We want you to get the most out of your consultation. If at all possible, it is best to make arrangements for small children to stay home rather than having them join us for your appointments.

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.
