To fight the negative effects of age, many people turn to plastic surgery, going with facelift or neck lift to turn back the clock and unleash a more youthful appearance. However, you do not have to go under the knife to recapture a wrinkle-free you. At Viva Wellness Medical Group in San Diego, we offer Ultherapy, a nonsurgical treatment that can give you many of the same results as a facelift or neck lift.

What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is an amazing noninvasive procedure that reduces visible signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, and loose skin. Ultherapy is a nonsurgical procedure, requiring no anesthesia or incisions. Instead, an ultrasound device is applied to your neck and face, sending ultrasound energy deep into the tissues beneath the skin. This heats up the tissue, causing your skin to think that the tissue is being harmed and needs healing. Your body springs into action, starting the natural healing process. Part of this healing process involves stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, the naturally occurring proteins in your body that help keep your skin looking vibrant and elastic. With more collagen and elastin, your skin looks and feels much more youthful and beautiful.
Can Ultherapy Replace Facelift and Neck Lift Surgery?
A facelift and neck lift are two procedures that involve surgically removing excess skin and pulling the remaining skin tight over your face or neck. While Ultherapy may not get you as drastic results, it mimics many of the benefits of a facelift or neck lift with far less hassle. Ultherapy is a nonsurgical option and there is minimal recovery time needed, so after getting Ultherapy treatment you can just go about your everyday life. Conversely, a facelift or neck lift is a surgical procedure that requires anesthesia and ample recovery time before you can go out in public. Ultherapy also works to improve the tone and texture of your skin. Collagen and elastin do not just help smooth out wrinkles, it also can help visibly improve other aspects of your skin to give you a clear and crisp complexion. In some cases, a facelift can look artificial and fake, but Ultherapy always looks natural, accenting your best features and leaving your face looking naturally beautiful. Finally, Ultherapy is just a fraction of the cost of a facelift or neck lift, helping you save a lot of money on treatment.
