Time and gravity have a way of pulling your skin in a direction you would rather it not go. Around this time, you will probably try creams, serums and other approaches to try to revitalize your facial skin in some meaningful way. Yet, you will quickly learn that most of these approaches are little more than temporary fixes that do not bring any lasting improvements to your situation. Fortunately, new cosmetic procedures are being introduced to rejuvenate your facial skin all the time. One of these cosmetic approaches is a procedure known as Ultherapy face treatment, and it could make a considerable difference in the way you look.
What Is Ultherapy Face Treatment?
When it comes to the skin of your face, you want the skin to go back to having lift, volume and elasticity. This is what helps to tighten up skin and to cause fine lines and wrinkles to fade in a significant way. You have probably seen an ultrasound before. Usually, ultrasound energy is associated with internal imaging during pregnancy or other medical-based diagnostic procedures. In one sense, a professional will use the ultrasound energy of an Ultherapy device to help peer deep beneath the layers of your facial skin to determine the best places to target during your Ultherapy procedure. Then they will use directed ultrasound energy to heat up the areas beneath the skin where they believe you need to increase volume and lift. This process of Ultherapy stimulates collagen and elastin production. While collagen tends to work much like a filler to provide more volume and lift, the elastin proteins work to make the skin tighter and elastic. The Ultherapy face treatment works to cause this process of producing key proteins to help the skin continue improving in appearance for some time, with the most noticeable results appearing around 12 weeks.
While the results of Ultherapy face treatment are not immediate, they do improve how your face looks over time. In addition, the younger appearance that you start to achieve will last for a year to two-years on average. In many cases, Ultherapy face treatment can take many years off your appearance and make you feel younger too. Plus, this is all being achieved without having to go through a full-on facelift.
