High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is one of the most exciting new breakthroughs in cosmetic rejuvenation.
What is the cost of Ultherapy?
The fees for Ultherapy will vary according to amount of areas treated. To treat a small region such as the brow, the cost may range from $750 to $1,000, while covering the whole face and neck may cost closer to $4,000 or $5,000.

How long does an Ultherapy session last?
Your pre-procedure instructions will contain specific information. Since the procedure is completely non-invasive, there is usually no recovery time, other than a few moments immediately after the procedure.
Are there any side effects?
Almost every cosmetic or other elective procedure has at least some potential side effects, and Ultherapy is no exception. Mild tingling and a warm sensation are extremely common during and immediately after the procedure. In subsequent hours, some people experience redness, swelling, or tenderness. In the days following treatment, some can have mild bruising or temporary numbness. All these side effects are rare and temporary.
How long do Ultherapy results last?
People who avoid the sun, do not smoke, and take care of their skin are the best HIFU candidates. For these individuals, the results from just one Ultherapy treatment may last several years. In other cases, the results are still very long-lasting.
When will I notice an improvement?
Dr. Weber is one of the most skilled and experienced Ultherapy providers in Colorado. His expertise shows in that many of his patients begin seeing significant results within one to four months.
Is Ultherapy a good alternative to a facelift?
No. A facelift is a much more invasive procedure for patients with severe facial aging who want dramatic results and are willing to go through the surgery and recovery of a traditional facelift. Ultherapy is designed for people who want to make some smaller changes in their appearance non-invasively. HIFU is also ideal for post-facelift patients. It’s a simple and cost-effective way to help maintain surgical results.
What’s the difference between Venus Freeze, vShape, thermage and Ultherapy?
The first three devices all produce good results. However, they rely on radio waves as opposed to ultrasound waves. Since the ultrasound waves bypass the patient’s skin, Ultherapy energy waves may be almost twice as hot as radio waves. That means improved collagen stimulation, more elasticity, and better results.
What’s the Ultherapy recovery time?
One of the biggest advantages of HIFU is that it is non-invasive in every sense of the word. There are no needles or pricks. Ultherapy is also non-invasive in terms of your busy life. Most people go directly from Dr. Weber’s office to work, school, or home with little discomfort and almost no loss of focus.
