I hope this helps.
It is important to understand the results you can expect from ultherapy. Ultherapy does NOT achieve nearly the same results that a facelift or a brow lift achieve. If facelift results is what you are expecting then Ultherapy is NOT for you. Ultherapy is a non-surgical option for younger people who may not yet be ready for surgery, or those that are trying to avoid surgery. Ultherapy is essentially a no down time procedure and has this benefit over more invasive procedures.
It is important to meet with a practitioner that performs Ultherapy frequently and can give you an honest assesment of your candidacy for the procedure and the results you may be able to achieve.
Ultherapy- safety and results.
Secondly, candidate selection is vitally important- not everyone is suitable for Ultherapy.
Thirdly, the results are variable, but variables can be controlled - such as finding a specialist competent in performing this procedure. Like any other procedure, Ultherapy has its risks, but these risks are minimised but not eliminated by seeing a Board Certified Plastics or Dermatologist.
All the best,

Ultherapy is both patient and technician dependent. This means that the patient has to be the right candidate and it is important to receive your treatment from a practice that has an expert in Ultherapy. In our practice, we see amazing results with patients who have mild to moderate skin laxity.
I recommend you have your Ultherapy consultation and treatment by a qualified provider and a reputable practice where they do a lot of these treatments. The more treatments a provider and practice has done the greater the skill and experience. We have been doing Ultherapy on a daily basis for several years and have had any instances of fat loss. With any nonsurgical treatments, there are always a range of results and not everyone can expect the same types of changes. However, I feel confident in saying that if done by an experienced and qualified provider (our NP and PA's do the treatments here), it does not melt fat. It absolutely tightens and lifts the skin more effectively than any other nonsurgical procedure on the market.
Please feel free to call our office or come in for a complementary consultation.

Choosing the right procedure and specialist
1. Is Ultherapy the best treatment for the individual? Some people go through with the treatment because it is less expensive than surgical options and is non-invasive. However, if their specific situation and expectations call for a surgical facelift, for instance, they may be disappointed with results from the Ulthera treatment. In some cases, the combination of Ulthera with other treatments such as injectables may help them reach the desired results.
2. Did the patient speak to a specialist in facial procedures prior to deciding on the treatment? Discussing your expectations with a facial plastic surgeon is highly recommended. He or she is best qualified to let you know which treatment or combination of treatments will help you achieve the results you want.
