Neocollagenesis, the Secret of Skin Eternal Youth

What is Neocollagenesis?

The world neocollagenesis is made from three words Neo+ Collagen + Synthesis.

Neo= Neo means a combining form meaning “new,” “recent,” “revived,” “modified,”

Collagen= the main structural protein found in skin and other connective tissues。

Synthesis=means to combination or composition.

So now we simply understand that world neocollagenesis means ” Making of New Collagen”

Collagen lost as we age. When we are 30’s or more, collagen stop producing at all, making our skin wrinkle, drooping and saggy.

The only way to begin the neocollagenesis process is to damage our current skin first. Using our AMCC beauty Ultherapy method to damage the existing collagen. We promote our body to send an alarm to our brain “I need more collagen!” asking our brain to make more collagen to instead of those fibroblasts to take place.

The happy thing and the reason of causing controlled damage is that our fibroblasts will produce more of collagen than before, plumping up our skin, improve lines and wrinkles to reversing signs of aging.

Collagen may take about 1 or 2 months to grow, the whole reparation processing from 3 to 6 months, depends on your physical condition.

So, what is Ultherapy®?

Ultherapy® is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure for skin tightening to lift the eyebrow, neck, jawline, and décolletage areas. Ultherapy is the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment to ensure the energy is deposited to where it will be most beneficial. This focused ultrasound energy boosts collagen production, a process also known as neocollagenesis, and actually triggers your body’s natural healing response, promoting the regenerative process that produces new collagen. The procedure is unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery, and other technologies since it bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. Ultherapy can be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the chest, to tighten the jowls, and even to treat fine lines around the eyes, with almost no downtime.

How do I know I am a candidate for Ultherapy®?

A good Ultherapy candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to feel and look less firm. Examples include a lowered eyebrow line, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin, and lines or wrinkles on the chest. Of course, the best way to find out if you’re an Ultherapy candidate is to consult with our practitioners, so it is important to schedule an appointment.

How long does this procedure last?

The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.

Do I need more than one treatments?

Most patients only need one treatment. However, based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and the individual’s collagen-building process, some patients benefit from additional treatments. Because skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help patients keep pace with the body’s natural aging process.

When can I see the results?

After your Ultherapy treatment, you may see some initial effect, but the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months, as your body naturally regenerates collagen. Since the procedure stimulates your own collagen production, how long the results last really depends on you. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but your natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside.

Do I need to take time off after the procedure?

With Ultherapy, there is no downtime. After your procedure, you can resume your normal activities immediately, without having to follow any special post-treatment guidelines.

What are some common side effects?

The skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are temporary in nature. Other, less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin. As with any medical procedure, there is the possibility for other rare effects, which your practitioner will review with you.
