What is Ultherapy?
At Cosmetic Medical Clinic, we are pleased to have been the first clinic since 2009 to be registered to offer the Ultherapy non-invasive and non-surgical facelift procedure in Sydney and Australia wide.
The Ultherapy procedure uses the medical ultrasound technology to counteract and correct the effects of time and gravity on the skin. It helps to give a firmer and more youthful appearance after just one treatment with no downtime. Furthermore, this procedure allows a reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles, lifting of the brow line to reduce the droopiness around the eyes, lifting of sagging skin on the cheeks, improvement in the folds of the nose-to-mouth and mouth-to-jaw regions, a more defined jawline and neck lift, smoothing of crows feet and a more open look in the eye region, and finally improvement in skin texture and tone.
About the Procedure
Time inevitably takes its toll on your skin—not only in the form of wrinkles and uneven colour, but in overall laxity on the face and neck. Ultherapy non-surgical facelift can help turn back the signs of ageing by non-invasively lifting, tightening and smoothing skin on the face, neck and chest over time.
Ultherapy costs significantly less than other surgical facelift procedures. At Cosmetic Medical Clinic, we offer some of the most competitive non-surgical facelift prices Sydney wide.
What is Ultherapy?
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.
How does the procedure work?
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.
What can I expect after the treatment?
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 the procedure, any redness should disappear in a matter of hours.
What does the procedure feel like?
Comfort levels vary from person to person, but it is unlikely you will need pain medication during your Ultherapy procedure. 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.
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.
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 procedure; please contact our Sydney clinic for more information.
