Are you looking for ways to firm your sagging skin? Try Ultherapy, a non-invasive treatment to lift and tighten your facial features.
As you age, your skin loses its elasticity and begins to sag. While it is completely normal, many people want to get rid of sagging skin as it adds years to the appearance. You may notice sagging skin almost anywhere on the body.
Some common areas where you might see saggy skin include:
- Upper arms
Fortunately, there are many ways to treat sagging skin. But first, we need to understand why it happens.
Why does your skin start to sag?
Several reasons can cause skin sagging.
- As our skin ages, levels of collagen and elastin begin to decrease. These two proteins are crucial for your skin as they are responsible for keeping your skin taut and firm.
- External factors such as UV rays and pollutants in the environment, including cigarette smoke, can also reduce collagen and elastin levels.
- UV light slows down the formation of new collagen while also activating enzymes that break down existing collagen, causing elasticity and volume loss in our skin as we age.
- Drastic weight loss could also be responsible for sagging skin.
How to treat sagging skin?
Do you want to get rid of loose, sagging skin without going under the knife? Ultherapy, a non-invasive way to firm areas like the chin, neck, brow, and décolleté, is an excellent option for you.
But what exactly is Ultherapy? Ultherapy is an FDA-approved non-invasive procedure that lifts the skin on the face, neck, as well as the skin under the chin, and the eyebrow. This skin-tightening procedure uses ultrasound energy to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in natural-looking results.
How does Ultherapy work?
Ultherapy is a simple, non-surgical procedure to lift and tighten your skin. During the procedure, the machine uses ultrasonic energy to go through your skin to penetrate the muscle of the area you’re treating. The machine has multiple attachments that allow superficial, medium, and deep penetration. It causes the muscle to contract and shrink, producing heat and friction, thus stimulating collagen and elastin production. Ultherapy provides a firming, wrinkle-smoothing, and contouring effect.
Is there any downtime?
Since Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure, it has little-to-no downtime. It is one of the most popular skin tightening procedures as you don’t have to alter your routine much. Unlike surgical procedures, you can resume your daily activities immediately after the treatment.
Are the results visible instantly, and how long do they last?
Ultherapy tightens your sagging skin by triggering the creation of new collagen by inflicting thermal injury. Therefore, you don’t see the results immediately after the treatment. The results appear over two to three months and continue to improve over the following three to six months. And the best part? You only need one session to achieve taut and firm skin.
But are these results permanent? Ultherapy offers incredible results, but they are not permanent. They last for a year, but you can increase the longevity of Ultherapy results by taking good care of your skin and protecting it from sun damage. We recommend repeating the treatment after about a year to maintain the results.
