Ultherapy is a great option for both men and women
If you have skin that is loose and saggy on your neck, face or brow, you may be able to tighten and firm it with Ultherapy. This treatment is a non-invasive procedure that does not carry the same risks as more invasive procedures.
If you are a man, you may not have thought about Ultherapy as a treatment option for you. However, men may enjoy terrific results with this treatment just the same as women might. This makes Ultherapy a good choice regardless of your gender if you want firmer and tighter skin.
Statistics and treatment results
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reports that 298,223 procedures aimed at tightening the skin were performed in the U.S. in 2014 alone. A large number of these procedures were performed on male patients. While some men may shy away from skin-tightening procedures, there is nothing wrong with men trying to maintain their youthful appearances for longer periods of time.
If you are a man who does not want to undergo surgery to tighten your skin, or if you simply want to put off getting a facelift for a few years, Ultherapy may be a great option for you to consider. This treatment has been shown in clinical trials to do the following:
- Tighten the skin
- Lift the skin
- Give added firmness to the skin
It is approved by the FDA for treating the skin on your neck, chest, face and brow. Your doctor may also be able to recommend it for an off-label treatment, according to his or her discretion.
How it works and what to expect
Ultherapy works by using ultrasound waves that penetrate your skin to its deeper layers. The ultrasound energy helps by tightening and firming the skin from the inside out.
The procedure may offer you results in about one or two hours, depending on your skin’s firmness and where you will be receiving treatment.
Since it is non-invasive, you should not have any downtime following Ultherapy, meaning that you can immediately resume your normal routine.
What are the results you can expect from Ultherapy?
The results from Ultherapy treatment are more subtle than the dramatic changes that people might get from a facelift. Many people see immediate differences following treatment. If your skin is saggier or looser, you may need multiple treatments. You may see improvements that occur slowly over a period lasting up to 90 days.
Ultherapy is a great treatment choice for men who don’t have the time to spend weeks recovering but who also want to slow the aging process. It is also a good choice for you if you want to achieve subtle results that will not lead to others noticing that you have undergone treatment. If you have good elasticity in your skin, Ultherapy may also be used in combination with liposuction of your chin and neck to remove added fat deposits that are located in those areas.
Like women, men also experience the aging process and the effects of gravity. Men do not have as many options to hide scars that may be left behind from facelifts, however. Women may hide scars more easily by growing their hair longer, using different hairstyles or hiding them behind their ears.
If you opt for a facelift, your doctor may still be able to hide your incisions, however. You will want to discuss your options with your doctor before deciding between the available treatment options. After a facelift, Ultherapy is a great choice for extending the benefits of the surgery.
