Ultherapy is a form of non-invasive facial enhancement, sometimes called a ‘facelift without the surgery’. It uses ultrasound to stimulate the deep layers of the skin to produce more elastin and collagen, both of which make the skin look and feel better.
The procedure takes less than an hour for most clients and does not require any substantial rest or healing afterwards. Some people experience sensations during and after Ultherapy ranging from heat to a buzzy, numb feeling. Both of these are good indicators that the treatment is taking effect.
One of the big pluses of Ultherapy in Edinburgh is its versatility. It can be used in many areas of the face and upper body.
Ultherapy is often used to restore the fullness of cheeks and reverse the drooping effect that is common with age.
Many factors affect the appearance of the skin as time goes by. These may be genetic or the result of lifestyle factors such as smoking, sun exposure or weight change. Regardless of the cause, Ultherapy can go some way to restoring the tight appearance of your skin depending on the severity of the laxity.
One of the deciding factors for many patients who choose Ultherapy is that it can be used on other areas as well as the face. A common choice is the décolletage or area of the upper chest between the breasts. Depending on your build, the creases in this area can become quite pronounced. For some people, this means they feel less confident wearing clothes that expose the décolletage. Rather than restrict yourself to more conservative clothing choices, you can have Ultherapy to rejuvenate this area.
Around the eyes
It’s a fact of life that making expressions causes fine lines. Over time, certain expressions can become habitual, especially if they are associated with common behaviours such as concentrating or smiling. When you are young, the elasticity in the skin means that these lines snap back or lessen when you are not making expressions. As the body produces less elastin as you age, the lines can become more prominent and less likely to smooth out. Ultherapy targets layers around these areas to recharge the production of the substances you need to make your face smooth again.
