Ultherapy uses ultrasound waves to penetrate deep into the skins' layers to stimulate regeneration where previously only surgeons could reach.
ULTHERAPY TREATMENT OVERVIEW
Ultherapy is an FDA approved treatment that stimulates collagen production by delivering focussed ultrasound energy to the skin's foundational layer, previously only achieved in cosmetic surgery, without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
This is achieved by bypassing the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin, jump starting the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen.
A full consultation is required prior to this procedure.
WHAT DOES THE ULTHERAPY TREATMENT ENTAIL?
Ultrasound gel is applied to the skin and Ultrasound imaging is used to determine the optimal placement of the treatment energy.
During the treatment delivery you will typically feel a heat sensation and prickling similar to waxing. Comfort levels vary from person to person.
Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment and therefore you will not need any recovery or downtime, you can resume normal activities immediately.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH ULTHERAPY?
Ultherapy can be used effectively to lift, tone and tighten the neck, brow and improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
HOW LONG DOES THE ULTHERAPY TREATMENT TAKE?
From approx 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on the area to be treated.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM ULTHERAPY?
Most patients will see the benefits of Ultherapy from about 3 months after treatment as your body naturally regenerates collagen. This will continue to develop, gradually lifting, tightening and smoothing the skin over the following year.
HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS OF ULTHERAPY LAST?
Optimum results will be experienced at 6-8 months post treatment and often over a year.
