Ultherapy vs. Facelift: Which Is The Better?

Ultherapy vs. Facelift: Which Is The Better?

You know how the old saying goes: “You should look as young as you feel.”  Well, in your case, you still feel like you’re in your twenties or thirties – but your face isn’t exactly keeping up with your energy and zest for life.  It seems every passing day adds some new line or fold to your face, neck, and around your eyes…

And you’re ready for it to stop!

That’s why you’re interested in facial rejuvenation and tightening procedures available at South Coast Plastic Surgery.  Founded by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Kyle Song and Dr. David Dorfman, this Orange County practice is home to an entire treatment menu of procedures designed to help tighten and tone your facial skin.

But if you think this treatment menu is limited to just a traditional facelift, then it might be time to introduce yourself to Ultherapy.

If you have mild-to-moderate skin laxity issues, Ultherapy is likely a better treatment option than the much more invasive (and expensive!) facelift.  Ultherapy uses the power of ultrasound energy to penetrate the deepest layers of the dermis.  As the heat causes the skin muscles to contract – resulting in a noticeable skin-tightening effect – collagen and elastin production is elevated.

As you can see, Ultherapy is a great option for patients who are looking for both short-term tightening results and long-term facial rejuvenation!

A full face-to-neck Ultherapy procedure takes about 45 minutes to perform.  There’s no downtime associated with this procedure, so patients can return to their daily activities.  You may need multiple Ultherapy treatments, depending on your skin’s current laxity.  Most patients see ideal results within two to three months after their final Ultherapy treatment.

To learn more about if you’re a good candidate for the Ultherapy procedure, schedule a consultation at South Coast Plastic Surgery in Irvine, California today.  South Coast Plastic Surgery serves the greater Orange County area.
