Skin Tightening and Lifting
Skin Tightening Lexington, KY
As we get older, collagen and elastin—two proteins that help our skin stay plump, firm, and smooth—decline in production, resulting in sagging regions of loose, drooping skin on the face, neck, and body. Non-surgical skin tightening may temporarily halt this process and restore a firmer, smoother, more youthful look with minimal downtime and discomfort if you are concerned about skin laxity.
Skin tightening is an appealing alternative to surgical procedures such as facelift, neck lift or body lift. These options are invasive and can produce prolonged recovery time and a scarring that may be unsightly.
Benefits of non-surgical skin tightening
Ultherapy is a non-invasive, non-surgical technique that uses ultrasound and the body’s natural healing process to tighten, tone, and lift skin. In addition, it’s the first and only ultrasound energy device for aesthetic purposes to be cleared by the FDA with a non-invasive face “lift” indication. One treatment enhances and repairs the collagen in the skin naturally. Because of the deep tightening that is possible with Ultherapy’s powerful tightening effect has been shown to give patients a more defined jawline, a tighter neck, lifted brows, and a more open look to the eyes. Treatments take around 30-60 minutes, and there is no downtime.
Ultherapy is generally used in these areas:
Ultherapy helps to smooth fine lines and wrinkles and tighten loose or sagging skin. An ultrasound treatment, it is purported to be an effective alternative to surgery and Botox. Ultherapy works by creating a mild amount of discomfort and the low-dose ultrasound energy helps lift and tighten skin on top of your scalp, around your eyes and lips, forehead, cheeks and neck – all without ever going under the knife!
