Non-Surgical Skin Tightening

With today’s modern medicine and technology advances, there are more options than ever before for non-invasive skin-tightening procedures.

One of the best solutions available is Ultherapy, a form of ultrasound skin tightening. This alternative to surgery helps improve skin laxity and correct poor skin quality.

Improve he Quality Of Your Skin

Considering Ulthera Treatments

When should a patient consider Ulthera treatments? Non-surgical skin tightening becomes a good possibility if you have mild to moderate loose skin on your face and neck. It should also be considered if you would like to improve the quality of your skin and if you are unwilling or unable to undergo a more invasive facial cosmetic surgery solution like a face lift or neck lift.

Some of the advantages that are making Ulthera the go-to skin tightening procedure are that it is performed with no incisions and minor discomfort and has little to no downtime. Ultherapy is perfect for all skin types, unlike laser treatments, in which a person’s pigmentation must be carefully considered.

Some of the cons to consider with Ultherapy are that the results will certainly be less dramatic than those that can be obtained with a facelift, browlift, or necklift. There comes a certain time in everyone’s life where the non-surgical, non-invasive procedures will achieve the desired results only for so long. Eventually, the battle against aging and genetics needs to look to plastic surgery options for optimal results. A consultation at Dr. Torgerson’s facial cosmetic clinic will help establish whether or not you are in the right category to be a suitable candidate and achieve the results you want.

Another consideration is that there can be skin redness and temporary swelling or numbness around the treated areas following the skin-tightening procedure. However, most clients find that they can still go about their daily routine, and it doesn’t affect their schedule.

Fresh Collagen That Gradually Tightens and Lifts the Skin

Ultrasound Treatment

How do ultrasound treatments work? The Ulthera technology works to focus ultrasonic energy to the deepest dermal layer of your skin. One of the best advantages of the treatments is that your skin and tissue above the focus point of the ultrasound is protected. Collagen is stimulated, so new growth will occur in the 3 months following treatment. It is this new, fresh collagen that gradually tightens and lifts the skin. There are times when more than one treatment may be necessary to achieve the best results.

Once you’ve booked your treatment and are ready to proceed, the area to be treated will be measured and marked. Often, Dr. Torgerson’s facial cosmetic clinic offers regional freezing to ensure patient comfort throughout the process. Ultrasound gel will be applied to the skin, and the handpiece will be placed onto the skin. An image of your facial and/or neck tissue deep below the surface will be projected onto the Ultherapy screen. The treatment area and zone is carefully calculated, monitored, and recorded by the device as the treatment proceeds. Small thermal bursts are emitted from the ultrasound technology to stimulate the supporting layers of the skin, promoting skin tightening that is both immediate and released over time with the formation of collagen, without disrupting the surface of the skin.
