Frequently Asked Questions
The literal price of Ultherapy, however, isn’t so small. Treating a full face and neck in averages from $2,500 to around $3,000. Treating a smaller region, like the brow, will set you back $750 to $1,000.
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA for lifting the skin on the neck, chin, and brow, and improving lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. Ultherapy uses micro focused ultrasound to lift and tighten loose skin over time, without any downtime.
Improvement typically continues for up to three months. The results will last as long as your body continues to produce new collagen and until the natural aging process takes over again. Based on your skin’s response to Ultherapy, you can decide if additional sessions are necessary.
Most patients only need one treatment. However, based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to the ultrasound energy and the individual’s collagen-building process, some patients benefit from additional treatments.
Collagen is widely used in cosmetic surgery for treatment of wrinkles and skin aging. Following Ultherapy, many patients are reporting nerve damage. Ulthera warns that the procedure may cause muscle weakness, numbness, pain, paresthesia, and tingling that “typically” resolves within 6 weeks.

There is no age limit for Ultherapy. As long as you are in good health and your skin condition is good, there is really no age limit for Ulthera treatments. It’s the quality of the skin and the degree of laxity that counts.
With Ultherapy, there is no downtime! You can return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure without any post-treatment restrictions or requirements. Your skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Use lots of moisturizing to cool this down and keep yourself hydrated.
