Got jowls? Uplift can change that

Back To Blog Overview

Got jowls? For that matter, got sagging skin in the jawline or neck? There is a remarkable new way to treat these issues. It’s called the Uplift. The uplift procedure uses radiofrequency energy to tighten sagging skin by stimulating collagen growth.

Traditionally, radiofrequency energy has been applied on top of the skin. With Uplift, very small openings are created and a small wand is placed under the skin to apply radio frequency energy directly to areas where collagen growth will tighten sagging skin.

Because the energy is applied under the skin, higher levels of energy can be used since it doesn’t have to travel through the delicate outer skin layers. The result is increased collagen production and greater tightening. The small wand also allows for very accurate placement by the doctor.

Uplift helps restore elasticity to the skin. In addition to tightening jowls, the procedure can be used to tighten skin on the stomach, back, arms—even sagging skin above the knees.

For years, a surgical facelift was the only way to successfully treat jowls and loose, crepe-like skin on the neck. Uplift can delay the need for a face lift by many years while offering significant results.

If “Got Jowls?” is the question, at Reflections we have the answer: Uplift.

Ulthera by Ultherapy is a non-surgical skin tightening and muscle lifting treatment (that muscle-lifting bit makes it very unique among non-surgical treatments). – It can be used for face, neck, or body. – It’s performed only by doctors at our New Jersey medical practice. – Cost varies by the size and depths treated, but costs between $1,000 to $5,000 on average (at our practice, as of 2021). – There’s no downtime, although some patients are a little red directly after (but this can easily be covered by makeup before you leave our office – it’s the same kind of redness you might have on your body after a massage). – Results usually appear by month 3, but finalize around month 6 (it takes a while to grow new collagen). – Lifts muscle and loose skin – Tightens and firms skin – Improves wrinkles, jowls, fine lines (but likely won’t erase them completely in the way an aggressive laser, Botox, or filler would)
