Facial imperfections like saggy jowls, no longer have to be corrected with plastic surgery, as there are now a number of non-invasive options available. So if you prefer not to go under the knife, you don’t have to worry about how to treat saggy jowls. Laser, radiofrequency, and ultrasound technologies, can be used to tighten cheeks and jowls, and rejuvenate the face.
The problem of sagging jowls
Sagging jowls can be caused by factors such as weight gain and environmental influences. However, it is also one of the most common beauty problems that accompany aging. Droopy jowls alter your profile, and make you look older.
Ultherapy is one of the most effective non-surgical skin tightening treatments. It uses highly focused ultrasound technology to lift and firm the soft tissues of the skin. Ultherapy can correct skin laxity on all parts of the face and body, as it delivers energy to the deep skin layers, where it stimulates collagen production (read more).
Ultherapy typically requires one 60 minute session to achieve the desired results. There is no downtime, so patients can get back to their regular activities immediately. Improvements will continue to be seen for several months after treatment, as new collagen is formed, and the skin cells regenerate.
Who is it for?
Ultherapy is recommended for younger individuals with a minor degree of skin laxity. People with moderate amounts of loose skin, who are not yet ready for surgery, can definitely benefit from Ultherapy.
