Ultherapy, a non-surgical procedure uses ultrasound to get your cells into ‘neo collagenesis’, that is, get them to produce new collagen which is the building block for supple, firm skin. It works on mild sagging—around brows, loose chins and décolletage lines.
Ultrasound energy penetrates deeper to stimulate production of your body’s own collagen and elastin, for natural-looking results without surgery or downtime. Usually a 90-minute procedure. Results can last up to two years but only a doctor can tell you what will work best for you. It’s FDA-cleared.
Advantage and Downside of Ultherapy
Ageing is the process that breaks down the collagen, resulting in loss of skin strength and elasticity. This treatment works on time-tested ultrasound technology that helps produce new collagen growth.
The results of Ultherapy tend to last around two years but they can last longer if you take steps to boost your collagen production and keep your existing collagen healthy.
The downside of Ultherapy mostly arises from variations in the technique and skill of the practitioner. There is the danger of a botched procedure: this could result in permanent side effects that could worsen the patient’s appearance post-procedure. So its recommended to get this treatment for a professional skin studio specializing in the same.
Small tip for Evaluation: There is Rf Microneedling also available in this segment but Ultherapy requires fewer treatments and lasts longer than RF Microneedling. Also if you are looking to target skin other than the face and neck, then you may try Thermage that works on sagging skin on the abdomen, thighs, arms, and buttocks — areas not approved for treatment with Ultherapy.
What is the best age?
Ideally this treatment is for anyone who is seeking to improve mid – moderate skin laxity. However, most candidates begin in their mid 30s to 40s.
