Ultherapy Patient by Dr. PontellAre you tired of trying to fight the effects of time unsuccessfully? Have you begun to notice your facial features slowly drooping over time, making you look tired and worn out? Facial laxity is one of the most common facial aging issues. However, many people feel that their facial aging doesn’t warrant surgical intervention, which leaves them feeling unhappy with their appearance in the long term. Luckily, new technologies can restore skin firmness without surgery.

Why Sagging Skin Develops

Preventing your facial skin from drooping can be one of the most impossible tasks when it comes to treating your facial aging. Many creams and serums say they can restore firmness, but they don’t actually treat the cause of facial sagging—collagen loss. As you age, collagen and elastin fiber production begins to slowly decrease. Without new collagen and elastin, the effects of gravity take hold and your tissues begin to slowly droop downward. This process can lead to the appearance of jowls, a loose neck, and wrinkles.

Ultherapy® for Non-surgical Correction

In the past, the only way to restore firmness to the face was with a surgical facelift. But in patients who have less dramatic signs of aging and who can’t have any downtime, Ultherapy® is a great option. The revolutionary Ultherapy® treatment uses focused ultrasound waves to non-invasively penetrate the skin and heat the deeper layers of the face. Ultherapy® often provides people with the firmer skin they want without having to go under the knife.

  • Fast treatments
  • No recovery time

Who Qualifies?

A consultation is necessary to determine if you are a good candidate for Ultherapy®. If you have moderate laxity of the skin and muscles in the face and neck, you are probably a good candidate. You should always schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in facial enhancement.
