Has your appearance suffered because of overly lax or sagging skin? This problem sometimes occurs because of significant weight loss or aging and can be addressed through a number of procedures. Some of the more popular treatments are non-surgical skin tightening procedures, which is a plus for many people who would like to avoid some of the downtime, expense, and complications that are sometimes associated with traditional skin tightening surgery.
A Closer Look at Ultrasound Skin Tightening
Ultrasound energy can be directed and used as a non-surgical skin tightening treatment by heating skin at certain depths and areas for the induction of collagen fibers and firmer skin. We deliver this ultrasound energy using a hand-held device that transmits ultrasound energy into your skin. Ultrasound skin tightening is known for being an extremely safe technique, while ultrasound technology itself has been in use for several decades.
The most popular brand of ultrasound skin tightening is known as Ultherapy®, which is FDA-approved for the treatment of the neck, chin, brow, and chest. The treatment is best-suited for those who wish to treat early aging signs on the face and neck. Some people use ultrasound to postpone the need for conventional surgery. You should notice results within months that can remain in effect for quite a while if you practice good skin care.
If you undergo this procedure, your skin will see gradual tightening over time. This helps the results to look natural and subtle. Nobody will be able to tell that you had a procedure done. And really, that’s what most people want when they undergo non-surgical skin tightening. They want to address loose skin, but they don’t want to look majorly different or have others know that they have a procedure done.
