Are there any non-surgical ways to tighten and lift the SMAS?

I do not see any non-surgical machines that actually address the SMAS layer, am I correct? I have heard of something called Ultralift (not Ultherapy) but I see some doctors on here do not think it is reputable.

Non-surgical Treatments to Tighten and Lift the SMAS

Hi and thank you for your question! There are a number of non-surgical energy-based treatments that target SMAS and induce stimulation of new collagen and other components of extracellular matrix. My personal favorite and recommendation is Ultherapy as it is FDA-cleared and visualizes the deeper layers of skin during treatment, guiding your clinician to target the right depth and layers of skin for best results. I hope it helps and good luck!
