Nonsurgical Facelift & Necklift: Ultherapy Before & After Photos
Nonsurgical Skin Tightening Alternative to a Facelift or Necklift
Do you wish for a tighter jawline or a firmer neck with no surgery and a single in-office procedure? Perhaps you do the little “facelift” face in the mirror by lifting sagging skin up with your fingers? Or perhaps you feel like you have loose skin on your eyelids or that you have noticed your eyebrows becoming droopy over time. If the answer is “Yes!” to any of these questions, then perhaps you should consider Ultherapy.
Ultherapy is an ultrasound-based device that provides a nonsurgical skin tightening alternative to a facelift or necklift. It delivers heat energy to deep tissue layers of the brows, lower face, jowls, and neck. Heat stimulation results in new collagen growth, creating skin tightening and lifting to connective tissue layers and the skin of the face and neck.
Results with Ultherapy are not typically as dramatic as surgery. Ultherapy is typically performed as a single procedure and is FDA-approved for 12 months duration, although patients may experience results lasting 18-24 months. Smaller, booster maintenance therapies to small areas of maximal targeting after approximately 6 months duration is likely to result in greater lifting of sagging tissues.
The most frequent concern when Ultherapy candidates are researching the procedure is discomfort. Not all Ultherapy treatments are created equally. Pain is avoided when the right tissues are targeted (avoiding treatment to bone along the jawline or brow) and when proper comfort measures are taken. At Art of Skin MD, we take special care to ensure patient comfort by combining topical, oral, and regional anesthesia. Most patients experiencing a pleasurable nap or pain-free treatment with Ultherapy.
