Ultherapy® is the only FDA-approved, non-invasive procedure for lifting the skin on your neck, under your chin, and along your eyebrows. Most of us, as time takes his toll, would welcome a more vibrant, youthful glow. At Persona Medical Spa in Houston, we are proud to offer this treatment to our clients.
How Does It Work?
While people often associate the treatment with cosmetic surgery, it is completely different and does not involve cutting into the skin like traditional cosmetic surgery. Collagen is a natural protein that keeps our skin firm and toned. As we age, it begins to break down, which causes the skin to lose its elasticity, strength, and fortitude. Ultherapy® targets collagen by delivering ultrasonic sound energy to the deepest layers of skin, causing them to overheat. This damages the existing collagen, which triggers new collagen production that will, over time, lift and tighten the skin, restoring a smooth, more youthful look. The Ultherapy® device also uses ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to look deep into your skin tissue to determine the spots that will most benefit from treatment and then focus on those spots.
Is It Safe?
For over 50 years, ultrasound has proven to be effective and safe throughout the medical world. Ultherapy® has been cleared by the FDA after demonstrating safety in clinical studies, and tens of thousands of treatments have been performed worldwide with no significant adverse events.
What is the Treatment Like?
The procedure takes place in the comfort of our office. As the ultrasound energy is delivered, it will stimulate the collagen-building process. There is typically no downtime after the procedure. Although some patients see some initial results directly after the treatment, the majority of tightening and lifting of the skin occurs in the months that follow.
Who Should Get Ultherapy®?
Someone with some degree of skin laxity, to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm will most likely benefit from a session of Ultherapy®. If you have loose skin on your face or neck, this procedure may be perfect for you.
Ultherapy® is a simple and safe procedure that has helped hundreds of thousands of people look and feel their best. What are you waiting for?
