As you get older, wrinkles may start appearing on your face, and you can’t help but become bothered with the noticeable creases formed.
If you’re concerned about wrinkles, Ultherapy can reduce the lines and help you achieve a younger look.
Ultherapy is a non-surgical technique of tightening the skin. The procedure is carried out by focusing ultrasound energy on the target area without cutting the skin.
Read on for a detailed explanation of how the treatment works on the face.
How Ultherapy Works
Ultherapy is a treatment that utilizes FDA-approved technology to tighten the skin on your face with less downtime.
A single Ultherapy treatment on your face lasts about 60 to 90 minutes, enabling you to have the treatment on your lunch break.
Your Smiles on Randolph med spa specialist uses an ultrasound viewer to set the Ultherapy device to the proper settings before placing it against the skin. Ultrasound energy is then aimed at the targeted areas.
It would be best to remove any makeup and other skincare products from the face before the procedure. The specialist will clean your face of any other residue and apply ultrasound gel, making you experience a relaxing sensation during the treatment.
The absorbed ultrasound energy boosts the regeneration of collagen, which tightens the skin on the face.
Sensations of tingling and heat might be felt, and the treatment area(s) may turn red after the treatment. The side effects usually disappear within a few days, and you can continue with your daily life immediately.
You can start to notice changes after the procedure within a few days. The results are determined by your body’s capacity to produce new collagen. Positive results may continue for up to three months.
What Makes Your Face Prone to Wrinkles?
Facial expressions like frowning, smiling, and squinting result in fine lines, which deepen as you grow older. As you age, the skin loses its flexibility making the skin form permanent grooves.
Certain sleeping positions like sleeping on your stomach or side cause the skin to crease if you are in the same place frequently. External pressure on the skin results in the creation of facial wrinkles.
Poor nutrition can also cause premature aging of the skin.
Preventive Measures for Wrinkles on the Face
Eat a healthy diet with vitamins to help protect your skin. Consume plenty of vegetables and fruits.
Minimize the time spent under the sun, and always wear sunglasses and sunscreen when outdoors.
Use an effective face moisturizer to trap water under your skin, which assists in masking tiny creases on the face. Drinking water is another effective approach to moisturizing.
Avoid sleeping on your stomach, face down every time you go to bed. Ensure there’s no external pressure on your face constantly.
If none of these have helped reduce your facial wrinkles, then Ultherapy might be the best approach for you.
