WHAT is IT?
Ultherapy is a non-invasive, in-office, ultrasound treatment that stimulates growth in the deeper layers of you skin, producing new collagen.
It is designed to lift and tighten your chin, neck, eyes and brows. It is also used to improve fine lines and wrinkles on the chest.
IS IT PAINFUL?
Yes! I would recommend asking your doctor for pain medicine before the treatment. Just be sure you have a ride home.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
60 to 90 minutes depending on the areas you are treating
IS THERE DOWNTIME?
For me… None, but everyone is different. Some people bruise following the treatment. To be on the safe side, I wouldn’t have the treatment before an important event.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
At Dr. Vivian Bucay’s office, which is where I had the treatment done, it ranges from $1500 – $4000 for the upper and lower face and neck.
The chest is $1800
The eye area is $500
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?
At least 2 to 3 months, but for some it takes even longer.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
Everyone is different. The results are subtle. For me, it shrunk my small ‘turkey neck’ and tightened the skin there.
I also notice my face is plumper and slightly more youthful looking.
WOULD I RECOMMEND THE TREATMENT?
If you are concerned about your chin and neck, AKA “turkey neck.”
I think it’s worth it.
