All of us are affected by aging, but we shouldn’t be discouraged by it. Don’t be alarmed if you have begun to notice some of the signs of aging! Let us help! At Sule Facial Plastic Surgery Clinic in Dallas, TX, we offer an innovative anti-aging treatment, Ultherapy, that’s often referred to as a non-surgical facelift. If you are looking for a treatment that can combat visible aging but don’t want to commit to an invasive procedure, this wonderful treatment might be right for you.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
Despite the fact that Ultherapy is not the same thing as a surgical facelift, the results are comparable to those of a surgical facelift: it offers tighter, lifted, and younger-looking skin. This is a form of aesthetic surgery that uses ultrasonic energy to force the skin to contract, which delivers the tightening effect, and regenerates collagen in the deeper layers.
Not only does it tighten the skin, but it also promotes collagen and elastin production within the body, which helps reverse some of the more noticeable signs of aging. This treatment uses both natural and scientific principles to treat and rejuvenate the skin from the inside out.
Why We Love This Treatment
It’s Perfect for Those Who Don’t Want Surgery
Its non-surgical nature is one advantage of Ultherapy. The entire treatment requires no cutting or invasive treatments; no needles or devices are inserted under the skin during the entire treatment.
No surgery means lower costs, no extensive recovery time, no pain, virtually no risks, and no need to follow a laundy-list of pre-treatment regulations. You can have a treatment in a quick session and go back to normal life.
It Treats Many Different Areas
When it comes to skin laxity, there are many things to know. As collagen and elastin are produced less by the body, sagging and drooping of the skin is apparent. It can affect other parts of the body as well, even though most people notice this obvious sign of aging as soon as it starts to affect their complexion.
This innovative system can be used both on the body and on the face to address lax skin. The most common treatment areas are the neck, chest, jawline, eyebrows, and cheeks, but ask us about what areas you’re noticing sagging skin and how this treatment can help.
It Uses Powerful Ultrasound Energy
There are various types of sound energy, including ultrasonic energy. Pregnant women may be familiar with ultrasound energy because they had ultrasounds during their prenatal visits. But it has many more uses. You can improve the appearance of your skin by using ultrasound energy. Sound waves can penetrate deeper layers of your skin, helping your body to fight back against aging.
An imaging screen is attached to the applicator so that a thermal image of your skin appears on the screen when it is touched. Your technician can then move the handpiece based on what they are seeing. Thus, the ultrasound energy will be delivered exactly according to your needs and the plan you work out with us for rejuvenating your skin.
FAQ About Ultherapy
Who Is a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
In this treatment, people–both men and women–who are unhappy with the appearance of loose skin on their body can tighten it and lift it without ever having to undergo an invasive treatment. Skin laxity is a common problem for some patients, while others want to avoid the aging process altogether. Even if there aren’t many wrinkles or lines visible in the mirror, people still see them and wish they were reversed: this treatment is perfect.
When you want to delay the effects of aging without undergoing surgery, you should consider this treatment. The best candidates will also be realistic about their expectations, their potential outcomes, and the limitations of the treatment. If pregnant women are not cleared by their doctor to receive this treatment, they will not be eligible.
What Happens During the Appointment?
After we confirm that you are a good candidate, we’ll schedule your treatment. Depending on the patient’s area and how many areas they wish to treat, some patients may only need one treatment to achieve the desired results, while others may need a few. Our office has a comfortable and private treatment room that you will use for your treatment. A topical numbing solution may be applied to your skin depending on your needs and preferences, though this is not a painful treatment. A numbing cream just makes some people feel more comfortable in general.
Before beginning the actual treatment, your technician will apply ultrasound gel to the area of your body that will be treated so that the device can make contact with your skin and transmit the digital image. While the device is making contact with your skin, a warming sensation will be felt. When the image appears, your technician can see the deeper layers of your skin and determine how to treat them.
The technician can achieve optimum results by focusing on the areas that have lost most collagen over time. With digital imaging, it’s possible to customize the treatment exactly to your needs. Your technician can also spend more time on the areas that need the most rejuvenation, collagen, or elastin production, in addition to delivering extra energy to spots where the skin needs more tightening in general.
When Will I See Results?
Ultrasound energy contracts collagen beneath the surface of the skin, which can result in immediate results. Results noticeably improve the quality of the skin, as well as tightening it and lifting it. However, not everyone will notice a change right away.
It is not a cause for concern if there isn’t much change immediately. Your body may begin creating collagen immediately after your treatment, but you won’t see the best results for several weeks, even if you notice some changes immediately. Everyone will see their best results a few weeks after treatment. That’s because collagen production takes time.
Producing New Collagen
Growing collagen takes time; it is not a fast process. However, once it happens, the results will be dramatic. Your skin will become more supple, wrinkles and lines will disappear, and your face will appear smoother. Your skin will appear and feel tighter and firmer even though you won’t get the exact same results as if you had a facelift. With non-surgical treatments, you get the next best thing. You can have a rejuvenated face, and your skin can be improved without ever undergoing surgery.
Should I Schedule Maintenance Treatments?
To get your desired results, you won’t have to undergo multiple treatments. Just one treatment will give you long-lasting results. It is important to realize, however, that Ultherapy is not able to stop the aging process. Eventually, your skin will begin to show signs of aging once again. Do not be discouraged when this occurs. Consider scheduling another treatment to increase your body’s natural collagen and elastin production.
What Are the Benefits of This Treatment?
An alternative to surgery, Ultherapy provides a number of benefits. A process called neocollagenesis occurs during this treatment, which improves the skin and stimulates collagen production. In recent years, more and more people have turned to this innovative treatment to address their goals while avoiding surgery and painful treatments. Here are just a few of the best benefits of this treatment:
It Harnesses a Natural Process
A natural and effective method of healing and rejuvenating the skin, neocollagenesis is a process that takes place from the inside out. Because it is totally natural, this anti-aging skincare treatment is perfect for people who are concerned about how treatments might affect their body or their skin. Using ultrasound energy stimulates the production of new collagen in your body. This results in a softer and younger appearance, but with no chemicals or unnatural invasions.
You Don’t Need to Schedule Downtime
Many minimally invasive treatments and surgical treatments require downtime. An Ultherapy treatment does not require downtime. There is no need to change your work schedule or take time off for your treatment or after-care directives. When your treatment is complete, you can return to everyday life.
It Provides Real Results
A full range of patients can experience the benefits of Ultherapy. Even though the results are likely to appear gradually rather than instantaneously for many individuals, they will surely appear (and be noticeable). You will feel more confident about your appearance once you remove the signs of aging that are making you feel insecure.
Most patients invest in skincare products as soon as they start noticing some signs of aging on their faces and bodies, but this is not enough. A product that stimulates your body to produce collagen is necessary to improve the appearance of your skin at its deepest level. That’s just what this treatment will do.
