If you have wrinkles on your face that you don’t like, crow’s feet on the edges of your eyes or simply a face which looks tired and worn out, you can benefit greatly from a procedure such as Ultherapy or Botox. During the last 5 years I have tried both of these treatments with great success, and as someone who has wrinkles on their face after 3 children and 50 years of living, these treatments were able to completely transform me.
I only generally use these treatments if I have an important event to attend to, as I am worried about the becoming dependent on such a treatment. I wanted to share with you my experience of both of these treatments, so as to give you a clearer picture as to what you can expect if you decide to give you face a boost with the power of modern treatments.
I had wanted toy try Botox for many years but I was never quite sure about the procedure, and I had read a great many horror stories about it going wrong. In truth I think that I waited until the kinks had been worked out, before I would give it a try. I started with a small dosage of Botox, just 30 units, in order to test out the product and see how I felt. The FDA won’t allow more than 200 units to be injected at one time, so that gives you an idea of how small a dosage I had. Despite just having 30 units put in, the effects after the first week were incredible, the Botox had been injected into the muscles on my face, which then tightened up my skin and made those wrinkles almost disappear. The effects lasted for around 6 months before the wrinkles came back, a great product that is incredibly safe and highly effective.
What drew me to try out Ultherapy was the fact that it was non-invasive, despite the fact that Botox only involves a few small injections in the skin, it can be uncomfortable and a non-invasive option seemed better. Once the FDA approved this treatment, I was looking forward to giving it a go so ahead of a wedding with I had planned, I booked up. This incredible treatment uses sound energy which has properties that allows it to bypass the skin and reach the muscles beneath it. The sounds waves then stimulates the naturally occurring collagen in the skin, which in turn straightens out and tightens up the skin. Unlike Botox, the effects take a little longer to begin, but they do stay for a longer period of time. What I loved about this treatment was how easy it was to have done, the fact that it is completely pain-free, plus the idea that it uses the body’s own tools to boost the skin, rather than injected a foreign body.
