Non-Surgical Skin Lifting Combination Treatment: Ultherapy and Tripollar
Aging skin that has undergone the ravages of time usually appear tried and droopy. Although sagging skin is a sign of natural aging process, there are several factors that may contribute to premature skin aging. Some contributing factors of sagging skin are detailed below:
AGING When you become older, your skin loses the ability to generate collagen and elastin, the important components of the skin’s connective tissue, that keep your skin looking soft and plump. Your facial muscles also weaken and cause your skin to sag over time. The weight of the sagging skin and weak facial muscles are pulled down by gravity, forming deep lines and wrinkles to appear on your face, making you look tired and unattractive.
SUN EXPOSURE Regular sun exposure is one of the leading causes for premature aging and sagging skin. The UV rays from the sun damage skin cells and inhibits the production of collagen and elastin. Although you may be young in terms of age, constant exposure to the sun will increase the effects of aging, which can lead to saggy skin and wrinkles.
RAPID WEIGHT LOSS Weight fluctuation may cause your skin to sag. People who lose a lot of weight quickly without giving their bodies ample time to adjust may find excess skin that is left sagging after all their hard work has paid off for losing the excess weight.
Skin Tightening Treatment For Sagging Skin
Ulthera Skin Lifting targets your skin in the deeper layers using high intensity focused ultrasound, heating your skin from inside out. It works by delivering small, controlled amounts of ultrasound energy into deep layers of the skin without heating the superficial layers of the skin. As soon as the heat is delivered to the Superficial Muscular Aproneurotic System (SMAS), your skin reacts by contracting slightly immediately. Over the next 2 to 3 months, new collagen will grow and gradual tightening will occur, resulting in a natural lift of your facial skin – non-surgically.
Tripollar, on the other hand, delivers 3rd generation radiofrequency waves, treating the superficial and mid layers of your skin to induce collagen contraction and tightening. Tripollar works by delivering focused radiofrequency waves to the skin surface and subcutaneous fat layer. The heat that is delivered to the skin and fat layer stimulates collagen regeneration and shrinks fat cells at the same time. Tripollar technology is also able to treat fine lines and delicate areas of the skin without causing any damage such as around the eyes and corners of the mouth.
The result is total anti-aging and rejuvenation of all layers of your skin.
