Ultherapy For Eye Rejuvenation
They say eyes are the windows to the soul, and while the unique color of your eyes stays brilliant and alluring through each stage of life, the delicate skin around them will thin and sag. Thinning skin, sun damage, and years of facial expressions can age your face in unwanted ways. Thankfully there are non-surgical treatments available to rejuvenate and brighten the skin around your eyes and give your entire face a more youthful appearance. At Beatitude Aesthetic Medicine, one of our favorites is Ultherapy.
Harnessing the power of ultrasound
Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to heat the deeper layers of your skin and cause cells to contract, tighten, and lift, smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles. Ultherapy also stimulates collagen production to fill and smooth underneath the skin. When used for under-eye rejuvenation, the results are remarkable. You may be surprised by how treatment in this one small area can enhance the youthful appearance of your whole face. The full effects of Ultherapy are apparent after about 90 days—and because your appearance will improve gradually, no one will ever guess you had a cosmetic procedure!
Another upside: no downtime
Some non-surgical eye rejuvenation treatments still require downtime after the procedure and extensive after-care. But with Ultherapy, you’re in and out in no time (full face and neck treatments take about 45-60 minutes, with eye area-only treatments taking much less). Your skin might redden slightly for a few hours, but you won’t have to worry about lingering pain because there’s no pain in the first place. Some patients experience mild discomfort due mostly to the delicate nature of skin around the eyes, but this can be remedied with application of a topical numbing cream beforehand. Ask your Ultherapy provider if you think you may be more sensitive than most.
Unlike injectable eye rejuvenation procedures that fade within a year, Ultherapy results are virtually permanent. We say “virtually” because while the effects of the procedure don’t reverse, the aging process will still progress and new sagging can occur. That’s why many clients get subsequent procedures every 2-3 years, although the need for a refresher session will depend on several individual factors including age, genetics (responsible for skin elasticity), and habits (smoking, drinking, frequency of sun exposure).
