Hi Designer,

If you agreed to treatment of your neck before the treatment, then you should have had your neck treated on the day of your Ulthera.  If your Ultherapy treatment did not include your neck, and you paid for it, then you should recieve a refund.  It costs the physician about $1 for each pulse or "line" of Ulthera, the neck usually requires about 200-250 lines.  Your physician is not only saving the $200-$250 in cost, but is keeping the fee that you paid for you neck which can range between $1500 to $2500.  I have found that when patients treat both their face and neck that they do get a better result with more definition of their jaw line and neck.  Good luck and be well.

You should get exactly what you paid for.  If you paid for this in advance and he felt it was really not needed then you should recieve a refund.  I am sure he will if you request.

Should the neck be treated with the face during Ultherapy ?

I find that the neck treatment is a key component of the facial treatment as it tightens the area under the jaw and helps with the jowls. I would return and have him/her complete the promised treatment for the neck.

Your physician should know best, but only they should answer why they changed the plan last minute. Why didn't they know your skin was good before they scheduled your treament. In my practice the cost for a full face vs. face and neck is different, the latter more expensive, so if I don't do the neck, there is less of a cost.
