This ultrasonic treatment is a bit expensive as compared to other non-invasive face lifting procedures. The average cost for the procedure ranges between $2000-$4000 for the therapy of an entire face. The cost changes depending on the body parts that need to be treated.
This Ultrasound therapy needs minimal preparation. One can continue with a normal diet, exercise, and work routines both before and after the procedure.
The 超聲刀 is delivered accurately through to the inner depths of the skin that heat the skin tissues to an optimal temperature.

Hence, the treatment uses your body’s natural healing process to tighten and lift your skin.

The treated areas can at times become red after the procedure with short-term sensations like tingling, swelling, and tenderness. In rare cases, there could be some numbness or bruising, but these will disappear within a couple of days from the procedure
Since the procedure is natural, it takes a while before you start seeing the full results. It uses the natural reaction of your body for healing.
Skin tightening and lifting results are visible usually 2-3 months post-procedure. The most appreciated thing about this procedure is that the results are long-lasting for many years.
