Loose skin is an annoying cosmetic issue that practically everyone will struggle with at some point as they grow older. Thousands of creams and ointments claim that they are going to tighten and tone your skin, but very few of these products do anything more than moisturize the outer layers of the epidermis. Ultherapy® is an FDA-approved treatment that utilizes ultrasonic energy to trigger your body’s natural healing process. This amazing technology will help you rebuild your confidence by restoring your youthful appearance.
Understanding Ultrasonic Energy
Over the last few decades, ultrasonic energy has been used to capture images below the surface of the skin. Ultrasounds give doctors the ability to carefully inspect every inch of the body without making any incisions. After dozens of exhaustive studies, researchers discovered that they could adjust the frequency of the ultrasound machines to trigger the body’s healing response. When the ultrasonic waves penetrate the epidermis, the body will immediately attempt to heal the soft tissue. The area is flooded with collagen and other important proteins that tighten loose skin and restore damaged cells.
Your Ultherapy® Appointment
One of the reasons why Ultherapy® has become so popular is because it is completely non-invasive. During your appointment, you are going to simply relax while one of our specialists places a small paddle just over the skin. Once the device is turned on, you will most likely feel warmth deep below your skin.
Many of our patients return back to work or their other normal activities following their appointments. For patients who have particularly loose skin, multiple treatments might be needed to achieve the desired results. The full results will become apparent in the months after the initial appointment, and you can maintain your appearance with follow-up treatments as needed.
The Benefits of Ultherapy®
Treating loose skin no longer requires invasive operations that take weeks to recover from. This exciting procedure is one of the safest and most effective ways to restore your natural beauty and boost your confidence.
