Can Ultherapy cause fat loss when getting it done on the cheek area?
the answer to your question is without a doubt yes, Ultherapy does cause fat
loss. The given depth of penetration for
4.5mm is below the skin; and the tissue
that is directly below the skin is fat.
This is where the fat layer in the face lives. Any plastic surgeon who has ever done a face
lift will tell you that looking at Before/After pictures of Ulthera patients, patients
will show a loss of volume, due to treatment related fat loss.
Ultherapy and fat loss
Ultherapy is FDA approved for skin tightening. This device builds collagen and provides a lifting effect. With this technology (microfocused ultrasound) there should not be any fat atrophy. If fat loss (atrophy) has occured, it would be due to inappropriate use of the device (pulse stacking: pulsing heat in the same location too many times). This should not occur with a properly trained physician doing your treatment.
Fat atrophy is not something that should be seen when done correctly
Thanks for your question. The great thing about Ultherapy is that the
fractionated ultrasound lines that are generated are always exact and
precise, depending on the transducer used. Ultherapy needs to be done by
skilled clinicians, working in a board certified dermatologist or plastic
surgeon’s office to ensure the best lifting results you can get. Fat atrophy is
not something that should be seen when done correctly.
Ultherapy for facial tightening has not caused fat loss in my NYC practice
I have not heard from any of my colleagues that they have seen fat reduction from Ultherapy. I have been doing Ultherapy for several years with good patient satisfaction and am not aware of one case of fat loss. I actually tried to reduce the submental fat of the neck intentionally, early on when beginning the procedure and did not see any fat reduction. Ultherapy is FDA cleared for tissue tightening.
This is not to say that anyone could guarantee it wouldn't happen to you, but it's not a side effect we're aware of to discuss with our patients preoperatively.
Ultherapy and Fat Loss
Microfocused ultrasound should not cause fat loss if used appropriately especially if used properly. Best, Dr. Emer.
No fat loss with Ultherapy
Because Ultherapy uses microfocused ultrasound, it should not affect the fat layer which is at a deeper level. Non-focused technologies such as radiofrequency have been associated with fat loss at times but this is not common.
Does Ultherapy Cause Fat Loss?
The Ultherapy treatment does not go deep enough to affect the fat layer, therefore, it does not cause fat loss. Ultherapy lifts, tightens and tones skin. It does not replace lost volume. Fillers are the best treatment to replace lost volume. Ultherapy and fillers work great in combination to give the best results.
Ultherapy does not cause volume loss - Buffalo Niagara Ultherapy specialist
i have done Ultherapy on hundreds of patients and I have never seen a patient who returned 6 months later or a year later with complaints of volume loss.
The reasons are the following : the technology uses ultrasound to image depth and the depth is never beyond 4.5 mm and into the SMAS layer and not into fatty tissue.
Volume loss is another problem altogether associated with aging which can be repleted with facial fillers, fat grafting, etc.

hello, we have not seen fat loss when performed by properly trained practitioners, the transducers are used for tightening at various depths in the skin. a good consult with an experienced user can go over all of this. good luck
Ultherapy should not cause fat loss
There are great scientific studies to prove the clinical benefits of Ultherapy if you are deemed a good candidate by a doctor. It should not cause fat loss in the face. There are two great ways to non- surgically lift the skin. One is Ultherapy which is uses ultrasound technology to stimulate your collagen production to tighten and lift. The other is Sculptra which stimulates your body's collagen production to add volume and also helps lift your skin. Some people need volume, some people need skin tightening/lifting and some people even need both.
