Ultherapy Skin Tightening

Lift And Tighten Skin Naturally, From The Inside Out

Do you want tighter, firmer skin without surgery or downtime? Ultherapy skin tightening is set to revolutionise the way we reach optimal skin properties. Whether you are interested in ultherapy or ultraformer, this non-surgical procedure has taken the beauty and healthcare industry by storm. Ultherapy works by targeting collagen production within underlying layers of skin which allows it to clamp down on loose, sagging skin and give you a tighter, more youthful appearance. It promotes collage through gentle targeted heat waves at a depth of up to 4.5mm without any downtime or surgery. After ultherapy treatment patients can immediately return to work and resume their daily activities – making it perhaps one of the most convenient and effective solutions for achieving firmer skin today!

Fine lines are a natural effect of repeated facial expressions, sun exposure and a decrease of the skin’s elasticity. As you advance in age, these fine lines can turn into deep creases and wrinkles. A timely treatment for fine lines can reverse and postpone facial ageing for years to come.


Facial slimming can contour your jawline and bring out a more heart-shaped face without any surgery or downtime.


A lack of collagen due to ageing, or over-stretched skin from weight-loss or childbirth can leave your skin saggy with a reduction in skin strength. Reduce and delay these effects and regain that firm, tight and sag-free skin again with our highly qualified skin experts.

Aged Skin

Overtime, underlying changes to the skin tissue result in lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. Ultherapy works to tighten and lift skin, reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Ultherapy delivers ultrasound energy non-invasively to heat skin tissue at multiple depths, triggering a natural regenerative response that stimulates the growth of new collagen.

What to expect?

While individual responses will vary, the following experiences are typical:

1 week: Slight lifting and plumping of fine lines, minor swelling, slight tenderness to the touch, tingling or numbness may occur. 1 month after treatment: Slight lifting, tighter feel to the skin, tingling or numbness may occur. 3-6 months after treatment: Additional lifting and tighter, better-fitting skin should be noticed with brow elevation, less sagging, smoother texture and more even skin tone.

Periodic touch-up treatments may help to offset the natural ageing process.

The Authentic Ultrasound Lift

Unfortunately, there are practitioners who claim to treat with Ultherapy, but actually use a counterfeit device. These counterfeit devices have not been subject to the rigorous testing and standards of the Ulthera system, and may result in less effective or unsafe outcomes. To ensure you are receiving a true Ultherapy treatment, ask to see the providers authenticity and attend a reputable clinic.

Ultherapy Skin Tightening FAQ's

Ultherapy® is a safe, non-surgical ultrasound treatment to lift and tighten the skin naturally without surgery, helping you achieve a fresher, more youthful look! The revolutionary treatment uses the body’s own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift skin on the eyebrow, under the chin and on the neck, and smooth lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.

During an Ultherapy treatment ultrasound waves are micro-focused at precise depths in the dermis and hypodermis without disrupting the skin’s surface, friction heats the tissue forming thermal coagulation points at depth of 1.5, 3 or 4.5mm. Delivery of ultrasound energy in this manner causes contraction of fibres and  generation of collagen which initiates the body in healing response resulting in collagen and elastin synthesis and tissue repair. This new collagen growth leads to skin lifting and tightening that gradually takes place over time with results seen years after treatment.

As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the heating sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered, and is an indication that the procedure is working.

The neocollagenesis process (production of new collagen) takes place over 2-3 months, or even up to 6 months post treatment, so your results will develop over that time. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but your natural ageing process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside, the result should be a tightening and lifting of lax skin as well as an increase of volume created by the stimulation of new collagen.

The two most well-known and effective treatment is the American Ulthera and the Korean Ultraforma – both deliver the same type of ultrasound energy.

The effectiveness and success of the treatment depends on 3 main factors:
  1. Number of ultrasound energy lines used.
  2. Various depth that the ultrasound energy is focused.
  3. Strength that the ultrasound energy is applied.

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 ageing process.

The safety and efficacy of Ultherapy have been established through clinical studies and over 800,000 treatments performed worldwide. Ultherapy is approved in over 90 countries and has been safely used for more than 50 years to lift the skin on the neck, under the chin, and on the brow, as well as to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolleté.

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. During the treatment, ultrasound energy will be delivered using the Ulthera® System. Depending on where you are treated, the procedure can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours.

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.

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. Some patients appear flushed, or may experience slight swelling, tingling, or tenderness to touch.  These side effects are mild and temporary in nature, and are not expected to interfere with your normal activities. As with any medical procedure, there is the possibility for other rare effects, which your practitioner will review with you during your consultation.

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.

The cost of an Ultherapy treatment ranges depending on the area being treated from $440 for lower eye area to $3,125 for full face, neck and eyelids (package pricing from $308-$2,188).

Unfortunately, there are practitioners who claim to treat with Ultherapy, but actually use a counterfeit device. These counterfeit devices have not been subject to the rigorous testing and standards of the Ulthera system, and may result in less effective or unsafe outcomes.
