As professionals, we want to look and feel our best when networking and conducting business. Our overall wellness affects our skin in positive and negative ways, as healthy skin begins from the inside out. Adequate sleep, proper nutrition, exercise, and stress management must not be sacrificed or ignored. A busy lifestyle and self-neglect can accelerate the aging process and render the skin dull and acne prone. Putting our best face forward requires intentional care, and today’s technology can provide a natural, youthful look combined with proper lifestyle choices.
With aging, the skin of the face and neck loses its elasticity as well as volume. The problems facing aging skin can now be addressed without surgery through the use of Ultherapy, a non-invasive technology that uses ultrasound energy to promote the remodeling of the skin’s collagen.
NO FACELIFT NEEDED
Ultherapy works deep below the skin’s surface, and it is a great alternative for those who are not ready for a facelift, who want natural results, and who want to reverse skin laxity of the face, neck, and décolleté. It provides a brow lift, reduces puffiness under the eyes, lifts the cheeks, minimizes the laugh lines and jowls, and tightens the skin on the neck and the chest.
Results are noticed about two to three months after therapy, as the deep collagen—the foundation of youthful skin—begins to rebuild. The more collagen produced, the tighter the skin.
In the before and after photos, there has been a marked improvement particularly in the eye, jowl, and neck areas.
This technology was introduced about 10 years ago. Now, with over one million treatments performed, it has evolved over the last four years, providing a comfortable and customized therapy that allows the physician to directly visualize the deep skin while performing the procedure.
Ultherapy provides that all-important lift to restore a more youthful and rested look without looking over done. Ultherapy also can be paired with fillers such as Radiesse, Bellafill, Voluma, Juvederm, and Restylane for full restoration of volume loss.
To help maintain results, a topical skin care regimen is imperative. Sunscreen should be worn daily. A cleanser with glycolic or salicylic acid should be used twice a day. Aging skin also requires a retinol and vitamin C to help promote healthy skin turnover and antioxidant protection. A customized plan can be developed for any skin type. Dr. Katina Byrd Miles
