Is There Such A Thing As A Non-Surgical Face-lift?

Blogger  Sharon Haver recently realized that it takes more than good habits to maintain a fresh youthful visage.  So she turned to Verve Medical Cosmetics to get the skinny on Thermage, an incision-free device that reduces the tell-tale signs of aging skin by stimulating new collagen growth, which tightens the skin.
