Reviews of ultherapy treatments on RealSelf, Today.com and LipoAdvisor indicate that ultherapy is often effective for tightening and lifting facial skin, and therefore may be worthwhile. However, the procedure can be painful, and the results require upkeep that may add to the cost.
Ultherapy is marketed as a non-invasive alternative to a surgical face-lift. The procedure works by using an ultrasound machine to stimulate collagen cells in the face and neck. Full-face and neck treatments can range in price from $4000 to $5500, while spot treatments can cost between $700 and $1000. Many customers claim that the procedure improved the look of their face and neck. Many say that the procedure is quite painful, and some reviews indicate that the procedure was also ineffective. Ultherapy patients may require additional treatments on an annual basis.
