The Mini-Lift Without Surgery: Review And Cost

For those who are looking for safe, effective skin rejuvenation without undergoing a surgical procedure, Ultherapy could be the answer

What is Ultherapy? Think of it as a mini-facelift that happens without any surgery. Using ultrasound technology, your treatment provider can add volume to areas of sagging skin, tightening your face and neck as well as smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.

How Does Ultherapy Provide A Mini-Lift?

Ultherapy works by directing ultrasound energy to the layers just underneath the surface of the skin. The heat produced is just enough to stimulate collagen production. When this occurs, the skin will naturally tighten and lift. As the skin fills out, fine lines and wrinkles will also disappear.

How Long Does It Take To See Results?

The sessions are simple and relatively pain-free. Getting a small area done will take about 30 minutes, while getting your entire face and neck done may take up to an hour and a half. Some patients will leave their doctor’s office and notice results rather quickly, within the first few days. The wonderful thing about Ultherapy though is the positive cumulative effect that it creates. As your body produces collagen, you’ll truly begin to see the results of Ultherapy during the 2 to 3 months after treatment. If you’re pleased with the lifting and tightening results after just a few weeks, imagine how pleased you’ll be after a couple of months!

Does Ultherapy Require Recovery Time?

Unlike surgical cosmetic treatment options, Ultherapy doesn’t require any downtime. There are no incisions or injections. You won’t need any anesthesia. After the treatment is finished, you can go about your normal daily activities. If there is any mild swelling or discomfort, your doctor will instruct you on how to ease these symptoms. You’ll also be instructed to avoid soaking in hot tubs and spas while your skin goes through the healing process. With Ultherapy, you won’t experience the bruising and intense swelling that often happens with other treatments. It’s the best option for people who want to get right back to going about their daily lives.

Is Ultherapy A Stand-Alone Treatment Option?

Ultherapy treatment is an excellent option for those who have mild skin sagging and light wrinkles. It works well for those who don’t yet need more aggressive cosmetic treatments. Many patients are pleased with the overall lift and smoothing effects of Ultherapy and return every couple of years to get maintenance treatments.

For other patients, Ultherapy is the perfect complement to previous cosmetic surgeries. For those who have had a facelift or brow lift in the past, Ultherapy can help maintain the results of the surgery as the normal ageing process continues. If skin becomes a bit loose or fine lines begin to appear, Ultherapy can provide the collagen boost needed to freshen your face up again.

How Much Does Ultherapy Cost?

The price of Ultherapy depends greatly on where you live. If you live in a large city, the price will be higher. For instance, in Toronto the cost of Ultherapy can run from $750 to $4,750 for treatment. If you are treating a small area of your body such as just above your brows or your neck area alone, you may pay $750 to $1,300. Because prices vary, it’s helpful to get a quote from your doctor.
