With age, your skin loses its elasticity, making wrinkles, crow’s feet, and fine lines increasingly visible. At The Elite Wellness Resort, ophthalmic plastic surgeon, Justina Taube, MD, offers nonsurgical facelifts with Ultherapy®. Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to tighten and lift your skin, making you appear more vibrant and youthful.

A facelift is an outpatient procedure designed to counteract the signs of aging. It’s a quick and convenient way to minimize the appearance of loose skin, wrinkles on your face, neck, or chest, and drooping of the brow area.
At The Elite Wellness Resort, Dr. Taube performs noninvasive facelifts with Ultherapy. The advanced treatment system uses ultrasound technology to transform your skin. What’s more, there are no incisions, downtime, or risk of complications during your recovery.
A facelift with Ultherapy uses targeted ultrasound energy to support the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that keep your skin healthy and supple. During your appointment, Dr. Taube uses a wand-like device to emit low-frequency sound waves.
These sound waves heat up three layers of tissue, affecting your muscle, skin, and superficial wrinkles. The ultrasound energy stimulates your collagen and elastin, resulting in less sagging, firmer skin, and fewer wrinkles.
At The Elite Wellness Resort, Dr. Taube uses Ultherapy for various procedures, including:
You might also benefit from Ultherapy if you want to tighten loose skin without the risk of a more invasive procedure.
At The Elite Wellness Resort, a facelift with Ultherapy usually takes about 90 minutes.
At the beginning of your appointment, Dr. Taube cleans your skin of oil residue and applies an ultrasound gel. Then, she places the Ultherapy device against your skin and gently moves it over the areas of your body being treated.
The device emits targeted ultrasound energy that causes intermittent sensations of heat and tingling. If you’re uncomfortable during the procedure, let Dr. Taube know. She can adjust the settings or provide you with a topical anesthetic.
After a facelift with Ultherapy, you can return to work, school, and other daily activities right away. Still, it may take several weeks or months for you to achieve your desired results. That’s because a facelift is a cumulative treatment, meaning the benefits increase over time.
