What Causes Loose Skin?
There are various factors that can contribute to loose skin. Common contributors include the natural ageing process, extreme weight loss, and prolonged sun exposure. Sometimes, a combination of these factors can lead to loose skin.
Can You Tighten Skin Without Surgery?
A good skincare routine can tighten the skin to a certain extent. For example, patients who use skincare products that hydrate the skin as well as proper sun protection could potentially reduce common types of skin damage and subsequently reduce signs of ageing.
While most people associate lifted skin with a facelift, there are many treatments that do not require surgery. These treatments can stimulate the body to create more collagen. If you wish to avoid more invasive treatment, or if you are not yet ready for surgery, then procedures such as Ultherapy in Melbourne are something to look into.
What Is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy in Melbourne is a non-surgical procedure that uses focused ultrasound energy to address common types of skin damage. As such, ultrasound technology is more than suitable to address problems such as loose skin.
There are various areas on the body that can be treated with Ultherapy in Melbourne. This includes areas such as the skin on the neck, which can get loose due to the natural ageing process.

How Does Ultherapy Work?
Ultherapy in Melbourne works by penetrating foundational layers of the skin. It basically uses a special form of heat energy at different depths, which has an effect on the muscle, skin as well as irregularities on the skin’s surface. This means Ultherapy in Melbourne improves lines and wrinkles that are visible on the face, neck, or other relevant areas. This means Ultherapy treatment could be an alternative to anti-wrinkle injections.
Shortly after the procedure, patients can still experience some side-effects. Common side-effects include a tingling sensation and some redness for a couple of hours after treatment. Some patients can also experience some mild swelling.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Most patients who are in good general health and show mild signs of ageing are good candidates for Ultherapy. For some patients, this procedure can be combined with surgical procedures to enhance the results obtained.
How Long Does It Take To See Results?
The first results after Ultherapy will be visible within a couple of days. Since the procedure stimulates the production of collagen, patients can expect the results to continue improving as the body creates new collagen.
Some patients only obtain a single session of Ultherapy, while others obtain multiple sessions to obtain the desired results. The number of sessions required to reach the desired result does depend on why you obtain the procedure. For example, someone with a significant amount of loose skin may require more sessions than someone with only a few fine lines on the face.
