Can Ultherapy Replace a Facelift?

As we age, our skin loses elasticity and has a tendency to start sagging. Ultherapy is a non-surgical treatment that lifts and tones loose skin with the use of ultrasound imaging. The procedure is a great alternative for individuals who wish to attain younger looking skin without surgery. If you are looking to tighten or lift your skin in a non-surgical manner, contact one of our Scottsdale surgeons at 480-696-6361.

When you elect to get a facelift, excess skin is removed from the face and the remaining skin is tightened and redraped. Since it is a surgical procedure, it will require downtime for recovery as well. A facelift is a much more intensive procedure than Ultherapy.

For those not ready for a surgical procedure, Ultherapy can help by treating the deep layers of tissue in the skin in a non-invasive manner, including those addressed during a surgical facelift. The results produced will not be the same as the results you would see with a facelift. Ultherapy is not a replacement for cosmetic surgery, though it may help a patient extend the effects of a facelift.

If you are wanting to lift and tone your skin without the need for a surgical procedure, contact Gawley Plastic Surgery at 480-696-6361 to schedule a consultation with one of our Scottsdale surgeons to see if Ultherapy is right for you.
