Thanks to Newton, there is no denying the laws of gravity. And we all know that what comes up, must come down, including the skin on your face and body. As you age, the greater the toll gravity has on areas of your body like your face, neck, and chin— leaving you looking older than you may care to admit. And although there are surgical procedures such as facelifts, neck lifts, and brow lifts to help tighten the skin on your face, not everyone feels comfortable going under the knife. Luckily, here at Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery, we offer our patients a fast, easy, and non-invasive way to lift and tighten these areas with Ultherapy. Sound too good to be true? Read on to learn more? What Is Ultherapy? Lasting only about 60-90 minutes on average, your Ultherapy treatment can be done in our office on a long lunch break without you having to take any time off of work. By using ultrasound technology, Ultherapy works to heat up the deep layers of your skin and promote the production of collagen. By speeding up the production of collagen, your skin will start to naturally lift and tighten— leaving you looking and feeling like you are in your twenties once again. Why Ultherapy? As mentioned above, there are a variety of both invasive and non-invasive options to help you lift and tighten the skin on your neck, chin, and forehead. So why choose Ultherapy? As the only FDA-approved ultrasound treatment, Ultherapy is unlike other non-invasive treatments like laser therapy. By targeting deeper layers of the skin, Ultherapy works to boost your skin's collagen production from the inside out— something that laser therapy simply can't do. What Are Results Like? Patients who get Ultherapy can expect to get rid of their “turkey neck” under their chin, tighten their brow area, and lift their overall face. Most patients say that they start to see the full results from treatment about six months afterward. Lasting around two years, Ultherapy gives patients longer lasting results than other non-invasive treatments— a win-win for everyone involved.
