Optimal age for Ulthera is 40's to 50's
Ultherapy, a noninvasive, no downtime procedure for skin lifting, works by using highly focused bursts of ultrasound to stimulate collagen regeneration under the skin. This in turn causes a lifting effect, but the results depend on the body's ability to respond by making new collagen. With age we are less able to do this so, like Thermage, Ulthera isn't really an alternative to a facelift. We have treated patients in their 60's with some results but not as much as younger patients.
