The last 3 months have been difficult for everyone, and it may have taken its toll on your physical and mental wellbeing. Although keeping safe is most important, with restrictions easing it may be time to start looking ahead to how you can take positive steps to feel and look better.
We can help you achieve the best version of yourself. When you're happy with your appearance, you feel confident which has an immediate impact on your wellbeing! We offer many treatments that can help you feel like 'you' again – one of our most popular is Ultherapy®.
What is Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy is a non-surgical skin lifting procedure that uses micro-focused ultrasound energy to lift and sculpt your face, jowls, neck or décolletage.
How does Ultherapy® work?
Ultherapy® works by delivering the ultrasound energy to your skin's deep tissue without affecting your skin's surface. This initiates the body’s natural healing response stimulating new collagen and elastin production to lift and tighten your skin.
Why produce new collagen? Collagen is the protein in the skin that keeps it looking plump and youthful, but and as you age this production tapers off. If you feel like your skin is sagging, this will 'reset your clock' without the need to go under the knife. Increased collagen causes the skin to tighten, plump, and lift itself back to the elasticity that you experienced typical up to 5 years ago!
Which areas can be treated with Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® may be used to treat:
Who is suitable for Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is typically suitable for men and woman above 35. It's ideal if you're starting to notice your skin feeling looser or sagging and want to proactively slow down the ageing process.
You'll even benefit from Ultherapy® if you've already undergone a surgical facelift. With a facelift, you'll continue to age after surgery and so Ultherapy® may be incorporated into your post-surgical care plan to help you maintain and prolong the results you've obtained from surgery.
Who cannot have Ultherapy®?
You aren't able to have Ultherapy® if you have:
- Open wounds or lesions on the face and neck
- Severe or cystic acne of the face and neck
- Pacemakers and electronic device implants in the treatment area
Is Ultherapy® painful?
Ultherapy® delivers ultrasound energy to the skin which is felt as heat and from my experience, most patients tolerate the treatment well. As you're able to communicate with your clinician during the treatment, we can move onto another treatment area or pause for a rest should you feel any discomfort.
How long does it take to see results?
Ultherapy® initiates your body's healing process to produce new collagen which means the process takes typically 3 months to see visible results and the good news is that they last for 6 - 12 months. The good news is there's no downtime, no sudden tell-tale changes in your appearance and no scarring - so you can continue to live your life as normal post-treatment.
