Ultherapy in Rancho Mirage and Palm Springs, CA
As you age, your skin will noticeably begin to produce less collagen, resulting in more wrinkles, fine lines, and facial sagging. However, Dr. Sofonio provides Ultherapy for patients in the Rancho Mirage and Palm Springs area who are looking to tighten and rejuvenate their skin without a surgical facelift. Utilizing sophisticated ultrasound technology, Ultherapy stimulates collagen production for more youthful-looking skin.
* Please Note: Individual results may vary.
How Ultrasound Waves Work to Reduce Facial Wrinkles
Using high-energy ultrasound waves to heat your skin’s tissues, this technology is capable of heating up to three tissue layers of your skin simultaneously, resulting in tighter skin. Because they’re able to penetrate more deeply than lasers, radiofrequency, and many other common types of skin rejuvenation treatments, ultrasound technology is gaining in popularity. Thanks to advanced ultrasound imaging, we’re able to target precisely and at the correct depth with minimal effects on your skin’s surrounding tissues. Treatment sessions may take anywhere from 60-90 minutes with minimal downtime required.
Post-Treatment Care and Results from Ultherapy
Many patients report minimal to no discomfort during the procedure with minor side effects afterward, which may include swelling, bruising, and tenderness. Temporary numbness and hyperpigmentation issues have also been reported as side effects, though they’re extremely rare. You should immediately notice a healthy glow after treatment since the ultrasound waves stimulate your blood flow. It may take a few months to notice the full results, as it takes a little bit of time for your collagen production to start.
