Ultrasound Therapy for Face Lift
Beauty is being the best possible version of yourself on the inside and out – Megan Whitefield
As we age, we go through a lot of physical and emotional changes. The former changes are more noticeable and can completely alter the way you feel about yourself. To cut it down simply, every single cell in our body has a definite lifespan after which it withers and dies. Sounds Gross? But, that’s the way nature is designed.
“Face is the index of the mind” goes a common saying. Everyone aspires to look confident and attractive in a society. So it is quite natural to expect that, when you notice sagging of skin in your face, your confidence goes for a toss.
As years roll by, as in all the other parts of the body, skin on the eyebrows, chin, and neck starts to sag or simply lose elasticity. Collagen is the natural protein that is responsible for firm and toned skin. Skin starts to sag when collagen loses its elasticity. There are many treatments for this offered ranging from beauty creams, injectable fillers, surgical options, noninvasive treatments etc.
Out of all these, ultrasound therapy, also called ultherapy, for a toned look, has stood the test of time for the efficacy of the results and safety of the procedure.
What exactly is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a procedure where focused ultrasound energy is directed to deep tissues under the skin to rekindle the natural power of the skin to reproduce new collagen. The energy can penetrate the deepest layers of the skin, not even possible by laser treatments. The deep layers of the skin can be continually monitored by acoustic imaging so that the energy gets where it is precisely needed.
Do you dread going under the scalpel? Ultrasound therapy for facelift is a safe alternative to surgery with no cuts, stitches and no downtime. Moreover, it is the only noninvasive therapy approved by FDA to smoothen out the lines and wrinkles on your face and other parts of our body.
Ultrasound therapy acts gently on your skin using its natural regenerative process to produce collagen by a process called neocollagenesis.
The whole procedure gets completed in a matter of about 60-90 minutes, and in most cases, the patient can get back to her/his own usual self almost immediately. This therapy is useful for all skin types and tones.
As in any cosmetic procedure, minimal side effects like flushing of the skin, numbness, mild bruising, swelling, and tingling sensation may be noticed. Nevertheless, these effects do not stay long. The results become apparent in two to three months and typically last for a year or two.
Ultrasound therapy has been used in the medical profession for more than 50 years with remarkable success. Medical practitioners are of the opinion that ultherapy used in conjunction with other treatments can maximize results to provide that desirable youthful look.
If you are of the opinion that your face does not reflect your true self, do try out this treatment which has created a revolution of sorts for that look you always craved for.
