As women age, many begin to notice the unmistakable signs of aging on their faces. It is normal for women to lose volume in their skin and for it to droop and sag.
Fortunately, some treatments are available that can help women to enhance their appearance and rejuvenate themselves.
Before considering surgery, there are some non-surgical fillers that may be used, but lifting and tightening the skin may also be necessary for more natural results.
Skin lifting and tightening
One of the hallmarks of aging facial skin is the sagging appearance it can have. This is caused by a natural loss of collagen as women age. Collagen is a substance that has several functions in skin, including the following:
- Makes the skin stronger
- Helps to replace dead skin cells
- Provides structure to the skin
It is easy to understand how losing collagen through aging can leave women with facial skin that is more fragile and that droops.
While surgery may be one option for skin lifting and tightening, there are some non-surgical options that women may want to choose instead. One of these treatment alternatives is called Ultratherapy. This treatment involves the delivery of ultrasound energy deep into the skin to help it produce collagen. It targets the same dermal layers that are targeted by surgeons when they are performing surgical rejuvenations.
When Ultratherapy is used to reach the deeper layers, it helps to lift the area gradually. It can be used on the neck and jowl areas as well as on the face. Ultratherapy may also be used to target the upper layers of the skin, giving it a smoother appearance.
Gradual change without downtime
A good benefit of choosing Ultratherapy over a surgical facelift is that women will not suffer any downtime after the procedure. The changes are also gradual so that women who want to keep their treatment secret may do so.
Women who would prefer an immediate change to their appearance may want to choose a different treatment option such as a Silhouette Soft thread lift, which offers changes that are almost instantly noticeable.
Whichever treatment that women choose, they can combine it with their dermal fillers and Botox for the best results. With the modern treatments that are available, surgery may not be a necessary choice for women who want to retain the beauty and youthful appearance of their skin.
