Anti-aging: Ultherapy Benefits are Long Lasting

facelift21
Ultherapy has become a popular anti-aging treatment for those looking to tighten, lift and avoid the thin skin associated with aging. The common question with any aesthetic treatment is “how long the effects will last” and with Ultherapy, the answer is a long time.

How Does Ultherapy Work?

Ultherapy is the only device that is cleared for skin tightening and lifting. It uses focused ultrasound to precisely target and treat tissue at three levels, the Superficial Dermis, Deep Dermis and most importantly the SMAS which is at the top of the muscle, all while leaving the surrounding tissue intact. We are not able to treat all these areas with chemical peels, micro-needling or even other devices such as lasers or Radio Frequency. So basically…. this is as good as it gets with the exception of surgery.

Aging

As we age the processes within the skin begin to slow, our skins fibroblast are more sluggish and we produce less hylauronic acid, elastin fibers become weak, we produce less collagen and our collagen becomes un-organized. This all results in lax skin that is less firm and thinning.

Many of the treatments we use in aesthetics, benefit from the skins wound healing ability. By creating a wound healing response in the skin we stimulate the fibroblast to produce more collagen. The type and length of the wound healing benefits can vary, depending on how and where the “wound” was created. For example a scratch or something like microdermabrasion may only be 14 days of increased collagen production, an IPL / BBL treatment is about 3 weeks, and RF treatments around 6 months. Ultherapy leads to an inflammatory wound healing response which stimulates long-term tissue remodeling and leads to further lifting and tightening. Increases collagen production is seen in skin biopsies 12 months after treatment.
Clinical tightening and lifting can be seen as early as 3-6 weeks,but the most appreciable results are seen at 3 months. The duration of response after a single treatment can be up to 2 years.

Anti-Aging Benefits of Ultherapy Observed in Study

– Increased dermal collagen by over 23.7%, new collagen is organized
– Increased over all dermal thickness
– Increased New collagen Type I (21%-30%) and collagen Type III (48%-68%)
– Increased amount of elastin, elastin fibers are more parallel and straighter

Repeating Ultherapy Treatments

The aging process is continues and regardless of which procedure you choose, maintenance is always necessary. The exact longevity of results with any treatment depends on your body’s ability to produce, maintain and breakdown collagen. The frequency of treatments will depend on age, health, lifestyle, condition of skin, other anti-aging measures taken and desired results. Although one year between treatments is most common, many opt for a second treatment as early as 6 months to boost results.Those who are younger may go as long as 2-3 years between treatments. Ultherapy works best as part of a comprehensive approach to aging, your skin care professional can work to customize a plan for your specific needs.
