Ultherapy uses the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound focusing the energy to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin, including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift, without disturbing the surface of the skin. There’s no downtime, no foreign substances, no radical change; your skin will gradually reflect a more refreshed, uplifting appearance. In less than an hour you can go about your day after a single Ulthera procedure to tighter, firmer, better-fitting skin.
We understand you are unique. That is why Ultherapy® uses ultrasound imaging to precisely see your layers of tissue, allowing your Aesthetic Therapist to customise your treatment, using just the right amount of energy at just the right depths and temperature. This ensures energy is delivered to the areas most beneficial for you.
Ultherapy is a non-surgical face and neck treatment that uses ultrasound to actually lift and tone loose skin without any downtime.
Ultherapy addresses skin that is mild to moderately loose or lax. Specifically, by reconditioning and renewing the skin from within, Ultherapy will lift the brow, which in turn reduces excess skin on the lids, opens up the eyes, and gives a more refreshed look overall.
A good candidate for Ultherapy is someone with skin that has 'relaxed' to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm. A lowered brow line or sagging skin on the eyelids, for instance, is often the first sign of maturing skin.Typically, those in their thirties and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates.
While Ultherapy is not a replacement for surgery, there are many people who want some lifting but are not ready for surgery.
With Ultherapy, there is no downtime. You are able to return to your normal activities right away. You may notice a short-term 'boost' and the natural process of creating new, more elastic collagen builds over time.
Results will unfold over the course of 2-3 months and some patients have reported continued improvement for up to 6 months. While ultrasound does not duplicate the results of surgery, Ultherapy has proven to be the preferred alternative for those who are not yet ready for surgery.

TIMEFRAME FOR RESULTS
Further improvements can appear up to 6 months following the procedure
Ultherapy® is a non-surgical treatment that uses micro-focused ultrasound with visualisation (MFU-V) to target the deep structural layers of the skin without disrupting the skin’s surface and stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin.
Treatments typically take anywhere between 30 minutes and an hour and a half, depending on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck treatment takes around an hour to 90 minutes, while a décolletage (chest) treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
There is minimal downtime with Ultherapy®, either. You may have a bit of redness, where the skin will appear flushed immediately after treatment, but that should subside within a few hours.
Some patients also experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness, but these are usually temporary, and you should be able to resume your normal lifestyle and activities immediately.
One of the reasons people love Ultherapy® is that the results are so natural. You will begin to see results from around three months post-treatment, as the growth of new collagen and elastin replaces old tissue targeted by the treatment. A single Ultherapy® treatment can give a lasting effect for over a year.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Ultherapy?
Can Ultherapy replace a facelift?
Is Ultherapy safe?
The procedure has been cleared by the FDA after demonstrating safety in clinical studies, and tens of thousands of treatments have been performed worldwide without any significant adverse events. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years.
What areas does Ultherapy target?
How long until I see the results of the Ultherapy treatment?
Patients may enjoy some initial effect but the ultimate lifting and toning will take place over 2-3 months, as tired collagen is renewed and replaced with new, stronger collagen. As this collagen-building process continues, further improvements can appear up to 6 months following a procedure.
Will I need more than one Ultherapy treatment?
The majority of patients only need one treatment; however, some may benefit from more than one treatment (depending on how much laxity they have and their body’s own biological response to the ultrasound and collagen rebuilding process).
Will I feel the Ultrasound during the treatment?
Yes. What you are feeling during the treatment is actually tiny amounts of concentrated ultrasound energy being deposited below the surface of the skin. Patients have noted there can be some discomfort while the energy is being delivered, but it is temporary and a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated.
Is Ultherapy painful?
We will be sure to consult with you prior to your treatment to make your experience as pleasant as possible. Patients typically leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come!
