Ultherapy – Tighten, Tone, and Lift Skin
Non-invasive aesthetic procedures are on the rise with continued advancements in technology. Botox, fillers, laser treatments, and treatments such as CoolSculpting are all gaining popularity and becoming a part of the mainstream trends in aesthetic non-invasive medicine.
One particular, and eye catching treatment is that of Ultherapy. Ultherapy uses ultra sound to tighten the skin in the face and body. Ulthera can penetrate deep layers of the dermis and has the capability to lift and tighten loose skin to create a non-surgical facelift. The results can last anywhere from 1 year to 18 months.
The procedure takes about 30 to 60 minutes depending on the size of the area. Recovery, down time, and price are all contributing factors as to why there is such a surge of growth for these non-invasive treatments. Ulthera can even be done on your lunch-break. Patients should expect to experience redness or discomfort that typically subsides within about 24 hours. For those who want to tighten their skin without going under the knife, Ultherapy is an excellent option. When used in combination with injectable fillers, thread lifting, and fractionated laser and IPL treatments, a comprehensive rejuvenation can be accomplished, creating a balanced, more youthful, refreshed look with little downtime and no scarring. For a comprehensive evaluation to see if Ulthera is an appropriate treatment for you, contact the offices of Doctor Vallecillos to set up a consultation.
