Does Ultherapy Really Work for Skin Tightening in Boston?

What is Anti-Aging?

When we talk about anti-aging, what exactly are we trying to counteract?

To answer this, we need to understand the physiological processes of aging and the fundamental layers of facial structure.

Aging affects more than just the skin; it involves deeper layers, including subcutaneous tissue (fat), muscle aponeurosis (SMAS layer), muscle, and bone. The physiological changes of aging occur from the outer to the inner layers, affecting even the bones.

The Layers of Aging

  1. Skin Layer

  • Collagen Loss: Starting around age 25, collagen in the skin decreases at a rate of 5-10% per decade. This loss leads to reduced skin elasticity and firmness, resulting in wrinkles.

  • Skin Laxity: As the skin loses its ability to support the underlying tissues, it begins to sag.

2. Subcutaneous Fat Layer

  • Fat Redistribution: Aging causes subcutaneous fat pads to atrophy and redistribute. This shift results in sagging cheeks, jowls, nasolabial folds, and eye bags as fat moves from supportive areas to unwanted locations.

3. SMAS Layer

  • Structural Support: The SMAS (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System) is a connective tissue layer composed of collagen and elastic fibers, attaching to the facial and neck muscles.

  • Elasticity Loss: With age, the SMAS layer loses elasticity, much like a stretched-out elastic band, leading to facial and neck sagging.

Combating Aging: Lift and Tighten

Tightening: Addressing external skin laxity by restoring elasticity and firmness from the outside in.

Lifting: Enhancing internal support structures to counteract gravity, giving the skin an upward lift.
