A part of our skin’s natural aging process is the loss of collagen production, which leads to sagging, texturized skin with very few ways of improving it. But there is good news—science and technology met and created a cutting-edge, minimally invasive procedure called Ultherapy that helps to refresh and rejuvenate your skin without surgery.
Globally, Ultherapy has helped over a million people, and if you live in beautiful Southern California, it can help you, too. I’m Dr. Christine Eros, board-certified family physician, and I’m proud to offer my patients Ultherapy at my practice, Eros Beauty and Wellness in beautiful San Diego, CA.
Read on to get some answers to some of the most common questions I hear from patients considering Ultherapy.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
Our skin’s health and elasticity rely on collagen. Unfortunately, as we age, our body stops producing as much collagen resulting in sagging and laxity. Using ultrasound energy, Ultherapy penetrates the dermis layer of your skin, boosting its natural ability to improve upon existing collagen while also creating brand new collagen. This process can help you to look dramatically younger.
What Are Some of the Benefits of Ultherapy?
A decline in collagen can cause sagging skin and drooping jowls that can make you look older than you actually are, less energetic, or perpetually unhappy. Ultherapy will help to improve your skin’s overall health by:
- Tightening loose skin
- Slowing down the aging process
- Improve skin’s overall health
- Wrinkle reduction
- Reducing the appearance of jowls or “turkey neck”
- Smoothing away fine lines
Also, because it’s a non-invasive surgery, meaning that no surgery is required, you don’t have to worry about scars, sutures, or risks associated with anesthesia.
Is Ultherapy the Right Procedure for You?
Ultherapy is most effective on patients who would like to correct mildly sagging skin or tighten and firm areas where they have started to notice lines and wrinkles. For the best results, it is recommended that you not have overly lax or sun-damaged skin. During your consultation, I will help you determine if Ultherapy is suitable for you by the quality of your skin, your body’s ability to create new collagen, and your individual skin goals.
What Areas Can Ultherapy Target?
Ultherapy is FDA approved to treat any area of the face, neck, and chest areas. It can also be used to help treat the appearance of a double chin- that stubborn pocket of fat underneath the chin. Ultherapy is also effective in firming and tightening along the jawline.
