What are the Advantages of Ultherapy?
Gone are the days when only surgical methods could cure the signs of early aging. All credits to technology and science, you can look younger in no time without any kind of surgery these days. This is possible by going for Ulthera, which is a non surgical tightening treatment that makes the use of ultrasound energy for encouraging the collagen production. The renovated collagen helps in reducing the sag and restore a smoother and tighter look to the skin. Although, ulthera has helped many people to look young, but not everyone is eligible for the same. Here are the benefits of going for ultherapy.
- Quick treatment
Surgery takes a lot of time for consulting a plastic surgeon, preparing for the procedure and weeks for recovery. The process itself takes a lot of time, ranging from few hours a day to all day, on the basis of the complexity of the process and the number of processes you are going through. On the other hand, ultherapy is a quick process. It will begin with a quick consultation with a plastic surgeon and you may discuss what you will get from the procedure and whether you are eligible for it or not. If you are, then this process may take around 30 to 60 minutes. The actual time is determined on the basis of the size of the area being treated. Ulthera is meant for skin tightening in the eyebrow area, neck and chin. It also reduces the appearance of wrinkles on the chest.
- Minimal to no discomfort
As ultherapy doesn’t need any incisions, it is usually a more comfortable process than surgery. Many people may feel a tingling or burning sensation when the devices give away ultrasonic energy. If you are concerned about the discomfort, then ask your surgeon for an anesthetic before the treatment begins. This will numb the treated area.
- No downtime
Surgery may put a pause to your work and exercise for a week or sometimes even longer. Even if you resume with your work, you may have to delay on the stressful activities for a few more weeks. But when it comes to ultherapy, you need no downtime. You can go back to work immediately after the treatment has been accomplished. The best part here is you don’t have to wait for days or weeks to resume exercising again. You may be able to see some bruising or swelling in the treated area for a few days later. Cold compresses can help in eliminate the sweeling and you can see it fading in the third day itself.
