The Non-invasive Lift
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow. Now also FDA-cleared to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage, Ultherapy can help you achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your brow to your chest! A 60-90 minute in-office procedure at Beauty Grace. You may notice a short-term improvement but the natural course of generating new, more elastic collagen forms over time—much like the result that exercise has on building muscle (but minus the numerous workouts!). Results from Ultherapy are long lasting and will develop over the course of 2 to 3 months with continued improvement for up to 6 month, including lifting and tightening of the skin on your face. Using ultrasound technology, Ulthera works from the inside-out to lift and tighten skin non-invasively. Your body’s reaction to Ultherapy is to repair tired skin by stimulating the growth of additional, new collagen. The result is a tightening and steady lifting, or shifting of your skin back into a more youthful condition and form-appropriate shape.
Ultherapy uses safe, time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally—without surgery or downtime. During Ultherapy small waves of focused ultrasound energy penetrate the same skin layer usually addressed in a surgical facelift. Ultherapy can help switch back the marks of aging by non-invasively lifting and tightening skin.
- Ultherapy is a newest type of non-surgical, non-invasive method that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tighten and tone wobbly skin on your face.
- Ultherapy is the only FDA approved procedure to lift skin on these difficult to treat areas.
- Ultherapy uses the harmless, familiar energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep essential support layersof the skin—including those usually addressed in a surgical facelift—without distressing the surface of the skin.
Safe Ultrasound. No Surgery.
Ultherapy harnesses the power of ultrasound to transform the brow, chin, neck and chest. Ultrasound, of course, has been used safely throughout the medical field for more than 50 years—and Ultherapy has been established as safe and effective in clinical studies and in over half a million treatments worldwide. Ultherapy relies on ultrasound therapy to deliver its collagen-boosting treatment. It also incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring the treatment energy is delivered to where it will be most beneficial.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy Non-surgical Facelift Treatment – Time inevitably takes its toll on your skin—not only in the form of wrinkles and uneven color, but in overall laxity on the face and neck. Our Ultherapy treatment in Sydney can help turn back the signs of aging by non-invasively lifting, tightening and smoothing skin on the face, neck and chest over time.
Ultherapy, is a breakthrough, non-invasive, non surgical facelift procedure that uses medical ultrasound to assist in counteracting the effects of time and gravity on your skin. Ultherapy works deep below the surface to stimulate the growth of collagen “without harming the outer layer of skin”. This results in long-lasting firming, tightening and lifting of the skin, giving you a more youthful appearance after just one treatment. Ultherapy costs significantly less than other surgical facelift procedures and at the Cosmetic Medical Clinic, we offer some of the most competitive non surgical facelift prices Sydney wide. Benefits of getting the Ultherapy procedure include:
- Reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles
- Lifting of the brow line to reduce droopiness around the eyes
- Smoothing of crow’s feet and a more open look in the eye region
- Lifting of sagging skin on the cheeks
- Improvement in the folds of the nose-to-mouth and mouth-to-jaw regions
- More defined jaw line and neck lift
- General improvement in skin texture and tone
- Usually only one treatment is required
- No downtime
How does the procedure work and how long does an Ultherapy treatment take?
As with other ultrasound procedures, a smooth hand piece is placed on your skin and an image of the tissue beneath is projected on a screen. This allows your practitioner to “see” where they will treat your skin. The same hand piece is then used to deliver tiny deposits of focused ultrasound energy at just the right depth below the skin. For facial procedures, this is the same foundational layer typically addressed in a surgical facelift. Your skin’s response to this energy is to recondition tired skin by stimulating the growth of fresh, new collagen. The result is a tightening and gradual lifting—or shifting—of the skin back into a more youthful position and form-fitting shape. The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
What does the procedure feel like and will I need to take time off?
Comfort levels vary from person to person, but it is unlikely you will need pain medication during your Ultherapy treatment. Many patients describe the sensation as a momentary pricking of heat beneath the skin. This is the ultrasound energy being delivered into the tissue, which is how the procedure lifts and tightens the skin. With Ultherapy, there is no downtime. After your procedure, you can resume your normal activities immediately without having to follow any special post-treatment measures.
Are there any measures I can take to prepare my skin prior to treatment?
No significant preparations are required prior to the treatment. Some medications may make you more likely to bruise. During your consultation, talk to your practitioner about your current medications and supplements. Your practitioner may recommend that you temporarily discontinue use of some medications or supplements prior to the treatment.
What can I expect after the treatment and are there any side effects?
