Ultherapy Knees Treatment| Does Ultherapy Work on Knees?
Could saggy knees be giving away your age? Are short skirts or bathing suits off-limits, because loose knee skin makes you look or feel older? Unfortunately, no one’s immune to wrinkles around and above knees. Prime examples? Three A-listers — all known for being in great physical shape. Specifically, Demi Moore is reported to have gone under the knife for a knee lift to restore drooping skin around the knee area. Additionally, the media took both Gwyneth Paltrow and Cindy Crawford to task for “old lady knees”, “kninkles”, “knobbles” and “elephant knees” in 2011. Fortunately, there’s a safe and effective nonsurgical alternative to plastic surgery to lift and tighten the knees. Find out the best way to tighten loose and sagging knee skin in our guide to Ultherapy Knees Treatment:
How Does Ultherapy Knees Treatment Work? What to Expect Before and After?
It’s an unfortunate fact that drooping knee skin or wrinkling around the knees just happens. No matter your weight, size or body type, the natural course of aging causes the skin on the body to sag and droop. As we age, the criss-cross network of collagen weakens. As a result, this supportive scaffold no longer holds the skin in place like it once did. Additionally, we lose elastin, which means the skin doesn’t bounce back into place as quickly or as easily it did when we were younger.
This is exactly where Ulthera comes in. By sparking a rejuvenating process of neocollagenesis and elastin remodeling, it results in skin tightening and lifting around and above the knees.

Ultherapy Knee Treatment: Can You Use Ultherapy on the Legs?
Ultherapy is the best and only skin tightening treatment that’s FDA-cleared for the face. Currently, it’s an off-label treatment for the leg in the area around and above the knees. However, Merz, the makers of Ultherapy, have studies in the works for FDA consideration.
The reason we love Ultherapy for knees is because it’s so precise. Specifically, Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to bypass the surface of the skin to reach clearly-defined depths under the skin. With three transducers, depth can be adjusted to 1.5 mm, 3.0 mm and 4.5 mm beneath the skin. That’s particularly important for the skin on the legs, which tends to be thin and less dense. For Ultherapy Knee Treatment, we recommend a shallower depth of treatment. Specficially, we can typically provide safe and effective skin tightening treatment with the 1.5 mm or 3.0 mm transducer.
Ultherapy vs Plastic Surgery? What’s the Difference? Which is Better on the Body? What is the Downside?
Another great Ultherapy benefit is that it’s a noninvasive alternative to plastic surgery. In fact, many plastic surgeons advise against a surgical knee lift, because there’s nowhere to hide the scarring that occurs when the skin is cut away. During a neck lift or facelift, scarring can conveniently be hidden behind the ears. That’s clearly not an option on the exposed knee area. What’s more, Ultherapy downtime, side effects and recovery are typically minimal and easily tolerable, unlike surgery.
