The Effects of Facial Aging

Facial aging is a natural process that affects everyone as they get older. It is characterized by various changes in the skin and underlying structures of the face. These changes can include:

  • Sagging skin
  • Skin laxity
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Loss of elasticity 
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Dull complexion

Non-surgical face and neck lifting procedures can reduce signs of aging, eliminate wrinkles, and improve the appearance of sagging skin without the need for incisions. Treatments at Wunderbar include the following:

  • Morpheus8: Morpheus8 targets deep layers of the skin and subcutaneous tissue to stimulate collagen production and promote skin tightening, resulting in a more youthful and radiant appearance.
  • Ultherapy: Ultherapy targets specific layers of the skin, penetrating deeper into the dermis and underlying superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS), which is the same layer targeted during facelift surgery.
  • NOVA Thread Lift: NOVA thread lifts offer a minimally invasive alternative to address facial sagging and achieve facial rejuvenation without the need for surgery.

RF Microneedling with Morpheus8

Morpheus8 is a form of radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. Also known as RF collagen induction therapy, it is a cutting-edge cosmetic procedure that combines the benefits of traditional microneedling with the added advantage of radiofrequency energy. RF energy heats the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin fibers. When combined with microneedling, which creates controlled micro-injuries in the skin, the collagen-inducing effects of RF are amplified, resulting in improved skin firmness, texture, and elasticity.


Before the procedure, we may apply a topical anesthetic before placing the Morpheus8 device directly onto your skin. The needles will penetrate the skin and administer radiofrequency to stimulate collagen production. Your provider will adjust the needles to the target depth required for your desired results. The treatment adjusts the temperature of your skin to 104-107.6 degrees Fahrenheit to trigger collagen production for the most effective anti-aging results. (1)

Advanced Ultrasound Treatment with Ultherapy

Ultherapy works by delivering targeted ultrasound waves deep into the layers of the skin, bypassing the surface and targeting the underlying tissues. This deep tissue heating stimulates natural collagen production, which helps lift and tighten sagging skin. Ultherapy can be used on the face, neck, and décolletage to improve overall skin firmness and create a more youthful appearance.


Ultherapy is a simple procedure, so minimal preparation is required. During the treatment, we will ask you to lie flat for the best results. We will start with a topical ultrasound gel. After the gel is applied, we will pass the device across your face and you will feel a warm, tingling feeling where the therapy treatment is applied. The ultrasound energy causes the cells to move, creating frictional heating that triggers the healing process in the body for long-term results. (2) The duration of an Ultherapy treatment session depends on the size and number of areas being treated. Typically, a treatment session lasts up to 90 minutes, although this can vary according to your specific treatment plan.

Enhanced Facial Lifting with the NOVA Thread Lift

A NOVA Thread Lift is a non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedure that provides patients with a minimally invasive alternative to a traditional facelift. This innovative treatment utilizes PDO (polydioxanone) threads, which are biocompatible materials commonly used in surgical sutures. The threads are strategically inserted into the skin, creating an immediate lifting effect and stimulating collagen production for long-lasting results.


Depending on your specific needs and the extent of the treatment area, we may administer local anesthesia or topical anesthesia to ensure patient comfort during the procedure. We will make small entry points in inconspicuous locations to insert the PDO threads effectively. These incisions are often minimal and designed to be hidden within natural skin creases or hairline. The biocompatible PDO threads are then carefully inserted under the skin using a fine needle or cannula. We strategically place the threads in target areas of concern to achieve the desired lifting effect

Results of Nonsurgical Face and Neck Lifting

Nonsurgical methods are best for addressing mild to moderate wrinkles and skin sagging. Although nonsurgical procedures are an effective method for reviving your skin and achieving a youthful appearance, they cannot change your appearance as drastically as surgical methods like a facelift. If you are experiencing moderate to severe skin sagging, our team will be able to help with a face lift or brow lift. You will not have to worry about the side effects of anesthesia.

Corresponding Procedures 

Some patients want to address more than one concern during one appointment. To help patients achieve their desired results, we have several corresponding procedures that we can easily perform during your appointment.

Botox and Fillers

Botox and filler treatments are injectables that can enhance your appearance and help you achieve a more youthful look. Botox limits muscle movement to prevent the formation of wrinkles and reduce the appearance of current wrinkles. Fillers add volume to the face in areas where you have lost volume from age. We offer a set of long-lasting fillers to help you achieve natural results as well for the best results. See our complete list of botox and fillers.

Who are non-surgical face and neck lift procedures for?

Non-surgical face and neck lifting treatments are suitable for individuals who wish to tighten sagging skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, or improve overall facial contours without undergoing surgery.

Are there any side effects or risks associated with Morpheus8?

Side effects from Morpheus8 treatment are typically mild and temporary, including redness, swelling, and sensitivity in the treated area. These usually resolve within a few days. 

How soon can I see results from Morpheus8 treatment?

Results from Morpheus8 treatments are gradual and improve over time as collagen and elastin production increases. Patients can start noticing improvements within a few weeks, with continued improvement for several months following the procedure. 

How much downtime is there after Ultherapy?

One of the many advantages of Ultherapy is minimal downtime and a relatively quick recovery period. Following the treatment, some patients may experience mild redness, swelling, or tingling, which typically subsides within a few hours to a few days. There are no post-procedure bandages, and you can generally resume your daily activities immediately after the treatment.

Are incisions made during Ultherapy?

No, Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment that does not require any incisions. The ultrasound energy passes through the surface of your skin without causing any cuts or scarring.

What is the best age for a thread lift?

There is no specific age range for a thread lift, as candidacy for the procedure depends on individual aesthetic goals and overall health. While many patients seeking facial rejuvenation are between the ages of 35 and 65, suitability for a thread lift will be determined through a comprehensive evaluation during your personal consultation.

Does a thread lift fix a double chin?

While a thread lift can improve the appearance of a mild double chin by inducing some degree of lift, it is not specifically designed to address substantial fat deposits under the chin. In cases where excess fat is a primary concern, liposuction or other targeted treatments may be recommended to achieve optimal results.

Can I still get a face or neck lift later if I need it?

Yes, if you need a face or neck lift later, you can receive one. Age and lifestyle changes change the appearance of your skin. As collagen production decreases and gravity pulls on the outer layer of your skin, you may see the skin around the eyes, nose, and mouth start to sag. If you have moderate to severe skin sagging, a face or neck lift will help reverse it.
