What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure that utilises ultrasound technology to tone and tighten the facial, neck and decolletage areas. The focused ultrasound energy stimulates the body’s natural regenerative responses to build new collagen, gently and gradually lifting and smoothing the skin.
How does Ultherapy work?
Ultherapy is unique in the way it focuses the ultrasound energy to an optimised point beneath the skin’s surface and delivers the energy at an optimised temperature. At this focused point, the energy heats the tissue, triggering a natural regenerative response (called neocollagenesis) that produces fresh collagen in the skin. Typically a face and neck procedure will take 60-90 minutes, while a decolletage treatment will take approximately 30 minutes.
Some patients are able to see the effects of the treatment immediately. However, most results unfold over 2-3 months post-procedure as gradual tightening occurs due to new collagen development.
Ultherapy is able to treat the following areas:
