Unfortunately, as we age, skin starts to sag. When that happens, feeling beautiful becomes more and more difficult. It seems impossible to hide that skin around the eyes and the mouth, and since women are still judged on their beauty, it leads to them taking quite extreme surgical methods. It now seems, however, that there is no more need for that, since women can choose to have Ulthera treatment instead.
What Is Ulthera?
It is a non-surgical treatment that helps to address loose, sagging skin. It has become very popular as of late because it is painless and requires no recovery time. In fact, it can easily be completed during a lunch break hour. There is barely any swelling or redness, meaning that nobody needs to know you have had “something” done.
If you see your skin is starting to sag and doesn’t look as smooth any more, Ulthera may sound too good to be true. Could it really be so simple that you only have to walk into a specialist’s office, and you walk back out looking 10 years younger without any risk? Although it does take a few weeks for the full results to become visible, that is basically as simple as it is.
Understanding Ulthera Results
You must understand that you will not see an instant result. If you are 50 years old, you won’t come out looking like an 18 year old within minutes. The results aren’t instant, in other words. Rather, skin cells, collagen, and elastin, are stimulated to tighten up. You will see some results and feel better instantly, but you will have to wait a little while for the full results. Those results, by the way, last for years. As your skin starts to regenerate the necessary cells to keep it smooth and tight, it can be said that the results are permanent. However, your skin will start to age once again after a while, which means that you won’t look like an 18 year old until you are 90 either. You may have to have the treatment repeated every three to five years, in other words.
The best thing about Ulthera is that it was FDA approved in 2014, meaning that it is completely safe. People still eye it with suspicion to a degree, however, but that is mainly because we are so used to the concept that the only way to truly look younger is to go under the knife. So long as you choose a registered and trained specialist, however, you will be able to experience the miracle that is Ulthera for yourself.
Physicians who are trained in using this procedure know how to deliver it in such a way that gives you the best results. They will also tell you honestly how long it will take before you notice the full results, and they will make sure that you have realistic expectations. Unlike Botox, which is also non-surgical and highly effective, there is no chance of having a frozen face, and you don’t have to go back every few months for new treatment.
