When considering a facelift, you want real, measurable results that you’ll be able to see. What most people want tight and toned skin that has an overall more youthful appearance. Ultherapy is a new, FDA-approved procedure that can provide similar results without having to undergo surgery.
A facelift is considered major surgery, and involves significant preparation and recovery time, in addition to pain and discomfort following the procedure. Ultherapy, on the other hand, is completely non-surgical, which makes it a great option for anyone who may not feel ready for such an invasive procedure, may not have the financial means to afford it, or may be unable to take the time off from work necessary for recovery.
Ultherapy uses ultrasound waves to stimulate structural layers deep underneath the skin, all while leaving the skin unharmed. As tissue below begins to heal itself, new collagen growth is prompted, which results in the skin lifting, toning, and tightening itself over a period of one to six months. The entire face and neck area, including the brows, jawline, and chin, can be treated.
Because of the non-invasive nature of the procedure, those who undergo this treatment don’t need to plan on allowing time for recovery. Sessions are quick and easy, lasting just an hour to an hour and a half, making it an excellent choice for those who live busy lives.
