Advancing in age comes with benefits, such as wisdom, knowledge, stability, and financial security. The trivial matters that you wasted so much time on in your twenties have almost completely disappeared. You refuse to spend time with toxic people who drain you of all your energy, and you have no problem setting boundaries with people at work and in your personal life. Despite all these wonderful personal advances, your maturity has taken its toll on your skin. You want to look youthful, rested, and really just a better version of yourself. Maybe you’ve been hesitating to undergo any cosmetic procedures because you are turned off by the shiny, stretched plastic faces of women who took cosmetic procedures too far. Some medispas are absolutely terrifying because the entire staff appears as plastic as the stretched face of a Barbie doll. Tula Wellness & Aesthetics is more than just a medispa; we take an integrative approach to women’s healthcare to empower women to look and feel their absolute best. We are proud to offer Ultherapy® to our patients, which is commonly referred to as the “non-surgical facelift.” Ultherapy treats saggy skin that has lost some of its laxity.

What Causes Sagging Skin?

As you age, your skin produces less collagen and it loses some of its elastin. Collagen is a protein found in bones, muscles, skin, and tendons, and it is used to provide both structure and strength. Collagen and elastin work together to create firm skin, so the reduction of these building blocks results in saggy skin. Sun exposure and environmental pollutants also contribute to looser skin. As you age, you also lose some of the fat in your face, which results in skin laxity.

How Ultherapy Works

Approved by the FDA, Ulthera is a safe, non-surgical, and noninvasive treatment that works with the body’s own regenerative process to tighten the skin. The doctor assesses ultrasound images taken of the layers of tissue underneath the patient’s skin. The treatments use sound energy, which targets deep into the tissues of the skin and not just into its superficial layer. Sound energy may help the skin’s neocollagenesis process, which regenerates collagen production.

Who Would Benefit From Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is designed for people experiencing mild to moderate skin laxity, which basically refers to when the skin feels and appears less firm. Ultherapy can be used to target sagging underneath the chin, saggy skin surrounding the neck, and some of the wrinkling in the chest. If you are interested in Ultherapy treatments, then book a consultation with Tula Wellness & Aesthetics.

Does It Hurt?

Ultherapy is not painful, but you may experience a sensation of small amounts of sound energy penetrating deep into your skin. However, this feeling indicates that the process of regenerating collagen is working. This feeling only occurs during the application process of the treatment, and the comfort level varies from patient to patient.

If you would like to experience a more youthful, vibrant appearance, then Ultherapy might be for you. Contact our Tucson medispa to book a consultation today.
