The Art Of Aging Gracefully With Ultherapy

Aging is an unavoidable process. Our youthful mien and firm, supple skin will eventually disappear, and give way to wrinkles, folds, and saggy skin. While we know that aging and saggy skin comes hand in hand, what many do not know is that wrinkles, folds, and loose skin form on our face due to bone resorption.

Bone resorption is the process in which bone mass is reduced as one ages, much like how older individuals get osteoporosis. The smaller skull combined with looser, collagen-depleted skin, which drapes on the skull, leads to wrinkle formation and sagging skin in the jowls, brow, and undereye areas. Photo-aging, which is skin damage and skin aging caused by intense and chronic exposure to sunlight, also contributes to the sagging and wrinkling of facial skin. That is why doctors cannot emphasize enough the importance of wearing sunblock.

Although we know that prevention is better than cure, there is just so much to deal with in our fast-paced life that we often forget to take care of our health and neglect our skin. Even celebrities are not immune to the impact of aging. Lindsay Lohan, Renee Zellweger, Britney Spears, Janice Dickinson, and Pamela Anderson are just some household names who have simply let time take its natural toil on their face.

Not everyone wants to embrace the deep wrinkles, folds, and lose of volume that aging brings. If the sagging jowls, dark eye bags, and deep laugh lines bother you when you look into the mirror, then why not let medical technology help you slow down the aging process.

Aging gracefully with Ultherapy

Ultherapy is a non-surgical and no downtime treatment to reverse the impact of aging. It uses focused ultrasound energy to penetrate deep into our skin, going pass the epidermis and dermis layer to heat up our body’s superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS), which is a layer of of muscles and connective tissue that is rich in collagen.

When this soft tissue is warmed up, collagen is produced thus firming up loose, saggy skin. This treatment is very precise as it penetrates the skin at depths of 4.5mm, 3.0mm, and 1.5mm to induce collagen production. The body’s regenerative response is then triggered, rejuvenating collagen and resulting in a tighter firmer appearance.

Ultherapy is not only suitable for mature patients but younger ones too, to treat troubled areas.

Here’s what Ultherapy can do for:

  1. Young patients to maintain firmness of the face and spot treatment of troubled areas like eyebags, cheeks/jowl area, and brows.
  2. Mature patients to lift sagging areas due to aging. Also suitable for spot treatment of troubled areas like eyebags, cheeks/jowl area, brows, and neck.

A great time to start is now

Whether you are in your 20s, 30s, 40s or even 60s, it is never too late to start loving yourself and pampering your skin. You can’t help getting older, but you don’t have to look your age!
