Why After 2nd Ulthera Treatment the Results Are Worse?

I did Ulthera treatment6 month ago but got just little improvement in my lower face. I wonder if with 2nd treatment could be better? But I read here experiences that with 2nd treatment is getting even worse! Why? Should I choose some other treatment?

2nd Ultherapy treatment is recommended after 6 months in some patients

A second Ultherapy procedure is likely to improve and lessen skin laxity, not make it worse. There is no reason how this could happen. I believe you are misnterpreting what the physicians are writing regarding Ultherapy on this forum. 

Read the Ultherapy ebook on the link below.

I'm not sure I understand how an Ulthera can make one worse.  There may be some patients whose skin does not repsond to Ultherapy and they don't get a lift that is desired, but when collagen is produced and the connective tissue tightens, it is not conceivable that one could get a worse result. This should be studied further.
