Want tighter, younger-looking skin – but not sure if plastic surgery is the best option for you?
We hear you. Plastic surgery can require a significant investment from patients, both from a financial and timing perspective. While many patients may be interested in the results of, for example, a facelift surgery, they may not be sure that they’re ready to undergo the surgery and the recovery process.
Which is why we have many patients asking: Can Ultherapy replace facelift surgery?
What is Ultherapy?
Before we answer that question, let’s take a closer look at Ultherapy, and why it’s often touted as a serious alternative to facelift surgery.
Ultherapy is a non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment that uses ultrasound energy to target and tone aging skin. The energy penetrates the deepest dermis layers and triggers a tightening reaction, which results in noticeably firmer skin. Ultherapy is commonly used on treatment areas like the face, neck, chest, and even upper arms.
Now that you know more about Ultherapy, let’s answer that question about whether Ultherapy can replace facelift surgery.
Ultherapy vs. Facelift: What’s Right For You?
The answer is, it depends on the severity of your aging symptoms. For example, if you have moderate skin laxity, Ultherapy can produce better results for you than if you had significantly sagging skin. If you have moderate-to-severe wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin, you may find that a traditional facelift surgery is the best option to deliver your preferred results.
