As we grow older, facial skin and tissue are affected by a lack of collagen, loosening its structure and elasticity. The underlying firm, fresh skin quality we took for granted in our youth is lost, with fine lines, wrinkles, and creases now starting to make an appearance. Unfortunately, aging skin often makes us look tired and old. Dr. Nassif offers Ultherapy in Beverly Hills as one of the latest generation of non-surgical treatments to restore and rejuvenate issue on the face and neck.
The demand for healthier, more organic cosmetic enhancement has led to the development of revolutionary new technologies. The latest generation of treatments are geared to trigger the body’s natural healing ability and restore a more youthful appearance. One of the most effective new procedures is Ultherapy, which employs advanced ultrasound energy to help stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen, providing the benefits of a facelift or neck lift without surgery or downtime.
What Is Collagen and Why is It So Important?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in our body. It is present in virtually all structural components such as muscles, bones, skin, blood vessels, tendons, and in the digestive system. It provides strength, elasticity, and structure – essentially holding the body together.
Age slows the body’s collagen production, resulting in the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, creases, and sagging face, neck, and décolletage. Studies confirm that increasing collagen can significantly improve skin elasticity, moisture, suppleness, and texture. When the power of collagen is harnessed, your skin reaps the benefits.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
Ultrasound has been used safely throughout the medical field for over a half century. Ultherapy is a process that uses ultrasound to lift and tighten the skin by activating the body’s healing power. The advanced technology in the Ultherapy device bypasses the epidermis and dermis to focus energy at three specific layers to stimulate collagen growth in just one treatment.
As the ultrasound transducer is applied, all tissue levels from the skin to the bone are visible on an imaging screen. This transducer can focus 95% of the ultrasonic energy to a point less than a millimeter in diameter. The system then releases thermal energy to targeted points causing to stimulate contraction of collagen fibers to tighten and areas that in the past could only be treated with surgical intervention. The procedure is painless and does not require the use of anesthetics.
This technology can result in a precise and non-surgical facial tissue rejuvenation once only possible with facial surgery, but without the aggressive approach and recovery time.
Our Los Angeles Ultherapy can be combined with other procedures such as volume replacement fillers to create a fresh, rejuvenated, and aesthetic appeal to the face and neck.
When you come in for a consultation at Nassif Medspa, we will assess your skin and discuss the procedures that will restore and rejuvenate your facial skin. One of most positive aspects of this procedure is that there are no special preparations needed prior to your appointment. Ultherapy of the full face and neck will take about 60 to 90 minutes.
How Soon Will I See Results?
Patients should see some dramatic improvements immediately after the procedure but the maximum improvements 2 to 3 months after treatment. The new collagen production needs time establish a firm, more elastic structure under the skin. As it does, the skin will gradually lift and tighten on the face and neck. The results are remarkable.
Am I a Candidate for Ultherapy?
Typically, those in their thirties and older are good candidates. You should have some degree of skin laxity with sagging, lines, and wrinkles. Loose skin under the neck and chin give an aged appearance, even to people in their thirties. Ultherapy can restore a fresher, firmer look to various areas of the face and neck. Ultherapy does not replace other and wrinkle smoothing treatments such as a facelift or neck lift when appropriate to the individual. However, the procedure is effective when used in combination with other therapies to prolong and maintain results, or boost the long-term results of cosmetic surgery.
