Your body shouldn't have all the high-tech fun — there are plenty of new ways to rejuvenate and refresh your face, as well, including new advancements in topical treatments and a sci-fi way to reduce wrinkles.
Another ultrasound superstar, Ulthera uses focused ultrasound to heat up the dermis and tighten collagen bundles. "By bypassing the skin's surface and heating the dermis directly," says Dr. Sadick, "your body reacts by building new collagen." This results in tightened skin and a reduction in wrinkles, making it a great treatment for neck lifts, sagging breasts, and jowls, says Dr. Sadick. You only need one treatment to see results, and that will cost you anywhere from $2,500 to $4,000, depending on the area treated.
