Ultherapy, and ageing

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Ultherapy is designed to improve skin tone, namely tighten loose skin, and reduce wrinkles. Before and afters will tell the story if you have some. If performed correctly Ultherapy will help improve skin tone in patients with mild to moderate laxity. Tone is just one part of the equation, natural loss of fat over time also needs to be addressed, with either fat transplantation, or preferably HA fillers like Juvederm. 

Your specialist who performed Ultherapy can guide you with the before and afters that they took as to the balance between skin texture, tone and volume to give you the best results. 

All the best

Ultherapy cannot age your skin it can only help improve it. I suggest you see an expert and determine if there are other hormonal or aging facotrs contributing to your facial changes.  Best, Dr. Emer.
