If you have sagging facial skin, but you’re not up for surgery, you’ve probably asked yourself this question, – How can I tighten the skin on my face without surgery. You’ll be happy to find out that non-invasive skin tightening is a very popular alternative to surgery.
The aging skin
Skin loses its firmness and starts to sag over time, and while this may be due to several reasons, the loss of collagen is a key factor. The decline in collagen occurs naturally with age, and it causes the skin to become thinner, and less elastic. Although a facelift has long been considered the most effective way to dramatically tighten the skin, Ultherapy is a non-invasive solution that produces very impressive skin tightening results.
Non-invasive skin tightening
Non-invasive skin tightening generally involves the use of targeted energy to heat the deep dermal layers of the skin. This jump-starts the skin’s repair process, and generates collagen production.
How Ultherapy works to tighten the skin
Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to tighten the skin and provide a slight lifting effect. The focused ultrasound energy penetrates down to the foundation layers in the skin, which is the same area that surgeons target during a surgical facelift. This stimulates the production of collagen, and tones and tightens the skin over time.
Ultherapy is appropriate for people with mild to moderate sagging skin. There is no downtime after the procedure, and the results typically last for about 12 months.
