Ultherapy is a non-surgical and minimally invasive surgery way to lift the loose skin. Under chin, neck and eyebrows are the most affected areas on the face where people wish to get the skin tightened.
How does the Therapy Procedure Work?
An ultherapy is very similar to an ultrasound. A smooth device known as an applicator is placed on the skin, and it projects an image that is monitored on the screen. This helps the surgeon to decide the areas that require the energy to be sent. The same device delivers focused heat of low energy levels at the proper depth under the skin to attain positive effects. This process does not disturb the outer levels of the skin. The skin responds to the energy given by stimulating the new growth of collagen. After repetitive sessions the skin starts getting tightened and firm that results in a noticeable lift in the skin after a period.
How is Ultherapy different from Other Cosmetic Procedures?
Ultherapy is a minimally invasive non-surgical method that makes use of ultrasound that targets the areas of the skin that need to be tightened and then the surgeon addresses the further procedures. The ultrasound treatment allows us to see what areas are treated, to allow the energy delivered precisely where it will turn out to be most productive.
How does it Feel?
The level of comfort varies from individual to individual. Yes, the process of delivering energy causes a little discomfort, which lasts only for some time. This discomfort is a signal that intimates that the process of collagen building has been initiated. Doctors make sure that you face the least discomfort by prescribing suitable premedications.
What to expect?
People consider surgeries as the ones that require long recovery time, bed rest and post medication, but Ultherapy is different. You can return to your normal routine and perform your daily activities right after the session, and the best part is you do not even have to take any preventive measures. Though you may notice some redness and your skin may look little flushed immediately after the procedure but, it disappears after sometime. You will feel swelling for a few days after the session with little tingling that may stay for few weeks after the surgery, but they are very tender and temporary issues. If you notice any bruising or numbness in the treated areas, consult the surgeon he will review and prescribe the right medication.
