Sun exposure, lifestyle choices, time, and genetics are a few of many factors that can affect aging. Some of these factors we have direct control over and some we do not. For example, as individuals we begin to lose collagen starting at 21 years of age; by 40 the loss is 1% per year! As we age the existing collagen fibers weaken, resulting in a loss of elasticity. Some of the first signs of aging you may see in the mirror are fine lines around the eyes and mouth and wrinkles in various places which begin to deepen over time. Other signs like droopy cheeks and sagging skin around the eyes, neck, lower face, and jowls can also occur.
Once upon a time, skin laxity could only be treated with surgery. Now we have Ultherapy, which delivers ultrasound energy safely and non invasively to different layers of the skin to stimulate the growth of new collagen and firm weak collagen fibers. Not only is it a great way to rewind the clock, Ultherapy is an ideal treatment to slow down the aging process as well, aiding in avoiding future procedures and helping maintain your natural beauty!
This procedure not only tightens the face, neck, chin, and brow, but also improves lines and wrinkles on the face, neck, eyes, lips and chest. Ultherapy is also customized to each individual based on their age, severity of skin laxity and individual goals for anti-aging. The results will normally peak 3-4 months post treatment with an average of 15-25% improvement in tightening! For longer lasting results, NeoCutis Micro Firm Neck and Decollete is a fantastic cream containing a concentrated blend of ingredients packed with antioxidants and moisturizers as well as exfoliating properties to encourage cell turnover for a smooth and radiant appearance.
