Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound to stimulate new collagen growth deep within your skin. The collagen produced provides natural lifting and tightening of the skin on the face, neck and body areas.
What can Ultherapy treat?
Over a million Ultherapy treatments have been performed globally. This safe and popular treatment is used for:
Lifting the brow line for more open youthful eyes.
Firming and lifting sagging jowls.
Firming and tightening skin on the neck.
Reducing cleavage wrinkles.
What are the advantages of Ultherapy?
Unlike surgery Ultherapy doesn't give a sudden tell tale change in appearance - instead full results develop gradually over 6 months, which means no one need ever know. In addition there are no scars to hide and you will continue to age naturally rather than have an appearance frozen in time.
How many treatments do I need?
You only need a single treatment for one area to produce results that last up to 18 months and which can be extended with booster treatments. Ultherapy procedures take between 30-180 minutes depending on the areas you have treated. A full face treatment generally takes 90 minutes, but you may decided to have your neck and cleavage treated as well, in which case the procedure will take longer.
There is no downtime after an Ultherapy procedure so you can return to your work or social engagements immediately afterwards. Results will start to be visible between 2-3 months with full results showing at 6 months which is when you will have complimentary review.
How does Ultherapy work?
During an Ultherapy procedure the underlying tissue is heated with focused ultrasound, triggering the body’s natural production of collagen in that area without damaging the upper layers of skin.
Ultrasound imaging enables your practitioner to actually see the targeted tissue during the procedure, so that they can precisely direct the energy to where it will be most effective.
Ultherapy is the only treatment available that utilises this technology. Ultherapy is the only ultrasound device FDA cleared as effective for skin lifting on the brow, neck, beneath the chin and improving lines and wrinkles of décolletage.
How do I find out if this treatment is suitable for me?
Arrange a 30 minute consultation with our team - who will examine your concern, check your medical history and then recommend an appropriate treatment plan whilst explaining the cost and any associated risks.
