Ultherapy Costs- Find Out What They Include

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Treatment costs for Ultherapy in our practice is very straightforward.  For upper face we charge $1500, for lower face we charge $2500 and for full face we charge $3500.  This is easy to compare, what is difficult to compare is what this includes.  We guarantee our treatment result, which means that if you do not obtain the result that you were expecting, we will retreat you for free. 

Why do we do this?  The reason is that the clinical trials for Ultherapy showed that not all patients obtained a beneficial result after one treatment.  The percentage was about 80-85%.  While this is a fantastic result for a non-invasive procedure, it is not 100%.  For our practice, this means that perhaps 1 in 5 patients will spend their money and be disappointed.  Fortunately, those same clinical trials showed that if non-responders were retreated, all of them obtained beneficial results.  With this in mind, we feel confident that by retreating our disappointed patients that we will obtain great results for everyone.

Why is this important?  With Ultherapy, there is a good chance that you will need a second treatment to get the results that you want.  When you discuss the procedure with your physician, you need to ask what happens if you do not get a great result.  Some practices across the country charge full-price for the second treatment, some a discounted price and some nothing at all.  This potential second treatment needs to be factored in to compare prices. 

Good luck.

Ultherapy Cost Varies by Location, Practitioner

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Ultherapy costs vary greatly from office to office and from city to city. In most major cities, the costs can vary from $2,500 to $4,000 for treating the face and neck, and this will be somewhat less in more rural areas and smaller cities. I know that this may sound like a weird answer, but we do know that in cities like New York and Los Angeles, one will pay somewhat more than what someone might pay where I live in Nashville, TN. What are the reasons? The procedure uses what are called disposables (transducers) and these cost the doctors money — and for Ulthera, this is a big cost. Then you need to consider all the things that most of us do not consider — rent, person’s salary doing the procedure and the time for performing the treatment — all of which adds dollars into the overall cost.

The reality is there is not a huge profit margin for most physicians doing this, and we like to make sure that the results justify the costs, and in this case, they most certainly do almost all of the time. Keep in mind that some might charge much less — this is fine if you want to go there — but you are also paying for the experience of the provider, and this is extremely important.The décolleté has recently been approved for treatment — most offices that have Ulthera will soon be offering this treatment. Prices again will vary, from about $1,500 to $2,500, depending on where you live.

Having the Ulthera machine for over a year and a half now, I have changed my pricing to reflect what areas we are trying to address as everyone is not created equally. When someone calls to obtain pricing, we provide them only with a range and ask the individual to come in for a consultation so we can discuss the areas of concern.  A larger area of treatment would require more treatment lines vs a smaller face so it is not fair to charge the same amount. In addition, I perform the treatments myself as I like to tailor the treatment for each individual.

Depending on the areas to be treated the cost of Ultherapy can range from $1,350 to $3,850. Cost per treatment may depend on many factors including area to be covered, quality of the skin, and the age of the patient. Beware of treatments that appear to be too inexpensive. There are apparently some knockoff machines. Real Ultherapy machines are expensive to own and operate, so beware of something that seems too cheap.

Ultherapy pricing explained - UK

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}


Ultherapy's success depends on delivering the right amount of energy to the skin. So more energy delivered means more cost to the physician (that is how Ultherapy charge the physician). So generally speaking if you are quoted a lower price than normal, you may be only being offered less energy and so may get less of a result. The amount of energy can be calculated as "lines" so do ask how many "lines" are you quoting for.

Experience is also critical with Ultherapy as the results take so long to develop, there is a slow learning curve. 

Prices vary from £1500-5000 for a face treatment in the UK but it does largely depend on experience and energy delivered. 

Ultherapy pricing

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Ultherapy pricing varies based on the number of areas treated. It ranges from $500 for the mouth area to $4500 for full face and neck. During a consult, a treatment plan specially for you will be created and the pricing will be determined based on the treatment areas you need.  Body treatments such as buttock, inner thigh, knees, and chest depend on the area needed and have to be determined specifically for each individual.  

I hope this helps!

The cost of Ultherapy can vary based on the geographic area you live in as well as the area of concern that will be treated. Patients who are interested in the Ultherapy procedure should schedule their consultation with their plastic surgeon to determine the best treatment plan.

Ultherapy pricing is based on the amount of energy that will need to be used on an individual to obtain their expected and realistic outcome. It is always best to consult with the professional whose office is offering the therapy in order to discuss desired outcome and the tailored treatment scheme for your skin. Our office always give a range of pricing over the phone only because each individual patient may need more or less energy in the treatment. Best to have a consult and have a professional dertermine your personalized treatment plan.
