Designed to specifically lift and tighten the skin and deeper tissues, the Ultherapy procedure uses ultrasound waves to penetrate deep into layers of the tissue where previously only surgeons could reach, stimulating regeneration.
1 hr 30 mins.
Appropriate pain relief will be provided prior and even during the treatment.
Mild tenderness, sensitivity and possible swelling after treatment. Should be able to get back to normal activities within 24 hours.
Between 3-8 weeks you should start to see an improvement in skin tone, after a further few months sagging lessened and elasticity increased. Optimum results at 6-8 months post treatment.
Anyone with early sagging and laxity of the face particularly jawline, neck and forehead.
This highly effective, non-invasive procedure uses ultrasound waves to penetrate deep into layers of the tissue to initiate the body’s natural response to stimulate the growth of fresh, new collagen and strengthen weak collagen.
Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver energy precisely at optimal depths and temperature. The use of ultrasound imaging allows us to see the layers of tissue being treated; ensuring energy is delivered safely and effectively, where it will be most beneficial.
There is no disruption to the surface of your skin and it can be used to specifically target problem areas, including lifting brows, neck and chin, and smoothing the décolletage. What’s more, there’s no downtime so it can fit comfortably into a normal day.
Ultherapy can ultimately be used anywhere on the body and is particularly effective in lifting, toning and tightening the neck, improving lines and wrinkles on the décolletage, lifting and tightening arms, buttocks and knees.
Ultrasound energy is used to initiate the body’s natural response to stimulate the growth of fresh, new collagen. The treatment is designed to achieve a fresher, more youthful look by specifically targeting problem areas.
The 30-90 minute procedure can produce sensations ranging from a hot stone massage to nipping or prickling like plucking your eyebrows.
Because Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment, patients won’t need any recovery or downtime. In fact, you can resume normal activities immediately without having to follow any special post-procedure measures.
In a few patients, results can be seen in as little as 14 days, but for the majority the benefits will be evident from about three months, as new collagen builds, gradually lifting, tightening and smoothing the skin. This will continue to develop over the year following treatment.
Unlike lasers, radio frequency and other technologies, Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver energy at optimal depths, temperature and precision. Also unique to Ultherapy is the use of ultrasound imaging which allows Dr Sevi to see the layers of tissue being treated, ensuring energy is delivered safely and to where it will be most beneficial.
As the ultrasound energy is delivered you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated.
Following the treatment you can resume normal activities immediately without having to follow any special post – treatment measures.
Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment but the full results appear over two to three months as new collagen builds, gradually lifting, tightening and smoothing the skin.
The length of an Ultherapy treatment will depend on the areas treated and the bespoke treatment plan as discussed with Dr Sevi at your initial consultation.
Usually a face and neck procedure will take up to 90 minutes whilst a décolletage treatment will take around 30 minutes.
Comfort levels vary from person to person but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered.
At Aesthetic Health we take measures to ensure the experience is as pleasant as possible and patients usually leave comfortable and excited about the results to come.
