Ultherapy® is an FDA-approved method to tighten skin and improve its elasticity using ultrasound energy. It is non-invasive, meaning no surgery or injections are involved. It can be used to give a youthful look to several areas of the body. We will look at just some of the areas of the body where Ultherapy® can be useful.
Ultherapy® sessions typically take from 30 to 90 minutes, and the stimulation of collagen can last for months. After that, another Ultherapy® session can provide continued stimulation and the reduction of wrinkles, as well as providing additional elasticity to the skin.
The eyebrows are not immune to the effects of aging, and it goes beyond just graying hair. Ultherapy® can be a non-invasive and effective treatment for droopy eyebrows, giving them a nice lift and minimizing their sagging. Revitalizing them and giving them a youthful look without the potential downsides of surgery has a number of benefits.
The Chin and Neck
One of the other areas of the face that tends to droop with age is the chin. Jowls can develop as can a double chin or even a turkey neck. The ultrasonic energy used in Ultherapy® can revitalize the skin by adding elasticity, reducing the sagging and tightening the skin. This is a great option for those who want a younger-looking chin and neck without getting a facelift.
When considering youth-enhancing or plastic surgery options, the eyelids sometimes get overlooked. That said, as with the rest of the body, it is not immune to the signs of aging and begins to sag and wrinkle. Ultherapy® is best used on the eyelids for smoothing lines and wrinkles as well as to provide extra support in areas where there is loose and sagging skin.
