One of the most noticed, and complained about, skin conditions today is the presence of fine lines and wrinkles. Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process as the elastic bands in your skin begin to break down, hindering your skin’s ability to retain moisture. Simultaneously, the fat underneath our skin layers begins to deplete, eventually causing folds and creases in the skin, or wrinkles. There have been many advances made in just the last several years to minimize the look of wrinkles, from injections to dermal fillers to microdermabrasion. There are also effective means of preventing wrinkles from occurring in the first place, but the most important ways are simply to protect your skin by avoiding sun exposure and smoking.
One of the advances in technology that Advanced Skin and Laser Center utilizes is Ultherapy. Focused ultrasound energy is delivered non-invasively and heats deep tissue without affecting the surface of the skin. This causes a natural, regenerative response. Unlike other types of ultrasound, there will be a sensation of heat. After Ultherapy, weak collagen is reorganized and strengthened by the growth of new collagen, which tightens and lifts the skin. Ultherapy is the only non-invasive, FDA-approved procedure to lift the brow, chin, neck, and chest using ultrasound technology that stimulates elastin production deep within the skin. Working from the inside out, Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin to the same foundational layer typically addressed in a surgical facelift. Most clients see immediate results and there will be a continual tightening of the skin over the next 2-3 months.
