce back on its own.
A Great Start to a New Face
While Ultherapy will not be able to completely replace a face lift, it is a good start, especially if you only have a little bit of work that needs to be done. Perhaps your eyes and cheeks are only a little droopy and you don’t want surgery for something so minor. This would be a perfect procedure for you. It can also be a great follow-up procedure. If you want to prolong the effects of your plastic surgery, Ultherapy can be a great way to touch-up your face without going through another surgery.
Basically, if you want a tighter-looking face, but don’t need enough work done to go for a full face lift, you would be a good candidate for Ultherapy.
