NJ Housewife Jacqueline Laurita Likes This Cosmetic Treatment To Stay Young
If you're a fan of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, and you know you are....then you've noticed Jacqueline Laurita looking especially lovely this season. Even Bravo's Andy Cohen recently asked the 42-year-old youthful mom about the cosmetic procedures she's had done to keep her looking so wrinkle-free. Fans have been wondering if Jacqueline went under the knife for a facelift.
She told him it was, ultherapy.
The next day, she went on her website to explain the treatment:
"I decided to do Ultherapy when I noticed my neck not firming up the way I wanted it to after my weight loss from my 55 lb. weight gain during my pregnancy. I’m 42 years old, so I’m sure my age has something to do with my lack of elasticity … Ultherapy for the face and neck actually improves the skin from the inside out by repairing and strengthening existing collagen while naturally stimulating new collagen development."
In simplest terms, ultherapy lifts, tightens and tones the skin of the face and neck. It's an outpatient treatment.
We did a little more research on the ultherapy procedure, and found on RealSelf.com, that it can be quite painful. However, it can't be that brutal a treatment, because 79% of RealSelf reviewers gave ultherapy a 'worth it rating.'
So, what's it all about?
During ultherapy treatment, ultra-sound energy in the form of gentle heat, is applied to the tissue to lift and tighten loose skin without cutting or injecting, etc. Ultherapy stimulates new collagen production. In a mere 30-60 minutes, your body’s own healing responses will be reminded to gently and gradually restore skin and underlying tissue.
"While it's not a replacement for a surgical face or eye lift, patients appreciate that the process is non-surgical. Once they understand that the results rely on the natural rebuilding of their collagen fiber network within the skin, they also realize that the effects take place naturally and gradually," says Daniel C Mills, MD of the Monarch Bay Laser, Laguna Beach, Calfornia.
According to RealSelf, the average cost of an ultherapy treatment is 2,625.
