Non Surgical Facial Rejuvenation: A Sum of Parts
Yesterday, after finishing a busy clinic, I was reviewing our experience with Ulthera-focused high energy ultrasonic energy- for non surgical facial rejuvenation. What we, Elizabeth/Crescent/Andrea/LaNesha, realized is that the most amazing results came from a combination of fillers, Botox/Dysport, and Ulthera combined. This gave an amazing refreshed look without looking "Plastic". In addition, the patients simply looked globally better, in a way that required close inspection to understand exactly what happened. There were a series of subtle highlights that made the look very appealing but no so drastic as to make people say when did you get plastic surgery. I should not be surprised by this realization, as we have seen the same idea with facelifting surgery. Often, facelifting alone is inadequate to achieve the most desirable result and we find that fat injection or other supporting procedures are needed to achieve the most natural outcome. This is very exciting to me and I feel closer to the idea that we can offer real, viable, alternatives to cosmetic surgery in the right person. I concluded that Ulthera alone may have its limitations, the combination of techniques is very powerful and exciting!
