Ultherapy The Good And The Bad

How Ultrasound Skin Tightening Can Firm, Lift Your Face?

Many people don’t realize that ultrasound imaging can be used to lift skin and promote collagen production. One such noninvasive treatment, Ultherapy®, has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Practitioners use the ultrasound treatment to target deep tissue layers. They can use the device to focus energy where it is most needed.
Ultrasound therapy — long used for imaging and other treatments — is now helping to give people’s faces a lift.
Ultherapy uses noninvasive ultrasound energy to lift the eyebrow, neck and under-chin. Recently, the FDA approved the technique for smoothing décolletage (chest area) lines and wrinkles as well. 
The price of the treatment varies between &1400 to $4000

Ultrasound Therapy for Sagging Skin

Ultrasound therapy – commercially known as Ultherapy – improves the appearance of moderately loose or sagging skin by depositing focused ultrasound energy below the surface to stimulate the body’s creation of new collagen, the natural protein that gives skin its youthful firmness and elasticity. Skin begins to lift and tone over time.

Why choose ultrasound therapy for sagging skin

Ultrasound therapy is typically used on the brow, neck and under the chin. The treatment is non-surgical and can be performed in a doctor’s office.

What you should know about ultrasound therapy for sagging skin

The practitioner who performs the procedure will first cleanse your skin thoroughly. Next, an ultrasound gel is applied and the smooth handpiece is placed on your skin. The focused ultrasound energy is delivered to pre-planned depths within the tissue below the surface of your skin to stimulate collagen growth. Ultrasound therapy literally bypasses the surface of the skin, targeting the deep, structural skin tissues where collagen resides. The procedure uses the body’s own regenerative response to recondition the network of collagen fibers.

I have done research on this treatment and found horror stories and people loving it, so do you own research before getting this treatment. 

Ultherapy Ruined My Face

"Ultherapy is a non-surgical lifting procedure for the face and neck that uses tried-and-true ultrasound technology to gradually strengthen your skin from deep within. In less than an hour – and without any downtime – you’ll be well on your way to tighter, better-fitting skin."

While doing my research I came across this blog

What is best for sun damage skin, Laser or chemical peels?

The best laser is based on how much sun damage your skin has had. For very mild sun damage such as irregular pigmentation, the photofacial may be highly effective.  
This modality has little risk, virtually no downtime, and is generally inexpensive.  
For individuals with some discoloration, and early superficial wrinkles, options would include the photodynamic therapy approach, the erbium laser, or superficial fractionated lasers. 

Within that group of choices, we try to pick the method that best accommodates your needs, your budget, and how you feel about downtime. For more severe sun damage, the fractionated CO2 laser is our overwhelming choice.  This laser can actually be used for any type of sun damage from mild to severe, and is the gold standard for treatment of moderate sun damaged skin. I prefer the fractionated CO2 laser for those individuals having more sun damage and deeper wrinkles. 
The fractionated CO2 laser does have a few days of downtime, which must be considered when you are choosing a laser treatment. Also for more severe sun-damaged skin, the laser is used at higher settings, and there are always potential problems associated with any laser used at higher settings.  Keep in mind that laser treatments are safe, but not risk free.

For those with the worst sun damage including loose skin, the fully ablative CO2 lasers that first were used 10 years ago are still the gold standard for the most severely sun damaged. 
No one approach works for every skin type on every individual. People with ethnically darker skin may not be the best candidates for stronger CO2 Fractionated lasers. A consultation with a specialist is the best way to decide on an approach for you.

Deciding between a chemical peel and a laser skin resurfacing treatment is often confusing, as the words laser and chemical bring images of harsh procedures to mind. In reality, laser skin resurfacing treatments and chemical peels are rejuvenating, not damaging. Both help to restore a healthy, youthful, glow.
To determine which treatment is best for your individual skin type and needs, read on, and learn a bit more about the advantages each procedure provides.

Skin Resurfacing Treatments
Skin resurfacing procedures are designed to help treat wrinkles, discoloration, fine lines, acne scars, and other blemishes spots by quickly shedding the outermost layer of your skin.
Once the damaged outer layer of skin is removed, healthier and younger looking skin emerges. Choosing a skin resurfacing procedure largely depends upon several factors:
Your skin type
The depth of lines and wrinkles
The severity of sun damage
The extent of uneven skin pigmentation
Laser skin resurfacing procedures can be either ablative or non-ablative.
Ablative laser treatment uses brief pulses of high energy, amplified light waves to help remove your skin’s blemishes. It targets both the superficial and deeper layers of your skin.
Non-ablative laser treatment only targets the skin’s middle and deeper layers, keeping the superficial layer intact.

Ablative vs Non-Ablative Laser Treatments

Both ablative and non-ablative laser treatments stimulate skin cells to produce more collagen and elastin - two components of protein responsible for keeping your skin tight and firm.
It is important to note that there is no absolute "best" laser option, as the results of each vary based on individual skin types and needs.
For instance, ablative lasers work best for those with significant skin discolorations and severely sun-damaged skin. Alternatively, non-ablative lasers are best for superficial pigmentation spots, extreme redness such as rosacea, and the appearance of mild-to-moderate facial lines.

The Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing

With so many different types of laser skin resurfacing treatments available, it’s not uncommon to feel overwhelmed by the options. To help you make the right decision for your needs, it is best to think in terms of your skin care goals.
Whether it’s ablative or non-ablative, a laser skin resurfacing procedure can help you accomplish the following:

Fade skin discolorations (such as brown spots).
Reduce the appearance of mild to moderate facial wrinkles.
Reverse the effects of leathery, sun-damaged skin.
Improve and potentially eliminate redness from rosacea.
Lighten or possibly eliminate scarring.
While laser skin resurfacing treatments make use of light energy to encourage the skin’s regeneration and boost collagen production, a chemical peel uses an applied solution to gently peel off the outermost layers of the skin.
Ranging from light to deep, the chemical solutions vary according to strength and specific ingredients. 
The extent of their peeling action may be influenced by how they are applied and how long they remain on the skin.

