If you have sagging facial skin, but you’re not quite ready for a facelift, Ultherapy may be a good alternative for you. Ultherapy reconditions and renews the skin from within, which makes it a very effective solution for tired skin. We know that the rejuvenating effects of a surgical facelift can last for many years, but how long do the results of an ultherapy procedure last.
Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment that is designed to tighten and lift sagging skin on the face and neck. It is a technique in which ultrasound energy is directed into the deep support layers below the surface of the skin, where the collagen fibers are found.
Ultherapy stimulates collagen resulting in a regenerative response that causes the skin to contract over time. The treatment takes less than an hour to complete, so it can be conveniently done during your lunch hour.
What can Ultherapy do for you?
Ultherapy won’t stop the aging clock, but it will help it to tick a lot slower. That’s because it regenerates collagen, which is a special type of protein that helps keep the skin smooth and firm. As new collagen develops, there will be a noticeable improvement in the appearance of the skin.
How long do the results of Ultherapy Last?
The results of Ultherapy typically last for about one year, but the full effects of the procedure take about 3 months to show. Doctors recommend having additional treatments done in the future to reduce the effects of aging.
