Let’s be honest: Everybody wants to look their best. Unfortunately, our bodies are constantly changing over time, making it hard to keep everything where you want it. There are so many different products and treatments out there that it is hard to know what works and what doesn’t. At Boise Image’s med spa, you can find many different treatments to rejuvenate your face or body. One innovative way that they use to tighten and lift the skin on your face and neck is with our Boise Ultherapy® treatment.
Collagen and elastin are proteins that provide your skin’s strength and elasticity. Ultherapy® uses ultrasound technology to stimulate the production of your body’s collagen and elastin. It is an effective, FDA-approved way to reduce lines and wrinkles in your brow, neck, chin, and chest.
Ultherapy® is a nonsurgical skin lift. It can provide what plastic surgery can do for your skin, but without any cuts or recovery time. As we age, our collagen levels naturally decrease, leaving the skin with less strength and elasticity. Ultherapy® uses the proteins that are already in your skin to help provide the lift you want in your face and neck.
Ultherapy® does not use surgery, radio frequency, or lasers. Instead, Ultherapy® uses ultrasound to target deep into the skin with the right temperature to jumpstart collagen production. It does not break the surface of the skin at all but instead can reach deeper than other cosmetic devices are able to—all the way to the foundation of the skin. The skin will then contract and tighten.
Ultherapy® is often used as a face and neck lift alternative, but those are not the only areas of your body that you can receive the treatment. Ultherapy® can be used to help other areas of your body that you want to be tightened, such as your chin, jawline, arms, abdomen, thighs, and buttocks.
The truth is that Ultherapy® varies in the amount of time it takes, as well as the number of treatments you require to get the result you want. Face and neck procedures often take approximately ninety minutes to be completed in the med spa. However, there is no downtime after treatment while you wait to recover. Over the next two to three months, you will begin to see the difference. Most people only need one Ultherapy® treatment, but if the skin is especially loose or your body does not respond strongly enough to the ultrasound technology, you may benefit from more than one treatment. Many people who use Ultherapy® choose to come back for touch-ups as they continue to age.
If you are interested in getting a touch-up to your skin using Ultherapy®, make an appointment with the experts at Boise Image. They will help you achieve the look you want with non-invasive technology that you will love.
