Have you noticed changes to the way your skin looks? Are you missing the way it felt when you were younger? At Columbus Facial Plastics at The Sullivan Centre in Columbus, OH, our Ultherapy treatments could be exactly the solution that you need.
How Many Sessions of Ultherapy Do You Need?
There are lots of benefits to aging. You get more experience and wisdom as you go through more life experiences. But there’s no denying that there are some unwanted side effects to aging as well. One of the biggest downsides to aging is a change in the way your skin looks and feels.
You might notice more wrinkles and sagging on your face, which can make you look older than you are. If you’re looking for a lasting solution to this issue, then you might want to consider Ultherapy. This is a highly effective way to get back the younger-looking skin you’ve been missing. And one of the best things about it is that most patients need just one session to see the result they want, with only annual maintenance sessions necessary after that.
What Makes Our Skin Change?
The first step to understanding how this type of therapy works is to understand why your skin changes in the first place. Our skin is made up of several chemicals. These chemicals help your skin maintain its structure and fullness.
But as we get older, the natural levels of their chemicals in our skin begin to change. We have less and less of them which means that your skin’s structural integrity is weakened. That results in wrinkles and sagging occurring.
What Exactly Is Ultherapy?
You’re probably familiar with the basic idea of ultrasound technology. This treatment uses this technology to deliver energy to the areas of your face and upper body that you’re looking to target. Unlike other treatment options that only work on the surface layers of your skin, ultrasound technology penetrates to the deeper layers for even more effective results.
When the applicator is used on your skin, the skin will begin to heat up. This heat will cause your body to produce more collagen, which is an important protein that helps your skin retain its structure as well as its elasticity.
What Areas Can You Target?
Are you wondering if this treatment is right for you? There are various areas of your face as well as your upper body that can reap the benefits from receiving this treatment.
If you have any of the following concerns, then you might want to book a consultation with us to see if you’re a good candidate for this treatment.
Have you noticed that your cheeks look thinner and less defined as you’ve gotten older? This is a very common sign of aging. While your cheeks may have been plump and round while you were young, age and a loss of important chemicals in the area can result in them thinning and looking hollow.
This treatment is a great way to put that volume back into your cheeks, making them look fuller and rounder. It can also help to provide your cheekbones with a little more definition, which can help to change your appearance drastically and give you a much more youthful appearance overall.
When your cheeks get thinner, this is partially due to a loss of collagen and elastin in your skin. These proteins are what help your skin to maintain its texture, elasticity, and overall structure. But as you lose these proteins, your cheeks won’t just look thinner. Gravity will also take a firmer hold of your skin, pulling it down.
This can result in jowls forming. This probably isn’t something that you’re going to appreciate. The good news is that you can use this treatment to target your jowls. By stimulating the production of more collagen, your skin will begin firmer and start to lift, decreasing the appearance of your jowls.
Another area where you’re likely to see some significant signs of aging is the eyebrow area. You might notice some hollowness or sagging around your temples. You might also find that your eyebrows start sitting lower on your face, which can make you look angry or concerned.
If you’d like to help lift your eyebrows and provide yourself with a younger, healthier appearance, then this treatment could be exactly the solution you’re looking for. Offering an excellent alternative to an eyebrows lift, it will firm up and tighten the skin for a more relaxed, youthful look.
Your chin is one of the places where volume loss can be extremely prominent. You might have noticed that aging has made your chin look smaller and weaker. There could be wrinkles forming around your chin area, and you might even find that the skin is starting to sag.
You might not appreciate how these changes in your skin are making you look. If you’d like an effective solution to this issue, then you might want to look into this treatment option. It can provide more firmness and volume to your chin, which can also help make your jawbone appear more defined.
Your face isn’t the only area where you’re going to see signs of aging. While your face is one of the most prominent places where you’ll notice these signs, they occur all over your body. One place where you might notice this is your neck.
As the skin on your neck loses volume and elasticity, this causes your neck to sag. Many people refer to this unflatteringly as “turkey neck.” If you’d like to reduce the amount of sagging you’re seeing on your neck, you can use this treatment as a highly effective way of firming the skin.
Your chest area, also called your decolletage, is another area where you’re likely to see some changes in the texture and appearance of your skin. As your skin loses volume and begins to weaken, the skin in this area will sag and wrinkle just as it does on your face and neck.
If you want your overall appearance to look younger, it’s important to focus on areas like your decolletage as well as your face. One thing that makes this treatment so unique is that it can be effectively used on this area.
Is Ultherapy Safe?
When it comes to considering any type of cosmetic treatment, safety is usually the main concern. There are plenty of treatment options out there that can provide you with a younger appearance, but some of them carry certain safety risks that are important to consider.
Ultrasound technology has been used for centuries, and this treatment can provide you with an extremely safe way to get the youthful appearance that you’ve been missing. Not only can you trust that you’re getting highly effective results, but you can also count on a treatment option that’s safe for almost anyone.
How Long Does It Last?
This treatment can provide you with an effective way to help your skin look and feel younger. There are lots of other treatment options that can do this for you, like dermal fillers, but these treatment options may not last as long as you’d like them to.
If you’re looking for something that’s going to be safe as well as last you a long time, this therapy is for you. While you should bear in mind that everyone’s skin reacts differently, most people are able to enjoy their results for up to a year before needing to return for maintenance treatments.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Are you wondering if this treatment could be right for you? Because this treatment is non-invasive and safe, almost anyone can be a good candidate to receive it. If you have any of the above concerns and are looking for an effective solution, you could be a perfect candidate.
When you receive your treatment at our clinic, we’ll sit down for a consultation with you. This will help us determine what your specific needs are and whether this type of treatment is right for your concerns.
