Ultherapy Body Treatment
For Skin Laxity on Stomach, Butt, Thighs, Knees
When we hear the words “body contouring without surgery”, we tend to think about fat removal or getting rid of cellulite. However, certain complaints about the body have nothing to do with how much fat we carry. We’re talking specifically about loose, wrinkly and saggy skin that happens as we age. That’s where Ultherapy Body Contouring holds a distinct advantage. It’s highly effective for skin tightening on the stomach, butt, thighs or knees, regardless of your weight. Here’s why Ultherapy Body Treatment might be the body contouring solution you’re looking for:
What is Ultherapy? How Does Ultherapy Work?
Put simply, Ultherapy encourages Collagen and Elastin production, which provide support for the skin. Specifically, a criss-cross network of collagen sits at the dermis level of the skin. This scaffold anchors the skin and provides it with a sturdy structure. Collagen works in tandem with Elastin. Specifically, Elastin is a protein in the connective tissue that assures our skin’s elasticity — that’s how quickly it bounces back to its original shape after stretching or contracting.
Ultherapy works to heat the skin at the dermis level of the skin and spark neocollagenesis and elastin remodeling. This has particular benefit, if you’re looking for skin tightening on the body due to:
- Weight loss,
- The natural course of aging.
Ultherapy Body: Why Does Ultherapy Body Contouring Work for the Body?
In general, Ultherapy is the gold standard for skin tightening. In fact, it’s the only FDA-cleared, noninvasive procedure specifically indicated for skin tightening on the face. Currently, Ultherapy body treatment is off-label treatment. However, Merz, the makers of Ultherapy, are in the process of designing studies to prepare for FDA consideration of Ultherapy body treatments.
Specifically, Ultherapy is the most targeted non-invasive treatment for skin tightening. It uses safe, time-tested ultrasound to bypass the surface of the skin, depositing tiny amounts of energy to clearly-defined depths under the skin. Three transducer allow the practitioner to target the depth of treatment to 1.5 mm, 3.0 mm and 4.5 mm beneath the skin. This works to improve:
- Saggy skin
- Wrinkly skin
- Skin laxity
- Crepey skin
Why is Ultherapy Body Contouring a Good Treatment for Skin Laxity and Skin Texture?
The superior level of control offers a distinct advantage for discrete areas of the body. Specifically, each body area varies in terms of its composition of fat and muscle (think knee area vs. buttocks, for example). Further, each patient has their own individual ratio of fat to muscle. Ultherapy offers multiple, targeted options in terms of the depth and density of treatment — going beyond a one-size-fits all approach to skin tightening on the body. To illustrate further:
Ultherapy Knee Treatment
Generally, requires a shallower depth of treatment, either 1.5 mm or 3.0 mm transducer.
Ultherapy Buttocks Treatment
Requires an examination to assess whether connective tissue is no more than 4.5 mm under the skin.
Ultherapy Thigh Treatment
Sometimes requires use of all three transducers, in order to achieve best results.
