You have been noticing that your face has wrinkles due to your skin becoming looser. This is a normal result of aging which happens because gravity pulls down on your skin over time. When you were younger, your body produced elastin and collagen proteins to help keep your skin tight. With age, your body stopped producing these critical proteins in such high quantities, making it far more difficult for your skin to counteract the effects of gravity. Fortunately, you live in a time when there are numerous cosmetic procedures available to help you improve the tightness of your skin. In doing so, the fine lines and wrinkles will inevitably fade as the skin rejuvenates. One of these cosmetic procedures that is growing in popularity, mostly due to its noninvasive approach, is a technique called Ultherapy®.
How Does Ultherapy® Achieve Non-Invasive Skin Tightening?
While cosmetic methods exist that puncture, cut or damage the skin in order to stimulate the healing response that causes the body to create elastin and collagen proteins, Ultherapy® does not break the skin to achieve this end goal. Rather, Ultherapy® takes a non-invasive approach by leveraging the power of ultrasound energy to target the subdermal layers of skin where more lift is required. The heat resulting from the ultrasound therapy device that is being used stimulates the production of elastin and collagen proteins which provide volume and help to tighten the skin, making it look much younger as a result.
The Recovery Time
With many cosmetic procedures that are used to improve the tightness of the skin, there can be considerable recovery time. In the case of ultrasound therapy, this is different. Since this approach is non-invasive, there is no recovery time involved after the procedure is over. This means that you can have Ultherapy® done over lunch and be back to work the same day. This is good news for people who do not like to be out of commission for a long time, and like to get quick results on the go.
The Results Improve Over Time
With Ultherapy®, the results you achieve do not come all at once. In fact, it takes some time for your body to start producing elastin and collagen proteins. The excellent news is that your body continues to do this for many months after you receive Ultherapy®. This means your face continues to look younger and younger for some time as the process of producing restorative proteins continues.
