New Ultherapy Treats Facial Wrinkles Without Surgery
If you’re on the far side of your 40th birthday, you probably remember when people used to practice face-contorting isometric exercises and pat themselves under the chin in vain attempts to stave off the wrinkles and sagging skin of old age. These early attempts at non-surgical cosmetic treatment may have made us feel good but they failed to stop the march of time. At that time, a facelift was the only way to smooth facial wrinkles and pull the slack from sagging skin.
The introduction of Botox and other skin fillers launched a new era in facial plastic surgery. For the first time, New York facial plastic surgeons were able to offer their patients viable non-surgical cosmetic treatments to rejuvenate aging skin that produced excellent, dependable results. Affordability, negligent healing time and immediate results have made non-surgical facial cosmetic surgery treatments wildly popular. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, last year facial plastic surgeons performed nearly 8 million minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. A significant 83% of those cosmetic procedures were non-surgical.
Patient demand for non-surgical cosmetic treatments has led to the development of new technology and new cosmetic procedures that expand the New York facial plastic surgeon’s repertoire beyond Botox and other injectables. Ultherapy is one of the most effective of the new cutting-edge, non-surgical facial cosmetic treatments. Now available from ESK Facial Plastic Surgery, Ultherapy is a unique ultrasound procedure for the treatment of facial wrinkles and sagging facial skin. Using targeted ultrasound waves, Ultherapy stimulates the body’s production of collagen. Tightening and toning the face and neck, Ultherapy rejuvenates the appearance and texture of facial skin without surgery.
