It’s not a hyperbole to say that we will all change immensely throughout our lives. We grow and develop, both physically and mentally; it’s the way of the world. The appearance of our skin is part of this process. Skin changes throughout our lifetime and, while this is to be expected, it is not always welcomed with a fanfare.
What might be worth a fanfare – even the full red carpet treatment – is finding out about Ultherapy.
What does it do?
Ultherapy improves the appearance of ageing skin by helping your skin’s natural repair process. Your skin contains a natural protein called collagen which keeps the structure in your skin. If untreated, collagen can begin to weaken and this results in the matured appearance of skin. The stimulation of new collagen simply helps your skin to stay firmer and smoother.
How does it work?
Ultherapy is an FDA-cleared treatment that consists of micro-focused ultrasound with visualisation (MFU-V) which creates a thermal effect deep under the skin, where the collagen and elastin is produced. This process can help to reduce the effects of ageing by putting structure back into your skin. Because the ultrasound goes so deep under the skin, it ensures that you get the most effective results possible. Results tend to be seen over a 3 to 6 month period for most people. If you think seeing results in a relatively short space of time sounds impressive, then you’d be right!
What are the benefits?
What might seem like the icing on the cake is the fact that it is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure. The reality is that you can receive a treatment and leave the clinic immediately as there is no ‘down-time’. Having no down-time simply means that you don’t have to wait to resume normal activities, which can be an enormous benefit in our busy daily lives. Not only that, but results are even more effective, because your practitioner can actually see the layers of tissue that they are treating.
Can anybody have Ultherapy?
People with a mild to moderate skin laxity are able to benefit most from Ultherapy. This is where the skin is starting to look less firm than before and by receiving treatment, you may start to notice how much more refreshed you look, as your skin is given a natural and gradual lift.
Ultherapy can also work in harmony with other treatments, for improving the signs of wrinkles for example, so it is worth speaking to a clinic with a ‘Certificate of Authenticity’ about the combinations available to help achieve that fresh-faced appearance that could be a reality in just a matter of months.
Is it safe for me to do?
The beauty of Ultherapy is that it has been used across the world. Over 1 million treatments have been performed and ultrasound imaging has been safely used for 50 years in medicine which means it is reliant upon a well-practised methodology as long as the clinic’s certificate is FDA approved.
So, what are you waiting for? If you desire a fresher and firmer look, find your nearest clinic and try something new. You never know, you may just want to roll out the red carpet!
