Everyone wants to look good at all stages of their life or we all want to age gracefully. But as we grow older our skin starts losing its elasticity which makes it look saggy and old. The loosened skin adds several years to one’s appearance. With the development of technology, there are plenty of surgical and non-surgical methods available to help you to stay youthful.
Thermage, Ultherapy and HIFU are the most popular among all non-surgical options of anti-aging treatments.
They help in tightening the skin, removing the fine line and wrinkles, etc. These three also differ in some areas which can be the determining factor for choosing the best method which works best for you.
Today, we will discuss Thermage, Ultherapy, and HIFU in detail along with their comparison.
Thermage is a skin tightening treatment that targets collagen production under the layers of the skin. It is a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment process. Thermage came into existence around 15 years ago. Many celebrities like Jennifer Aniston, Oprah, Demi Moore, Gwyneth Paltrow, etc. have also opted for this skin treatment.
Under this treatment, radiofrequency is used to radiate heat under the deep layers of the skin which results in boosting the collagen, ultimately tightening the loose skin. Thermage has no downtime period so the person can resume his or her daily routine without any hassle. The effect can last up to 2 years.
HIFU stands for high-intensity focused ultrasound. It is a relatively new skin tightening treatment that people are much not accustomed to. HIFU is also a very effective non-invasive and pain-free skin tightening treatment. This treatment incorporates an ultrasound technique to cure loosened skin.
FDA approved HIFU for brow lifts in 2014 for cosmetic treatments. The procedure can be used for skin tightening, facial rejuvenation, contouring, etc. HIFU has been regarded as a very effective skin tightening treatment by users.
Aging should not be synonym with dull appearance and lower self-esteem. The loosened skin and wrinkles can affect a person’s confidence. We are blessed with advanced technology for non surgical face lifting and anti-ageing, without the need to go through the fear of surgery and prolonged recovery.
