Ultherapy® is a non-invasive procedure, in fact it’s the only FDA-cleared technology for non-invasive skin lifting with practitioner visualisation. It has a strong body of clinical evidence that supports a long-lasting effect from as little as one session. Ultherapy® is indicated for lifting, tightening and sculpting of the face, neck and décolletage.
Ultherapy® is licenced for use around and below the eyes as well as FDA cleared for brow lifting, so it’s a great option for treating that delicate skin.
One of the big questions we’re constantly asked is whether Ultherapy® is effective on the cheeks. Yes, it is – and it’s licenced for skin lifting and tightening of this area.
This area is a challenge for many people – and for several reasons. Your cheeks are often seen side-on, so any sagginess can feel amplified. And as a larger area of skin, for those of us with even moderate skin laxity, we can find ourselves feeling prematurely aged with saggy cheeks. Ultherapy® is not a ‘face lift’ as you might understand to mean a clinical procedure: as we said above, it’s completely non-invasive. Instead, it disrupts your existing collagen to stimulate your body’s own production process to generate more, so the ‘lift’ effect comes from the skin-tightening as a result of the collagen and elastin boost. It all comes from you, so it’s no surprise that in one study, 95% of patients report being satisfied one year after treatment.
And does confidence feel good? Yes, Ultherapy® is FDA cleared and CE-marked for the lower face, the neck and into the décolletage. In fact, Ultherapy® has a specific clinical indication for lifting skin on the neck.
With Ultherapy®, you can achieve lifting and tightening results customised to your individual needs through a single treatment and with minimal downtime.
Absolutely. Ultherapy® is FDA cleared for use on the lower face and neck; and the chin is, of course, part of this area. But do please be aware that people have different needs when it comes to the chin. Ultherapy® is an excellent solution for tightening and sculpting the skin around and beneath the chin, so if you’re worried about sagging or a double chin, Ultherapy® could be the answer.
Yes, Ultherapy® is licensed for use on the whole face in the UK, including the upper face and the lower face (cheeks, chin, neck and décolletage).
Ultherapy® doesn’t give you results directly comparable to a facelift. It is non-invasive and does not stretch the skin like some invasive procedures do. Instead, an Ultherapy® treatment stimulates your body’s natural collagen and elastin production – the proteins which give your skin ‘body’ and (not surprisingly) elasticity.
And because Ultherapy® uses micro-focused ultrasound with real-time visualisation, your practitioner will be able to target the treatment in exactly the right areas of the face. Ultherapy® can provide visible and gradual improvement in lifting and tightening of the skin without the surgeon’s knife, and is therefore an excellent solution for people looking for visible improvements without surgical intervention.
Yes. That’s exactly what Ultherapy® does. The effect will depend on your skin laxity, your skincare regime, and the amount of collagen in your dermis; but the lifting and tightening effect is all down to neocollagenesis, or in less scientific terms, encouraging your skin to produce more of the collagen that, along with elastin, keeps it taut.
Severity of skin laxity is a consideration for how effective Ultherapy® can be expected to be, but your clinician will be able to advise on whether Ultherapy® could be a suitable treatment for you.
Also, because Ultherapy® has ultrasound visualisation that allows your provider to see under the skin’s surface and accurately stimulate areas that need a collagen boost the most, you can work on exactly the contours that matter most – leaving you looking fresh with firm, natural-looking skin.
