It is natural for many of us to worry about our skin, in terms of how it looks, and whether or not it is lustreless. If you feel that your skin does not quite look as healthy as it did or that it does not fit you as well as you would like it to, possibly you feel it sagging in some places, then there are several surgical options you could choose from to try and improve how your skin looks and feels. If, however, you would prefer a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure that is designed to tighten up your skin, then you may wish to consider getting Ultherapy in London. If you’ve not heard of this treatment before, then don’t worry, you’re not alone, as it is a relatively new type of treatment. But by reading through this article, and thus being able to understand more about the Ultherapy procedure and how it works, then hopefully you will have more information to help you decide whether or not Ultherapy in London is the right kind of treatment for you.
If you do end up wishing to have Ultherapy in London, then why not consider The Cosmetic Skin Clinic.

What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a skin lifting treatment, and it is primarily designed to help lift skin around the neck, the brow, the chin and the décolletage (the lower neckline). It uses a form of ultrasound known as micro-focused ultrasound in order to work. The use of micro-focused ultrasound is a large part of the reason that surgery is not required for this procedure. Ultherapy is unique, as at the time of writing it is the only non-surgical cosmetic procedure which utilises ultrasound in this way. Furthermore, this procedure allows your Ultherapy practitioner to look beneath the skin and see the layers of tissue that they and you wish to target to be lifted. This usually results in very effective results from the treatment, including a more sculpted jawline and cheekbones appearing more lifted.
How does it work?
As mentioned above, Ultherapy uses micro-focused ultrasound (sometimes abbreviated to MFU-V). Ultherapy’s use of micro-focused ultrasound allows it to generate a thermal effect underneath the skin, and does not require any invasive procedure to take place. This thermal effect stimulates your body into producing more collagen and elastin, both of which are very important for your skin to maintain both its tightness and elasticity. Over time, the existing collagen and elastin in your body can become damaged and depleted, and this is a natural process which happens to all of us. Ultherapy is designed to help replenish this collagen and elastin, and thus restore a fresh level of structure to your skin.
So, if you wish to have more elasticity and more of a tight structure in your skin, and would prefer a non-surgical treatment, then consider getting Ultherapy in London at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic.
