Collagen and Your Skin Health

Collagen is a protein that gives skin its structure, resiliency, and strength. Smooth, youthful skin looks that way thanks to the presence of plenty of collagen. Over time, your body no longer produces as much collagen. This causes the skin to gradually take on a thinner and drier appearance, and it causes the skin to be more fragile. It is possible to boost your body’s production of collagen with the use of technology like Ultherapy. Consider visiting a doctor serving Mt. Kisco and the surrounding Westchester County, and asking whether Ultherapy could be right for you.

Ultherapy is an advanced skin treatment based on ultrasound technology. Your provider can apply the handheld applicator to your skin to emit ultrasound energy that penetrates the skin. This energy stimulates the production of collagen. During the next few months, you’ll see the treated skin become taut and more youthful-looking. Of course, Ultherapy can’t mimic the results of a surgical facelift, but it is worth trying if you’re interested in a “mini lift” without having to go through potentially risky surgery.
