Ultrasound Skin Tightening

Non-invasive facial rejuvenation and skin tightening can be achieved with non-ablative lasers, radio frequency and ultrasound technologies. How does ultrasound work? How long do results last? What are the potential risks and complications? Read on.

Ultrasound skin tightening is yet another option for those who want facial and body rejuvenation without downtime and surgical scars. But what is ultrasound, and how does it produce results in facial rejuvenation?

Ultrasound makes use of acoustic or sound waves with frequencies above what humans can hear – hence its name, “ultra”-sound. Ultrasound has been used in medical applications since the 1940’s.  It has found uses in vascular and radiological studies, wound healing and physical therapy to name a few. Ultrasound is used in breast exams and for examining the fetus during pregnancy.

The same qualities that make it valuable in other medical applications, the ability to see through tissue, have been tested and developed for non-surgical skin tightening. These rejuvenation systems use intense-focused ultrasound. Ongoing research into ultrasound and its capabilities is opening up new frontiers that go far beyond skin rejuvenation.

    This one might interest you as a good question. I was thinking of under the chin procedure for the double chin and jowls issue. Here’s the thing, I had a sonogram done on my thyroids, which showed that I had tiny scattered nodules in my thyroids that this calls for attention to keep an eye on it, thought blood tests were normal. Now, if I were to get ultrasound skin tightening treatment under my chin, will this affect what’s going on in my thyroids. I just thought of that, and would not want to make it worse in my thyroids as sonograms may be a bit radioactive somewhat.
