Lift, Tone and Tighten Your Skin with Non-Surgical Ultherapyin Rockford, IL


A definite sign of aging is sagging skin along the jaw and on the neck. Many adults also experience folding on the forehead and around the eyelids. Lift surgery can have varying results because of the specific density and thickness of a person's skin.
A great method for smoothing out these creases and folds is to stimulate new collagen production. Heating of the subdermal tissues where collagen is produced in the fibrous membranes and support tissue is an effective way to enhance the production of collagen.
Ultherapy is a rather new technique that uses ultrasound energy to heat the tissue and stimulate the production of collagen. It also helps to strengthen the support tissues beneath the skin.
What the Procedure Involves
At PryorHealth, before recommending Ultherapy for our client, we perform an examination of the face and note where sagging occurs. We determine if this folding and creasing are being caused by excess fatty tissue or because of a poor skin support system.
Ultherapy can tighten these problem areas by adding volume in the form of tissue growth and collagen.
The targeted areas are mapped out, and a soothing gel is applied to the skin. The instrument used is a handpiece with a smooth, flat-edged tip.
The device is placed directly on the skin, and the ultrasound energy is delivered through the skin to the tissue that lies beneath. The skin itself is not heated at all.
The energy is absorbed by the fibrous tissue below the skin. The effect of the instrument's heat delivery is not reported to be uncomfortable.
What Patients Should Know
After the treatment is complete, some minor flushing of the skin may be apparent, but this usually goes away after several hours. Some numbness in the treated areas is also to be expected. However, the client can resume normal activities at once.
In most cases, a single treatment session is all that is required for the body to respond by building up new tissue and increasing the amount of collagen beneath the skin.
The full results may take about one or two months, after which the tightened, firmer skin will be apparent for up to one year.
Advantages Over Other Treatments
Many of the skin rejuvenation treatments performed today involve surgery or abrasive resurfacing. Some individuals are wary of face lifts.
On the other hand, Ultherapy is non-surgical, non-invasive and is effective for all skin types because it doesn't target the skin directly.
