Am I a Good Candidate for Ultherapy?

Skin tends to degrade as it ages. It can develop undesirable features that may be considered damage by us, but slip past the body’s definition of needing repair. This can lead to persistent conditions that make you look older and less attractive than you could.

Ultherapy® represents a new step in rejuvenating the skin. It utilizes a non-surgical approach designed to treat the anatomical imperfections that lead to loose, damaged and deteriorated skin.

What is Ultherapy®?

This procedure utilizes ultrasonic waves to transmit energy beneath the surface of the skin. This allows for collagen problems to be succinctly solved without the need for invasive surgery, uncomfortable recoveries or cumbersome approaches that interfere with your daily life. The ultrasonic waves pass harmlessly through the skin until they reach tissue that has a certain target density. In most treatments, this will be the collagen structures that reside deep beneath the skin.

The waves transform into vibrations and heat, which in turn causes loose and undesirable collagen structures to begin breaking down. The body views these structures as damaged, removes the old cells and begins to regrow new collagen that is denser and healthy. This is what gives Ultherapy® the ability to tighten the skin without surgery.

Who is an Ideal Candidate?

There are a few pieces of criteria that any patient seeking Ultherapy® should have before proceeding with the procedure. These include:

These factors should be placed in the patient’s favor before Ultherapy® begins. This enables the treatment to be more effective, provide stable long-term results and prevent potential complications from arising. Additional factors that may make Ultherapy® more ideal for a candidate include:

Ideal candidates tend to be younger, but it is worth noting that older patients can see results from Ultherapy®. This means that chronological age is less of a factor than physical age.
