For years, facelifts have been the gold standard for obtaining a younger, tighter face. However the bruising, swelling and downtime that is typical during the recovery of invasive facelift procedures is no longer required.
Through Ulthera, a non-invasive ultrasound procedure, the brow, neck and jowls are visibly lifted, tightened and toned for a more youthful appearance. Not only does the procedure provide results for almost everyone, it can be performed during a simple office procedure lasting about 20 minutes to one hour.
Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Dr. Gregory Wiener explains that Ultherapy is a great alternative for patients who seek results, but are worried about the surgery and fiscal aspects that come with a facelift. “This is the only FDA cleared procedure that can be used to lift and tighten skin in this manner,” says Dr. Wiener. “With Ultherapy, patients will see results unfold and increase over a matter of months as their skin continues to improve. Collagen will increase and the skin’s elasticity will improve, meaning that your skin will look visibly younger and healthier, not to mention tighter, at a third of the cost.”
