Which is better ultherapy or fillers?
The results of Ultherapy last longer than fillers and patients only need to come in for treatments every 9 to 12 months. Because Ultherapy does not add volume to skin, it is not as successful on its own. Unlike fillers which add volume to the skin, sagging will only be mildly improved with Ultherapy.
Can ultherapy make you look worse?
Answer: There are reports of fat loss in the face and neck after Ultherapy. Fat loss from Ultherapy can actually make the face appear more hollow and aged and in the neck, the platysmal neck bands can look worse. Risks of fat loss from Ultherapy can be minimized if the surgeon does not treat too deep.
