Loose skin can make you look older than you really are. The good news is that you can tighten it without undergoing surgery, needles, and downtime. Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment that can treat sagging skin and jowls with essentially no recovery period. If you’re intrigued by this procedure, keep reading to learn how it works and how much it typically costs.
How Ultherapy Works
Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy delivered to the muscle and fascia layers under the skin to lift and tone. Ultherapy® is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that lifts and tightens the neck and jawline, and improves lines and wrinkles on the chest. The layers of the skin and tissue beneath are clearly visualized by ultrasound during the treatment to ensure the best result and make sure that energy is deposited where it should be.
You are kept as comfortable as possible by a combination of over-the-counter and prescription medication for pain relief and relaxation. Your highly-trained nurse performs the procedure under our dermatologists’ supervision.
Fortunately, Ultherapy is an affordable treatment, especially compared to the price of a facelift. While the cost of Ultherapy will depend on your unique skin and the areas you get treated, the average cost is anywhere between $2,300 result for you, and the price of your treatment plan.
Good Candidates for Ultherapy
It’s important to understand that Ultherapy cannot lead to the same dramatic results of a surgical facelift. However, it can make you appear more youthful. If you are concerned about your sagging skin but don’t want to go through the recuperation, scarring, and risk of surgery, this may be the perfect procedure. We like to recommend Ultherapy to patients with early signs of jowls and skin laxity as it can not only improve your appearance but also slow down the process of aging.
