6 Benefits of Skin Tightening

Skin is your largest organ and the one that shows its age the most. Facial wrinkles, sagging, and other imperfections start to appear as you get older, and it can affect how you feel and present yourself. Luckily, there are ways to slow down the appearance of aging and tighten skin that’s beginning to lose elasticity and volume. 

At Sylvan Weight Loss and Aesthetics in Fresno, California, our team utilizes the ultrasound therapy system known as Ultherapy®. This non-invasive treatment tightens skin without incisions or injections, making it the perfect choice for those looking for painless results.  

Benefits of nonsurgical HIFU skin tightening 

Many aesthetic practices involve surgery, needles, or other less-than-enjoyable methods of treatment. If you’re skittish about pain or side effects, it may make you hesitant to seek out beneficial skin tightening treatment

High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a technologically advanced treatment option for those who want to avoid traditional facelift surgery. In addition to tightening, toning, and firming your skin, Ultherapy provides the following perks: 

1. No downtime 

Unlike surgery, the Ultherapy system comes with no lasting side effects, so there’s no downtime. You can go back to work or relaxation immediately after treatment.

2. Minimal discomfort

Skin tightening using this method is painless, and the sensations you feel during treatment will be far less unpleasant than those of surgery or injections. 

3. Fewer complications

There’s no chance of infection with Ultherapy, and your chance of experiencing side effects is extremely low. The device simply targets and contracts your superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS), the structural muscle network under your your facial and neck skin. Think of it as a workout for your face!

4. Natural results

Because the HIFU therapy is encouraging your body’s natural healing response, your results will appear all-natural. Ultherapy has been successfully used for 1.5 million people worldwide, as a holistic approach to skin tightening.

5. Slowed aging process

The device heats tissues as deep as 5 mm under the skin, boosting your flagging collagen production and giving your face the rejuvenation you desire.

6. Convenient treatments

Your Ultherapy treatments won’t last longer than one or two hours, and you can go in for these sessions on a schedule that’s convenient for you. 

Candidates for Ultherapy

If you’re unhappy with the texture and appearance of your skin, you might benefit from targeted ultrasound therapy. The results might not be as fast or obvious as surgery or injections, but this gentler form of treatment focuses on producing natural, lasting results.
