Ultherapy® has emerged as one of the leading non-surgical skin tightening solutions in the US today. The innovative treatment has been approved by the FDA for skin tightening and facial rejuvenation, and has been widely accepted by patients who are looking for effective aesthetic dermatology solutions that do not involve surgery. Dr. Steven Zimmet is an experienced dermatologist providing Ultherapy® treatment to patients in Austin, TX and other areas.
The advantage with the time-tested and proven ultrasound technology is that it is precise, targeted, and yields the desired outcomes while remaining gentle on the skin. The results are more natural looking because they appear gradually over a few months, as the natural skin collagen is stimulated to produce firmness and tightness of the skin. Dr. Zimmet will discuss various aspects of skin care with Ultherapy®, including the estimated costs of this treatment during the initial consultation.
Factors Impacting the Price
The cost of Ultherapy® treatment may vary from one dermatologist to another to some extent. Several factors go into determining the overall cost of treatment.
Location of the Practice
Ultherapy® cost may be different in two different regions because the cost of living index can vary from one state to another. This index will impact the average cost of most types of products and services, including dermatology services. For instance, the cost of Ultherapy® treatment in Austin, TX may not be the same as the cost of treatment in Boston, MA.
Reputation of the Practice
The quality of skin care provided at a particular practice can influence the cost of Ultherapy® treatment to some extent. A state of the art facility backed by experienced staff and having the expertise of a well-known dermatologist may be a better choice to receive this treatment, even if it may cost slightly more than an average treatment facility.
Extent of Treatment
The cost of Ultherapy® treatment may also depend on the part of total surface area involved in treatment. Ultherapy® is usually performed on various parts of the face such as cheeks, chin, jaws, brows, eyelids, or neck. In some cases, it may be performed on the entire face and neck or even other body parts. Therefore, the cost will depend on the scale of treatment sought and the time required to complete the procedure.
Average Cost of Treatment
The cost of Ultherapy® treatment on average may fall in the range of $5,000 to $8,000, if the entire face and neck area is involved. If the treatment area is limited to only specific parts of the face such as the eyelids or eyebrows, the cost may be in the range of $1,500 to $2,000. Sometimes the practice may offer a special rebate or discount for a limited period of time.
Patients can avail the benefit of lower prices during such times. If the patient is considering multiple treatments for different parts of the body, the practice may be able to offer a package rate, which could be more cost-effective compared to an individual Ultherapy® treatment.
