As people get older, their skin loses its firmness and becomes looser. This can leave people feeling insecure about their appearance and prompt them to investigate what options are available to them. Deciding to improve the appearance of your skin can leave you feeling more youthful and confident in yourself. At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic we have several treatments available that can help improve your skin’s appearance, and amongst these is Ultherapy in London.
Sometimes, we will recommend that you have this treatment alongside various other treatments, to make sure that all areas of your skin look as youthful as possible, however, sometimes people will opt to have this treatment by itself. There is no recovery time with this treatment either, so you can get back to your daily routine as soon as you leave the clinic.
Are you self-conscious about your chin and neck?
As you age, the skin around your neck and chin is prone to wrinkling, and even sagging in some places. Ultherapy in London can help you to reduce these ageing problems and keep your skin looking young and healthy. It can also help to decrease the presence of wrinkles on several areas of the face, so it is important to discuss what areas you wish to target with our professionals at your consultation appointment.
How many treatment sessions you will need will depend on your individual situation. Our professionals will consider how many areas you wish to target and how much treatment you will require to get the best results for you. Your age will also play a part in this, as the natural ageing process is something that must be taken into consideration. Treatment time itself is normally between sixty and ninety minutes, but this varies depending on the size of the area being treated.
A straightforward, non-invasive treatment
Ultherapy in London is where micro-focused ultrasound, with visualisation, is used to stimulate the skin’s collagen from deep within. It creates a thermal reaction just beneath the skin’s surface and stimulates the production of new collagen. As you age, your body’s natural supply of collagen will start to diminish, and your skin will no longer be able to defy gravity as well as it once did.
Results will not be instantly visible. Whilst you will probably notice an initial lift in your skin, the real results will become noticeable to you between three and six months after you have had treatment. By this time, your body will have had time to produce more collagen, and your skin will have gradually lifted. For up to a year after you have had this treatment, your skin will contain fresh collagen and look visibly firmer and more youthful. After this, if you want your skin to stay tight and firm, it is important to make an appointment with one of our professionals, so that we can help you maintain your results. We will be able to advise you on how often you should be making an appointment with us and what areas need to be targeted.
