If age is catching up with you really fast, your skin has probably started sagging around certain areas because of losing its elasticity and strength. Collagen is the protein that is responsible for keeping your skin tight and toned. Unfortunately, collagen breaks down, and its production starts slowing down as we continue to grow. If you are not ready for a facelift, Ultherapy is an excellent alternative that can provide reliable results with no downtime. When you visit Rio Medical in Hudson, your skin will be tightened using this revolutionary ultrasound skin tightening treatment.
So what exactly is Ultherapy? It is an FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment that relies on ultra-sound technology for lifting, toning as well as tightening sagged skin. This treatment makes use of micro-focused ultra-sound energy beneath the skin to initiate collagen regeneration. You can use it to safely tone and tighten sagged skin on various parts of your body, including the eyebrows, chin, cheeks, jawline, chest, neck as well as below the arms and knee area.
The good thing about using collagen for skin tightening is that preparation for the treatment is very minimal. Regular exercise, eating as well as work routines can be maintained before and after this treatment. However, before undergoing the treatment, the Ultherapy provider may advise you to clean and get rid of any make up on the areas that you intend to treat. You can also be advised to take anti-inflammatory or pain-relieving medication before undergoing the treatment.
Generally, there is now downtime related to this treatment. You can resume normal activities without any restrictions immediately after undergoing the treatment. You will see the first results just a few days after undergoing the treatment depending on your body’s ability to generate collagen.
