No matter how much sunscreen you wear and how many anti-aging products you apply, the truth is that time WILL take a toll on your skin – not only in the form of wrinkles and discoloration, but also in the resiliency of the skin. What may have been an apple shape one day can end up pear-shaped as gravity takes hold. If you’re looking for options for turning back the hands of time, Ultherapy is a great one, especially if you want to avoid the invasiveness of a face lift. Check out this list of five things you should know about Tampa Ultherapy.
It isn’t a face lift. The most effective way to counteract the effects of aging is with a face lift. However, this procedure is not only costly, it’s also very invasive and requires significant recovery time. With Ultherapy, there is no surgery involved whatsoever. This treatment uses time tested ultrasound technology and the body’s own natural healing process to lift your skin and give you a more youthful appearance.
It’s FDA-cleared. Ultherapy® is actually the only FDA-approved non-surgical procedure for lifting and tightening the skin on the neck, face, eyebrows and décolleté.
It relies on your body’s natural healing process. Ultherapy® lifts and tightens the skin by using your body’s own natural healing process, stimulating the support layers below the surface of the skin and helping your body to produce fresh collagen.
Virtually no recovery time. Since Ultherapy® uses non-invasive ultrasound technology, the recovery time is virtually nonexistent. The level of discomfort during the procedure varies from patient to patient, however it only lasts while the treatment is given. Some patients experience redness that lasts a few hours or tenderness that may last up to a few weeks. However, this is nothing to worry about. The tenderness is comparable to the tenderness you may feel after having exercised a muscle.
Ultherapy is not a laser. While we do offer many laser treatment options, Ultherapy® is not one of them. Ultherapy® uses ultrasound technology to penetrate deep within the skin tissue to lift and tighten non-invasively. It never disturbs the surface of the skin so you won’t have any marks or scarring.
