Look Younger with Ultrasound
A revolutionary procedure called Ultherapy that uses ultrasound for skin improvement is making waves in the cosmetic industry. Today the most popular cosmetic surgeries are not even surgeries to begin with. There is a steady increase in the number of people opting for non-invasive procedures as they are much more affordable than surgeries. These procedures do not involve the knife. Wrinkle treatment and laser hair removal are some of the most common examples of non-invasive cosmetic procedures.
A look at Ultherapy
The machine used for this treatment is called Ultherapy. It acts on the deep layers of the skin, which are targeted during a surgical facelift, and works without harming the upper visible layers. Ultherapy can be used for soothing out fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, lifting your brow line, smoothing out crow’s feet and reducing droopy eyelids. It heats up the skin causing the tissues to tighten and become firm. Results are visible over the following two months as an increased amount of collagen is naturally produced. Increased collagen gives natural lift and enhances skin condition.
Ultrasound therapy is very effective in minimizing facial lines and smoothening out wrinkled skin. It can help you get rid of sagging cheeks. Other uses of the treatment include removing folds from mouth to jaw, nose to mouth and around the corners of the mouth. It is fast becoming a popular alternative to common wrinkle treatments and is offered by many beauty clinics and laser hair removal centers. The technology used in Ultherapy includes techniques that have been around for decades in medicine.
How it works
Ultherapy machine is a smooth applicator. When placed on your skin, it projects an image of your skin onto the screen. The machine then provides heat to the depths of your skin leaving the surface undisturbed. This is the only skin treatment that makes use of ultrasound. The fact that ultrasound has been around for decades ensures safety. It is FDA approved. This procedure requires no injections and the only sensation may be a warm, mildly prickly one, when the machine is passing over the skin.
Ultherapy procedure is similar to a popular treatment used for treating cellulite treatment using infrared light, radio-frequency and massage. The treatment has no downtime like most non-invasive procedures. There is a steady rise in the popularity of non-invasive procedure. Celebrities and extensive marketing and advertising campaigns are the main reasons for this.
