It’s impossible to stop the signs of aging, including skin laxity and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. This is why many men and women of the Seattle, Washington area consider the benefits of plastic surgery. However, Dr. Wayne Larrabee finds that not everyone is an ideal candidate for surgery. Instead, he may make recommendations for those with fine lines and wrinkle formulation such as Ultherapy.
How Ultherapy can address aging skin
As part of the natural process of aging, our skin begins to lose its elasticity due to the reduction of collagen and elastin. This causes sagging skin around the chin and jaw known as jowls, and causes fine lines and wrinkles to develop as well. At this point, many patients will visit with a plastic surgeon to determine if a facelift is right for them. For individuals who have mild to moderate skin laxity, Ultherapy may be recommended instead.
Ultherapy is an ultrasound treatment that is performed on the face to offer skin tightening solutions. The ultrasound energy stimulates the development of collage and elastin, and with time, provides a more youthful appearance to the face and skin. At the same time, it tightens the skin to improve the look of the skin.
Where can Ultherapy be used?
Most of our patient use Ultherapy to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin and tighten the facial skin, reducing the appearance of the jowls as well as wrinkles and folds. This method of skin tightening doesn’t require surgical intervention, making it a highly desirable treatment for both men and women looking to combat the signs of aging without going under the knife.
