Did you know there’s a way you can dramatically minimize facial and neck skin laxity, sagging, lines, and wrinkles with just one non-invasive treatment? VIDA offers Ultherapy, an innovative means of looking years younger, healthier, and happier. Ultherapy can even delay the need for a facelift by several years, with results lasting an average of three years. VIDA is led by Medical Director Dr. Glen Jarosz who personally trains and supervises every staff member, including each CAE-certified esthetician. If you’re looking for results that really wow but are not interested in invasive or repeated procedures, Ultherapy could be for you.
It is the only FDA-approved treatment to non-surgically lift and tighten the face, neck, and chest skin. Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy that penetrates to the deepest layer of the skin. This tells the body to start producing a rush of collagen in the treated area. As the thermal energy delves into the skin, collagen production begins—and it continues for up to three months post-treatment. This means you will see results shortly after your session, but the results will continue to get better and better for three months.
The Importance of Collagen
Collagen is sometimes dubbed the skin’s framework, and it’s a critical protein for skin health and appearance. You can find collagen just about everywhere in the body. However, we make less of it as we age and that’s a big reason of why skin shows imperfections as the years go by. This results in lines, wrinkles, sagging, and the inherent emotional factors that work alongside this such as lowered self-esteem and confidence.
If you aren’t 100 percent happy with what you see in the mirror, there’s a very good chance this is due to a lack of collagen. Ultherapy turns back the clock, making your body synthesize more collagen or similar levels to the ones produced when you were younger. It’s a quick way to achieve gorgeous, youthful skin with just one treatment. Appointments last 30 – 90 minutes depending on the treatment sites and there’s no downtime. This means you can immediately get back to your day without having to worry about taking time off work or avoiding Zoom social calls.
Sustaining Results with Skin Tightening
Although the results of Ultherapy can last up to three years, many clients prefer to schedule maintenance sessions every 6 – 12 months. This is a great way to keep the results you’ve achieved. Ultherapy is a fantastic solution for mild to moderate skin laxity, and along with appointments being quick and easy the upkeep required is relatively simple.
Am I A Good Candidate for Ultherapy?
Probably! You can find out during a complimentary consultation where your skin will be evaluated. We’ll make note of areas that could benefit from Ultherapy and devise a customized treatment plan just for you. There is very little prep work for the treatment itself, which is another bonus. You probably won’t need to stop taking any medications or stop using any topical skin treatments prior to Ultherapy (and of course never stop medications without discussing it with your GP first).
It’s important to drink plenty of water so your skin is hydrated, as that also supports collagen production after Ultherapy. Protecting your skin from UV rays is also essential, both before Ultherapy and at all times. Ultherapy can be used on any skin color, condition, and type, and it can be a great solution for younger clients who want to get a head start on battling the signs of aging. It is also popular for those in their 30s and 40s who have started to think about a facelift but don’t want the risks, downtime, and incision marks that come with a surgical procedure.
If you have noticed loose skin, lines, or wrinkles on your face, neck, or chest, there’s a good chance Ultherapy is the solution for you.
Your Ultherapy Experience
On the day of your appointment, skin is cleansed and prepped with an ultrasound gel. Next, a special applicator is glided across the treatment site. You might feel the energy permeating the skin, but the sensation is brief and most often described as a tingling sensation. Numbing creams and other agents are typically not necessary for Ultherapy, as it is such a gentle yet powerful treatment.
