Top 5 FAQs for Non Surgical Facelift (Ultherapy)

What is Ultherapy?
Open Close

Ultherapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that uses focused ultrasound energy from a device to cause very precise and specific deep tissue heating without disturbing the surface of the skin. As a result of this heating the tissues undergo 'remodelling' which leads to new collagen formation, shrinkage and firming, with tightening of the skin and deeper muscle layers.

How does it work?
Open Close

Ultherapy uses ultrasound imaging so when the practitioner places the handset on the area that is to be treated, they can see the tissue on screen and target focused ultrasound beams at the right depth below the skin. This targeting and rapid heating of the tissues prompts cell renewal beneath the skin and prompts the body to respond by producing more elastin and collagen, restoring the skin's underlying tissue and rejuvenating and tightening the skin. Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared procedure to 'lift' skin on hard-to-treat areas using ultrasound. Treatment takes between 60-90 minutes.

What areas of the body can Ultherapy treat?
Open Close

All the studies and initial trials that have been completed for the Ultherapy treatment have been on the face and neck regions, with noticeable results on the brow, cheek, jowl areas in particular. Ulthera was cleared for use on the chest quite recently and according to the manufacturer there is no reason why other parts of the body such as the arms, abdominal or skin above the knee, might not benefit from the Ultherapy treatment. It's just that not enough formal studies have been done yet to prove its effectiveness in such areas.

Is Ultherapy painful?
Open Close

Comfort thresholds will vary from patient to patient but you should expect mild to moderate pain during treatment when the ultrasound energy is being delivered. We often try to minimise this by administering combination pain killers 45 minutes prior to the procedure to provide pain relief. At our London clinic, which is based with The Hospital of St John & St Elizabeth, we are able to use some additional pain relief in the form of Entonox (commonly known as gas and air) to help you past any strong levels of discomfort. Once the treatment is completed however there is no pain and patients typically leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come!

Am I suitable for Ultherapy?
Open Close

Ultherapy is beneficial for rejuvenating tired-looking or sagging skin, a lowered brow line and other signs of maturing skin. The ideal candidate for Ultherapy is typically someone who has some mild to moderate degree of skin laxity that wants to improve his or her skin firmness and volume and perhaps is not fully ready for a surgical skin tightening procedure such as a face lift. Typically, those in their thirties and early forties who have a good quality of skin are the best candidates. Patients who have more advanced levels of skin laxity (sagging) are sometimes advised to consider a face lift procedure to ensure a better result. Nonetheless patients with more advanced and obvious laxity of the skin-but who have already ruled out an invasive surgical face lift, for any number of reasons, may also benefit from the Ultherapy procedure, however these patients will need to understand that Ultherapy in these circumstances can never mimic or achieve the results obtained with a surgical face lift and therefore have to be prepared to curtail their expectations.

    "For body treatments - If your lower body is being treated consider wearing trousers or a skirt as you can then remove this whilst you are being treated. It avoids you being uncomfortable in treatment and your clothes getting 'crumpled'."

For my first Velashape III treatment, Maxine made me feel really comfortable and explained exactly how the treatment would go and any after-effects I might have (I have had none). The process was smooth and painless and actually kind of relaxing. Most importantly, I can already see a MAJOR difference on the cellulite on my legs and butt. I am seriously impressed!

I have my Botox with Karolina. She is exceptionally knowledgeable and advises me on what would look good and not so good on my face. She is a person I can trust!

Karolina is always a joy to work with - kind, considerate and very professional and creating an aura of trust. She makes the Ulthera treatment painless and that's not an easy task!
