Skin laxity is a natural process that affects just about everyone after a certain age. Taking good care of the skin can allow the process of skin aging to slow down but cannot eliminate it altogether. Once a person has sagging skin, it is a downwards road and the appearance of the face is somewhat tired.
Ultherapy in Saudi Arabia is a treatment option that works wonders in getting rid of sagging skin. Since it is a noninvasive treatment, it does the job without any cuts or sutures being involved. Like other parts of the world, the demand for the treatment is quite high in Saudi Arabia as well. Laser Skin Care each year gets a large number of patients from Saudi Arabia who wish to seek this treatment.
Dubai Laser Treatment is currently considering opening its branch in Saudi Arabia as well. In the meantime, the treatment can be had at our Dubai facilities.
In the following lines, we shall learn about Ultherapy and how it helps a person in getting rid of sagging skin.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy in Saudi Arabia is a treatment that works by bring to use ultrasound waves. The mechanism of work is quite simple. The sound waves bypass the top layers of the skin and work at deeper level to improve the level of collagen in the skin. They do so with the help of the sound energy converting into heat energy and providing the right set of circumstances for the skin to start producing this critical protein.
Is it painful?
The procedure is not painful and there is barely any discomfort. The most pain felt is similar to that of a light rubber band snapping against the skin. To numb down any such sensations, a cooling gel can be applied prior to the treatment. To make it even more comfortable, cool air may be blown during the treatment.
Is a single treatment enough?
Like most noninvasive treatments, numerous sessions of treatment are needed to achieve the desired results. Some results can be seen soon after the first treatment as the level of collagen goes up. The exact number of sessions will vary in each case and your doctor can give an idea after taking all factors into account.
What are the side effects and downtime?
The side effects are mild and temporary. Some itching, welling and redness is quite common. Tenderness to touch in the treated area can also take place. In rare cases, bruising can take place which is temporary. Photosensitivity is developed and avoidance of the sun after the treatment is very important. When going out during the day, wear a sunscreen with high SPF and also don a large floppy hat to avoid the effects of harmful UV rays.
The treatment is considered as a lunchtime procedure and there is no downtime. The person can get back to his or her routine as soon as the treatment is completed. It is, however, not a bad idea to rest for a day or so after the treatment.
Can it replace surgical facelift?
The results from the treatment are fantastic but may not be as good as the surgical facelift. However, considering that there is no downtime and very little side effects makes it a very appealing option. The facelift also carries a serious risk of infection which is absent in Ultherapy. We can conclude that Ultherapy overall offers a better value than its surgical counterpart.
