Do Nonsurgical Facelifts Work?

A facelift without surgery might sound too good to be true. But thanks to modern technology, a great deal is possible for improving your facial aesthetics without going under the knife. 

At Best Impression Med Spa in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania, Robert Mirabile, MD, and Vivian Hsu, MD, offer ultherapy, which has been called a knife-free or sutureless facelift, to help you turn back the hands of time. 

Read on to learn more about nonsurgical facelifts, including this revolutionary treatment.

Nonsurgical facelift basics

Nonsurgical facelifts address a broad range of common complaints, from fine lines and wrinkles to sagging skin, all without the risks or downtime associated with surgery. 

And while the results are somewhat less dramatic than cosmetic surgery, they tend to be more economical and less painful than cosmetic surgery, while allowing you to try on a new look with results that look very natural.

Your nonsurgical facelift may combine several age-defying treatments, such as Botox and fillers, or work all in one swoop, which is the case with ultherapy. We can help determine your best treatment plan, based on your goals, preferences, and overall health.

What to expect from ultherapy 

Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to diminish visible signs of aging on your face. If you’re interested, we can also treat your neck and upper chest. 

The special device produces micro-focused ultrasound waves and generates a thermal effect that reaches every layer of your skin. As the tissue warms up, tiny injuries trigger collagen production. Collagen gives your skin a firm, smooth texture, but reduces with age.

Ultherapy is safe and noninvasive, requiring no incisions. The process starts with a skin-cleansing treatment, after which we apply a topical ultrasound gel that helps create a clear image of your skin on a screen.

During your treatment, you feel small pulses of energy and some mild tingling or warmth. While many people tolerate these sensations very well, we make every effort to keep you as comfortable as possible. The whole treatment takes about an hour. 

Ultherapy results

After your nonsurgical facelift using ultherapy, you can go right back to your usual daily activities, with no downtime required. Your skin gradually appears younger-looking and smoother within 2-6 months

While results vary, your results may last for a year or even longer. You may only need occasional touchup treatments to keep your results going longer term.
