AN ULTHERAPY TREATMENT
After gently cleaning your skin, your clinician marks the exact areas to be treated with a non-permanent marking pencil, and applies the ultrasound gel. Using Ultherapy’s imaging technology, the clinician looks at the areas to be treated, deep within your skin, and determines the precise placement of the treatment energy at every stage through your session.
The skin tissue is heated at an optimal range of 60-70 degrees, using precise and fractional ultrasound waves 1.5mm - 4.5mm deep under the skin's surface.
The Ultrasound energy is delivered deep into your skin and soft tissue, sparing the upper layers.
Clients report a range of responses during a treatment, ranging from a slight tingling or prickling sensation to increased warmth. Your clinician will always ensure that you are comfortable and relaxed during the process.
You will see some results immediately but more importantly you will notice a gradual improvement in your skin firmness and laxity over a 3-6 month period as your skin rebuilds and remodels collagen in the dermal layers of the skin. To achieve the best results, it is highly recommended to book a yearly or second yearly treatment with our team at SkinLift to maintain your desired look.
THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE TREATMENT.
- The inflammatory response is triggered in the targeted area stimulating the body’s response in the healing process that assists with repairing and remodelling the skin tissue.
- Proliferation is the next stage which strategically synthesises new collagen resulting in the maturation and remodelling of the collagen which is a crucial stage of skin tightening and lifting in Ultherapy.
Who is Suitable for this Treatment?
Starting to notice loose skin and wrinkles that are bothering you? Join our patients and achieve exceptional results with Ultherapy to your skin naturally.
Ultherapy is backed by leading medical professionals (including cosmetic physicians, dermatologists, plastic surgeons), suitable for both men and women who desire to naturally firm target areas by minimising excess skin and wrinkles on the face, brow, jaw line and décolletage. As we lose elastin and collagen, the skin becomes loose allowing gravity to cause sagging. The composition of the muscle and tissue layers change leading to wrinkles. Ultherapy results in the maturation and remodelling of the skin cells in the dermal layer to boost collagen growth resulting in noticeably firmer skin.
Individual results will vary depending on a range of factors including:
- Skin laxity - Loose skin
- Volume - Amount and distribution of fat
- Quality - Wrinkles/ sun damage
- Age, Health and Lifestyle
Your Ultherapy session time depends on the areas being treated. Typically, a face and neck treatment could last between 60 to 90 minutes. A chest treatment (or décolletage) takes around 30-45 minutes.
What To Expect?
The wonderful benefit of SkinLift Ultherapy is that you can resume your daily activities right away. The treatment is performed below the surface of the skin, therefore you are left with no scars and the greatest part about Ultherapy is that it’s your own beauty secret!
After a SkinLift Ultherapy treatment, some individuals may experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, this is a temporary side effect which is part of the inflammation process that assists with generating new collagen. This also lets you know that the treatment is working.
We will talk you through the minor side effects of SkinLift Ultherapy and answer any questions you may have at your initial consultation.
While some people notice a difference almost immediately, most people see a marked improvement after 2 to 3 months, because it takes time for the new collagen to be significantly noticeable. This can continue for up to another six months after the treatment.
The results just keep getting better. Because it's a gradual process, the results look more natural than a facelift - and your friends won't do a double take when you walk into the room, but they will be left wondering what you are doing to look years younger. They'll see your skin looking fresher and firmer as the weeks and months go by.
