Ultherapy is an excellent treatment option for men with mild to moderate skin laxity that want to restore facial firmness and look younger. It initiates the body's own collagen production for a natural and refreshed appearance.
Ultherapy is one of the only non-invasive procedures cleared by the FDA for both men and women. It is also the only cosmetic procedure that uses ultrasound imaging to allow our doctors to see deep layers of tissue during treatment in order to tailor where the ultrasound energy is targeted.
The major disadvantages of Ultherapy mostly arise from variations in the technique and skill of the practitioner. There is the danger of a botched procedure: this could result in permanent side effects that could worsen the patient's appearance post-procedure.
The best candidates for Ultherapy are in their 30s or older and notice sagging skin, in particular, on their eyelids, brows, neck, and chin. It's important that patients have some skin elasticity remaining, so that their skin is more likely to respond to Ultherapy treatments.
The results can be worth it. In fact, Ultherapy is often regarded as a great option for patients with moderate facial sagging, and in fact has won year after year as the best non-invasive lifting treatment.
However, although it can cost over $4,000 for a full-face treatment, the price can be lowered depending on the specific area or areas you want treated. Most patients who undergo Ultherapy are so satisfied by the results that they don't consider the cost a waste of money.

Jennifer Aniston, Christie Brinkley, Vanessa Williams, and Paulina Porizkova are just a few of the stars who use Ultherapy as their go-to alternative to old-school facelifts. If you've ever wondered how everyone in Hollywood is all endlessly youthful—but still natural—it's probably Ultherapy.
On a scale from one to ten, when asked, “How painful is ultherapy?”, we can easily rate it with confidence as a low-pain treatment. This treatment is not painful, but you may experience a warm sensation beneath the surface of the skin due to collagen stimulation.
The results of Ultherapy tend to last around two years but they can last longer if you take steps to boost your collagen production and keep your existing collagen healthy.
Although temporary redness, swelling, and other side effects may occur, the skin itself should not become damaged as a result of Ultherapy. Keep in mind, Ultherapy works by delivering ultrasound waves to the tissue well below the superficial surface of the skin.
the risks, it's important to remember what Ultherapy is doing. It is delivering heat to stimulate collagen at the deep, foundational layers of your skin, so it's normal to feel a little pain.

Ultherapy, which means (Ultrasound Therapy) is a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment used to improve, lift, and tighten loose skin and wrinkles. This is usually done on the face and other parts of the body where loose skin occurs.
Most patients notice the most dramatic improvements in the elasticity of their skin within two to three months of their initial treatment. The skin tightening benefits will continue to increase for up to six months after your treatment.

Since Ultherapy is not surgery and not invasive, your recovery after a 60-90 minute in-office procedure is virtually immediate. You will need someone to drive you home after the procedure, but most times you can go about your day the same day as the procedure.
