If you want to do something about the sagging skin under your chin, a condition commonly known as turkey neck, you no longer have to consider a surgical facelift. Not so long ago, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the first and only non-invasive treatment for saggy skin around the face and neck: the Ulthera neck lift. Also known as Ultherapy, this procedure uses ultrasonic waves to lift and tighten the skin and can performed on an outpatient basis at a reliable Beverly Hills medical spa, such as Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center, a top-rated aesthetics practice owned by four world-renowned aesthetic physicians.
The simple answer to this question is undeniably yes. Ultherapy is a safe and effective form of non-surgical neck rejuvenation developed for the purpose of treating sagging skin on the neck, under the chin and around the eyes. The procedure is performed by a medically licensed aesthetic treatment provider using a device that looks and works much like a standard ultrasound wand.
An Ultherapy neck lift can be performed on just about anyone who looks older than they believe they should look and wants a fresh, youthful appearance. Nearly anyone seeking the treatment will be approved, but a thorough examination and consultation are required beforehand to ensure it is the right choice for you. Although the procedure is exceptionally gentle, those with burns or other injuries on the area to be treated may not be good candidates.
The primary difference between Ultherapy and neck lift surgery is that Ultherapy is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment for skin tightening. Neck lift surgery requires the patient to undergo general anesthesia and be rolled into a sterile operating room. A surgeon then makes an incision in the skin, pulling it tight, possibly suctioning away some of the fat and reclosing the entry. Like any surgical procedure, neck lift surgery has inherent risks and requires downtime that many cannot afford.
An Ulthera neck lift not only alleviates the fear some people have of going under the knife but also eliminates long recovery times and surgical risk. Ultherapy does not require any cutting or breakage of the skin. It works by harnessing the power of sound waves. The ultrasonic waves emitted by the Ulthera wand stimulate skin cells deeper than even lasers can reach.
The ultrasonic waves have the effect of tightening the muscles, lifting the skin and stimulating natural collagen production to restore elasticity and pliability. This makes the skin smooth and vibrant so that you are rejuvenated and appear years younger. One of the best parts is that Ultherapy does not have a long recovery time like a surgical neck lift does. Most people are able to continue their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
The cost of an Ulthera neck lift varies from one Beverly Hills medspa to another. However, the price of the procedure should not be your primary reason for choosing one provider over another. Instead, other factors should be considered, such as the experience and training of the providers and the medical spa’s reputation among patients. If the price is out of your range, financing options are available.
