When we are young we have an abundance of collagen in our skin. Collagen in plentiful and it is tightly bound, much like a slinky right out of the box. After the age of twenty, we start losing collagen. As we age not only do we have less collagen but the collagen that remains becomes more loosely bound like a slinky that has gone down a few too many flights of stairs. As this happens our skin loses strength and starts to sag. We also lose elastin which gives our skin the ability to spring back after being stretched. Ultherapy can prevent this from happening and, to a degree, reverse it.
Ultherapy is the ONLY FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that lifts and tightens the face, neck, chin, and brow and improves lines and wrinkles on the chest. It is an award-winning treatment that is in a league of its own. This article will explain why.
Let’s begin with the simple fact that the goal of all skin tightening procedures is to cause controlled injury to the skin. The purpose is to trigger a healing response that will produce new collagen. To understand how injuring your skin can be beneficial, you might consider the benefits of going to the gym. During your workout, you use movement, gravity and perhaps added resistance to intentionally cause controlled injury to your muscle fibers. Your body then not only repairs the fibers but overcompensates and your muscles become bigger, stronger and more toned. Exercise, unfortunately, cannot injure skin so we have to rely on technology to do this for us. The result, however, is much the same. The healing response triggered by the injury causes the skin to become thicker, stronger, and more toned.
So what makes Ultherapy superior to other modalities that can tighten skin? Lasers, light and radio-frequency devices can also be used to cause controlled injury but none can offer the same degree, precision, and depth of injury that Ultherapy is capable of. Why? Because Ultherapy uses Ultrasound! Ultrasound allows us to see beneath the surface of the skin to safely target the desired tissue more precisely and deeply than any other treatment within the aesthetics industry.
1) At 1.5 mm for superficial tightening where it is needed.
2) At 3.0 mm to injure deeply into the dermis.
3) At 4.5 mm to bypass the dermis and injure the muscle beneath known as the SMAS. The only other way to injure the SMAS in a controlled way is with a surgical facelift.
Ultherapy is cutting-edge, but it involves no cutting at all. It is a non-invasive treatment that allows you to have the treatment during the day and go out for dinner that very night. Results develop gradually as new collagen forms over a few months after the treatment. Unlike surgery, there is no risk that you will look like anyone other than yourself, only a younger version of yourself!
Skinpossible’s advanced Ultherapists customize every treatment to suit the needs of each individual patient. Ultherapy can reduce sagging on the neck, lift jowls, define the jawline, elevate the brows, reduce hooding of the eyelids and more! It also works very well for tightening skin on areas of the body such as the chest and arms.
Ultherapy is non-invasive so you to have the treatment during the day and get your rodeo on that very night. Results develop gradually as new collagen forms and there is no risk that you will look like anyone other than yourself, only a younger version of yourself.
