Aesthetic Health’s Dr Julia Sevi is a global key opinion leader for Ultherapy, as well as being a member of the Merz innovation board for Ultherapy in the UK: offering pioneering techniques, to produce unprecedented results. Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA for lifting the skin on the neck, chin, and brow, and improving lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
How does Ultherapy work?
Ultherapy utilises ultrasound waves to penetrate deep into the middle layers of skin tissue to stimulate collagen production and encourage regeneration. By using controlled heat energy at optimal depths below the skin, Ultherapy effectively initiates your body’s natural responses to strengthen weakened tissue without damaging the skin’s surface.
Ultherapy is excellent for smoothing areas of cellulite and strengthening areas low in collagen. Deep tissue surgery has previously only been performed by surgeons through invasive surgical techniques, but, due to Dr Julia Sevi’s extensive research and experience, and the use of Ultrasound imaging, this non-invasive Ultherapy treatment is just as effective as other more invasive methods – without the painful risks. The procedure can produce sensations ranging from a hot stone massage to the nipping or prickling sensations familiar to those who pluck their eyebrows.
What are the benefits of Ultherapy?
You’ll be able to see an improvement in your skin tone after only 3 weeks, and a complete transformation of your skin’s elasticity at 6 months post-treatment, with results being very long-lasting. As new collagen builds, gradually lifting, it will tighten and smooth the skin; this will continue to develop over the year following the treatment. The procedure lasts about an hour and a half, but with no invasive methods used, there’s no need for recovery time.
