Non-Surgical Cheek Lift
Not all lifts for the midface require facial plastic surgery. When the first stages of drooping begin in the cheek and midface area, there are non-surgical options that can give you a rejuvenated appearance. Dr. Rousso offers Ultherapy, which is a minimally-invasive skin tightening procedure that can help improve the elasticity and tone in your midface, without the expense or downtime required with cosmetic surgery.
When the skin and tissue in the cheeks begins to sag, it can cause visible signs of aging that impact the other features on the face. Drooping cheeks can create the impression of bags under the eyes and cause lines to appear on the nasolabial fold around the nose and mouth. This can be caused by loss of collagen and elastin in the skin, a normal occurrence as you get older. Stimulating collagen and elastin production through Ultherapy can tighten the skin, giving a visible lift to your cheeks to minimize eye bags, nasolabial lines and looseness in the cheek area.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is an FDA-cleared process for lines and wrinkles that uses ultrasound energy to impact the deeper layers under the skin to spur the production of collagen and elastin. Using ultrasound energy is not new. It has been used to promote healing in the medical field for many years to reach the area under the skin to trigger collagen production. Using a specialized device, areas in the cheek can be targeted to increase collagen production with precision. The procedure is not painful, just a tingling sensation as the energy sparks a response in the skin cells that will initiate collagen production. There is no downtime after the procedure, letting you get back to your normal activities quickly without setting aside time for recovery.
