Can you imagine getting some of the results of a facelift without having to undergo any type of surgery? At Finesse Cosmetic Surgery in Waltham, we offer Ultherapy® to patients that want some of the benefits of a facelift without the scalpel.
A Closer Look at Ultherapy®
Collagen exists in 80% of the body. This protein lives in the skin’s dermis layer and is responsible for holding your body together. It also strengthens the skin and gives it the ability to “snap back” when stretched. This is an ultrasound treatment that awakens your body’s collagen to strengthen your skin. It improves its elasticity for a fresher, healthier-looking you! The Ultherapy® procedure is a US FDA-approved procedure that has been approved to:
• Lift skin on the neck, under the chin, and around the eyebrows.
• Improve lines and wrinkles on the decolletage area.
How Does Ultherapy® Work?
Like a traditional facelift, this procedure treats the dermis. Unlike a standard facelift procedure, however, Ultherapy® treats the dermal layer without disrupting the epidermal layer of your skin.
Ultherapy® is unique from other cosmetic treatments because it uses ultrasound therapy to deliver the ultrasonic energy at the right layer and temperature to stimulate the body’s natural regenerative process. The treatment encourages your body’s collagen production system to reverse the signs of aging.
How Long Do the Results Last?
You may notice some positive effects right after the treatment; however, over the following months, you will see tightening. The wrinkles and lines will also appear noticeably smoother. The lasting results are based on how each individual’s body produces collagen and ages. This procedure combats signs of aging, but it does not stop your body from aging.
