Tighten Your Skin With A Non-Surgical FaceLift - Ultherapy in our Melbourne EST Clinic

Ultherapy is a revolutionary, non-surgical treatment that harnesses the power of high-intensity focused ultrasound energy to lift and tighten sagging skin.

Experience the transformative results of this state-of-the-art procedure. Read on to learn how Ultherapy can help improve your skin health.

What is Ultherapy?

A gold standard non-surgical lifting and tightening procedure that non-invasively stimulates collagen production, resulting in skin tightening and lifting for the face, neck and body.

This visualisation is unique to Ultherapy and ensures energy is delivered where it will be most beneficial. Real-time imaging allows clinicians to control exactly where energy will be deposited, and to avoid structures such as bone and blood vessels. This enables precise and consistent treatment delivery to targeted tissue layers to ensure optimal treatments.

Real-time imaging allows clinicians to control exactly where energy will be deposited, and to avoid structures such as bone and blood vessels. This enables precise and consistent treatment delivery to targeted tissue layers to ensure optimal treatments.

How does it work?

Ultherapy deposits focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. The treatment jumpstarts a process, neocollagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen to help the effects of time and gravity on your skin. Ultherapy relies on your body’s own collagen-building process for natural, noticeable results.

Unlike lasers and radio-frequency which penetrate the skin from the outside-in, Ultherapy works from the inside-out, to lift and tighten skin non-invasively. Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin, delivering focused ultrasound energy at depths of up to 4.5mm, which is the same foundational layer typically addressed in a surgical facelift.

What areas can be treated with Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is an innovative, non-surgical treatment designed to rejuvenate areas of the body affected by loose skin and moderate skin laxity. Key treatment areas include:

  • Face - reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles
  • Neck - addresses sagging skin and refines the jawline
  • Chin - helps to redefine your chin and lift sagging skin
  • Decolletage - smoothes wrinkles and tightens skin

What are the benefits of Ultherapy?

As a non-invasive alternative to cosmetic surgery, Ultherapy offers multiple benefits through its unique use of high-intensity focused ultrasound energy:

  • Reduces lines and wrinkles - gives the skin a smoother appearance
  • Improves skin laxity - tightens and lifts the skin, counteracting the skin's natural ageing process
  • Stimulates collagen production - encourages new collagen formation beneath the skin's surface
  • Evens skin tone - treatment can result in a more even skin tone, enhancing overall skin health

Am I a good candidate for treatment?

A good candidate for Ultherapy is typically someone who has begun to notice signs of skin laxity or sagging skin. This can include lowered eyebrow lines, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin, or lines and wrinkles on the chest.

It's a viable option for those seeking a non-invasive, non-surgical approach to counteract the effects of time and gravity on the skin.

How is Ultherapy in Melbourne carried out at EST Clinic?

If you choose to have your Ultherapy treatment in Melbourne with us at EST Clinic, this is what you can expect:

Consultation

At your initial consultation, a Specialist Plastic Surgeon or an experienced Cosmetic Nurse will assess your facial features and spend time understanding your concerns. They will answer any questions and discuss any concerns you may have to ensure you have all the information you need before proceeding with any treatments.

Procedure

During the procedure, focused ultrasound energy is directed beneath the skin's surface. This energy stimulates the body's natural response to produce fresh collagen, contributing to a lift and a tightening of the skin over time.

Possible risks and side effects

While Ultherapy is generally considered low-risk, it's important to understand that every procedure carries some inherent risks. Although rare, it's essential to be aware of potential risks, including:

  • Burning: In extremely rare cases, a sensation of heat or burning may be experienced during the treatment. This sensation typically subsides quickly and does not cause any lasting harm.
  • Bruising: Bruising may occur at the treatment site, particularly in individuals with sensitive or easily bruised skin. This is typically a temporary side effect and resolves on its own within a few days or weeks.
  • Numbness and Tingling: Some patients may experience temporary numbness or tingling sensations in the treated area. This is usually transient and resolves spontaneously over time as the body adjusts.
  • Swelling: Mild swelling can occur after an Ultherapy session, especially in the facial region. This is a natural response to the treatment and typically resolves within a few days.
  • Muscle Weakness: In rare cases, temporary muscle weakness or fatigue may occur in the treated area. This usually resolves on its own within a short period and does not cause any long-term issues.

Patients should note that individual experiences may vary. Each individual will heal differently, have different pain thresholds and will therefore experience different recovery times for different treatments.

It is recommended that patients should consult and seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner before proceeding with any treatments.

Results and Recovery

Ultherapy works by repairing and strengthening tissue from the inside out – a process that takes place gradually over time with the creation of new collagen. While individual responses will vary, the following experiences have been reported by patients.

One week after treatment:

  • Minor swelling
  • Slight tenderness to the touch
  • Tingling
  • Occasional minor bruising

Three months after treatment:

  • Improvement in the appearance of lines and wrinkles
  • Smoother texture
  • More even skin tone

Six months after treatment:

  • Continued improvement in the appearance of lines and wrinkles
  • Smoother texture
  • More even skin tone
  • Periodic touch-up treatments may help to offset the skin’s natural ageing process, as well as continued side-sleeping and sun exposure.

FAQs

If you have any more questions about Ultherapy treatment in Melbourne or any of our services, please don’t hesitate to contact us today. In the meantime, you can find our FAQs below that may provide the additional information you’re looking for.

What is the best time to have Ultherapy?

The best time for Ultherapy is as soon as signs of skin laxity or sagging skin begin to appear. Additionally, optimal skin health can be achieved by avoiding excessive sun exposure, which can accelerate the skin's ageing process.
How often will I need Ultherapy?

The frequency of Ultherapy treatments varies depending on individual skin conditions and ageing progression. Typically, many individuals find that only one treatment is needed to achieve desired results, followed by occasional maintenance treatments.
How many Ultherapy treatments are needed?

The number of treatments needed varies from person to person. Some individuals achieve their desired results with only one treatment, while others may require additional sessions to tackle more advanced signs of ageing. At your initial consultation, we will be able to provide a more accurate answer for your individual circumstances.
What is the difference between Ultherapy and a facelift?

A facelift is a surgical procedure. Ultherapy, on the other hand, is a TGA-registered non-invasive procedure to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the brow. Specifically, it

  • Lifts and tightens the skin non-invasively
  • Stimulates the production of new collagen
  • Reveals noticeable results with no downtime

While Ultherapy does not duplicate the effects of cosmetic surgery, it is an alternative for patients not ready for surgery or for those who want to continue building new collagen after a surgical lift.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
