Non-Surgical Skin Tightening Rising in Popularity
Advances in plastic surgery have made way for a range of non-surgical cosmetic treatments and methods for enhancing appearance. In particular, non-surgical skin tightening has become very popular in recent years because it serves as a minimally invasive alternative to more invasive procedures for correcting skin laxity and improving skin quality. At the plastic surgery practice of Dr. Bruce Barach, patients can restore a firm and youthful appearance to lax skin with Ultherapy. In this blog post, the New York plastic surgeon shares more information on Ultherapy, including some of its benefits.
Ultherapy is an innovative procedure that lifts and tones loose skin on the face and neck while minimizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles — without surgery. The procedure uses focused ultrasound energy to target the superficial muscular aponeurotic system layer of the skin and subcutaneous tissue of the face and neck. The ultrasound waves deliver heat to the skin’s foundation, which triggers the body’s production of collagen, a protein responsible for the skin’s elastic quality. The collagen regeneration process improves the overall tightness and firmness of the skin, reducing the visibility of wrinkles and other signs of aging. Ultherapy typically takes between 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the degree of correction needed.
More patients are turning to Ultherapy for smooth, firm skin. Here’s why:
It’s minimally invasive. A handpiece is used to deliver ultrasound energy to the skin and tissue. This means no incisions or injections are involved during treatment.
No downtime needed. Patients are free to return to their normal routine immediately after treatment.
Ultherapy works from the inside out. Because it triggers the body’s natural collagen process, Ultherapy improves both the health and beauty of the skin.
Maintenance is easy. Dr. Barach recommends patients undergo “touch-up” sessions once a year to maintain their results.
