Even though you can do quite a bit to protect your youthful appearance, practically everyone will struggle with the visible signs of aging at some point. Over the years, everything from environmental toxins to harsh beauty products will damage your skin and create blemishes such as fine lines and wrinkles. Ultherapy® is a popular treatment that improves the appearance of your skin by stimulating your body’s natural healing process. You should notice changes to your skin within just a few months of your first appointment, and the results can easily be preserved with regular follow-up treatments in Jacksonville and maintenance skin care treatments.
Where Did My Wrinkles Come From?
Many different elements contribute to the appearance of your skin, but most experts believe that sun damage is the biggest factor. That is why so many people develop fine lines and wrinkles on their hands, chest, and face. Protecting your skin with clothing and sunblock might keep those blemishes at bay for quite a few years. You can also preserve the appearance of your skin by sticking to a healthy diet and staying hydrated. Unfortunately, there will most likely come a point when those tactics no longer work.
Around a certain age, your body’s store of collagen will drop by one percent every year. Collagen is a natural protein that protects the outer layers of your epidermis and keeps your skin firm. As the collagen disappears, your skin is going to lose its elasticity. The primary goal of Ultherapy® is to trigger your body’s natural healing response so that your skin is flooded with collagen.
After years of exhaustive research, doctors discovered that ultrasonic waves could be used for much more than imaging. When the waves are set to a certain frequency and are used for skin care treatments, they will penetrate deep into the soft tissue just below your skin. Your body is then “tricked” into producing additional collagen and elastin. In the months following the treatment, your skin becomes healthier and more toned. Other cosmetic treatments can produce similar results, but many of them also have quite a few unwanted side effects.
Benefits of Ultherapy®
There are many different reasons why patients in Jacksonville are now choosing Ultherapy® over lifts, tucks, and injections. While those treatments are very effective, they might also be hard on your body. Even modern injectables can create an unnatural appearance, and the results rarely last for more than six months. Ultherapy® is a non-invasive procedure that requires absolutely no injections, incisions, or sutures. Other than mild redness and sensitivity, most of our patients rarely notice any unusual side effects. You can resume all of your normal daily activities immediately after your Ultherapy® appointment.
Ultherapy® treatments can naturally enhance your beauty and take years off your appearance. It is an excellent treatment option for patients who would like to erase lines and wrinkles without undergoing an invasive procedure. It can also be combined with other skin care treatments to address issues such as fat under the chin, frown lines, and sagging jowls.
