Safe And Silent: Ultrasound Therapy Uses Superior Imaging To Target Saggy Skin
If you're longing to achieve a younger look without surgery, consider the new ultrasound therapy called Ultherapy. It's been available in the US for a while now, and is showing great promise as a noninvasive way to rejuvenate skin. It uses cutting-edge technology to stimulate collagen production in problem skin areas.
The transducer has two elements.
The laser transducer the doctor uses to deliver the therapy has two elements. One element is the imaging element. It reveals the dermis and sub-dermis layers, precisely pinpointing the collagen-producing areas to be treated.
Not only does this superior imaging capability help the doctor more effectively treat your trouble spots, it also helps them avoid the vasculature and bone in the area so that no unwanted areas are affected.
The second element is the treatment element, which delivers the pulses that begin the skin's healing process.
The treatment element can precisely target the right layers.
Once the doctor uses the imaging element to locate the area they want to target, the device delivers the ultrasound energy into very tiny points at the deep layer where collagen is produced. There's no guesswork as to what's happening below the surface as with laser or radio-frequency treatments.
The treatment element can deliver the mechanical energy in 3 layers, easily navigating the contours of your face, neck or chest to deliver it at just the right depth.
Ultrasound therapy may be combined with other treatments.
Ultherapy should be supplemented with other therapies, such as skin cleansers that help prevent common skin conditions, and patients should make positive dietary changes to get the best results.
Making sure you're properly hydrated is key. Moisturize your body from the inside by drinking plenty of water and asking your doctor which supplements and vitamins will help your skin the most. They will also be able to recommend creams and cleansers that keep skin healthy after ultrasound treatment.
The ultrasound treatments are slightly uncomfortable.
Some patients report slight pain during or after treatment. There may be tenderness for a week or so after the therapy sessions. But you won't be covered in bandages and you will have minimal disruption of your daily routine. This is superior to effects after other treatments, such as plastic surgery.
Talk with your dermatologist about ultrasound therapy for your problem spots. It's becoming more popular and available as patients discover the many benefits of this nonsurgical, noninvasive procedure. Your doctor will know if it will work for you.
