How Long Do Ultherapy® Results Last?
Just as the aesthetic outcome of Ultherapy® can vary among individuals, so too does the length of time the results last. The skin-lifting and tightening effects of Ultherapy® can typically last between one to three years after the full results emerge (usually within six to ten months after treatment); however, these estimates can vary from patient to patient based on the following factors:
- Environmental exposure
- Rate of aging
- Intensity of treatment
When aesthetic benefits of Ultherapy® gradually begin to fade over time, Dr. Matthew White, a published expert on Ultherapy®, may recommend another customized treatment session to address previous problem areas and any new regions requiring treatment. Usually, Ultherapy® treatments are repeated every two years, on average, to re-boost production of new collagen. Dr. White may also propose combining additional treatments such as wrinkle relaxers, dermal fillers, fat injections, and laser skin resurfacing to achieve a more comprehensive rejuvenation.
When aging of the skin, connective tissue, musculature, and bone reach a certain point, it may be time to finally consider facial plastic surgery options that can provide you with more dramatic, long-lasting improvement. A consultation with Dr. White can inform you about which treatments are best suited to your needs and goals.
