Ultherapy: The Breakthrough Treatment That Tightens Jowls With Ultrasound Energy

Have you ever checked yourself in the mirror and was startled by a much older version of you staring back? It’s inevitable that at some point in time we all will see sagging skin around our jowls and wrinkles on our face and neck, where once stood tight, youthful skin. Although aging is a natural process, wouldn’t it be nice if you could somehow turn back time and regain that beautiful, firm, youthful skin you once had? You are not alone.

The fascination and determination to battle against aging can be found throughout history from Ponce de León’s journey to find the Fountain of Youth to today’s multi-billion dollar anti-aging market.

But with so many treatments available, how do you find the one that best suits your desired outcome? And what are your choices for sagging jowls if you’re just not ready for a surgical procedure like a facelift?

David Alonso, MD, of Amour Medical Aesthetics, Inc. knows that having many treatment options to choose from is great, but can sometimes be confusing as well. Dr. Alonso shares his experience with a game-changing FDA-approved treatment called Ultherapy® which helps tighten sagging jowls and so much more.

Considering the alternative, most of us accept aging as a natural processthat is until we notice that first wrinkle or, worse yet, a sagging jowl. Then, all of a sudden, finding a way to tighten skin and battle against the signs of aging becomes a priority. After all, you can be proud of your age, but nothing says you have to look it.

Harnessing ultrasound technology

Ultherapy is a breakthrough treatment that makes the telltale signs of aging like sagging jowls and wrinkles and fine lines in the eyebrows, neck, and décolletage areas seemingly disappear. Sounds like magic, right? Well, this is how it works.

Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to penetrate beyond the skin’s surface to actually lift the skin to improve the appearance of fine lines and to firm up sagging jowls. You may be familiar with ultrasound used to diagnose medical conditions.

In the case of Ultherapy, initially, Dr. Alonso uses the ultrasound imagery to develop a treatment plan by determining which areas of your skin need the most help. During the actual treatment, he uses a handheld device to deliver ultrasound energy to the precise treatment area at the optimal temperature, which in turn stimulates collagen production to lift and tighten your skin.

Although you may notice an immediate effect, the overall results will take two or more months when your body’s natural collagen production kicks in.

More natural approach using your collagen

When it comes to sagging jowls, gravity is our enemy, but collagen is definitely our friend. One of the benefits of Ultherapy is that it leverages a natural process within our body that keeps skin firm and tight.

The problem with collagen is that as we get older we produce less. Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to deposit targeted energy deep within the skin to boost collagen production, which naturally lifts skin. More collagen equals firmer, tighter, more youthful skin. And that means no more sagging jowls and wrinkles.

Non-surgical, no toxins, no downtime

There are a wide variety of methods to lift skin around the jowls and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Some treatments involve injecting toxins while others are surgical procedures like facelifts.

Another plus for Ultherapy is that it’s noninvasive. In about an hour and within an office settingnot a surgical suitepatients can have firmer, tighter skin. The actual treatment time depends on the size of the treatment area.

Because Ultherapy is non-invasive, you can resume normal activities without any downtime. Although Ultherapy does produce similar effects as a facelift, it does so using a more gradual process that does not require surgery.

After the treatment, some patients may see a difference in their skin, but the real effects will unfold over the next two to three months. As if that weren’t enough, Ultherapy can also improve the firmness of skin on your eyebrows, neck, and chest area. All these areas can give away our age, but not with Ultherapy.
