Does Ultherapy really have much effect on the skin? Is it long lasting? What are the risks? Thank you.

Ultherapy- does it work and how long does it last?
Ultherapy is safe and effective
Ultherapy is the only technology on the market with an FDA indication for lifting and tightening the skin in the face, neck and chest. This means that it has gone through extensive testing to prove that it is both safe and effective for this use. Just like any technology, it is important to apply it in the right patients. Even something as safe and pure as water can lead to drowning when used incorrectly.
One of the things I like best about Ultherapy is that you can see the layers of tissue you are treating. The energy is focused within the skin and underlying SMAS (tissue lifted during a formal face lift). Your provider is able to see these layers and able to focus the treatment where it is most effective. The main reason to avoid fat, is not due to concern for fat loss, but rather to keep the treatment where it is most effective---skin and SMAS. Energy applied to fat will not lead to lifting or tightening.
I would recommend you see a plastic surgeon who is familiar with Ultherapy.
Best of luck,

We have had wonderful results with Ultherapy in our office for skin lifting, tightening and rejuvenation.
It is probably one of the safest treatments available (if done by an appropriately trained provider in a reputable practice), with virtually no downtime .
It rebuilds the collagen, strengthens the tissue, improves the integrity of the skin and connective tissues.
We recommend 1 treatment every 1-3 years, depending on the condition of the skin at the 1st treatment, the desired goals, and that persons aging process.

Risks generally are all minimal and temporary, but include redness, minor swelling, and possible bruising. Most people experience some combination of tingling and slight numbness and tenderness that may last a couple weeks. Usually quite mild.
