Ultherapy®

“Ultherapy is the only FDA cleared technology, to lift the face in a single treatment giving swift, durable and impressive results.”

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.

What Our Patients Say

FAQ

What is Ultherapy?

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.

What can Ultherapy be used for?

Ultherapy is a non-invasive option that can treat sagging skin, jowls, skin laxity, ‘turkey neck’, drooping eyelids, sagging bottoms and the lines and wrinkles on a crepey décolletage.

How is Ultherapy different from other cosmetic procedures?

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.

How soon will I notice results?

Some patients see an initial lift after their treatment but real results can become more apparent over three to six months as new collagen builds, gradually lifting the skin and this can last over a year or more.

How long does Ultherapy last?

Patients treated with Ultherapy still have fresh young collagen even after a year. Although nothing can put a stop to the ageing process, Ultherapy touch-up treatments will keep rebuilding collagen. Every patient is different and your medical practitioner will give you all the advice you need.

What should I expect?

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.

How safe is Ultherapy?

Ultrasound imaging has been safely used in medicine for over 50 years. It’s used to see muscles and joints, and during pregnancy. Over half a million treatments worldwide have been performed so far, and the procedure is approved for safety by the FDA.

Is there any downtime?

Unlike a surgical face-lift, there is no downtime: you can return to your normal activities directly after treatment.

I’m interested in having Ultherapy but will it hurt?

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.

Can Ultherapy treat areas of the body other than the face?

Ultherapy is currently an FDA-cleared treatment for the face and neck with a specific clinical indication for lifting skin on the neck, chin and brow. If you’re concerned about other areas of the body that need tightening, please ask about our butt lift and breast lift procedures.

Can men have Ultherapy done?

Yes, of course. Many treatments at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic are ideal for both women and men, and all of our patients are treated with the utmost discretion.

Does Ultherapy work on the eyes?

Ultherapy is FDA-cleared for use on the face, neck and eyes. The ultra-sound treatment stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin deep within the skin, kick-starting the body’s own repair process, creating a lifted effect. When used on the brow, it lifts and tightens the skin and improves the appearance of drooping eyelids. It can be safely and effectively used under the eyes, as long as it is on the bone. For skin immediately under the lash line, Ultherapy is not advised. If, however, you are just looking to treat fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area, other more suitable treatments such as dermal fillers, BOTOX and Thermage Eyes are more appropriate.

Who can perform Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is only available in doctor-led clinics. The procedure can be performed by a qualified aesthetic medical practitioner, including nurses and experienced aestheticians who have extensive hands-on experience. At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, our experienced nursing team perform Ultherapy every day and achieve positive results.
