It can be an alternative for a loose neck, but it is one of several potential alternatives. It would be determined on a case by case basis depending on the patient's desires, expectations, and anatomy.

Ultherapy is used for tightening and lifting the skin of the neck and under the chin; however, an in-person evaluation is necessary to determine whether or not it is the best option for your individual case. There are many different treatments from surgery to liposculpture that may be better for your specific condition. When you have a hammer, everything looks like a nail. That is why you should always see a board certified dermatologist who has a variety of treatment options to best tailor your treatment and present you with options.

Yes, I would recommend as it is a great non invasive alternative but very patient specific. Make sure to look for qualified physicians that have a long history of experience with the Ulthera. Obvioulsly, this can only be determineid on consulation. It is also beneficial when used in conjuction with submental liposcution.

Ultherapy will tighten the neck skin. But without examining and consulting with a patient it is impossible to determine whether ultherapy or lower face and neck  lift will give the patient the desired results.

Ultherapy is a proven and effective treatment for tightening the brow, face and neck but it is not a surgical procedure

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

In order to make an appropriate recommendation for treatment of a patient's sagging neck it would be necessary to have an extended consultation with the patient to determine the actual problem and the patients expectations. A loose saggy neck with muscle bands and some excess fat would best be treated with face lift surgery to remove the excess fat if present, reshape the muscle and tighten the skin. This is a surgical procedure and requires extensive surgery and recovery time.

On the other hand if the patient wants to get some significant improvement of the neck (probably 30 -50%) with out surgery or recovery time then Ultherapy would be a good choice. Ultherapy which is focused ultrasonic energy which passes through the skin with out any injury and causes tightening of the underlying muscle and fascia which in turn pulls the loose skin into a tighter and more attractive position. It takes just a small amount of time in the office, does not require anesthesia, and does't require any recovery time. It's great for the patient who understands the limitations and does not want to undergo surgery or have extended recovery. It does not give the more extensive results of surgery but then again there is significant improvement and not surgery.
