Restore your own Collagen for Vibrant, Youthful Skin

Oct 20, 2015 04:37AM, Published by Family Features, Categories: Family Features, Family Features Lifestyle




(Family Features) There are times in your life when you look in the mirror and the face reflected back at you, does not match how you think of yourself. As collagen breaks down, the skin becomes less elastic and reveals telltale signs of time. A lowered eyebrow line, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin and lines or wrinkles on the chest all tell more than you may wish to reveal about your age. Fortunately, boosting your body’s own collagen production can actually be done non-surgically to achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your brow to your chest.

A treatment known as Ultherapy® is the only noninvasive FDA-cleared procedure to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow. It also is the only non-invasive treatment specifically FDA-cleared to improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.

The treatment stimulates the natural formation of your own collagen and elastin in the skin’s foundation to gradually smooth wrinkles. As the ultrasound energy is delivered, tiny amounts of energy are deposited to precise depths, indicating that your body’s collagen building process has been initiated and tired collagen is replaced by the growth of new collagen.

Ultherapy stimulates your body’s production of fresh, new collagen by jumpstarting a natural process known as neocollagenesis. Unlike alternative treatments, it doesn't involve any creams, fillers or toxins; Ultherapy relies solely on your body's own collagen-building process.

The treatment delivers focused ultrasound energy to the same foundational layer typically addressed by surgeons during cosmetic surgery, without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. Unlike lasers, radio-frequency and other technologies, Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver energy at optimal depths, temperature and precision.

Also unique to Ultherapy is the use of ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring energy is delivered safely and to where it will be most beneficial.

Some initial results are achieved in just one treatment, but more noticeable results are visible after about two to three months. Future touch-up treatments can produce continued results.

The length of the treatment depends on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure takes 60–90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes. Following a treatment, there is no downtime and no post-treatment care requirements.
