Ultherapy has gained popularity as the best non-invasive treatment among patients and celebrities worldwide. Ultherapy is rapidly growing in popularity with more patients inquiring daily whether Ultherapy can mimic the results of a facelift. The idea of being able to tighten and lift the skin, without undergoing a surgical procedure, and restoring a youthful appearance is, understandably, alluring. Ultherapy is an easy and convenient alternative for people whose schedules prohibit time off for surgical convalescence or for those who are hesitant to undergo general anaesthesia for an elective procedure. Before reaching a decision, it is important to understand the ways in which Ultherapy differs from a surgical facelift.
Ultherapy is a surgery-free, cosmetic facial treatment that uses focused ultrasonic waves to counteract the effects of aging. Concerns like sagging skin, loss of elasticity, and bloating can be addressed with Ultherapy.
Ultherapy is a fast, safe, and relatively painless procedure. In fact, most patients can complete treatment in under an hour, and more importantly, there is no recovery period. This makes Ultherapy a desirable treatment for those who, for example, cannot easily be absent from work.
Although it may seem hard to believe, Ultherapy has been proven to work by signalling the body to regenerate cells, which will lift the skin in certain areas on the face/neck while simultaneously smoothing fine lines in the skin.
A facelift may be perfect for you if you are unhappy with sagging or loose skin in the face, neck, and/or deep wrinkles. There is only so much that even the most expensive facial products can achieve, so if you’re looking for better results, perhaps it’s time you consider a different alternative.
Surgical facelift procedures require general anaesthesia and, on average, a 2-week recovery period at minimum. The majority of face lift recipients report little to no pain or discomfort pos- operatively. However, this is accomplished by pain management, which does carry its own inherent risks and potential side effects. There are many different kinds of facelift procedures, (the “mini-facelift”, for example). Deciding which procedure is best for you depends greatly on your desired results.
It is important to make an educated decision when deliberating between these two procedures. Speaking with a medical professional about your desired results is the surest way to find an appropriate procedure for your unique goals.

Ultherapy does not duplicate the results of a facelift, but it can help you achieve a more rested and youthful appearance, which may be enough to accomplish your facial aesthetic goals. It is a wonderful option for people who want to tighten and rejuvenate their appearance but are hesitant to undergo an elective surgery. Patients wanting more significant changes, such as the correction of greater skin laxity or deeper wrinkles, may require additional procedures to achieve their desired results.
A private consultation with Dr. Torgerson will determine if you are a candidate for Ultherapy.
