For a long time, you always looked younger than your stated age, but the sands of time seem to be catching up with you on this end. The thing is that you do not want to be left behind. But you are not sure how to reclaim the youthful face and neck you are losing to the influence of time and gravity. Of course, you could always get a facelift, but you may not be ready for that. Surely, there must be a way to restore your youthful looks. Well, as fate would have it, you are in luck. Modern science has been hard at work at producing a newer procedure called Ultherapy®, and it is starting to become a popular alternative to the full-on facelift for many men and women in San Jose and elsewhere.

What is Ultherapy®?

You are undoubtedly familiar with having an ultrasound, but an ultrasound for looking at unborn children is not the only time ultrasound energy is being used in medical procedures today. While taking a closer look at the dermis layer of skin of your neck and face, the technician also using the power of ultrasound energy to heat up the dermis layer of skin that resides beneath the epidermis (top layer of skin). When we use an ultrasound device to heat this layer of skin up, it provokes and stimulates the body to respond with a healing process that creates more collagen and elastin proteins.

This is good news for people who have wrinkles and fine lines because this extra collagen and elastin helps to fill and raise the top layer of skin. As a result, the wrinkles and fine lines fade considerably as the face and neck start looking more youthful again. This collagen and elastin production continues for the following months, making the results improve over time.

You might be shocked to learn that one of the main reasons people in San Jose love Ultherapy® is because it has virtually no recovery time. In fact, most people can have the procedure done and return to their daily activities the very same day. This is good news for people who want to achieve a significant lift to the skin of their face and neck, but do not have days or weeks to spend in recovery.
