Age is something that is more than just skin deep, but it does start with the skin. The older your skin looks, the older you will look as a whole. The problem is that reversing the signs of aging is seldom an easy task. Invasive surgeries, lengthy treatments and uncomfortable procedures are just a few of the things people face when they utilize traditional treatments designed to reverse the ravages of time on the skin.
The good news is that new treatments are emerging that makes reversing signs of aging less of a problem. Ultherapy® represents a new type of treatment that can effectively treat the signs of aging while sparing you many of the uncomfortable and inconvenient side effects that traditional treatments can bring.
What is Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® utilizes ultrasonic waves to transmit energy into the skin. These waves harmlessly pass through healthy and desirable skin cells, but they cause vibrations that create heat when they reach target cells. This results in the destruction of these cells, which sets the stage for the body to begin the repair and replacement process at a cellular level.
Why Does This Work?
Most people have more than an adequate regenerative ability within their body. The problem is that many dermatological problems, while undesirable on the surface, are accompanied by functional cells at a cellular level. This results in undesirable cells persisting within the body.
Sagging skin is an example of this at work. This skin may look unattractive and aged, but it still retains the defensive functions of skin. The body will not destroy these tissues unless the tissues themselves can be safely damaged in a controlled way.
Ultherapy® introduces a way to effectively destroy these cells. The lymphatic system can remove them, which allows for the body to begin replacing these cells with structures that are tighter, clearer and overall more healthy than the old cells.
Does It Treat Every Sign of Aging?
Ultherapy® can treat a variety of age-related signs and conditions. These include:
- Age spots
- Dull skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Moderately sagging skin
- Other skin conditions that are associated with age
The versatility of this treatment will coincide with the conditions being treated and the number of Ultherapy® sessions that you undergo. Deeper problems, such as those affecting the collagen layer of the skin, may require multiple treatments; age spots and other issues may only require one to two treatments. It all depends on the unique situation.
Is Ultherapy® Right for You?
Ultherapy® is a versatile treatment that is designed to be as safe as possible. It can effectively reverse many of the signs of aging, which can help you feel more confident about your appearance while giving yourself the edge you need in your life. These benefits come with the avoidance of scarring, inflammation and the other problems associated with traditional anti-aging treatments and procedures.
