Does Your Face and Neck Need a Lift?
- Posted on: Dec 8 2016
Ultherapy is the ONLY non-invasive treatment approved by the FDA for lifting the skin on the neck, chin and brow WITHOUT SURGERY! The technology uses ultrasound waves to heat the SMAS (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System), the muscle like layer of the tissue under the skin. When energy is delivered to this muscle layer, the tissues contract and tighten. This energy will also produce new collagen over the next several months after treatment. Collagen production is also stimulated on the lower levels of the skin which will result in tightening and lifting.
All patients can benefit from collagen stimulation as collagen is crucial to younger, plumper skin. Collagen production actually depletes after the age of 20! After that, a person produces about 1 % less collagen in the skin each year. Think of the protein collagen as a structural net that gives skin its support and elasticity. As production declines, the skin will appear thinner and more fragile.
Ultherapy effectively aids in the production of collagen over time, thereby helping skin appear more lifted and youthful.
