Everyone wants to look younger, but not everyone wants to go under the knife. This is the trend we’re seeing here in our Beverly Hills medical spa as more and more patients come to us in search of non-surgical alternatives to facelift surgery. However, many approach non-surgical facial anti-aging with a healthy dose of skepticism, particularly with our patient-favorite treatment Ultherapy, which is often referred to as the FDA approved non-surgical facelift alternative. But does Ultherapy work, or is it just a bunch of hype?
Ultherapy is FDA approved for non-surgical skin tightening of the face, neck and decolletage. The device uses ultrasound technology to gently lift and tighten skin, making the patient look more youthful in just one treatment. The claim may seem far fetched to some, but clinical trials, testimonials and before and after photos show real and noticeable results for patients seeking a non-surgical facelift alternative.
Does Ultherapy work? Yes, but only if it’s performed by a skilled and licensed provider. The mistake that some patients make when looking for an aesthetics provider is that they forget that, just because it’s a cosmetic and non-surgical procedure, it’s still a medical procedure and requires skill, training, experience and attention to detail. It’s just as important to select the right provider as it is to research the treatment technology itself. A review for Ultherapy is also a review of the provider, so consider negative reviews with this knowledge.
When selecting an Ultherapy provider, don’t choose based on proximity to your home or cost. This is your face and your health. Select an aesthetic provider like you would select a surgeon for a life saving operation. Choose only the best. Our Nurse Practitioner and Physician Assistant have the highest training, skill and education in not only using Ultherapy for non-surgical facelift treatments, but on facial anti-aging with other treatments like Botox and dermal fillers, as well as experience working with dermatologists and plastic surgeons.
No treatment is right for every patient, and we will be the first to admit that sometimes patients will have less than stellar results from a treatment because they weren’t a good candidate to receive treatment. Some patients will obtain better results with a facelift, Botox or fillers depending on their needs. Again, this is why it’s important to see only a skilled and licensed medical aesthetic provider who can determine what your needs are and the right treatment based on what they discover during your consultation, not based on what the latest technology is.
The ideal Ultherapy candidate is someone who already has some degree of laxity in their skin that causes it to feel and look less firm. Generally, if you're an individual in your 30s or older with mild to moderate laxity, you're a good candidate for this procedure.
