Ultherapy is an exciting, FDA-approved, non-invasive cosmetic procedure that significantly tones and lifts the skin on the face, neck, chin, and brow. But even though the treatments are an ideal option that fits the needs of a large number of people seeking rejuvenating skin treatments, few are aware that they are a good candidate for the therapy.
In this post, we will take an in-depth look at who might benefit from Ultherapy and who might find a better option elsewhere.
Who Will Benefit Most From Ultherapy Treatments?
Ultherapy is ideal for both men and women who have mild to moderate skin laxity in their brow, neck, and chin area. Those with more severe sagging may wish to seek an option with more dramatic results, such as a surgical facelift, chin lift or brow lift. Starting Ultherapy treatments earlier in life–before skin laxity becomes a very visible issue–can better help you combat these signs of aging.
Ultherapy is also ideal for candidates who want a subtle improvement in their appearance–a natural change that leaves you looking refreshed and youthful without others necessarily knowing that you have received treatments. Again those looking for more dramatic change may wish for a more invasive option.
There is no right age for getting Ultherapy treatments, though most patients are between 40 and 60 years old. Signs that you may benefit from a series of Ultherapy treatments include loose skin on the neck, sagging skin under the chin, or wrinkled skin on the brow.
Ultherapy is a good choice for those who do not wish to choose a procedure that involves a longer recovery or a procedure that is not cost effective. Ultherapy is also a good choice who do not wish for any visible signs of a procedure immediately following treatment.
Finally, Ultherapy may be a good option for those who have had surgical cosmetic procedures in the past and who wish to extend the longevity of those procedures.
Who Is Not An Ideal Candidate For Ultherapy?
Be sure to talk to your doctor about any medications you are taking as well as any important information regarding health conditions. Ultherapy may not be appropriate for very young or very old patients.
Those who have severe wrinkling or skin sagging may wish to explore surgical cosmetic procedures that often have more dramatic results.
