Thank you for your question and photograph. As a new parent myself and plastic surgeon, I can relate to the sleepless nights and changes that occur in the face. At 26 it is unlikely that you have significant sag in your skin, but more than likely your new found folds are from weight gain with pregnancy. The folds near your nose are referred to as nasolabial folds (NLF) and are often treated with filler directly under the fold or more commonly in the cheeks. Ultherapy is indicated for lifting and tightening of the skin in the face, neck and chest. The treatment can also be used as a collagen booster for the skin itself, referred to as a Glow treatment. Without seeing you in person, it is difficult to say if Ultherapy would help your problem, but certainly would be considered during a consultation.
Many plastic surgeons off a free consultation for patients looking to target problem areas on their face. Your best bet is to find a plastic surgeon in your area who has Ultherapy and performs filler themselves. After an in person examination, I'm sure they can help guide you towards the best correction of your NLF.
Best of luck and congrats on the new little baby!
I would see what your face looks like after you lose your baby weight.

Thank you for your question.
Ultherapy is not necessary to help your needs. It is used for skin tightening.
You may benefit from facial fillers to get rid of the smile lines.
