If you are a resident of the Flushing or surrounding area and are looking for a safe and effective way to look younger, you might want to look into the advantages of Ultherapy®. This treatment utilizes ultrasound energy to bring about positive results. Our specialist can explain in more detail how you could benefit from the therapy after evaluating your skin condition. There are a number of things about Ultherapy® that make it an attractive treatment option.
There are virtually no risks associated with going through Ultherapy® treatment sessions. In fact, you have likely been exposed to the same energy that is used in the therapy already. It is the same type of ultrasound energy that is used for imaging purposes. Ultrasounds are routinely done during pregnancy to monitor the development and health of the baby. They are done to check the function of critical organs like the heart at times.
Stimulates Collagen Growth
Ultherapy® is effective because it gently warms the lower layers of the skin. The warming effect will stimulate the growth of collagen, which will lead to tighter skin that is free from many of the unwanted lines and wrinkles.
As you age, your body will not produce as much collagen as it once did. Since it is the substance that keeps the skin tight, a reduction in its growth rate will cause the skin to loosen. This will cause lines and wrinkles to form. Ultherapy® works by stimulating the skin to tighten itself. Over the course of the following months, the collagen will have reached a level that is similar to what it was before age caused it to decline.
Ultherapy® provides an advantage that other treatment methods do not. Because ultrasound energy is used for imaging, the professional delivering the therapy can see what is happing on a computer screen. The practitioner can tell how deep into the skin the energy is going and can make the necessary adjustments immediately in order to make sure the therapy produces optimum results.
