Is Aging Optional?

At a certain point in each of our lives, the first signs of aging show up. From wrinkles and unwanted creases to fine lines and crow’s feet, the process is rarely something welcomed with open arms. These changes to the face can often make us look more tired, worried, and sometimes more angry than we really feel. While aging is inevitable, there are things we can do to prevent it for a while longer. To counter the aging process, there have been many surgical and non-surgical treatments available, but none as non-invasive or cutting edge as Ulthera!

At the CENTER, we offer the latest Ulthera technology, a treatment that involves no needles or surgery, but great results! Ulthera is quickly growing in popularity as one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the U.S.

How Ulthera Works

Ulthera utilizes ultrasound technology to identify the loose tissue beneath the skins surface. Next, Ulthera sends energy, to the desired treatment area. This energy heats, to lift and tighten the loose skin without affecting the skin’s surface. This initial tightening is the first effect you will notice from the Ulthera treatment, the second of which is the stimulation of your body’s own creation of new collagen. Collagen not only helps create a smoother skin surface, but also provides volume and fullness to the skin. In essence, this stimulation will continue to help your skin achieve and maintain a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Because Ulthera affects the deeper elements of your skin, it is safe and compatible with other rejuvenation procedures such as laser treatments and injectable fillers. Often times, Dr. Azizzadeh recommends a combination treatment of SCULPThera, which uses Sculptra to add volume back to the skin, while the Ulthera tightens lax skin. This duo treatment combats both laxity and volume loss, resulting in a natural and youthful appearance.

How Long Does an Ulthera Treatment Take?

Ulthera is a relatively quick procedure; the treatment itself takes only about an hour. The most dramatic changes will be visible in the following months as your body responds to the new collagen growth. Ulthera cannot replace the drastic transformations surgical treatments can offer. However, for those experiencing the early signs of aging, Ulthera can be a wonderful treatment which requires little to no down time and the treatment can rejuvenate your skins appearance long term, keeping it looking healthy and beautiful.
