As time passes by, you may notice some wrinkles on the upper parts of the face, and you can't help but worry about the appearance of your forehead.
The wrinkle that forms the appearance of a creased brow isn’t a health issue, but many people consider wrinkles to be unsightly.
With Ultherapy, you can reduce the appearance of a creased forehead and help you revitalize your appearance.
Ultherapy is a non-invasive technique for skin rejuvenation that is carried out by focusing ultrasound energy on the treatment area.
In this article, we take a closer look at how the treatment works on the brow.
How the Ultherapy Treatment Works
Ultherapy is a non-invasive method of tightening the skin that utilizes FDA-approved technology.
A single treatment on the forehead takes 60 to 90 minutes.
Ultrasound imaging is carried out to ensure the energy generated is delivered to the intended area. Our Smiles on Randolph medical spa technicians are able see the layers of tissue that require treatment.
The specialist cleans the face and applies ultrasound gel on the brow, making you feel at ease when the process is underway.
The ultrasound energy targets areas under the skin of the forehead with an exact temperature to support the regeneration of collagen. The energy facilitates the creation of elastic tissue and collagen, resulting in stronger, smoother skin.
You may experience tingling and a warm sensation, swelling, and some reddening which typically goes away a few days after the treatment. You are able to resume your normal activities immediately.
The results depend on your body’s ability to create new collagen. Improvements may be noticeable for up to three months.
What Causes Wrinkles on the Brow?
Wrinkles become a natural part of the aging process. As time goes by, the face starts to thin and lose its elasticity. The elasticity and thinning causes the forehead to form wrinkles.
Facial expressions like frowning and squinting can result in wrinkles, which deepen as you age. The skin loses its flexibility with time making the forehead form permanent grooves.
Exposure to sunlight also causes the breakdown of collagen.
Poor nutrition may result in premature aging of the skin.
Preventive Measures for Brow Wrinkles
Healthy diets with vitamins help protect your skin. Consume plenty of water, vegetables, and fruits.
Efficient face moisturizers trap water under your skin, which assists in masking tiny wrinkles on the face.
You can always try to prevent having wrinkles with regular exercise.
If you have tried all of these approaches and are still dealing with forehead wrinkles, then Ultherapy might be the right choice for you.
