The Non-Surgical Facelift
Even if you have great genes and you look younger than you really are, eventually age affects everyone and the most obvious changes first appear on the face. When you are young, fat is evenly distributed in pockets that plump up your forehead, cheeks, temples, mouth, and the areas around your eyes. With time the fat loses volume and shifts downward causing your smooth, tight skin to droop and sag as laxity gives into gravity. Meanwhile other parts of your face actually gain fat (especially in the lower portion) causing jowls to form around your chin and neck and as the fat decreases folds and wrinkles form as well. While some accept their appearance because they think looking old is unavoidable, thanks to modern technology and advanced techniques many people seek help today from age-defying procedures because they want to look as young on the outside as they feel on the inside.

How Ultherapy Works
Ultherapy™ is the only FDA-approved device that utilizes the safe energy of ultrasound technology to stimulate the deep structural support layers of your skin and it is unlike any other non-surgical skin tightening procedure because it is able to target the Superficial Musculo-Aponeurotic System (SMAS). The SMAS is the deep layer of tissues composed of multiple fibrous extensions that attach through the subcutaneous fat to the superficial epidermal-dermal layer of the skin and the connections cause the three layers of the facial skin to move as a unit. It is proven that the movement of the SMAS is a significant factor to the long-lasting outcome of a facelift and similar results can be achieved with Ultherapy™. Ultrasounds have been used for medical purposes for over 50 years and Ultherapy™ received FDA approval in 2009 for performing non-surgical lifts using ultrasound technology to send sound waves below the surface of the skin.
