As we age, the skin starts to lose its elasticity, and begins to droop and sag. This is caused by the fat pads moving out of place, and the skin’s structure being compromised. In order to lift and tighten the skin, collagen production has to be stimulated.
As the body stops producing new collagen at around 30 years old, scientists have developed new treatment and devices that help to trick the body into producing more of it, plumping up the skin and improving the skin’s structure overall.
The longevity of a treatment such as Ultherapy does entirely depend on you, the patient. We are stimulating collagen and using your body’s natural healing mechanism to drive the result. Some patients notice results immediately, but optimum results can be seen at approximately 3 months after treatment.Book consultation
Ultherapy is the first FDA-cleared, non-invasive, ultrasound technology skin tightening procedure, achieved with the use of micro-focused ultrasound. It works by gently bypassing the epidermis and heating the underlying tissue, the device triggers the body’s natural production of collagen, without damaging the top layer of skin, encouraging regeneration.
It is a non-surgical skin tightening procedure which is better suited to those who are considering possible surgery in the future, but are not yet ready (either financially or mentally) to undergo an invasive, life-changing procedure.
