The signs of aging have a habit of sneaking up on you. It seems like one day you look in the mirror and see a youthful 25-year-old staring back at you. Then, what feels like the next day, you see someone who has aged 30 years; you are suddenly looking at someone who could easily be 55. Once upon a time, the only option available for fighting these early signs of aging, such as loose, crinkled skin, was a facelift. Not any more; today you have several non-surgical options to choose from, many which can signficantly improve the face you see reflected in the mirror.
For those of us mainly concerned about sagging skin and wrinkles, one treatment worth exploring further is cutting-edge Ulthera. The exciting part: Ulthera is noninvasive. The procedure can turn back the hands of time without surgery. Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique wants to help you find out if Ulthera is right for your anti-aging needs.
Ulthera is Non-Invasive:
For many generations, the only way to correct sagging facial skin was through a surgical procedure inwhich a cosmetic surgeon would lift and tighten skin through several incisions. A face lift can mean potential scarring, a lengthy recovery, and a big ticket.
Ulthera is a nonviasive treatment, approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for successfully tightening loose skin. That means there is no cutting and no blood. You won’t have to wait weeks or months for your incisions to heal. There is no worry about the appearance of scars, after the wounds have finally healed. Being non-invasive also means that you don’t have to worry about anesthesia during treatment, which has its own set of risks, as well.
Ulthera is Customizable:
One benefit of Ulthera is that the treatment is fully customizable. Originally, the treatment was approved by the FDA for lifting and tightening loose skin around the neck, chin and eyebrows. More recently, Ulthera was approved to treating wrinkles on the decolletage (upper chest).
Along with treatment for a variety of individual areas, your provider can further customize your Ultherapy procedure by deciding on the depth of treatment, determined by the level of correction needed. Additionally, Ulthera can be combined with other non-invasive treatments, such as Botox or dermal fillers, for a more complete facial rejuvenation. Before treatment, a surgeon will evaluate your skin and decide the best way to proceed.
Ulthera is Quick:
Ulthera is a fast treatment in three ways. First, you will be out of the office in no time. On average, an Ulthera treatment will take between 30 minutes and one hour to complete.
Secondly, you will be back on your feet quickly after an Ulthera procedure. There is no downtime required. If you have a busy life and can’t take a day off from work (like many of us), Ulthera is the perfect treaetment. Many people are ready to get back to their normal activities immediately after the treatment. You can even hit the gym right after an Ulthera treatment.
Keep in mind that although the Ulthera recovery is quick, you might have a bit of bruising or redness. Some people also describe mild tightness across the treated area during the first few days following an Ultherapy session. For the most part, any discomfort you feel will be limited to during the treatment itself; and there shouldn’t feel any pain afterwards.
Lastly, Ulthera is fast acting. You will probably see a subtle change in your appearance right after treatment. Then, as your body begins producing more and more collagen, you will see final results developing after about a three months. Although you have the option of having more than one Ulthera treatment, many people find that a single session is all they need to get the results they want.
Ulthera Looks Natural:
Everyone’s seen a facelift that has gone horribly wrong. With Ultherapy, there’s no risk of looking as though you have been caught in a wind tunnel. The results from Ulthera are subtle and natural, as your skin will slowly tighten over time. Along with enjoying organic-looking results, you do not have to worry about scars after an Ulthera session.
Of course, Ulthera isn’t for everyone. The benefits of Ultherapy will depend on the amount of skin laxity you have. Usually, people between the ages of 35 and 55 benefit from it the most, but people of any age can see an improvement in their appearance with Ulthera.
