Loose, sagging facial skin can have a big impact on your appearance. It can lead to many of the common signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines, thinning texture, and uneven tone. But now you can safely and efficiently tighten and lift lax skin with a combination of Ultherapy® and ThermiSmooth® treatments at Burgess Plastic Surgery.
What Causes Sagging Skin?
There are two key components to firm, youthful-looking skin—collagen (the protein that holds your skin together), and elastin, which gives your skin the ability to return to normal after being stretched. Unfortunately, as the years go by, your natural levels of these two important elements begin to decline. Your body’s capacity to produce new collagen starts to decrease at a rate of one percent or more each year after your mid 20s. Elastin production is slowed even sooner, usually around puberty, and by the time you hit middle age, your body creates very little, if any, new elastin.
Reverse the Effects of Aging Skin
Fortunately, you don’t have to live with lax skin that’s robbing you of your youthful appearance. You can replenish the critical building blocks of a healthy exterior with a powerful combination of skin-tightening treatments at Burgess Plastic Surgery. By layering Ultherapy and ThermiSmooth together, your skin will look firmer and healthier without the need for surgery.
Non-Invasive Lifting Combination
Ultherapy is the only non-surgical treatment approved by the Food and Drug Administration to lift and tighten sagging skin and reduce wrinkles on the neck, under the chin, around the eyebrow, and on the décolletage. This dermal regenerator uses ultrasound energy to boost collagen levels deep in the dermis, delivering its skin-rejuvenating benefits exactly where they’re needed most.
Non-invasive ThermiSmooth relies on radio frequency to gently heat the skin to stimulate the production of new collagen. This action sparks a lifting and smoothing effect to the forehead (brows), cheeks, mouth, and neck areas.
Put together, these two innovative technologies can provide you with the most significant lifting effect you can get without going under the knife.
Tightening Takes Time
While combining Ultherapy and ThermiSmooth can give you the dramatic results you’re looking for, it does take some time. New collagen isn’t formed over night, but rather over the course of several months. These two modalities encourage lifting and contracting for up to six months after treatment. For the best possible outcome, only one treatment of Ultherapy and a series of three to six ThermiSmooth treatments is recommended.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Just about anyone who would like to firm up and rejuvenate the skin on their forehead (brows), eyes, cheeks, mouth, and neck areas can reap the rewards of an Ultherapy and ThermiSmooth combination. Whether you want to reverse the signs of aging later in life or you’re just starting to notice the effects of lax skin, layering Ultherapy and ThermiSmooth treatments can provide the most refreshing and revitalizing results.
