We all know all about skin tightening and the inevitable loss of collagen that happens as we age. Many factors contribute to the breakdown of our precious proteins (collagen and elastin), including time (natural aging), the sun, free radical damage, and UVA damage: it all leads to sagging skin and a loss of elasticity, but at the core of this is a loss of collagen.
Sadly, there is a 7% reduction in skin thickness every ten years.
Ultherapy uses UltraSound technology to help rebuild collagen. By this point, you’ve read about it, and you know what it is. But did you know that a lighter version of Ultherapy is being utilized? It takes less time, hurts less, and costs less. Convinced yet?
The treatment is done on the same machine, the Ultherapy, using a custom facial mapping protocol. The ultrasound energy is focused more on the superficial layers, versus traditional Ultherapy which goes much deeper. This helps build up collagen levels and combats early signs of skin laxity, like loss of firmness and elasticity, while tightening the skin, reducing overall pore size, softening fine lines and smoothing texture.
