If you are paying attention, it is quite clear that there are some industry standards on pricing, $3500 full face, $1500 upper face, and $2500 for lower face. I certainly would not pay more than these fiqures. We offer Ultherapy in our practice and our pricing structure is competitive, and we often run promotionals. Pricing, reflects demand, effectivness, and some material factors such as the cost of equiptment, labor and consumables.
Despite the implication, this is not a facelift, and if you are looking for a facelift you will be dissapointed. There is a lot of talk about the treatment working in the surgical plane, but what it lacks is the lifting and directional repositioning of tissues at this level.
Because we are a surgical practice, I can not see charging anything near surgical prices for this procedure. I believe we will see the pricing for this procedure plateau as the expectations become in line with the reality.
Find out how your physician deals with the dissatisfied client. If you need a second procedure, and most will benefit if should not be at the same price, if you go on to a surgical procedure, there should be some credit applied.
