Ultherapy Laser worth the trouble?
Doctor Answers 13
Hi and thank you for your question!
Its hard to say without a picture if we would recommend Ultherapy for you. I can tell you we have had AMAZING results and NO complications or negative side effects with it here at our office. Just like any non-surgical device there is a range of results and some people seem to respond better than others. We have been performing this treatment multiple times a day for several years now and have seen suburb results (in ONE treatment) with very little to no downtime. We have never seen fat melting or any negative side effects at all. In fact, Ultherapy is one of the safest devices we use. Like anything, it must be used by experienced and very well trained providers (our NP and PA's are the only ones who perform Ultherapy in our office).

Ultherapy for skin laxity is user dependent as well as patient dependent
This treatment can be excellent if 2 factors are to be carefully considered. Firstly you must be a candidate for this - namely it is good for mild to moderate skin laxity. Secondly the operator must be experienced to deliver the treatment. I suggest seeing a Board certified dermatologist or plastics for an opinion. See video for more on Ultherapy ultrasound. All the best, Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.
Since every patient is unique, Ultherapy may be great for some, but not so much for others. Consulting with a board-certified surgeon in your area is the best way to determine which treatment is best for you. Best of luck.

Ultherapy worth it?
Hello lfurnari,Thank you for sharing your question however in the absence of photos more specific thoughts are not possible. As a point of correction Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound waves to create the effects desired not a laser. Is it effective? Yes. However like any procedure whether it be surgical or non-surgical outcome will always be dependent on patient selection because all procedures (invasive/non-invasive) no matter how good they are have limitations. Thus many times a review or complaint that appear "negative" may be more related to something done that may exceed a specific treatments limitations or on the wrong patient thus leading to a negative review or outcome. Can the experience of the professional doing the procedure affect the outcome? Yes. This is true for any procedure surgical or non-surgical. Your best advice will come from an in person consultation with a professional who is well versed in both the surgical (neck lift/etc.) and non-surgical approaches to the concerns you have expressed with a very open conversation of your expectations; only then will you have the information you seek. Wishing you well.

Ultherapy is helpful in the right setting
I agree with the others. Also, it is important to have before and after pictures because the results are so gradual. One of our staff members had the treatment done and thought it had not help. We took pictures and she was amazed at the results after only 2 months. Optimal results may not be seen for 6 months. It also works well when combined with other treatments. The combination with either Radiofrequency treatments or Poly-L-Lactic acid injections can provide an enhanced results. I also agree that one should have realistic expectations. Make sure that you know all your options. I hope this helps.