After your procedure you are able to return to your normal activities right away. Although your skin may appear a bit flushed or puffy immediately after treatment, any redness should disappear in a matter of hours. Safety of Ultrasound technology, Ultrasound technology has been used in the field of medicine for over 50 years and is a widely used diagnostic tool. Ultrasound uses sound waves and does not produce ionising radiation. The skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are temporary in nature. Other, less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin. As with any medical procedure, there is the possibility for other rare effects, which your practitioner will review with you.
Most patients need one treatment. However, based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and the individual’s collagen-building process, some patients benefit from additional treatments. Because skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help patients keep pace with the body’s natural aging process. How long do they last? The neocollagenesis process takes place over 2-3 months, so your results will develop over that time. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but your natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside.
How does Ultherapy differ from laser treatments?
Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production in the skin’s foundation, resulting in a clinically significant lift of tissue over 2-3 months. Lasers rely on light energy, which typically only treat superficial skin and are not FDA-cleared to lift skin. Lasers also work through the surface of the skin, often resulting in downtime after a procedure. Ultherapy’s ultrasound energy bypasses the surface of the skin, which means no downtime is required after the treatment. Since the two technologies often treat different types of skin issues, they can be compatible.
Results from Ultherapy
With just one treatment, the regenerative process is initiated and the full results will unfold over the course of 2-3 months. Some of our Sydney patients have reported continued improvement for up to 6 months. In the FDA clinical trail, nine out of ten patients had a noticeable, significant lift of the brow line. This resulted in a more open look to the eyes and a more youthful appearance overall. Patients also reported firmer, tighter, ‘better-fitting’ skin in other areas of the face and neck as well. While ultrasound does not duplicate the results of surgery, the Ultherapy procedure has proven to be an inviting alternative for many of our Sydney clients who are not yet ready for surgery. Ultherapy prices will vary depending on the procedures, full face starts from $2,850. Actual pricing will be determined upon detailed consultation.
When you consider that Sagging Skin is one of the main contributors to looking older as we age, it come as no surprise to know that the phrase Skin Tightening is the most searched cosmetic topic on the internet. Unfortunately, every single person will experience some degree of sagging skin as they age. The reason for this is that the collagen structures and elastin in the dermis (Inner) layer of the skin begin to shrink and break down, therefore providing less support for the epidermis (outer) layer of skin to hold onto. The epidermis layer of skin also begins to thin, and your skins fat stores and underlying muscle begin to deplete. This combination causes the epidermis to dry out, succumb to the effects of gravity and begin to sag and form lines and wrinkles. The rate at which this happens is affected by many things such as genetics, health and age. Below are a few factors that cause sagging skin:
Weight Loss: Obese individuals who have lost a massive amount of weight often have problems with excess skin. Typically this occurs as a result of extreme dieting. In the instance of weight loss, the best way to prevent sagging skin is to monitor your weight reduction-making sure to pace yourself. The excess fat in the body stretches the skin. Depending upon your age, you may find that the flesh does not “snap back” with the same elasticity, as it would have when you were younger. Thus, a gradual approach is the best way to get your skin to adjust to your weight changes.
The Sun: You may think that only women of a certain age have to fight gravity’s effect on the skin. But many women who enjoy soaking up the sun’s rays often discover one problem or another later in life. Putting aside all the risks of skin cancer, the sun has other ways of damaging the skin. Though you may emerge from beach sands with a chic, toasty complexion-the sun’s drying effects eventually wreak havoc on skin’s natural elasticity. So, if you’re going to play about outside during the spring and summer months, sunscreen and extra moisturising are imperative for fighting the effects of gravity
Smoking: Smoking curbs your skin’s production of collagen and elastin, these proteins are a key part of the skin’s structure. The downturn in these proteins paves the way for sagging skin and the formation of lines and wrinkles. Even second hand smoke can effect you greatly.
Prevention, the best way to prevent the premature sagging of your skin is to look at habitual factors such as diet, sun protection and whether or not you smoke. These simple things in your day to day life that can exacerbate your ageing and saggy skin. Most of the effects of skin damage only show years after it has occurred, though it is never too late to start specifically taking care of your skin properly.
The treatment for Sagging Skin will depend on many factors such as medical history, age, life style factors and many more. The best way to find out what would be the best treatment for you is to organise a free consultation where we can explain to you what is the main cause of your concern and how best to address it.
Price for Ultherapy starts from $2800. Actual pricing will be determined upon detailed consultation with our doctor. This procedure treatment only perform by our doctor.
