When we get to a certain age, we start to notice our little imperfections. Fine lines around the mouth and sagging skin are just a couple examples of what we see when we look in the mirror every morning. Luckily, these things can be fixed! Ultherapy, offered here at ANU Medical Spa in New Jersey, could be the answer to your wrinkled features.
What is Ultherapy
Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved procedure of its kind to lift and tighten skin in the hard-to-treat areas of the brow, neck, chin, and décolletage without surgery! It’s basically a nonsurgical alternative to a facelift. Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin in your skin. For over 50 years, ultrasound has been safely used in the field of medicine. The treatment incorporates this traditional ultrasound imaging, allowing for clear visibility of the tissue layers being treated. Going beyond the skin’s surface, Ultherapy® administers the correct amount of ultrasound energy at the appropriate temperature. The ultrasonic energy from the procedure causes a natural reaction in the skin, which kick starts the regeneration of new collagen. Bye bye wrinkles!
Misconceptions about Ultherapy
With a quick search on Google, you might find some bad reviews about ultherapy. That it hurts or doesn’t work. In any case, the doctor administering your Ultherapy should be aware of your pain tolerance and be able to adjust the depth levels to one that you are comfortable with. As for the treatment not working, it takes time for new collagen to appear. Most of the time results will not be seen for about two or three months. When looking for a doctor or medical spa in New Jersey for Ultherapy treatments, it’s important to do your research and make sure that you’re getting the official Ultherapy treatment and not someone’s generic brand twin. At ANU, you can be sure that you’re getting the real Ultherapy treatment from experienced physicians.
Areas treated with Ultherapy
- Eye: if you have hooded skin over your eyelids, Ultherapy can lift and tighten that! In just 60 to 90 minutes, you’ll be on your way to youthful looking eyes.
- Neck and Chin: jowls, a double chin, and turkey neck might be bothering you in the mirror, but they’re no match for Ultherapy.
- Decolletage (chest area): This area should only take 30 minutes to complete. So many people moisturize their faces but neglect their necks and chests! As you age, your face and neck area may start looking like they’re from two different people!
