The Beauty of Sound - Sarah Parish on Ultherapy treatment
Dr Tracy Mountford on Ultherapy®
The Cosmetic Skin Clinic is the No 1 Ultherapy Ultra Premier Treatment Provider for the UK and Ireland.
Ultherapy® is the leading ultrasound non-surgical lifting procedure for tighter, better fitting skin – in less than an hour and without any downtime.
Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive treatment for lifting and tightening the skin on the face, neck, chin and brow and, more recently, for the improvement of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. It uses a tried-and-tested ultrasound technology to gradually strengthen your skin from deep within.
Ultherapy is a non-surgical skin lifting and tightening procedure for the face, neck and eyes. It uses focused ultrasound to the same depth of skin targeted by surgeons during surgery, to generate a thermal effect under the skin. This stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin which can reverse the signs of ageing. It is non-invasive and there is minimal downtime.
This effect essentially jumpstarts a repair process; it strengthens existing collagen and produces fresh, new collagen, putting structure back into your skin.
Collagen is a natural protein that keeps skin firmed, toned and therefore youthful. As you get older, collagen loses strength and its ability to stand up to the effects of gravity that pull the skin downward.
Ultherapy is unique as it is the only non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses focused ultrasound imaging to stimulate the growth of new collagen deep within the skin. Results can be more effective because your practitioner can see the layers of tissue targeted during your treatment and ensure the energy is focused to precisely where it is needed. This results in the jawline looking sculpted and the cheekbones looking lifted.
We will explain everything in detail, and make you feel at ease and relaxed on the day of your treatment knowing you’re in safe, expert and medically qualified hands.
The procedure takes approximately 60-90 minutes depending on how many areas are treated (for example, the chest takes around 30 minutes). There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so afterwards, and a small percentage of patients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch. This effect is mild and only temporary.
Thresholds vary from person to person. Discomfort may only happen when the ultrasound energy is delivered, but this is a temporary sensation and a positive sign that the collagen-building process has been initiated. A recent upgrade, Ultherapy Amplify, has been introduced which has been found to be more comfortable.
