What is ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a facial treatment, which is also known as a non-surgical facelift. This treatment is designed to tighten and lift the skin to reduce the visibility of lines and wrinkles, add volume to sagging skin and generally produce a much more youthful aesthetic.

Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to stimulate the production of collagen, the fibre, which gives the skin firmness and elasticity. It is currently the only procedure if this kind to be approved by the US Food and Drug Administration.

In most cases, only a single treatment session is required to produce the desired results and the procedure takes around 60-90 minutes; as the skin continues to age, it may be possible to top-up treatment further down the line if required. If the skin has lost a lot of elasticity prior to treatment, more than one session may be recommended.

Ultherapy offers an alternative to cosmetic facial surgery, such as a facelift or eyebrow lift and it may present a safer and more appealing option to fillers or Botox, which only produce temporary results lasting up to 9 months (6 months for Botox).

Ultherapy can be used to treat several different areas, including around the brows, the neck, the décolletage and the entire face. The cost of treatment depends on how many areas are treated and which clinic you visit.
