What If You’re Not Ready for a Facelift Yet
- Posted on: Nov 25 2014
If you got in touch with a cosmetic surgeon years ago and asked about what’s the best that can be done with loose, sagging skin beneath the jaw and around the neck, a face lift or a neck lift may have been recommended. Both options call for surgery. By and large, having surgery translates to shelling out a considerable amount of funds and longer recovery periods.
Fortunately, things have changed! You will surely be delighted to find out that you have another option when it comes to getting rid of the extra fleshy skin under the chin and the dreaded turkey neck minus the risks, downtime, and high costs of surgery. Have you read or heard about Ultherapy?
What Makes Ultherapy Unique?
First of all, Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure that is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in tightening loose skin and reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles in the jaw, neck, and the decolletage (chest) areas.
Although its effects may not be as dramatic as a face lift, the subtle yet noticeable results of Ultherapy makes it a favorite among those who prefer not to go under the knife to improve the appearance of loose, sagging skin. Moreover, individuals who are not good candidates for a face ift (say they have existing health problems, can’t take longer times off from work during recovery, or have budget constraints) may opt for Ultherapy and reap the similar benefits of a face lift.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
Nothing is applied into the skin except for the ultrasound pulses in this non-invasive treatment. Initially, ultrasound is utilized to visualize the deep layers of the skin. Once the superficial layers of the skin have been bypassed, the same ultrasound energy is precisely deposited into the deeper layers of the skin which in turn stimulates the production of collagen. Collagen is the protein component in your skin which is responsible for its plump and supple appearance.
All You Need Is a Single Treatment!
Unlike other non-invasive skin tightening treatments, Ultherapy only involves a single session and results will be immediately noticeable and further progress will be visible 2 to 3 months following treatment. Bruising and swelling may be present but they will generally disappear in a few days. In addition, pain during treatment is common but can be reduced with oral sedation or local anesthesia.
