The No Downtime Face and Neck Lift

There is a new cutting-edge technology that is gaining attention of celebrities and the media. This technology is Ultherapy which is microfocused ultrasound technology that combines ultrasound imaging with acoustic energy to visualize tissue under the skin and deliver precise energy in the right depth. The device is FDA-cleared for lifting and tightening the skin on the face and neck. Celebrities such as Christie Brinkley, Jennifer Aniston and Kathie Lee Gifford have disclosed to undergoing the treatment and seeing excellent results.

The energy that Ultherapy delivers is directed to the tissue areas that need lifting, firming and tightening. As we age our faces begin to sag, the jawline begins to lose definition and wrinkles appear. There are risk factors that contribute to the acceleration of aging such as smoking, excessive sun exposure, genetics and an unhealthy diet. Until recently the only approach to lift the skin was a surgical facelift. However, Ultherapy is a great alternative for those that want lifting of the face and neck without the need of scalpels, needles or cutting.

One can achieve natural looking face lift and neck lift results without the downtime from surgery. Treatment options are as follows:

• lift the skin on the neck and under the chin

• lift and tighten the jaw line

•lift the brows and tighten the skin around the eyes

• improve wrinkles on the décolleté (chest)

Another benefit to this technology is that there is no downtime, one can do this treatment as a “lunchtime lift.” Results may take anywhere from 60 to 90 days and when the results kick in one sees that the jawline is well defined, the neck lifts and the brows firm.
