Is combination skin really a combination? According to the Merriam-Webster…
Sagging, wrinkly skin is never fun when you’re trying to maintain a soft, tight, youthful appearance, and it can be frustrating when you do everything you can think of, from masks to wrinkle creams to collagen, and you still don’t have the results you want. One thing that some people will turn to in this situation is a face-lift, which can be very effective, but also painful and damaging. For anyone who’s sick of their skin sagging, but doesn’t want to deal with the risks and recovery that come with surgery, there is—it turns out—another option. As it happens, ultrasounds (yes, the same thing used to check on pregnant mothers’ babies, search for tumors, and other medical purposes) have amazing potential for skin tightening that most people don’t think about, and today, Vine Vera’s going to discuss that potential.
Ultrasound for Skin Tightening?
It’s not an obvious association, but ultrasound machines are, in fact, quite capable of totally transforming your skin without any need for a scalpel, though what’s known as Ultrasound Therapy. While usually used for scanning purposes to take a look inside your body in a quick-and-easy, non-invasive way, the waves emitted from an ultrasound, when strategically focused on certain area, can actually firm up your flesh by boosting your collagen production. The therapy also includes ultrasound imaging to take a look at your flesh to determine where best to focus the ultrasound therapy for the greatest effect.
As an alternative to the more traditional face-lift, you might imagine that ultrasound therapy would be much, much less invasive than surgery, and you’d be right! Considering no scalpel will ever have to touch your face, Ultrasound Therapy could easily be considered not invasive at all. The small disadvantage to this kind of therapy, though, is that it takes several repeated sessions to work, and will gradually improve your skin over time. That’s not really too bad of a downside when you consider that you can get stellar results with no pain, however.
Safe and Effective
Possibly the best part about getting Ultrasound Therapy is that you know it’s going to be safe. Ultrasound machines have been a big part of medicine for ages, and have been established as completely safe, thus why you can see them being used so often and for so many applications. And it’s not just safe, it’s safe and effective! With repeated treatments, you’ll be able to see and feel your skin firming up and regaining its elasticity. And the results only improve over time, so your skin will keep getting better and better with Ultrasound Therapy.
