Advances in ground-breaking aesthetic technology now allow for facelifts to be performed without going under the surgeon's knife. Using high energy waves, it is now possible to tighten and rejuvenate the skin on the face, neck and décolletage and dramatically reduce the appearance of jowls, eyelid and eyebrow droops. If you are looking to reduce skin laxity and smooth out wrinkles for an overall younger and fresher appearance with results than can last a couple of years, a non-surgical facelift is for you. The procedure takes less than an hour and requires no down time. You can even have a non-surgical facelift in your lunch break and go straight back to work.
What is a non-surgical facelift?
Non-surgical facelifts are performed with high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) which is a non-invasive, ultrasonic technology. The ultrasound energy penetrates the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) causing the tissue cells to heat up rapidly, then at a certain temperature the targeted cells experience cellular damage (there is no damage to the upper layers of the skin). This effect stimulates collagen production resulting in a firmer, tighter, lifted skin. The procedure is clinically proven, safe, and requires no down time.
