Looking and feeling good are virtues that you believe in and want to uphold well into old age. While you are one to work out and keep your body in shape, you have some areas that you know need some work. It is not a problem for you to target areas in your fitness routine. What is difficult is that you have started to notice that your neck is beginning to show the typical signs of aging. Looser skin has started to give you that premature wrinkling look that you feel is robbing you of your youthful beauty. If only adding an extra lap around the block each evening would restore your neck back to how it used to look; unfortunately, that is not a viable solution. However, you recently heard about a great cosmetic treatment called Ultherapy® and you’re wondering if it can help you.
How Does Ultherapy® Work?
A lot of cosmetic treatments for the skin today utilize the power of lasers to make changes that range from the subtle to the dramatic, but Ultherapy® does not utilize the power of a cosmetic laser treatment. Although, despite not being a laser treatment, it does happen to work in a somewhat similar fashion.
During this treatment, ultrasound energy is used to transfer energy deep into the second muscle layer under the skin. The dermis layer is where you find all the interesting specialized cellular structures. By heating up this deep layer under the skin, the body begins a process of reacting to the stimulus of this ultrasound energy. Over time, the body starts to produce collagen. This collagen production encourages the effect of filling in this deep layer and pushes the muscles up in a lifting fashion. As a result, this helps the neck not only to experience some lifting, but the skin also becomes tauter in the neck region. It is here that that youthful, tighter-looking skin starts to shine through again.
What is interesting about this process is that the full benefits of Ultherapy® are not fully recognized until at least a few months after the procedure. This is because the body keeps producing collagen, and this will continue to add to the desired effect.
The great part about Ultherapy® is that there is no cutting or puncturing of the skin involved in this cosmetic approach. The only thing that penetrates your skin is the ultrasound energy that is responsible for promoting collagen production. This means you will be up and around immediately after the procedure.
Ultherapy® treatments are entirely non-surgical and convenient. To learn more, schedule a consultation at Laser Skin Solutions Jacksonville. Contact us today to book your appointment at our office in Jacksonville Beach!
