If you want to get a tauter and lifted appearance for your eyelids, but a fear of surgical process is stopping you. Don’t stop! You can get tauter, lifted and youthful eyelids without any invasiveness. Previously, the only way you could give your eyes a lift was through a surgical blepharoplasty. A blepharoplasty surgery involves your surgeon to make an incision above the eyelid to remove the excess skin that causes droopiness of eyelids.
A Surgical Blepharoplasty vs. Ultherapy
A surgical blepharoplasty requires administration of anesthesia which is not required in an Ultherapy. The surgical procedure may take longer than 2 or 3 hours, however, an Ultherapy would be completed in 30 to 50 minutes. Ultherapy does not involve any complications and side effects like a blepharoplasty do.
The downtime required by a surgical eyelid lift surgery is quite longer than an Ultherapy. An eyelid surgery possesses a risk of difficulty in closing the eyes while sleeping which can be either temporary or permanent.
What is an Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a safe, FDA-approved treatment option that does not involve any surgical procedure or invasiveness. The treatment is based on sound energy that is designed to improve the appearance of eyelids by skin tightening, lifting, and toning. Focused sound waves are delivered to the treatment area by an Ulthera system.
These waves can target deep tissues of the skin to restore the youthfulness of eyes completely. A specific device is used to prevent the damage caused by heat when these waves penetrate in the deeper layers of skin. The heat will also stimulate elastin and collagen formation to make the skin firm, tight and elastic.
Your medical aesthetician will monitor the changes in skin layers with the help of ultrasound imaging. Ultherapy can be performed on the brow area, face, and neck.
Results of an Ultherapy
Usually, the results of an Ultherapy treatment becomes visible right after the treatment but the results will keep enhancing for more than 3 months. There are no long term side effects of an Ultherapy but you may experience slight itching or mild swelling for few hours.
The results of an Ulthera therapy can last for more than a year. You will have to undergo follow-up treatments in order to maintain the results.
