Ultimate radiance: Ultherapy as the new facelift

Staying young-looking is what most women dream about. But a smooth face, defined contours, supple cheeks, and nice neck bends aren't there to stay.

Gladly, facelifts are there to make all the sagging, drooping, and creasing disappear. Through time, however, some women who have undergone the surgery would complain about their faces looking unnaturally stretched, and recovery time for all the incisions taking too long.

As a result, cosmetic surgeons have strived to find ways to limit the amount of surgery needed to achieve smoother and younger skin for their patients. Unlike the old-fashioned kind that involves numerous cuts and tucks, the incisions made to tighten the skin are now much smaller and more discreet, allowing patients to recover shortly and with minimal scars.

But a great number of treatments nowadays deliver the same results without recourse to the knife. Treatments such as Ultherapy, performed by beauty enhancement experts like Francine Oca, help women erase the visible signs of aging just as good as or even better than surgery.

Ultherapy is a skin-tightening treatment using a new device that emits high-density radio frequency or ultrasound, delivering heat that shrinks the tissue underneath the skin. It also stimulates collagen production, resulting in a suppler and more moisturized skin that gets even better through time.

Barbara Walters featured Ultherapy in a "20/20" special a few years back. Sheree Bollman, a 48-year-old relationship coach and a mother of 4 biological and 7 adopted children, tried the treatment, and she was very happy with the results. Her husband had nothing to say but this: "You look gorgeous. Absolutely stunning!"  

Get the age-defying benefits of Ultherapy only from reliable facilities such as Live Gorgeous OC, where aesthetic plastic surgery nurse Francine Oca assists patients in getting the look they want. Visit this website for more information about the center’s services.

Thanks to science, the fountain of youth does not only exist in legends anymore.

Dysport (R). Like Botox, Dysport is made up of botulinum toxin. But clinical studies show that Botox's new competitor is more effective in smoothening frown lines and crow's feet. While there seems to be no difference between patients injected with both products when their faces are at rest, the remarkable difference shows when Dysport users smile, squint, frown, and laugh.

Radiesse. Because of its ability to deliver immediate results, dermal fillers have been gaining popularity among women who want to diminish fine facial lines and restore fullness in their faces. Radiesse is an FDA-approved dermal filler made from calcium-based microspheres suspended in a natural gel. After injecting it into the target areas, patients see the lines gone and their faces as full as the younger years.

Juvederm. Another popular kind of dermal filler meanwhile uses hyaluronic acid to reverse the signs of facial aging. Hyaluronic acid used to be targeted to easing arthritic pain and providing additional cushioning into the affected area. But nowadays, it is also being used to cushion the facial contours that have lost firmness and volume over time. It also brings water to the skin's outer layers for a soft and moisturized.
