Ultherapy Works Best, Where?
- Asked 2 years ago
Where on the body is Ultherapy the most effective?
Depends on the patient
It would depend on each patient. Most predictably, it has a lifting effect of eyebrow and jowls. I've seen consistent lifting of bilateral cheeks as well. Off label uses of Ultherapy for other body parts are a little too early to assess its effectiveness, in my opinion.
Ultherapy works very well on foreheads and cheeks to lift jowls
Many patients are happy noticing their tighter foreheads and seeing their jowls lifted from having the cheeks tightened. The jawline becomes straighter with less sagging of the jowl over the jaw.

Ultherapy skin tightening for the face and neck
Ultherapy is a great non-invasive skin tightening treatment that provides effective results for the face and neck. It is a great treatment option for patients with mild sagging who do not need to undergo a surgical facelift. It can be used to lift and tighten the following areas: brows, eyelids, forehead, neck and jawline.
Ultherapy has proven particularly effective in treating mild jowls, and laxity along the jawline, cheeks and neck beneath the chin. Our patients have experienced generally excellent results with Ulthera. We have used it with success on many body areas including the extremities. For example, it can help lessen a small fat protusion. We participated in an advanced user symposium in which we discussed many uses of this technique.

Ultherapy is for facial lifting, other areas still being studied
It is important to note that the FDA clearance for Ulthera is for facial lifting, primarily the forehead/brow area. However, there are studies being done off-label to see how well it works on different parts of the body. This is not well-studied enough yet to make any specific recommendations, though the possibilities are very interesting.
