When we recently received an invitation that stated, “Plastic Surgery Can Wait,” our interest was oddly enough piqued (you can never start the investigation too early). Despite the fact that we keep telling ourselves that we want to age gracefully, without medical intervention, truthfully we want to look as ah-may-zing as Christie Brinkley when we’re 60… so a little research about what’s out there can’t hurt, right?
So we headed over to South Granville’s super-chic Project Skin MD facility for the launch of their latest cutting-edge skincare technology, Ultherapy. After enjoying tasty nibbles and sips of bubbly, Project Skin MD’s Medical Director, Dr. William McGillivray, shared that Ultherapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound therapy to give the skin a ‘lift’. Unlike other energy-based devices currently used in aesthetic medicine, Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared technology to lift and tighten the skin.
This in-office procedure gives your depleting collagen a kick in the butt, and we loved it when Dr. McGillivray compared collagen to a bank account: Each month a little money is being withdrawn, but are we adding funds back in? Ultherapy targets the deep, structural skin tissues where collagen lives and stimulates it into rebuilding, which in turn lifts and tightens the skin. Although patients are able to see immediate results, the ultimate lifting takes place over a few months, and you only need one session!
Known as the secret to the stars, many celebrities – like Courtney Cox and Kim Kardashian – have been turning to this state-of-the art technology to keep them looking red-carpet ravishing. If you’re looking to turn back the clock without needles, knives or any downtime, this might be the perfect treatment for you. Project Skin MD, one of the Vancouver’s top dermatological clinics for preventive anti-aging assistance, offers neck, chin and brow lifts using Ultherapy. Sign us up!
