When I went for consultation, the told me that I need to do extra lines which cost extra. Is it true that I have an option of it or they just want to get extra money from me for doing extra lines?

Ultherapy cost may differ depending on the number of lines
different doctors do Ultherapy differently and the more extensive costs more. Yes, the number of lines creates a greater expense, no doubt. 600 vs. 1200 lines makes a big differenece int he time of treatment, cost of the treatment and the expected outcome.
Yes, Ultherapy costs are usually calculated according to the amount of lines that are used. The typical face allows us to give prices for areas because we know around how many lines will be used for that area, but sometimes many extra lines need to be used and requires an extra cost. My office typically does not "upsell" lines however and we use the recommended amount of lines suggested by the current Ultherapy protocols. The handpiece used to deliver each line has a set cost and a set number of lines it can fire, so we know exactly how much each line costs us to fire. I would shop around since some offices are certainly more expensive than others for the same amount of lines.
