Question: I have been planning for a face lift this past year but just lost my job. I would like a lower-cost alternative. What types of non-surgical face lifts do you do?
Answer: Well there is a variety of different devices that can perform non-surgical facial rejuvenation but the most exciting new technology is Ultherapy which is ultrasound-based and has been FDA approved for lifting of the brows which no other non-surgical device has even been given a lift indication by the FDA. Other alternatives would be Botox and fillers which can give patients a very refreshed and rejuvenated appearance, somewhat like a face lift. These modalities are not going to be as effective as a surgical face lift but certainly are a lower cost alternative.
