Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment that tightens the skin using ultrasound technology. It’s quickly becoming one of the most requested treatments at VIDA. Ultherapy is effective in two ways. It creates heat energy that can target various levels of the skin while also encouraging collagen production at the target site. Most people expect some level of skin laxity, sagging, and wrinkling as they age and for these clients Ultherapy quickly restores a youthful, taut appearance for approximately two years. However, there is another group of people who also love Ultherapy.
As you were losing a significant amount of weight, maybe nobody told you that reducing the fat was just part of the challenge. There is an inherent skin laxity that happens to those who have experienced extreme weight fluctuations throughout life or who have achieved a big amount of weight loss in a short period of time. This is frustrating because you’ve done all the hard work, but you still don’t have the body you want and deserve. For some people, skin laxity can be just as frustrating as excess fat. Ultherapy can help.
Ultherapy for Skin Laxity
Ultherapy is a powerful tool for those who aren’t good candidates for more invasive and aggressive procedures (such as a tummy tuck to remove sagging abdominal skin). The results of Ultherapy are astounding, and you can get a sneak peek at what to expect in our photo gallery. It tones, tightens, and provides a youthful appearance virtually anywhere on the body.
People who are postpartum can also benefit from Ultherapy. Pregnancy and childbirth demand a very quick fluctuation of the skin, and this often results in crepe-like skin that simply doesn’t respond to moisturizing and other topical approaches. If you are post-partum and want to restore the tautness to your skin, Ultherapy can help.
However, do keep in mind that Ultherapy is not permanent. It is not a surgery, which means there is no downtime. It is considered a semi-permanent solution, as it lasts a couple of years, and you will want to schedule another session 48 months after your initial sessions. It does last for quite awhile, making it a fantastic option for those who want to avoid the risks and costs of surgery but still want to get phenomenal results.
