What is ULTHERAPY®
The Ultherapy treatment is a non-invasive procedure to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow, and improve lines and wrinkles on the decollete. Ultherapy can help you achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your brow to you.
- No downtime
- Builds collagen
- Single treatment
- Ultrasound therapy
Building collagen: The Ultherapy® procedure stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the skin’s foundational layer typically addressed in cosmetic surgery—without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
Unlike other HIFU devices, Ulthera's unique use of live ultrasound imaging allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment to ensure the energy is deposited to where it will be most beneficial.
No downtime: Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment, but the real results appear over 2−3 months as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin and brow as well as smooth skin on the chest. While Ultherapy won’t duplicate the results of a facelift, it’s a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery—and can even be an option for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
Non-invasive: Unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery and other technologies, non-surgical Ultherapy bypasses 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.
Single treatment: Just one non-invasive Ultherapy® treatment helps counteract the effects of time, gravity and sun exposure without downtime. However, due to differences in the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and the individual's collagen-building process, the frequency of maintenance treatments will vary between patients. Because skin continues to age, future Ultherapy® treatments can help patients keep pace with the body's natural aging process. It really is up to each patient and the clinician, although intervals of 12 to 18 months have been suggested.
How much does an Ultherapy® procedure cost?
The cost of an Ultherapy® treatment depends upon the face/neck area being treated and factors such as major areas of concerns and individual physician practices. Since the treatment is so personalised, to get the most accurate price quote, it is best to have an obligation-free face-to-face consultation with us free of charge.
