Dr. Cole Discusses:
What is Non-Surgical Face lifting – Ultherapy?
Traditional Surgical Face Lifting can help to restore a more youthful appearance by tightening the skin of the face and neck. The results are often dramatic with significant improvement. The downside includes undergoing general anesthesia, and a prolonged recovery time. Surgical Face Lifts range anywhere from $8000-$12000 and can be cost prohibitive for many patients.
Ultherapy, also known as Ulthera is a non-invasive non-surgical ultrasound treatment approved by the FDA and Health Canada for the lifting of skin on the neck, chin and brow. Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound to lift and tighten loose skin over time, without any downtime.
Ultrasound is used to stimulate the growth of new collagen deep within the skin. The production of new collagen occurs over time and can become even more evident 3-6 months post procedurally.
The advanced ultrasound imaging system allows for visualization of the layers of skin to ensure the energy is deposited precisely where it will be most effective. The skin is lifted, tightened and toned resulting in a fresher more youthful look.
While Ultherapy won’t duplicate the results of a face-lift, it is a clinically proven, non-invasive effective alternative for those patients not wanting to under go surgery. The best part is that there is no downtime. Known as the “lunchtime lift” the procedure takes 60-90 minutes and you can resume normal activities right after.
The Ultherapy non-surgical face lift uses technology that triggers a natural response under the skin, jumpstarting the regenerative process that produces fresh new collagen. A great alternative to traditional face lifting.
