Is there an age limit for undergoing this it covered by medicare and how expensive is it how long does it last?


The more lax the skin, the more difficult it is to lift with non-surgical methods.  The treatments all help in fighting the effect of gravity against the skin. Dermal fillers help to support the skin against gravity, and tightening treatments such as the Pelleve, and threads help to lift the skin against gravity too.
