Have you tried seemingly every skin tightening cream on the market? Are you unhappy about loose, sagging skin but unable or unwilling to get surgery to fix it? If so, you may be a great candidate for Ultherapy at Ciao Bella Medical Center and Spa in Newnan, GA. Keep reading for a better idea of whether you may qualify.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Ultherapy?
You may be considered a good candidate for this treatment if you are a relatively healthy adult who is concerned about the appearance of lax skin. Due to the non-invasive nature of this treatment, the health requirements to qualify for this treatment are less stringent than the health requirements to qualify for an invasive skin tightening procedure, but it’s still important that you come in to discuss any chronic health issues you may have and recent acute illnesses.
We also need to know about any supplements you currently take and any medications you have taken recently to treat acute ailments. Once we determine you are healthy enough to receive this treatment, we will discuss your cosmetic concerns to ensure this treatment will be effective for you. Then, we will explain what you can expect from preparation to seeing your final results. Here’s a closer look at who may qualify for this treatment.
Someone Who Is Young
While Ultherapy is sometimes considered an anti-aging treatment because it tightens the skin, it is appropriate for most healthy adults regardless of age. One of the natural side effects of the aging process is a reduced production rate of essential polysaccharides, fibers, and proteins. Specifically, your skin starts to produce hyaluronic acid, elastin, and collagen at a reduced rate starting around the age of 25.
By the time most people are 30, they can tell their skin is aging. For example, many people notice that their upper eyelids are sagging and their brow line is lowering. Some people even notice these signs of aging before they reach 30 years of age due to environmental factors, like pollutants in the air, sun damage, tobacco consumption, and a poor diet. If you’re in your mid-20s and considering this treatment, you may qualify and benefit significantly.
Why You Should Consider This Treatment When You’re Young
You should consider Ultherapy even if you are young because you can benefit greatly from the extra collagen production that occurs as a result of this treatment. You won’t just erase any signs of aging you are currently seeing. You will also slow down the aging process due to the presence of extra collagen. If you keep your skin hydrated, nourished, and protected from the sun, your results can last for up to five years.
Someone Who Is Old
Older people can also benefit significantly from ultrasound-based skin tightening treatments. To reiterate, you have to be in very good health to qualify for an invasive anti-aging procedure. On the other hand, you only have to be fairly healthy to qualify for ultrasound-based skin tightening treatments.
Fortunately for people who don’t qualify for an invasive procedure, including those with health problems due to their age, this treatment provides dramatic results. In fact, this treatment provides results that are comparable to brow lifts, eyelid lifts, and other lifting procedures. However, you should be aware that, as with any cosmetic treatment, the results won’t last as long as the results of a cosmetic procedure.
Someone Who Has Realistic Expectations About the Results
Regardless of your age, you must have realistic expectations regarding the results of this treatment to qualify. Again, we will go over the results you can expect during your initial consultation. One of the most important things for you to understand is that the results of this treatment can be expected to last for one to five years.
Specifically, you can expect your final results to last for around a year if you are trying to treat skin concerns like hyperpigmentation. If you are trying to treat sagging skin, your results will last for roughly five years if you are young and have fairly healthy skin. If you are old, your skin lifting and tightening results will last for roughly two years due to decades of producing collagen at a reduced rate.
How You Can Extend the Longevity of Your Results
You can extend the longevity of your results by making your skin health a priority. One of the most important things you can do is protect your skin from sun damage because the sun’s UVC rays damage your existing collagen and impede your skin’s ability to make more. Hydration is also crucial for skin health.
