The non-surgical brow lift using Ultherapy is now available at A E Skin. One of the most common signs of aging and concerns we get is heaviness in the brow and upper eyelid. This gives the appearance of being tired and old. Of course, a surgical brow lift is the perfect solution. But as you know surgery has its drawbacks including surgical scars, anesthesia, recovery time, and a high expense. Over the past decade or so, Botox has been used to improve the appearance of a brow, but Botox requires regular maintenance treatments every three to four months. Now with the power of ultrasound energy, we can achieve results comparable to a surgical or Botox brow lift without these down sides. What happens naturally over time is that collagen in the skin is lost due to sun damage and other factors. Collagen is the protein that keeps the skin firm and tight. Consequently, the skin becomes loose and saggy and we see signs of aging such as a heavy brow, wrinkles, and loss of jawline definition. Ultherapy harnesses the power of ultrasound to deliver focused and targeted energy in the deep layers of the skin. This stimulates the skin to produce new collagen, tightening the skin and providing that youthful appearance we all desire. The layers addressed with an Ultherapy treatment are the same layers that are tightened with a surgery. But since Ultherapy is completely non-invasive and non-surgical you don’t have to worry about scars, risk of anesthesia, recovery time, or large investments. Another benefit of the Ultherapy brow lift treatment (or any Ultherapy treatment for that matter) is that you won’t look “done,” or look like you had plastic surgery. Instead you will look refreshed and rejuvenated, and your friends will comment that you look well rested, like you just came back from a vacation. Additionally, instead of pulling and putting on a bandage as in surgery, with Ultherapy your body will form its own natural collagen, giving a more natural result. The safety of Ultherapy has been proven as over 100,000 Ultherapy treatments have been done worldwide and the Ultherapy treatment is cleared by the FDA. There are many non-surgical skin tightening treatments with light, lasers, and radiofrequency, but Ultherapy stands apart from the rest for a few reasons. First, with Ultherapy we actually visualize the layer that we are treating rather than blindly treating multiple layers of the skin. Second, instead of treating multiple layers of the skin, the exact layer is targeted. And perhaps most importantly, Ultherapy penetrates to the deep layer of the skin, the areas that previously have only been tightened with surgery; other devices do not go this deep. The brow lift treatment is very fast; it takes less than 30 minutes. You will see your result slowly over the course of three to six months and enjoy your results for a few years, so you don’t need maintenance as with Botox. At A E Skin, patient comfort is very important, which is why we provide numbing cream and medications by mouth to keep you comfortable during the treatment. Some of these medications can make you sleepy, so you will need someone to drive you home after the treatment. Recovery after an Ultherapy treatment is easy. Some people have temporary redness, swelling, bruising, or tingling. But most people resume their normal activities right away. Click here for more information on Ultherapy at A E Skin.
