As Ultherapy has gained popularity as the best non-invasive treatment, the question we hear is what is the difference between Ultherapy and a face lift?


Ultherapy uses focused ultrasonic waves to the deepest layers of the skin to counteract the effects of aging and can be completed in under an hour, with no downtime. It’s a great option for patients who want to tighten and rejuvenate skin, but are hesitant to undergo an elective surgery. Ultherapy can take several months to see the end result and we recommend a follow-up treatment in 18-24 months for optimal results.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.

Face Lift:

Patients wanting more significant changes, such as the correction of greater skin laxity or deeper wrinkles, may benefit from a facelift which requires general anesthesia and around a 2-week recovery period.

Scheduling a consultation to discuss your desired results is the surest way to decide which option is best for you. 415-925-8555
