We all age in appearance in different ways. There are wrinklers, sinkers and saggers. Me? I’m a sagger!
Some people can pull off a droopy face, but if you’re not one of them, let me tell you why Ultherapy is my favourite treatment. Ultherapy is an award-winning treatment for skin tightening and the only FDA approved treatment in existence for a “lift” indication. It’s in a league of its own and this article will explain why.
The goal of all skin tightening procedures is to cause controlled injury to the skin to induce collagen denaturization, and subsequent neocollagenesis. In layman’s terms what that means is that the purpose is to trigger a healing response that will produce new collagen. Simplifying this as much as possible, the greater the injury, the more dramatic and long-lasting the result will be. Devices vary greatly but I will attempt to say a lot in a few words:
1) At 1.5 mm for superficial tightening where it is needed.
2) At 3.0 mm to injure deeply into the dermis.
3) At 4.5 mm to bypass the dermis and injure the muscle beneath known as the SMAS. The only other way to injure the SMAS in a
controlled way is with a surgical facelift. Thus, while Ultherapy cannot promise facelift results, it is as close as you can get to a facelift
without going under the knife.
Ultherapy is cutting-edge, but it involves no cutting at all. It is a non-invasive treatment that allows you to have the treatment during the day and go out for dinner that very night. Results develop gradually as new collagen forms over a few months after the treatment. Unlike surgery there is no risk that you will look like anyone other than yourself, only a younger version of yourself.
Skinpossible’s advanced Ultherapists customize every treatment to suit the needs of each individual patient. Ultherapy can reduce sagging on the neck, lift jowls, define the jawline, elevate the brows, reduce hooding of the eyelids and more. It also works very well for tightening skin on areas of the body such as the chest and arms. Ultherapy is an award-winning treatment with the highest patient satisfaction rating of all skin tightening treatments. In 2014 Skinpossible won an award from Ulthera as the top Ultherapy clinic in Canada.
