Lift Your Skin with Ultherapy®


In the quest for youthful and radiant skin, countless treatments and procedures have emerged over the years. Ultherapy®, a non-invasive and innovative option, has gained popularity for its ability to tighten and lift the skin.

What is Ultherapy®?

Ultherapy® is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen production in the skin. It is designed to lift and tighten sagging or loose skin, making it an excellent option for individuals seeking a non-invasive alternative to facelifts or other surgical procedures. The treatment was first approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2009 and has since gained recognition for its effectiveness.

How does Ultherpy® work?

Ultherapy® works by utilising focused ultrasound energy to target specific layers of the skin. The device emits ultrasound waves, which penetrate deep into the skin, reaching the foundational layer known as the Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System (SMAS). The SMAS is a critical tissue structure that, when tightened, can result in a visible lifting and firming effect on the skin.

The ultrasound energy delivered during an Ultherapy® treatment stimulates the production of collagen in the skin. Collagen is a protein that provides structural support to the skin, keeping it smooth, firm, and youthful. As we age, collagen production naturally decreases, leading to sagging skin and wrinkles. Ultherapy helps reverse these effects by encouraging the body to produce more collagen, gradually tightening and rejuvenating the treated area.

The SMAS Lifting Effect of Ultherapy®

One of the remarkable aspects of Ultherapy® is its ability to target the SMAS, a crucial tissue layer in the face and neck. The SMAS is situated deeper in the skin, and by stimulating this layer, Ultherapy® can achieve a more profound and lasting lift than other non-invasive treatments.

The SMAS lifting effects result in a more defined jawline, tighter skin on the neck and face, and a subtle brow lift. This targeted approach to skin tightening sets Ultherapy® apart from other treatments and contributes to its popularity among individuals seeking natural and noticeable rejuvenation.

Who is Ultherpy® for?

Ultherapy® is a versatile and safe procedure suitable for a wide range of individuals. It is commonly used to address several skin concerns, including:
Facial sagging: Ultherapy® can lift and tighten the skin on the face, neck, and décolletage. It is particularly beneficial for those experiencing mild to moderate sagging in these areas.
Fine lines and wrinkles: The increased collagen production results in smoother and more youthful-looking skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Brow lift: Ultherapy® can provide a non-surgical brow lift, lifting the eyebrows for a more refreshed and youthful appearance.
Jawline and chin contouring: The treatment can improve the definition of the jawline and chin, creating a more sculpted and attractive profile.
Décolletage rejuvenation: Ultherapy® can be used to rejuvenate the skin on the chest and décolletage, addressing signs of aging in this area.

It is essential to consult with a qualified medical professional or dermatologist to determine whether Ultherapy® is the right option for your specific concerns and skin type.


Am I suitable?

Whether you already have concerns about ageing or you are looking to prevent ageing, Ultherapy provides a multi-layer treatment which addresses ageing from deep within. It is the only non-surgical technology which allows deep penetration to the SMAS tissue which is the key anatomical layer for face and neck lifting. It therefore not only boosts collagen and elastin, but also lifts the face and neck tissue from the root. 

What does the procedure involve?

An ultrasound conducting gel is applied to the skin and an ultrasound probe is used on top to visualise the different facial tissue layers. Energy is delivered precisely to different layers based on the ultrasound reading to ensure safety and effective results. 

When can I return to normal activities?

There is no downtime associated with Ultherapy. Mild redness and swelling following the procedure are self limiting to under an hour. Clients can return to work, studies and other activities immediately. 

When will I see results?

Most people will begin to see results as early as 4 weeks. Results will continue to improve throughout a 3-month period. 

How long will the results last?

Results from Ultherapy are semi-permanent, meaning that the results will last until natural ageing catches up. Many people keep up with annual treatments to prevent ageing.
