3 Things You Should Know About a Nonsurgical Facelift

If you’ve been dreaming about smoother, younger-looking skin, but aren’t interested in the risks of surgery, a nonsurgical facelift may be your solution. You can achieve effective, long-term results using the innovative Ultherapy® for a nonsurgical facelift that diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reversing the signs of age.

At Bopp Dermatology, we offer in-office Ultherapy® and ensure your comfort every step of the way. If you want more youthful skin without incisions, here’s what you should know about Ultherapy® and the possibilities of a nonsurgical facelift.

1. Ultherapy® addresses the problems of aging skin

As you get older, your skin changes and no longer produces as much collagen and elastin as it did when you were younger. These essential components of healthy skin are what keep your skin looking plump and smooth, so when production slows down, your skin begins to thin out and sag.

A loss of collagen and elastin can reduce the strength, suppleness, and elasticity of your skin, making you look older than your years. Skin also becomes drier than it used to be. Ultherapy® addresses these issues that come along with aging skin.

2. How our nonsurgical facelift works

Ultherapy® is a medical device that uses high-frequency sound waves to enhance the health of your skin. The device is applied to the skin surface and delivers waves of energy to the tissues below, raising their temperature and triggering your body’s natural healing ability.

Treatment stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin to promote more youthful skin. Old skin is gradually replaced by newer, healthier skin, adding volume and smoothing out wrinkles, folds, and creases.

As new collagen and elastin develops in the weeks after treatment, you continue to see better results. Skin feels and looks tighter, firmer, and nicely-balanced to promote a more vibrant look.

3. The benefits of Ultherapy® versus surgical facelifts

In the past, people often had to rely on surgical procedures to remove excess skin that caused their wrinkles and creases. But many patients don’t want the risks and long recovery time that come with surgical facelifts.

With Ultherapy®, you can achieve natural healing from the inside out, without a single incision or need for downtime. The convenient ultrasound therapy assists your body in producing new collagen and elastin without damaging surrounding tissue or leaving any scars.

Each Ultherapy® treatment is customized to meet your specific needs, and the technology has a unique, built-in imaging system that allows the provider to see the areas they’re treating in real-time. This ensures you are getting exactly the treatment you need to achieve your results.

While Ultherapy® is a popular choice as a nonsurgical facelift procedure, the technology can also improve the health of your skin on other areas of your body, including your neck and chest. Besides some mild tenderness or swelling in the treated area, there are no side effects to worry about and no incisions to care for after treatment.

You can also expect to go back to work or your usual activities immediately after treatment without any limitations or side effects.
