Non-Surgical Facelift & Skin Tightening

January 12, 2018

Ultherapy-Non Surgical Facelift

Ultherapy is the only non-invasive FDA-approved procedure that lifts the neck, chin, brow and now décolletage. What does that mean? Non-invasive procedures are not surgical procedures and there is no downtime. This non-surgical alternative to a facelift is a revolutionary way to turn back the clock.

Ultherapy lifts and tightens your facial tissue to create a younger you. Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin from the inside-out. The skin’s resiliency and contours are renewed by gradually lifting and tightening the skin. Clients do notice immediate results but the real “WOW” factor comes after a few months as new collagen is stimulated. There is absolutely no downtime to this anti-aging procedure. Your facial and neck tissue will gradually tighten and lift over 3 months, with continued improvement over another 3 months, but you won’t have any of the downtime associated with surgery.

Ultherapy can be used to combat the signs of aging on your neck, chin, brow, or we can customize the treatment for an all-over lift.

Thermage-Non Surgical Skin Tightening and Lifting

Thermage is a non-invasive radio-frequency treatment designed to smooth and tighten the skin on the face and the body. Using radio frequency and cryogen, the Thermage hand piece chills the skin before and after each laser pulse to keep clients comfortable. Thermage encourages collagen production that thickens the collagen matrix and creates a tightening and smoothing effect. Most clients see results within a few days with continued improvement over 6 months.

Thermage can be used on small areas, such as the eyes or the neck, the entire face, and on most body parts. Thermage can even temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite. With virtually no downtime and no follow-up care, Thermage is perfect for busy clients who do not want the disruptions to their lives associated with surgery.

The Eyes

As you age, your skin’s collagen and elastin simply break down faster than your body can rebuild them, causing your skin to lose elasticity—which often leads to wrinkles, and pockets of loose, sagging skin. The effects of age are typically most noticeable around the eyes, where skin is delicate and thin. Over time it will start to lose elasticity, beginning to droop and wrinkle, even creating heavy “hoods” that make you look older.

The Face

After a lifetime of laughing, smiling, furrowing brows or lighting up in surprise, the skin on your face can really show the signs of aging. Your face is also the area of your skin most exposed to the elements, bearing the brunt of environmental factors like sun damage. Over time, the smooth, sleek look you once had breaks down, becoming uneven, and lined with wrinkles. Your features lose definition – especially in the jawline, lips and neck.

The Body

Skin is our bodies’ largest organ, adapting everywhere to the changes in your shape, activities and lifestyle. As we age, our skin’s resiliency and elasticity decreases – especially after major life events like childbirth – and sometimes never returns to that smooth skin feeling. For most people, age brings with it areas of uneven or unsightly bulges that just can’t be remedied with exercise or diet. It’s skin – not fat – that often gets in the way of achieving the youthful look we all desire.
