Good question, Dlona. Ultherapy is an excellent treatment to lift, tone and tighten skin for individuals with mild to moderate skin laxity. The reasons you are seeing mixed reviews is that people who are not good candidates for the treatment are having the procedure done by inexperienced providers. This will lead to less than optimal results. Please find an experienced Ultherapy provider for an in-person consultation and evaluation to find out if the procedure is right for you. Hope this helps answer your question.
A good candidate for Ultherapy have moderate skin laxity. This cosmetic procedure is focused on stimulating the growth of new collagen deep within the skin. The production of new collagen occurs over time, so results can become more apparent over three to six months. Once the treatment is completed, you will notice a slight lift and your skin feeling a lot tighter. When done correctly, Ultherapy is effective, safe and should not cause any loss to the volume in the face. Watch the link I've attached below to learn more.
