Ultherapy

Ultherapy is a non-surgical face treatment that uses ultrasound to actually lift and tone loose or sagging skin without any downtime. Since Ultherapy can have a skin tightening effect, it is one of the more popular procedures for skin tightening in Australia. Even though this procedure is non-surgical in nature, it can still influence the skin’s surface in minimal time, enabling the patient to achieve a more youthful look through an increase in collagen production.

Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy?

Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy?

A good candidate for an Ultherapy procedure is someone with skin that has “relaxed” to the point of looking and often feeling, less firm. A lowered eyebrow 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 a surgical facelift, many people want some lifting but are not ready for surgery, either mentally, financially or logistically. Some younger people want to “stay ahead of the game” as well as those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery. These photos have been supplied from Ulthera. All photographs represent one person’s experience and this may vary for each patient. All photographs represent one person’s experience, and results may vary for each patient. All photographs are of actual patients of the Institute of Aesthetics. The visible change in these photographs has occurred as a result of the procedure/s undertaken. Best results are obtained when the procedure is combined with a balanced diet and exercise.

Will I need more than one treatment?

Will I need more than one 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-building process). Even though results can be obtained from this treatment with only one session, certain patients could benefit from multiple sessions. To determine the number of treatments for a patient, or to determine if ultherapy is right for you, it is best to see a licensed dermatologist or cosmetic surgery before choosing the treatment.

    Not everyone is familiar with ultherapy, especially considering that this type of treatment has only
    become available recently. However, ultherapy can be a viable treatment option for numerous
    patients, so doing some research into this type of treatment could help patients decide if the
    treatment is right for them. Prospective patients can find more information about this therapy on
    this page, but other information pages on facelift procedures are available on the Institute of Aesthetics website
    too. Additionally, patients can also request more information about this treatment directly via
    telephone, email, website form or chat message.

    What is Ultherapy?

    Ultherapy procedure is a non-surgical, non-invasive rejuvenation procedure for the face, neck, and
    chest, which uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift skin, tone, and
    tighten loose skin. The Ulthera device uses radiofrequency ultrasound to stimulate the deep
    structural support layers of the skin, including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift such as
    the dermis and SMAS layer, without disturbing the surface of the skin. Ultherapy treatment also stimulates the creation of new collagen, which further helps the skin maintain its youthfulness. This
    type of therapy can be added to a regular skincare routine or as one of our standalone skin
    tightening treatments.

    The beauty of Ultherapy is that it is a 30 to 60-minute procedure that uses the body’s own subtle
    healing response to gently, gradually restore memory to the skin and its underlying tissue. In other
    words, it is a non-invasive treatment or non-surgical facelift that can prevent some signs of the
    ageing process without the need for making incisions. Ultherapy or ultrasound waves require no
    special recuperation or preparation and typically only takes one treatment to get a meaningful
    response. Patients enjoy some initial effect immediately following the procedure, but the ultimate
    lifting will take place over 2-3 months, as tired collagen is rejuvenated and supplemented with new,
    stronger collagen.

    While ultrasound does not duplicate the results of surgery, Ultherapy has proven to be an inviting alternative for those who are not yet ready for surgery. Ultherapy offers a no-downtime approach to improving lax skin in a meaningful way.

    Factors to Consider Before Getting Ultherapy

    Areas

    Areas

    Patients commonly choose to have the cheeks and lower face treated in order to obtain the lifting of the whole area. The neck, decolletage, and forehead can also be treated. Ultherapy can be combined with many other procedures such as fillers and muscle relaxants. Our surgeons recommend Ultherapy after a face skin suture lift to enhance results and longevity.

    Contraindications

    Contraindications

    Ultherapy should not be used over a filler and therefore there must be good timing with other treatments. There may be some pain and tenderness during treatment. The Ultherapy should also not be used over any facial implants.

    Risks

    Risks

    As the treatment is non-surgical no promises can be made as to the extent of lift or final result. This is because all patients react differently to such therapies. Burning or scarring has not been seen however some patients do find the treatment tender and even painful.

    Discover Ultherapy Advantages!

    An increasingly large amount of patients now opt for Ultherapy procedures. Ultherapy jump starts a repair process that produces fresh, new collagen.

    Frequently Asked Questions for Ultherapy

    You may see some results soon after treatment however the maximum results will be seen approximately 2-3 months following your treatment.

    They both send a beam through the skin layers to stimulate collagen for anti-aging. The ultherapy is a more direct and focused treatment.

    It is a non-surgical facelift treatment. Skin can be lifted and tightened using a focused energy ultrasound. It is not a guaranteed result like a surgical facelift and there is no downtime.

    Results can be quite impressive however they are not guaranteed or as predictable and dramatic as a surgical facelift.

    Ultherapy uses tried-and-true ultrasound technology, which has received FDA clearance for use in this new type of medical procedure.

    Ultherapy deposits focused ultrasound energy below the surface of the skin to stimulate the body’s creation of new collagen. As a result, the skin will actually begin to lift and tone over time.

    Collagen is a natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firmed, toned and elastic. As we age, collagen loses its elasticity and its ability to stand up to the effects of gravity that pull the skin downward.

    No. Unlike a facelift, Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure that addresses the skin and support layers below it but doesn’t entail cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.

    Ultherapy is an “uplift”, not a “facelift.” While it is not a replacement for surgery, it is a viable option for those not ready for a facelift or those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.

    Lasers typically address issues in the superficial layers of the skin (e.g. fine lines, wrinkles, pigment changes). Ultherapy addresses the deep skin layer and the foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery that lifts and lends support to the skin. Therefore, the two technologies are quite complementary!

    The procedure has been demonstrated safety in clinical studies, and tens of thousands of treatments have been performed safely worldwide. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years.

    A full-face treatment takes 45-60 minutes, and a partial face or brow lift treatment can take around 30 minutes—neither with any downtime.

    Ultherapy is an entirely non-invasive procedure and as such, there is no downtime. You are able to return to your normal activities right away, and there are no special measures you need to take.

    Ultherapy addresses mild to moderate loose or sagging skin. 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.

    Patients may enjoy some initial effect but the ultimate lifting and toning will take place over 2-3 months, as tired collagen is replaced with new, more elastic collagen. As this collagen-building process continues, further improvements can appear up to 6 months following a procedure.

    Patients treated with Ultherapy still have fresh young collagen after a year following the procedure, but skin continues to age. Future touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the aging process, which varies by individual.
