The science behind Ultherapy treatment for sagging skin in South Denver – Greenwood Village or Lone Tree
The desire to slow or reverse the signs of aging is nothing new. Evidence of beautifying treatments has been found dating back to ancient civilizations. Although these primitive treatments likely had very little, if any effect, cosmetic enhancement became a reality in the 20th century. The first genuine medical solutions were surgical, and they carried significant risks, pain, and downtime. Effective, nonsurgical techniques began appearing just a few decades ago, and they have changed the face of cosmetic medicine.
Although the safety of surgery has improved dramatically in modern times, there is a growing number of people who simply don’t want to go under the knife. Image may be more important than ever, but time is more precious than ever. Today’s patients demand reliable results, safe treatments, and minimal disruption to their busy lives – and Ultherapy delivers!
Ultherapy skin tightening is truly in a class of its own. When it gained FDA approval in 2009, a new category of devices was created, because there were no other approved technologies for noninvasive lift. Ultherapy is unique in many ways:
- Unlike surgery and other invasive techniques, Ultherapy does not involve significant downtime, or leave scars.
- Unlike radiofrequency and laser devices, Ultherapy does not deliver heat through the skin surface. Instead, it penetrates the surface with ultrasound energy, safely targeting the (SMAS) (superficial muscular aponeurotic system) layer below the skin.
- According to a study be Northwestern University, Ultherapy achieved a clinically significant amount of lifting in the brow area for 89 percent of patients.
- Because there are no electrical or impulses, Ultherapy does not risk electrical shock, so a grounding plate is not needed. It is safe for virtually anyone, including patients with pacemakers.
