Benefits of Ultherapy
Ultherapy treatment uses ultrasound waves to penetrate your skin deeply and rejuvenate it by boosting collagen synthesis. Collagen is a skin tightening protein and reduces its laxity that often comes with age or undue stretch.
Of course, Ultherapy is not the only procedure around. Since decades, the gynecologists have been recommending surgical procedures to get rid of sagginess of your belly. However, there are some excellent points that set Ultherapy apart from the rest of the techniques. This article will discuss in detail the benefits of Ultherapy Treatment.
Ultherapy Treatment is Non-Invasive
Ultherapy is a non-invasive and painless treatment procedure and only takes 30-60 minutes. Compared to other options like face lift etc. it doesn’t require a surgical incision. A handpiece, same that is used while taking an ultrasound, is used to direct ultrasound waves in your skin from different focal points.
The waves reach up to the dermis and deeper layers and stimulate the collagen production. They generate heat in your skin layers which breaks the bond between collagen chains and shorten them. There is no scar to deal with after the treatment. No surgical instruments are involved so the risk of contamination is also minimal.
It Can be Customized According to Needs of Patient
The frequency and depth of ultrasound waves can be adjusted. Usually, the frequency used is 4 to 10MHz. If your skin is sun-damaged and extensive treatment is required, the frequency is modulated accordingly. Usually, the temperature used to break collagen bonds goes up to 60 degrees. However, it can be varied according to the condition of the skin.
The duration of the Ultherapy procedure is also alterable which gives an opportunity to customize the Ultherapy treatment according to the needs of the patient.
It can also be used in conjunction with other procedures like Botox etc. for obtaining better results.
Ultherapy Treatment Offers Minimal Healing Time
The healing time of Ultherapy treatment is less because there is no scar involved. The skin can get flushed or edematous but it recovers speedily. Mild bruising may appear at focal points of skin but they recover within few hours. You don’t need any off time from work for its recovery. Since there are no instruments involved, the risk of infection is also minimal which ensures that healing doesn’t stall.
Smoking, alcohol, and obesity (results are better in patients with BMI≤30) can increase the healing time after ultherapy treatment procedure so, steer clear of these.
It Uses Your Body’s Natural Responses
The excellent fact about Ultherapy treatment is that it works by using your body’s natural response. It does not use synthetic chemicals (like those used in Botox). The ultrasound waves generate heat deep in your skin which breaks the bonds between collagen and coagulates it at various points. This leads to shortening of a chain of collagen. Your body responds to this destruction by an inflammatory mechanism in an attempt to clear up the damage. This compensatory response boosts collagen production. It also regenerates damaged tissues and rejuvenates your skin.
Long Lasting Results of Ultherapy Treatment
Since Ultherapy treatment takes a natural course to repair your skin, immediate results are not maximal. Collagen synthesis takes time so, results appear gradually.
The best results come after two to three months. This sounds like a setback but actually, it proves to be beneficial in case of Ultherapy treatment. In comparison with Botox, which needs to be done again after a few months, you can rely on Ultherapy to last for a longer time.
Ultherapy Side Effects?
Ultherapy is a largely safe procedure, approved by FDA, and does not cause major side effects. There may appear minor issues for some time.
- Redness and swelling of that area may occur immediately after the treatment but they resolve after a few hours.
- Mild bruising due to soft tissue injury may occur but it fades within 2 hours
- Although you experience mild discomfort or pain, it resolves in 24 hours
- The procedure should not be done if there is an open wound in the targeted area
- It is contraindicated in pregnant and lactating mothers
Ultherapy vs Thermage
Thermage focuses on treating wrinkles on the face and in the under eye area and on improving wrinkles and bulges on the body. Ultherapy is the only non-surgical treatment that’s been approved by the FDA specifically for tightening the skin on the neck and chin and in the brow area. We offer Ultherapy in our state of the art downtown Brooklyn facility.
Ultherapy uses ultrasound beams to deliver focused energy without causing peripheral tissue damage. In our center we only use FDA cleared HIFU devices. Significant amounts of research have been done on the ultherapy technology in order for it to receive its FDA approval. We have seen excellent results with the ultherapy in our Brooklyn NYC clinic.
