While there are plenty of advantages to getting older, no one really likes to look old, do they? If you would like to look younger and more vital, ultrasonic technology offers you a solution like no other. Ultrasonic skin tightening is a revolutionary, non-surgical, face and neck treatment that employs ultrasound technology to lift, tighten, and tone loose and sagging skin and restore its youthful suppleness without any recovery time. And, what's great about this procedure is you'll be able to return to your normal, daily activities immediately, without doing anything else.
What are some of the conditions for which patients may seek ultrasonic skin therapy? The crow's feet, saggy skin, drooping eyelids, baggy eyes, laugh lines, turkey neck, widow's peak, and double chin brought on by advancing age can make us look older than we are and give us a sad, tired, worrisome, or even angry appearance, even when we are happy and full of energy. Ultrasonic skin tightening can easily treat all these conditions.
What are some factors that may be responsible giving your skin that droopy, worn look? These include aging, exposure to the sun, and weight loss.
Aging – As we age, our bodies are exposed to the unlenting ravages of earth's gravity, which causes the skin to droop a little more with each passing day. As you age, your skin loses vital structural proteins, collagen and elastin, which give your skin that plump, soft, and youthful look. In addition, your face muscles gradually weaker and atrophy over time, which takes its toll.
The Sun – Exposure to the sun's strong rays is another reason that skin loses its elasticity. Over time, this accelerates the aging process. So, all the time you spent in your youth sunning yourself in the backyard or at the beach, you were actually doing harm to your skin, breaking down even more vital collagen and elastin than the aging process alone.
Weight Loss – If you're currently overweight, losing weight is, hands down, the single, most important thing you can do to improve your health. That being said, those who lose large amounts of weight quickly find that their skin has begun to droop, and men and women who undergo lapband or bariatric surgery often find that their skin is too stretched out to shrink back by itself.
Ultrasonic skin tightening lifts moderate to moderate skin sagging by reconditioning and renewing your skin from the inside out; it will lift your brow, open up your eyes, and give you a more youthful, refreshed, and vivacious appearance. Ultrasonic skin tightening is used to lift and tighten saggy skin on your neck and under your chin, removing the dreaded “double chin,” “turkey waddle” which so many people dislike.
How does the procedure feel? Typically, most patients typically leave relaxed and happy about the benefits to come. Of course, comfort thresholds vary from person to person, and most patients report no discomfort, but there can be some minor discomfort while the ultrasonic energy is working on your skin. However, this is temporary and a positive sign that the collagen / elastin restorative process has begun. The rejuvenation process usually does not occur overnight, but in just a few short months, you will see the results you desire.
