A facelift is the procedure many people consider when they want to reduce saggy skin on their face and neck. Fortunately, Ultherapy is a good alternative to the traditional facelift because it can give you satisfactory results without a major surgery.
You Want to Avoid Downtime
A facelift requires a significant operation, unlike Ultherapy. Although the results from a facelift will be different from a non-invasive procedure, one of the major reasons people choose a non-surgical approach is the absence of downtime. To have surgery, there may be preparation, which can involve not eating or drinking before the operation or other limitations. Once the surgery is complete, significant pain and swelling are likely to occur. You may need several weeks away from work or your normal activities after a facelift. With Ultherapy, you do not need any preparation for the procedure; you simply visit the facility at your scheduled time. Post-procedural pain or swelling is minimal or non-existent in most people.
You Want Subtle Changes
It's possible to have natural-looking results from a facelift, but your results will never appear subtle to people who have known you before the procedure. For many people, the ideal procedure would allow their skin to become tighter and more youthful without a dramatic change that looks obviously surgical. Ultherapy can give you those changes. Since you can have the procedure with little to no recovery period, it is discreet. The improvements you see in your skin will occur gradually. This can easily be interpreted as you losing a little weight if you previously had saggy skin under your chin. Some people might simply think your makeup looks better or they cannot pinpoint what is different, but they notice improvements.
You Already Had a Facelift
A facelift will never be the magic solution for aging. Of course, everyone's results will vary, and the results will need to be maintained. Some people who had a facelift may want to prolong the results of their facelift and delay future surgeries or simply not go through the procedure again. Ultherapy is a way to help maintain your results after a previous facelift. You might choose to have a "touch-up" once every few years as you notice signs that your skin is beginning to sag again. Also, multiple facelifts can be problematic because the results often appear increasingly unnatural.
