Facelift vs Ultherapy: Deciding which Option is Right for You

face50When it comes to getting your younger and tighter skin back there are several options available on the market. However, if you want something that is more advanced and taht will last longer than something like facial fillers, it might be time to consider either getting a facelift or ultherapy. So, how can you decide which option is right for you? Read on to learn more.


A facelift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that is done in order to both lift and tighten the skin around the face. By making a few small incisions either around the hairline, the ears, or even closer to the neck, a plastic surgeon will then go under the skin, scrape out any excess fat, and then retighten the skin around the face, leaving you with a more taut facial appearance. However, it should be known that due to its invasive nature, facelifts require a fairly extensive amount of recovery time and will require you to be medicated for at least a few weeks as you begin to heal.


As an FDA approved, non-invasive, non-surgical procedure, ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to give you basically the same results as a facelift. And due to its non-invasive nature, ultherapy doesn’t require any sort of recovery time or treatment. In fact, ultherapy is so easy that you can get it done on your lunch break or even in the morning before work. The best part about ultherapy is that results slowly appear over time, so you will get to wake up to a younger and more youthful looking you every few weeks.

When it comes down to deciding between facelifts and ultherapy, it comes down to what you and your doctor agree upon. As a quicker and pain free approach to the traditional facelift, many patients have found extreme success in ultherapy and wouldn’t have chosen another way. However, you need to make sure that you are confident and comfortable with whatever decision you decide to make.
