What is Ultherapy and What are the Benefits?
We’re excited to let you know that we have introduced a fabulous NEW Treatment at the Clinic – Ultherapy!
What is Ultherapy?
It’s a Non-Surgical Treatment that tightens and lifts loose, sagging skin on the:
- UNDER THE EYES
- LOWER FACE
- UNDER THE CHIN
- AS WELL AS TREATING WRINKLES ON THE DÉCOLLETAGE
– using ultrasound technology – the same ultrasound technology that’s been used in investigative ultrasound examinations in medicine for over 50 years but now in a modified format to treat the signs of ageing on the face, neck and chest.
- NO PAIN
- NO DOWNTIME
- ONE TREATMENT ONLY
- NO FOREIGN SUBSTANCES
Ultherapy treatment is a non-invasive treatment. This means skin laxity can now be addressed in a non-surgical way!
Using the body’s own regenerative responses, Ultherapy gently and naturally stimulates natural collagen growth without any disruption of the skin’s surface! The ultrasound waves reach and treat the deep support layers of the skin – the same tissues that are targeted in a surgical facelift.
Ultherapy has been approved by the FDA in the USA and by the TGA in Australia based on the results of many scientific and clinical studies. Over one million patients worldwide have already been treated confirming its effectiveness and safety. So, it’s an exciting addition to our services for our patients.
How Ultherapy Works
Ultherapy works from the inside-out to lift and tighten the skin without any downtime. It does this by sending ultrasound waves through the skin and down to the foundation layer that is typically tightened in a surgical facelift. The focussing of the ultrasound waves at the target depth then stimulates the production of fresh, new collagen over the ensuing months which in turn lifts, tightens firms the skin. The results start to show 2-3 months after the treatment and continue for up to 6 months as the collagen replacement process continues. As the results are gradual and the surface of the skin is left undisturbed, there is no sudden change that requires explanation to workmates, friends or family, thus making it the ideal lunch-time treatment.
Our doctor will assess you at your Consultation and advise as to which areas will experience the best results.
Who is Likely to Benefit from Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is best suited to those with mild to moderate sagging of the skin on the face and neck, or those with wrinkles on the décolletage.
It’s also a great way to maintain a youthful appearance and counter the natural ageing process by increasing collagen and elastin levels deep below the skin’s surface.
Bear in mind, however, that Ultherapy is not designed to take the place of traditional facelift surgery. In other words, people with advanced facial ageing would still be advised to consider traditional facelift surgery.
Ultherapy can be used as a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with our other procedures for even better results.
IMPORTANT- SAFETY WARNING:
As Ultherapy is such an effective treatment, many cheap ‘copycat’ machines have been produced overseas and brought into Australia.
ULTHERA® BY MERZ IS THE ONLY GENUINE ULTHERAPY MACHINE. Treatments with cheaper, and even fake, copycat machines are regularly advertised and promoted so always insist that you are to receive treatment with a genuine Ulthera® machine.
