Why a Nonsurgical Facelift with Ultherapy® Could Be Right For You

If your face could use a lift to reverse the signs of aging, but you’re not ready for surgery, now may be the time to consider the many benefits of Ultherapy®.

Dr. Felix Bopp and our experienced aesthetic team at Bopp Dermatology offer this in-office, cutting-edge treatment to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and tighten facial skin — without the risks of anesthesia or invasive surgery.

Why you get wrinkles

In your younger years, your body produces substances, namely collagen and elastin, that keep your skin smooth, tight, and wrinkle-free.

As you get older, your body doesn’t produce as much of these substances, and as a result your skin starts to sag. Wrinkles and creases form, especially around your nose, mouth, and cheeks, making you look older than you are.

Traditionally, surgical techniques to tighten the skin were the only option available to enhance aging skin. However, surgical facelifts pose risks to your health, and not everyone can tolerate incisions or anesthesia.

Now, thanks to advancements in technology, a nonsurgical facelift is available that can tighten skin and enhance your facial features without a single incision. Ultherapy® is a highly-effective, nonsurgical treatment that delivers natural-looking, long-lasting results.

How Ultherapy® works

The technology of Ultherapy® uses safe, but effective, high-frequency ultrasound waves to target areas deep within your skin. Ultrasound energy heats the under layer of tissue, which stimulates your body’s own ability to heal itself.

Ultrasound waves trigger an increased production of collagen and elastin, two essential building blocks of healthy, young-looking skin. As new collagen and elastin develop in the weeks after treatment, the new skin cells replace the old cells that are no longer providing support for your skin.

As a result, your skin appears healthier and tighter, reducing the severity of wrinkles, fine lines, and creases that develop due to a loss of elastin and collagen.

Precise, painless treatment

To ensure we’re targeting the right areas of tissues, we use the innovative Ultherapy® imaging system that provides visual access to the tissues beneath your skin.

This technology allows your treatment to be customized to your specific needs, treating only the areas of skin where fine lines and wrinkles reside.

Keeping you comfortable during your Ultherapy® treatment is the top priority. We can provide a local anesthetic to the area of treatment to prevent pain and make it easier to tolerate your treatment.

The many benefits of an Ultherapy® facelift

In addition to reducing your risk for surgical complications, nonsurgical Ultherapy facelifts enhances your skin health from the inside out. The boost in production of collagen and elastin means you’ll enjoy the results of treatment for the long term.

Your customized treatment plan ensures your results look natural, and you can target exactly the areas of skin that bother you most. Treatment can be done quickly in our comfortable office environment, and we can use Ultherapy® on your face, neck, chest, and other areas where wrinkles and fine lines develop.
