Tightening and Lifting the Face and Neck without cutting?
A combination approach is best
You can achieve the tightening with either the Profound or the Ulthera. One uses Radiofrequency Needles under the skin (after anesthetic) to increase the heat to a certain high temperature to stimulate collagen production. The other uses focused ultrasound to create the collagen production. I would personally recommend Profound due to the relative severity of your laxity; it gives a more reliable result.
Next would be lifting the skin, which will need to be done with fillers. Voluma to the upper cheeks and fillers also to define the jawline as well as reduce the folds around the mouth.
Finally, I do think that Botulinum Toxin and Fillers would be needed to restore your forehead to a more natural position; your brow has fallen and it will need help to sit up straighter.
A combination of these treatments should give you about 2/3 the result of a facelift. Even if you get a facelift you will need to have fillers. However, understand that the time frame for fillers is 6 months- 2 years and the Profound will last about 2 years. So you are going to need to commit to significant ongoing treatment to maintain your effect. Good luck!
Non-surgical facelift vs. Surgical Facelift
You are going to get the best results from a surgical lift. You have extensive skin laxity in the face and neck and this is best addressed with surgery. However, if you are completely adverse to surgery, there are non-surgical options. You just need to manage your expectations. I would recommend a combination of dermal fillers such as Voluma, Vollure & Volbella, Botox, lasers and Profound RF.
Non-Surgical Face Lift
Nonsurgical options to help your face
1) Viora (Radiofrequency) laser tightening
2) Laser resurfacing (I like the cool helium plasma)
3) Threadlift (I prefer the Sillhouette lift)
4) Fat grafting to cheeks, nasolabial fold, lips, and prejowls
