Skin Tightening Procedures: What to Expect

When it comes to making you look young again, restoring and rejuvenating your skin is one of the most important parts of reclaiming your youthful appearance. What various skin tightening methods typically concern themselves with is filling the subdermal layers with collagen and elastin proteins and tightening up your skin. The more lifting and tightening that can be done, the less likely there will be any fine lines, wrinkles or sagging skin that needs addressing.

A Closer Look at Ultherapy

One of the cosmetic skin tightening procedures that has been gaining popularity is Ultherapy. Using ultrasound imaging to look into the sublayers of skin, the practitioner can see where to target the dermis with ultrasound energy. This ultrasound energy then heats up the sublayers of skin, and this stimulates collagen and elastin proteins over the following months. What results from this action is smoother, tighter skin and a lift in the targeted areas.

Since Ultherapy is non-invasive, there is virtually no recovery time with this skin tightening procedure. You could have this cosmetic treatment performed in the morning, and you could be back to work after lunch. Ultherapy is not going to hinder your daily routine. The procedure works best when it is used around the eyes, under the chin and on the neck and chest.

Advantages Over Surgical Treatments

A more aggressive approach to tightening skin and minimizing signs of aging is a facelift or some other type of surgical procedure. However, as you already know, these procedures have their downsides. If you want to avoid the discomfort, hassle, and cost associated with surgery, it’s well-worth considering non-surgical skin tightening in the form of Ultherapy.

Getting Started

Generally, the results of Ultherapy skin tightening procedures are not as dramatic as a full facelift, but you will find that they are much easier to endure without the lengthy recovery period and scarring that can occur with having a facelift. And the results can be truly amazing. Contact us today at Doctors MedSpa in Little Rock to book a consultation and learn more.