Light Chemical Peels

Light chemical peels partially reach through the outermost layers of your skin and use a milder acid solution such as glycolic acid, alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA), salicylic acid, fruit enzymes, or a low concentration of trichloroacetic acid (TCA).

Deep Chemical Peels

Deep chemical peels reach further into the middle and deeper layers of the skin. Common types of deep chemical peels include phenol peels, stronger TCA peels, and croton oil. Deeper peels are recommended if you exhibit advanced signs of aging like intense wrinkles, extensive sun damage, or severe acne scars.
Medium-to-deep peels can produce dramatic improvements, they are more invasive. Anesthesia is required to make you comfortable during the treatment. Additionally, several days of downtime are required to allow your skin to heal.

Bio Gorgeous Peel - All Natural Peel
Also called the LUNCH PEEL 

Though the rest of your body is still energized and ready for anything, the blood flow to your skin and your body’s natural exfoliation process both start to slow down at the age of 30. So does your skin’s oil production, which can leave your skin looking dry and rough. Your skin can also look patchy, as not all of your skin shows signs of aging at the exact same time.

Dull skin can make you look tired and old, even when you're well rested. When your skin has a layer of dead skin cells on the surface, your skin doesn't reflect light as it naturally would with new, healthy skin. By beginning a skin care regimen that includes exfoliating and keeping your skin moisturized, you can foster the look of healthy, bright skin. When skin care isn't enough, your dermatologist can help you find ways to uncover brighter skin with clinical treatments.

Brighten Up

To restore your natural glow, exfoliate once a week with an at-home peel that contains alpha hydroxy acid or salicylic acid, and always moisturize afterward. Use a mild salicylic acid cleanser or one containing retinols daily, but avoid using both a cleanser and peel that both contain salicylic acid within one hour of each other. Ginseng, rosemary, vitamin A and vitamin C are all beneficial ingredients in skin-care products when revitalizing your skin, while mineral oil, petrolatum, SD alcohol 40, isopropyl myristate and isopropyl palmitate should be avoided. Always test new skin-care products on a small patch of skin just in front of your ear to make sure it won’t cause irritation.

It is in envy in every person’s eyes — that perfectly smooth facial texture, like porcelain.

Application tips:

  • Squeeze little amount of foundation on your palm and dot your face and neck with it. In case you want to use foundation brush dip it into the squeezed amount. Now beginning from the center of your face, i.e. nose, work up to the forehead, both the cheeks, chin and your neck. Blend it well either with the fingers, sponge or brush.
  • Do not forget to apply foundation on your neck. Applying foundation just on the face makes it stand out from the neck because of the different shades. Also dab on some to the sides of the neck.
  • Give special attention to uneven skin tone, pimples, spots or dark circles. Build up these areas with little more foundation and blend well.
    You can remove the excess foundation with either tissue or sponge. Just dab on to the area (do not rub).
  • Once you are done with applying foundation, set it with compact or loose translucent powder. This ensures that your foundation stays intact for a longer time.

You can order this all natural and organic liquid foundation directly from I'm Fabulous Cosmetics website or one of their vendors.

Super Affordable At Home Certified TCA Peels – My Story And Reviews Before And After Use – Treat Acne Marks, Scars, Slow The Aging Process and More… + How To Buy Them Online For 1/10 Cost.

What is a TCA peel used for?

A TCA peel is most commonly used for:
  • to reduce brown spots and age spots
  • to improve the texture of leathery, sun damaged skin and impart more glow
  • to improve melasma
  • to treat some types of acne
  • to reduce fine lines
  • Can be use on the face or body parts

What is a TCA peel?

TCA is a non-toxic chemical (trichloracetic acid), which has been used to perform skin peels for over 20 years. It is a relative of vinegar (acetic acid.) When TCA is applied to the skin, it causes the top layers of cells to dry up and peel off over a period of several days to one week. When the old skin is peeled off, it exposes a new layer of undamaged skin, which has a smoother texture and more even color.
Some dermatologists, in fact, still prefer TCA peels for treating sun damage or melasma, usually in combination with prescription creams. TCA peels are safe in the hands of an experienced dermatologist. TCA may be a good option, particularly if you have melasma, because many lasers are difficult to use when treating melasma.

What areas can be treated?

The face, neck, chest, back, arms, and legs. TCA peels may be very cost effective on the body because larger areas can be done at less cost than a laser. However, the risks of problems may also be greater unless the dermatologist is very experienced with TCA on the body.

When will I see results from my TCA peel?

As soon as you finish peeling you will see results. Your skin should continue to improve for 30-60 days as long as you are protected from the sun.

How much do TCA peels cost?

This really depends on where you live, the depth of peel and the areas you are peeling. TCA peels can run from $300 to $1,000 for a full face peel and are often done in a series. A full face, neck, and chest will cost more.
After years in the sun my skin was left very damaged, wrinkly and with lots of brown spots. 
My dermatologist suggested for me to use TCA peels. the price to do it at his office on my legs, chest, arms, hands decollete and hands was about $4900. So I decided to do some research online and came across the I'M FABULOUS COSMETICS BODY PEEL.
I order the 4 ounces bottle and did the peel myself at home following the instruction sheet that was included with the bottle I ordered. 
4 weeks later I can say that I am extremely happy with the results. However, I had to do 2 treatments 2 weeks apart. 
My brown spots are gone, by 90% and I am planning on doing another treatment next week. My skin looks smoother even though the deep wrinkles are still there for now.
