Countless American women and men are tired of seeing loose and sagging skin when they look in the mirror, but don’t want to go under the knife. And why would they? “Under the knife” is a rather ominous turn of phrase, and aside from the inherent risks of any surgery, patients also have to deal with pain, the fog of anesthesia, and time away from work, friends and family.
Fortunately, there is a simple way to fight skin laxity without undergoing plastic surgery. It’s called Ultherapy, and it’s a safe, FDA approved technique for lifting and tightening skin on the neck, chin, and face.
In the past decade there has been an explosion in the number of cosmetic procedures (a 500% increase) thanks to minimally invasive procedures like Ultherapy. In fact, there were 9.3 million cosmetic procedures performed in 2010, and 83% of them involved minimally invasive procedures like Ultherapy. Since it first hit the market, this painless skin tightening treatment has already helped more than 500,000 people feel more confident in their own skin.
What Is Ultherapy, and How Does It Tighten Skin?
Ultherapy is a portmanteau of the words ultrasound and therapy. Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to naturally tighten skin without any of the risks of unpleasant aftereffects of surgery.
Here’s how it works:
Ultrasound waves are delivered below the skin’s surface into the dermal layers, where it stimulates the natural production of collagen and elastin. Even better, ultrasound is the same imaging technology used to view babies in the womb, which means doctors can see exactly which layers of tissue and skin need the most stimulation. This targeted delivery allows an unprecedented degree of precision, setting Ultherapy apart from traditional skin tightening procedures like face lifts, hormone replacement therapy, botox treatments, and coolsculpting. This exciting new technology works so quickly, it’s almost like receiving home health care.
So while many people believe they have to schedule a face lift to achieve lasting results, that’s only because they haven’t heard of this exciting new treatment. Less than 60 minutes after an Ultherapy session, you can go back to work, home, or play.
And unlike some other skin lifting treatments that promise results that sound too good to be true, Ultherapy is 100% FDA approved to treat skin laxity. That means you can enjoy all the benefits of a more youthful, confident facial profile without any of the anxiety and hazards associated with plastic surgery.
