A new year is often the time to take stock of your health and adopt habits that improve your quality of life. I think that’s especially true for 2021. Exercise and hobbies are often at the top of the list for New Year’s resolutions, but it’s also a good time to reassess your skin’s health and your daily skincare regimen. A trip to our medical spa in Eugene, Oregon, can help jump-start your efforts with skin tightening treatments such as Ultherapy®.
Combining At-Home Skincare With Med Spa Treatments
The best way to create personalized skincare habits is by having a professional analyze your skin to determine its type. Based on that, we can recommend professional-grade skincare products customized for your needs. It’s also good to remember to adapt your skincare regimen to different seasons.
Our aesthetic specialists can also advise patients about med spa treatments that can help them achieve their cosmetic goals. One of the most popular procedures we offer is Ultherapy, considered the gold standard among nonsurgical skin tightening treatments.
What Sets Ultherapy Apart?
Ultherapy kickstarts new collagen production using ultrasound energy that penetrates the skin’s surface and heats tissue at various depths. We can customize the depth of ultrasonic energy delivery, which is one of the reasons Ultherapy remains the preferred nonsurgical skin tightening treatment. Our gallery of before-and-after photos demonstrates the types of results produced by Ultherapy for some of our patients.
It’s ideal for the chin, neck, brow, and décolleté areas. Ultherapy not only tightens the skin but also creates a lifted appearance. It uniquely uses ultrasound imaging, allowing providers to see the specific layers of tissue being treated.
Will I Need Many Treatments?
Ultherapy is more powerful than most other skin tightening treatments, such as those that use radiofrequency energy, and it produces much more dramatic results after a single treatment. Booster treatments 3 to 6 months later enhance the outcomes. Other technologies may require 3 to 6 treatment sessions.
Even though there is no downtime, we use pain medication to help patients remain comfortable during the treatment and recommend resting for the remainder of the day after the procedure.
What Other Med Spa Treatments Can Improve the Skin’s Appearance?
Each person’s skincare needs are unique, and you may want to choose a different treatment. For example, Clear + Brilliant is a good “starter” laser skin treatment for patients who like the way their skin looks but want to protect against the natural and environmental effects of aging.
HydraFacial® is another treatment that would be an excellent addition to your new skincare routine to maintain your skin’s health and a radiant glow all year long.
