How Does Ultherapy Work?

Are you dissatisfied with the appearance of sagging skin around your face and neck? Do you want the results of a facelift without having to undergo invasive surgery? Consider having Ultherapy near Mt. Kisco and the surrounding Westchester County. Ultherapy, which may be available at a medical weight loss center near you, is a gentle way to restore the tissues underneath the skin and rejuvenate the appearance of your skin. Ultherapy can lift and tighten your skin to fight the effects of time and gravity. Setting up a consultation for Ultherapy is the perfect way to reward yourself for achieving healthy medical weight loss.

Ultrasound Technology

Ultherapy is a powerful tool that can deliver incredible results in just one treatment session. When you arrive at your appointment, the provider will apply a special conductive gel to your skin and then move the handheld “wand” over the treatment areas. This handheld device emits ultrasound energy to the foundational layer beneath the skin. It’s unlike lasers, radiofrequency energy, and other technologies in that the ultrasound energy completely bypasses the skin to deliver precise amounts of energy to specific depths at exactly the right temperature. When the ultrasound energy is delivered to the tissues, it triggers a regenerative process. The tissues begin to produce more collagen than they did before in a process known as neocollagenesis. To improve its precision delivery, the Ultherapy system includes ultrasound imaging. These real-time images allow the provider to see exactly where to deliver the ultrasound energy for the most effective treatment possible.

Collagen Structure

Collagen is essential for maintaining the skin’s elasticity. Your body naturally produces some collagen, but unfortunately, the skin loses this essential protein over time. Stress and poor diet can also interfere with the body’s natural production of collagen. With Ultherapy, the body can be stimulated to increase its production of collagen, which restores suppleness, moisture, and youthfulness to the skin. Specifically, collagen helps correct sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and dryness. Collagen can even improve overall skin tone and firmness, and Ultherapy is an effective way to boost the body’s ability to produce this important protein.
