Collagen keeps our skin filled and plump, while elastin keeps it bouncy. Our production of both slows down with age, causing brows to droop, skin to sag, and jawlines to lose definition, among other aging effects. One of the most lauded non-invasive skin lifting and tightening treatments that address these problems effectively is Ultherapy, and it's popular for a reason. It triggers collagen production using micro-focused ultrasound energy with realtime visualization. With this type of ultrasound energy, unlike radio frequencies and surgery, it can visualize deep within the layers of the skin and deliver safe, precise lifting. The procedure, through micro-wounding, triggers the skin to produce collagen and elastin at such specific areas. The results are instant and improve over time. And because results are so significant—it can turn back the clock by at least five years—it may be done just once every 12 to 18 months. As for how it feels, each zap feels like a warm tingling sensation underneath the skin. Those with a high threshold for pain will definitely manage and those who don't can always rely on topical anesthesia.
