Those unwanted lines and wrinkles that tend to show up on your face as time goes by may have you wondering if there are any effective ways to reduce them without forcing you to undergo a surgical procedure. Many people who would love to have a more youthful look will elect to endure the effects of aging as opposed to deciding to have surgery. If you are one of these individuals, you should not give up. Ulthera treatments may be just what you need.

Ulthera is a therapy that uses ultrasound energy to tighten the skin and bring about a more youthful look in a non-surgical way. It does so by accelerating the growth of collagen in order to restore the skin to a former level of fullness and tightness.

Collagen is a protein that is found in the lower layers of the skin. It serves the purpose of holding tissue together and giving skin fullness. If the levels of the substance drop, the skin will loosen. As you age, the levels do indeed drop. The body starts to decrease its rate of production. The result is the formation of lines and wrinkles, often accompanied by sagging of the jowls. These are among the most common signs of aging that people want to reverse.

Warming the deeper layers of skin tissue will stimulate the production of collagen. The growth of the substance is a gradual process that will take place over the course of months. If you want a therapy that is gentle, free from side effects and complications yet effective, you should check into Ulthera. The high-frequency sound waves it uses are the same as what you may have already been exposed to if you have had an ultrasound done for imaging purposes. There is no discomfort caused by the treatment, nor will there be any risks.

The ultrasound energy emitted during Ulthera treatment gently warms the tissue. It also provides an advantage that other treatment methods cannot. Because ultrasound is an imaging tool, the professional who is delivering the therapy will be able to take advantage of that.

Adjustments can be made as needed in order to deliver the therapy to precisely the right places. That way, there is no guesswork involved in determining if the therapy was effective.
