San Diego Cosmetic Laser Clinic now offers Ultherapy as its latest non-surgical facelift procedure. As women age, many experience loss of elasticity in the skin, causing their face to sag and stretch. Prior to current technologies, a surgical facelift was one of the only options for tightening and lifting the brow line, chin, neck and chest.
With Ultherapy, women (and men) across the world are experiencing a renewed sense of youth and beauty with an FDA-approved “lunch time” procedure that requires no knives, sutures or extensive recovery. As an added bonus, the lift improves the skin’s appearance to reduce wrinkles similar to the effects of Botox and other skin rejuvenation methods.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
The practice utilizes ultrasound technology – the same procedure that’s been trusted by the medical industry for decades. Where other procedures rely on lasers or radio frequencies, Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to pinpoint three layers beneath the skin’s surface wherever problem areas exist.
Afterward, the skin naturally responds to stimulation by producing collagen, the protein responsible for healthy skin and tissue. The result is new, firmer, lifted skin.
What Can I Expect?
After an application of gel, clients will feel a sensation on the skin similar to a “blast” of pressure. It is not typically painful; rather, it has the tendency to feel slightly uncomfortable. In fact, most clients report having felt more nervous about the anticipation of pain than actual pain.
Clients may experience slight swelling, tenderness, or irritation in the days to follow with optimal results occurring four to 12 weeks after their session.
San Diego Laser Clinic recommends a round of Fraxel after every Ultherapy treatment to reinforce the effects of new collagen for a more vibrant appearance. It will also smooth the skin to help offset any side effects of Ultherapy and enhance the look and feel of the treated areas.
Most clients need only one Ultherapy session, making Fraxel a quick and ideal follow-up to bring about optimal results.
