Ultherapy: Skin Tightening Options in Ottawa
As we age, our skin can appear looser and less toned. Fine lines and wrinkles begin to appear and a general reduction in the taught skin becomes more apparent. These changes are due to a decrease in collagen and elastin. While surgical procedures such as a facelift is an effective option, many individuals are looking for a less invasive approach to tighten their skin. Ultherapy is a unique technology that is approved to tighten and tone the skin of the neck and face without surgery or downtime.
Ultherapy at Concept Medical in Ottawa is a non-invasive, ultrasound therapy that is intended to lift and transform the areas of the chin, neck, face, and neck. Ultherapy uses targeted ultrasound energy to go deep underneath the skin. This energy causes your body to tighten the targeted skin by stimulating new collagen to form. Although it does not replicate a facelift it is an option for those not wishing to go under the knife.
At Concept Medical, results typically occur gradually over the course of several months following your treatment. Ultherapy uses ultrasound imaging that allows practitioners to view the several layers of tissues and target the ultrasound energy to the desired area. Ultherapy is usually a one-time treatment although many patients choose to have Ultherapy more than once for added benefit.
You may notice an immediate tightening appearance following your Ultherapy procedure. However, Ultherapy results become more noticeable after 3-12 months as your own body forms new collagen. There is no downtime following your Ultherapy treatment. Ultherapy typically takes between 1-2 hours to complete depending on the area being treated. Ultherapy has been performed safely in over 350,000 treatments worldwide with ultrasound technology being used widely in medicine for more than 50 years.
