How many years does Ultherapy results last?

Thank you for your question. Ultherapy is an innovative, FDA-cleared ultrasound treatment to help reverse the effects of the aging face. This ultrasound treatment uses the body's own regenerative response to encourage your body to make collagen, which you bank. Results may last up to a year to 2 years depending on the patient. For most of our patients, they will reconsider repeating the treatment after 2 years.

In most cases, the results from a Ultherapy treatment last from 1 to 1.5 years. If you choose to undergo repeat treatments, then the results will obviously be longer lasting. Patients typically choose to undergo repeat Ultherapy treatments if their skin sags more than they would like after an initial treatment. As with cosmetic surgery procedures, however, results can vary from person to person.

How long Ultherapy lasts depends on the person

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Although patients can see immediate effects it can take anywhere between 2-6 months for full results. How long the results last can vary from person to person, their aging process, and how hard they are on their skin. This would include sun exposure, trauma to the area, smoking, and other factors. It also depends on the individual’s continuous care for their face and body, weight control etc.

Ultherapy sets back the aging clock

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Because Ultherapy causes a structural response in the collagen layer under the skin, it is more like setting back the clock than a temporary effect. How long the visible results last depend on each individual's response which in turn depends on the age of the patient and other factors.
