Ultherapy® vs. Surgical Neck Lift

It’s a common problem with aging–skin around the neck loses its elasticity and starts to sag. While not unordinary, many people aren’t proud to show off aging skin. Fortunately, face lift procedures are extremely effective in helping to lift this skin and provide a younger, tighter looking jawline. But, surgery may not be right for everyone. So, to help those who don’t necessarily want or need a facelift, Ultherapy® can help.

Why Some May Not Consider a Surgical Neck Lift

There are two reasons why someone looking for facial enhancements may not want to consider a surgical neck lift. First, some simply don’t like the idea of surgery. It requires a doctor’s consultation, preparation, anesthesia, removing skin and fat, and recovery. While effective, all the components of this procedure may be overwhelming to some. Secondly, some people may not wish to consider a surgical neck lift because they may not require drastic results. On the contrary, they just wish that their neck appeared as it did 5 or so years ago. In either case, a surgical neck lift isn’t the only option for these individuals.


What is Ultherapy®?

Ultherapy® is a type of skin treatment which utilizes sonic waves to stimulate the body’s natural reproduction of collagen. This helps to reduce the appearance of aging due to wrinkles, crow’s feet and sagging of the neck, chin, or brow. While the therapy has been around for quite some time, it has recently been advanced to reduce painful sensations during the therapy. Now, patients can enjoy the natural effects of collagen stimulation without painful side effects.
