The aging process affects us all, but there’s no need to be dismayed. If you’ve begun to notice some of the signs of aging, don’t worry! We at Allure Enhancement Center in Lafayette, LA, offer an innovative anti-aging treatment that’s been called the non-surgical facelift; Ultherapy. If you want to combat the visible signs of aging, but aren’t ready to commit to an invasive procedure, this wonder treatment may well be the right fit for you.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
While it is not the same as a surgical facelift, Ultherapy delivers results that are similar to those of a facelift: tighter, lifted, and younger-looking skin. It works by using ultrasound energy to force the body to contract existing collagen in the deepest layers of the skin.
Not only does it tighten collagen, but it also helps the body produce more collagen and elastin to help reverse some of the more noticeable signs of aging. Natural and scientific principles are used in this treatment to heal and rejuvenate the skin from the inside out.
Perfect for Those Who Don’t Want Surgery
One of the benefits of Ultherapy is that it is a completely non-surgical treatment. There is no cutting or invasive procedure involved; the entire procedure is performed without ever having to insert a needle or device under the skin.
Harnesses the Power of Ultrasound Energy
Ultrasound energy is a type of sound energy. You may be familiar with ultrasound energy if you’ve been pregnant as you will have had ultrasounds during your prenatal visits, but that’s not the end of its uses. In the cosmetic world, ultrasound energy is used to restore youthfulness to your skin. As the sound waves travel into the deeper layers of the skin, they will be effective in helping your body to fight back against the signs of aging.
The applicator itself has a digital imaging screen attached to it, so when it touches your skin, a thermal image of your skin appears on the screen and your technician may move the handpiece accordingly. Consequently, the ultrasound energy will be delivered accordingly to target your specific areas of concern.
Treats Many Different Areas
There is a lot to know about skin laxity. It occurs when the body begins to produce less collagen and elastin, resulting in a loss of skin structure and the appearance of the skin looking sagging and drooping. Although most people begin to notice this obvious sign of aging as soon as it affects their complexion, it can also affect other parts of the body.
This innovative treatment can be used not only on the face but also on the body, in order to address skin laxity. The neck, chest, jawline, eyebrows, and cheeks are the most common treatment areas.
What Happens During the Appointment?
We’ll schedule your treatment after we confirm that you are a good candidate. It is common for patients to only need one treatment to achieve their desired results; others may need a few, depending on the condition of the area they wish to treat and how many areas they wish to treat. When you come into the office for your treatment, we’ll take you to a comfortable and private treatment room. Depending on your needs and preferences, we may apply a topical numbing solution to your skin, though this is not typically a treatment that involves any discomfort.
Your technician will apply ultrasound gel to your treatment area before beginning the actual treatment process so that the device can make contact with your skin and transmit the digital image. A warm, tingling sensation will be felt as the device makes contact with your skin during the treatment. When the image appears, your technician will be able to view the deeper layers of your skin and treat them accordingly.
Using ultrasound technology, the technician can target the areas which have lost the most collagen over time. It can be tailored to meet your exact needs thanks to the digital imaging, which makes this treatment so effective. In addition to delivering extra energy to specific areas, your technician can spend more time on those areas where you want the most skin rejuvenation and collagen and elastin production.
When Will I See the Results?
Patients may notice immediate results, partly as a result of the ultrasound energy contracting the collagen beneath the skin’s surface. Those who notice immediate results feel that their skin appears healthier, tighter, and lifted.
If you don’t see much immediate change, this should not be cause for concern. While you may see some results immediately after your treatment, the best and most noticeable results will appear several weeks later, once your body begins to create more collagen, and the effects of that process become more visible.
It Takes Time To Produce New Collagen
Collagen takes time to grow; it does not grow quickly. When it happens, however, your skin will show some striking changes. You’ll see improved skin elasticity, along with fewer wrinkles, lines, and facial folds. Although you won’t get the same results as if you got a facelift, your skin will look and feel tighter and firmer. You can have the next best thing; a rejuvenated face and improved skin without ever having to undergo a surgical procedure.
You May Want To Schedule Maintenance Treatments
You won’t need multiple treatments to achieve your desired results; you will get long-lasting results from just one treatment. However, Ultherapy cannot halt the passage of time, and eventually, the aging process will begin to affect your skin. When that happens, don’t be discouraged. Instead, just opt to schedule another treatment in order to increase your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin.
What Are the Benefits?
Ultherapy is a non-surgical procedure that provides many benefits. This treatment encourages collagen production, a process called neocollagenesis, which fights aging and improves skin. Patients are increasingly turning to this innovative treatment to enhance their appearance, increase their confidence and achieve visible and noticeable results.
There’s No Downtime
Downtime is necessary for surgical procedures and even many minimally invasive treatments. But, no downtime is required when you schedule an Ultherapy treatment. No time off work or rearranging your schedule will be required to accommodate your treatment or post-care directives. Rather, you will be able to return to daily life once your treatment is over.
It Encourages Your Body’s Natural Processes
The process of neocollagenesis is a natural and effective way to heal and rejuvenate the skin from the inside out. If you’re concerned about how specific anti-aging skincare treatments and procedures may affect your body or your skin, this one is perfect for you because it is totally natural. It stimulates your body’s production of new collagen by using ultrasound energy. As a result, you will look softer and younger.
It Really Works
Ultherapy delivers effective results to all patients. While for many the results will appear gradually, they are sure to be noticeable and visible. The procedure will help you get rid of the signs of aging that have been making you feel less confident or discouraged about your appearance. As soon as they begin noticing some of the visible signs of aging on their faces and bodies, most patients begin investing in new skincare products, but often skincare is not enough.
To improve the appearance of your skin at the deepest level, you need something that forces your body to produce new collagen. Luckily, this treatment will do just that.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
This procedure allows men and women who are unhappy with the effects of aging on their skin to lift and tighten loose skin without ever having to undergo an invasive procedure. Some patients have visible skin laxity, while others desire to get ahead of the aging process. Even if their wrinkles and lines aren’t very obvious, they still see them when they look in the mirror and want to reverse them.
You should consider this procedure if you want to combat aging without undergoing a surgical procedure. Furthermore, the best candidates will have realistic expectations about the procedure, their potential outcome, and the limits to what it can accomplish. Pregnant women will not be eligible for this treatment unless they have been cleared by their doctor.
