A patient asked 1 year ago
I’m 44 years old. I’m beginning to notice jowls, submental fat and loose neck skin beginning, along with forehead wrinkles and minor lines elsewhere. I’d like to address but there are so many options. In speaking with local providers, some have recommended ultherapy, some Morpheus8 and even others facial fat transfer with neck lipo. I’m attaching pictures as I need unbiased opinions. Thanks for any help and insight! Ps, will not do Botox, had a bad systemic reaction once.

Ultherapy, Thermage, or Morpheus8?

 
Hi and thank you for your question! Based on your description and pictures, I do think that you will see best results from Ultherapy as it can nicely tighten and lift the skin, although you need to keep in mind that there is no single silver bullet and as aging is an ongoing process, most treatments can at best achieve some incremental improvements. I am sorry to hear that you have had bad reactions to Botox in past, but in general, when it comes to treating dynamic lines, there aren’t many other options that are as effective. Also, please note that while treatments like Ultherapy can work great by stimulating collagen and tightening skin, they cannot do much for volume loss, which is the hallmark of aging and that is best addressed by filler injections. I hope it helps and good luck!
