Tightening your skin can dramatically improve your appearance. Eliminating loose, sagging skin on your neck, brow, and other areas of your body can make you look much younger and more attractive. Even better, you don’t have to receive an invasive procedure to improve your sagging skin. At Gold Skin Care Center in Nashville, Tennessee, we can firm and tighten your skin in a non-invasive manner with Ultherapy. Read on to learn how this fantastic treatment can help you.
Where Can Ultherapy Be Used?
As you go through life, your skin becomes increasingly vulnerable to gravity. As a result, you are likely to develop areas of loose skin on your body. Fortunately, Ultherapy can tighten and lift the skin on many different locations.
This non-invasive treatment can lift the skin on your brow, under your chin, and on your neck. Since these areas of your body are very prominent and visible, changing the appearance of these features can dramatically improve your look. You are likely to be thrilled by how youthful and attractive you look after you receive this treatment.
How Does This Treatment Tighten My Skin?
This innovative treatment uses the healing power of your body to create significant, lasting changes in the appearance of your skin.
Collagen is a naturally-occurring protein that helps your skin stay toned and firm. When you are young, you usually have ample amounts of this protein in your body. As a result, your skin is strong and tight.
As you become older, your collagen production decreases. Your skin becomes less able to resist the effects of gravity. Over time, your skin can loosen and sag. You may also develop wrinkles on your chest and other areas of your body.
The Power of Ultrasound
This cosmetic treatment uses an innovative process to combat the damaging effects of age. During your treatment, we will administer ultrasound energy to your target area. This focused energy makes a thermal effect underneath the surface of your skin.
This effect prompts your body to make additional collagen and to strengthen the collagen that already exists in your target area. Over time, your skin will become tighter and firmer so you look more youthful and attractive.
A Non-Invasive Method
Ultrasound energy can bypass the surface of your skin and penetrate your deeper tissues. As a result, we will not make incisions in your skin during your treatment session. Further, you shouldn’t need to receive general anesthesia or visit the hospital during your treatment. As a result, this is generally a quick, easy treatment that has minimal to no downtime.
How Will I Begin the Treatment Process?
You can begin your treatment by having an initial consultation with us. During this meeting, we will give you more details about our range of skin tightening treatments. At this point, you can examine before and after photographs from people who have received these treatments. We will also answer your questions about our skin tightening methods.
We will analyze the skin on your target area and talk about your overall health. We will determine whether you can receive this ultrasound treatment. If you are a suitable candidate, we will tell you how to prepare for your appointment.
What Will My Appointment Be Like?
This is a quick, out-patient treatment that is usually very easy on your body. Your treatment will usually take about an hour.
You may feel a temporary sensation as we administer the ultrasound energy to your target area. This feeling lets you know that your body has begun to build additional collagen.
Further, we have adopted an upgrade to the treatment called “Ultherapy Amplify.” This update will help you stay comfortable during the treatment process. As a result, you should feel relaxed and at ease during your appointment.
A Personalized Technique
We will use ultrasound imaging to analyze your tissues during the treatment process. These images will help us transmit the ultrasound energy in a precise, efficient manner.
How Long Will My Recovery Period Be?
If you’re a busy person who doesn’t have time to interrupt their usual schedule, you’re in luck. This non-invasive treatment usually has minimal to no downtime. Instead of spending days or weeks recovering from your appointment, you should be able to return to your typical routine right away.
When Will I See Positive Changes in My Skin?
This treatment tightens your skin by improving your body’s production of collagen. Since this process takes some time to accomplish, you might not see changes in your skin immediately after you receive your treatment. Instead, your skin may tighten and firm during the next three to six months.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
This fantastic treatment is very efficient and effective. As a result, you are likely to see significant changes in your skin after one treatment. That said, your results will vary depending on the condition of your skin, your body’s response to this treatment, and other factors. Accordingly, you may need to receive a series of treatments to achieve your desired outcome.
How Long Does This Treatment Last?
This treatment can improve your skin for a significant period of time. Although your individual results will vary, you might still have fresh, new collagen about a year after you received your treatment. This increased collagen can help your skin remain firm and tight.
Maintaining Your Benefits
Your skin will age after you receive this treatment, and your collagen levels will continue to decline in the future. Accordingly, you may want to receive maintenance treatments to combat the effects of age and preserve your youthful look. Since your body is unique, you might age more or less quickly than your peers. As a result, your maintenance schedule will be personalized to fit your individual needs.
Is This Treatment Safe?
The FDA has approved this treatment for the purposes of lifting the skin on multiple areas of your body. Clinical studies have shown that this treatment has a good safety profile. Further, medical providers have performed over 100,000 of these treatments on people all around the world.
Will My Results Look Natural?
One of the main benefits of this treatment is how it can enhance your skin in a natural-looking, subtle manner. This technique improves your skin by increasing your body’s collagen production over a period of several months. As a result, the changes in your appearance are slow and steady.
People might think that you’ve adopted a new skincare regime or lifestyle change. Accordingly, your friends, family, and other acquaintances may not realize that you’ve had a cosmetic treatment.
Can Men Receive This Treatment?
Like women, men are more likely to experience skin issues as they age. As their natural levels of collagen decrease, men can also develop sagging skin on their brows, necks, and other areas of their bodies. These changes can make men look upset, tired, or angry.
Fortunately, this fantastic technique works on both men and women. Many men have used ultrasound energy to tighten and renew their skin. This non-invasive method can be an ideal choice for a man who is looking for an easy way to enhance his skin.
What Other Treatments Can I Use to Tighten My Skin?
