One of the most common signs of aging is lax skin on the face and neck. In the past, a surgical facelift or neck lift was the only way to resolve this problem. Recently, however, ultherapy made its debut! This incredible treatment can improve jowls and neck sagging with virtually no discomfort or downtime. If you’re intrigued by ultherapy, you may be wondering how long it lasts. Keep reading to find out!
How Ultherapy Works
Through the power of ultrasound energy, ultherapy causes thermal injury to the deeper layers of the skin, thereby stimulating new collagen formation to then tighten the skin. In addition to lifting the lower face, jawline, and neck, it can also improve the appearance of the decolletage skin. Most ultherapy treatments last between 60 to 90 minutes and cause minimal pain and discomfort.
If you receive an ultherapy treatment, you’ll need to wait 5 to 6 months to enjoy complete results. During this time period, your body will naturally generate new collagen, lifting and toning your skin. You can expect the results to last as long as your body continues to produce new collagen and until the natural process of aging resumes again. You are welcome to opt for additional ultherapy treatments if you believe you need them.
Benefits of Ultherapy
The most noteworthy benefit of ultherapy is its ability to tighten skin without surgery. It can help you look years younger without disrupting your lifestyle. Ultherapy is also the perfect treatment to pair with laser resurfacing, injectables, and other anti-aging treatments.

Good Candidates for Ultherapy
Ultherapy may be a great treatment for you if you would like to improve sagging skin but are not interested in the discomfort, anesthesia, and downtime typically associated with a surgical facelift.
It’s ideal if you have mild to moderate skin laxity and early signs of jowling. If you do receive ultherapy treatments, remember that while they can make you look younger, your results won’t be as dramatic as they would be with a facelift.
