Ultherapy Offers Alternative to Brow Lift Surgery
Brow lift surgery is one of the best ways to create a more youthful look and eliminate sagging skin and wrinkles around the eyes. If you appear to be frowning or look angry because of sagging skin above the eyes and around the eyebrows, a brow lift can help to tighten and lift up that skin so that you look fresh, youthful and happy. Still, surgery can be expensive and painful. Ultherapy is an alternative solution to the brow lift, and can help to “open up” the forehead and eye area without a single incision. Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to lift and tighten the skin around the brows, and may be a convenient and effective way to get the results you want without surgery.
If you have considered a brow lift or facelift surgery and don’t want to go under the knife, talk to your cosmetic surgeon about Ultherapy. Ultherapy is now available at select cosmetic and plastic surgery practices around the United States, and may be the best non-invasive brow lift option for you.
How Ultherapy Works
Ultherapy is a skin tightening treatment that is growing in popularity among doctors and patients. It uses ultrasound energy to gradually lift and tighten the skin around the brow, delivering ultrasound energy waves deep into the skin to stimulate collagen production. The Ultherapy treatment is painless and there is no downtime involved. When applied to the facial compartments around the brows and upper eyelid area, the skin begins to get smoother and contracts, creating a fresh, youthful appearance.
The Ulthera® System received FDA clearance as a non-invasive eyebrow lift treatment in 2009 and uses very focused ultrasound energy to trigger the body’s natural healing response. As the skin tissues heal, the skin is lifted, tightened and becomes firmer over time. Patients have reported less skin laxity of the eyelid skin and less hooding around the eyes, creating the “open” look that is indicative of youth and good health. It is a safe, non-invasive treatment that continues to produce lasting results, and is now available at many dermatology offices, plastic and cosmetic surgery centers, and some medical spas in the United States.
