Is Ultherapy right for me?
I have been doing Ultherapy for about 2 years in my practice now and while I find it to be very effective, it is not an alternative to a facelift. No non-surgical procedure will deliver the same results as a facelift. New protocols have much less discomfort with Ulthera treatment, and the best results seem to be in patients in their 40's to mid-50's.
Ultherapy is a wonderful tool in my office for those that do not want any incisions, or downtime. It does not get the results of a facelift by any means. Managing a patients expectations is critical. If someone thinks they will get a facelift result with ulthera, they will be very disappointed. But for those that would not have a surgery, and would like to tighten their skin a bit and get a little lift, ulthera can be the treatment of choice. The new settings for ulthera are less painful than what they were also. Good luck.
