Age comes with many benefits: wisdom, knowledge, and the ability to say, “I lived through that and am okay.” However, age also comes with some things that are deemed as less than beneficial and more as detrimental. Things like sagging skin and fine lines and wrinkles, are enough to make some people turn away from their reflection in the mirror. Embrace your age and yourself by taking things into your own hands and consider Ulthera.
What Is Ulthera?
Ulthera is a non-invasive procedure that is used to lift and tighten the areas around the lower face and upper neck. As you age, these areas of your face tend to loose elasticity and will leave you with what some people call “Turkey Neck.” However by using ultrasound technology, Ulthera both lifts and tightens these portions of the face in order to give you a younger and more taut looking appearance.
If it’s non-invasive, how does it work?
It might sound like some kind of hoax to think that there is a non-invasive, non-surgical way to lift and tighten your neck. And although surgeries like face lifts are proven to give people excellent results, the procedure itself is a little bit intense. By using ultrasound technology, plastic surgeons are able to target precise areas of the face, neck, and brow and boost the body’s natural ability to produce collagen. Because the procedure initiates your body’s collagen production, it typically takes around 2-3 months for you to fully see the results. And depending on how severe the area is that you are targeting, you may have to undergo several treatments through the years.
Is it painful?
As one of the biggest downfalls of things like facelifts, the recovery time can keep you in bed and out of commission for weeks. That’s why many people are looking towards Ulthera as the next wave of technology to deliver results without the pain, and recovery time.
During the actual procedure, you may experience some form of discomfort but you shouldn’t feel any pain or have to deal with any form of recovery.
