On the forefront of cosmetic surgery technology is Ultherapy. Where before, people concerned about sagging on the face and neck had only had a traditional surgical facelift, there is now Ultherapy. Though a traditional facelift is still idea for extensive lifting, Ultherapy can provide a subtler, gentler lift without the risks of invasive surgery.
Ultherapy is FDA-cleared and has been performed on more than 100,000 patients. The process generally takes an hour depending on the areas to be treated. On the day of the procedure, ultrasound gel is applied to the surface of your skin, and a smooth hand-piece is used to project ultrasound energy below the skin.
This energy stimulates new collagen production that will continue to lift months after the procedure. As soon as the procedure is over, you can resume your daily activities. Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Fred Bressler to determine if Ultherapy is right for you.
