Collagen and elastin loss are a common part of the natural aging process. As a result, our skin becomes thinner and less firm than the days of our youth. Fine lines, wrinkles, and lax skin are all a not-so-ideal part of getting older. The good news is, it is possible to reverse visible signs of aging with a simple, in-office visit.
Ultherapy is a non-surgical solution for men and women who’d like to smooth, tighten, and firm skin safely and effectively. The procedure uses gentle ultrasound wavelengths to stimulate the collagen-building process throughout the face and body. Naturally tighten skin without downtime. Let’s take a closer look at what results you can expect from Ultherapy sessions.
Some initial results can be seen in just a few days as collagen production is boosted. Skin will start to feel firmer and appear tighter. In most cases, patients can address mild to moderate skin laxity with one Ultherapy session. More severe concerns may require multiple treatments to get the results you want.
Results from Ultherapy are gradual and progressive. Enhanced collagen levels work to improve the skin from within over the course of 2-3 months. Based on your individual response to treatment, an optimal outcome can be achieved anywhere from 2-6 months following your final Ultherapy session.
How Long Will Results Last?
The amount of time Ultherapy results will last can vary from patient to patient. Ultherapy continues to boost long-term collagen production to deep tissue. However, the natural aging process may play a role in how long you’ll see visible improvements on a superficial level. Ultherapy typically has a high patient satisfaction rate of 1+ years.
Maintenance treatments can safely and effectively be performed as needed to prolong the outcome of your procedure. Your cosmetic dermatologist will customize a treatment plan to help maximize your results as long as possible.
