In the past, the only way to address certain skin care issues was by using surgery or by using some form of invasive therapy. Not only are surgery and other more invasive therapies uncomfortable, but they can also leave you with some permanent scars or disfigurement. Really, most people only have a minor or a moderate amount of skin degeneration. Surgery is likely too extreme of a procedure for the issues that they are facing. Ultherapy® is one of the newest treatments on the market when it comes to non-invasive skin care treatment. It is extremely effective and has produced unbelievably positive results for many people.
To understand why this treatment is so beneficial, it’s good to get a basic understanding of how it works. During treatment, ultrasonic waves are directed at your skin. These ultrasonic waves are able to easily pass through healthy layers of skin cells. However, these ultrasonic waves will resonate when they hit skin cells that are of a certain density underneath the skin. This vibration causes carefully controlled heat.
The heat, in turn, safely destroys the cells in a very effective way. Next, your lymphatic system kicks in by gradually removing the dead or damaged cells. The activation of your lymphatic system, as well as the heat caused by the vibration of the cells leads to increased blood flow in the treated area. This makes your skin heal faster. As blood is delivered to the treated area, nutrients are delivered, which improves the overall condition and appearance of your skin.
Ultherapy® is a non-invasive approach to treating a lot of the problems that your skin develops as you age. It can address things like fine lines and wrinkles, which are some of the most common signs of aging. Since it is a non-surgical procedure, the recovery time is virtually nonexistent.
