Ultherapy®

Ever wondered how Tess Daly looks so great for her age? She obviously looks after herself well, but her other secret is Ultherapy® treatments.

No needles, no toxins...
Ultherapy® is a revolutionary treatment that produces really natural-looking results by triggering your body’s own regenerative process to produce new collagen and elastin to combat skin ageing.

It is the Gold Standard Treatment for non-surgical lifting and tightening and is a favourite of celebrities like, brand ambassador, Tess Daly. It is a completely non-invasive anti-ageing treatment, working invisibly under the skin, so there’s no downtime.

Ultherapy® is the only FDA-cleared and CE mark certified non-surgical facelifting treatment that lifts, sculpts and tightens the skin on the face, neck and décolletage from the inside out. It uses micro-focused ultrasound with visualisation (MFU-V) technology, allowing your practitioner to see layers of subdermal tissue and to customise your treatment, using the right amount of energy at the right depths and temperature to precisely target your areas of concern.

Natural-Looking Results with No Downtime

Ultherapy® generates really natural-looking results so you will look like yourself, but on a really good day! The treatment works naturally within your body, delivering targeted ultrasound energy to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin without the need for surgery, needles or any invasive procedure whatsoever on your skin.

In one treatment, Ultherapy® can create a non-surgical facelifting result, lifting and tightening the skin on your face and neck, or you can choose to target specific treatment zones (see list below).

Frequently Asked Questions

Ultherapy® uses precise micro-focused ultrasound with visualisation (MFU-V) energy to target the deep structural layers of the skin, where collagen is produced, without disrupting your skin’s surface – meaning minimal downtime for you. After treatment, your body’s tissue repair process stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin, creating a gradual effect, which progresses over 2-3 months, to lift, tone and tighten your skin in the treated area.

It is the only non-surgical treatment that can reach the SMAS (Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System), the deep tissue underneath the epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous fat, reaching the foundation layer which is key to your skin’s firmness and elasticity. In the past, non-surgical skin tightening treatments were not able to reach this area and it was only possible to address the SMAS layer using invasive techniques such as surgical procedures. In this respect, Ultherapy® is quite a revolutionary treatment, being able to address anti-ageing concerns at their core without any incision or disruption to the skin’s surface.

  • It is a clinically proven, safe and effective procedure (over 1.75 million treatments have been performed worldwide)
  • There is no need for surgery, needles or any invasive procedure whatsoever on your skin
  • Little or no downtime – you can expect to get straight back to your normal daily activities
  • Ultherapy® uses precise ultrasound energy to stimulate your body’s own production of collagen and elastin
  • The treatment can be tailored precisely to your own unique anatomy
  • The Ultherapy® device allows your practitioner to see layers of sub dermal tissues on screen and direct the heat energy at the right depth and temperature to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin, where needed most, without disturbing the surface layer of your skin
  • Anticipated results are beautifully refreshed, lifted and tightened skin, restoring radiance and elasticity to the contours of your face
  • Ultherapy® works naturally within your body to generate really natural-looking results
  • For most patients, a single Ultherapy® treatment can give a lasting result for over a year
  • As it takes time for your body to produce new collagen and elastin, results will progress gradually for a few months following treatment, so results will continue to improve over time, with optimum results being achieved after 6 months
  • You can choose whether to go for full facial rejuvenation approach or to target specific, smaller treatment areas, depending on your needs and budget
  • Ultherapy® is the only micro-focused ultrasound with visualisation (MFU-V) technology that has been FDA cleared in the US and CE mark certified throughout Europe for non-surgical facelifting of the skin on the upper and lower face, neck and décolletage

Ultherapy® is the Gold Standard treatment for non-surgical lifting and tightening and is a favourite of celebrities like, brand ambassador, Tess Daly. It is a completely non-invasive anti-ageing treatment, working invisibly under the skin so there’s no downtime and no needles involved. It is the only micro-focused ultrasound with visualisation (MFU-V) technology that has been cleared by the FDA (one of the world’s most stringent regulatory bodies for healthcare, ensuring the safety and efficacy of products and medical devices) and is CE-certified in Europe for non-surgical lifting of the skin on the upper and lower face, neck and décolletage.

Typical Ultherapy® patients range in age from 30’s-60’s, but those who are older or younger may also benefit from treatment. Although it is an anti-ageing treatment, age is less important than skin quality when considering Ultherapy®. If you are experiencing mild to moderate skin laxity (if your skin feels less firm than it used to and is starting to sag) then Ultherapy® can be used to delay these signs of ageing; lifting, toning and tightening the skin in your areas of concern.

Ultherapy® will not duplicate the results of a facelift but is a great option for those who are looking for a non-surgical, non-invasive option. It is a great treatment if you are looking to lift and tighten areas such as the face, neck or décolletage but do not want to have to resort to surgery.

Ultherapy® can be used to target:

  • Skin laxity / sagging skin /jowls
  • Lines & wrinkles on face, neck and décolletage
  • Heavy/lowered brow to rejuvenate the eye area

Ultherapy® can be used in any areas where skin laxity is a concern, but it is particularly effective for lifting, toning and tightening the skin on the face, jowls and neck area and is also commonly used to target loose skin and lines and wrinkles on the chest area (décolletage).

Ultherapy® and laser treatments use different forms of energy and target different concerns. The Ultherapy® device is used to tackle anti-ageing concerns from the inside out, generally in one single treatment. Laser therapy uses light energy to penetrate the skin from the outside in, targeting concerns that appear superficially on the skin and multiple treatments are generally required to deliver best results.  Ultherapy® bypasses the surface of the skin and uses ultrasound energy to penetrate deeper layers of tissue to stimulate your body’s own production of collagen and elastin, thereby addressing anti-ageing concerns at their core without any incision or disruption to the skin’s surface.

Rather than noticing ‘work done’ people will be more inclined to notice that you look more fresh-faced and well rested. The noticeable effects will be lifting and tightening of areas of sagging skin, giving you a more youthful appearance. The unnoticeable, yet crucial, result is the stimulation of new collagen and elastin underneath your skin, which helps to slow down the body’s natural ageing process. As Ultherapy® works by stimulating the growth of new collagen and elastin, results will appear more naturally, generating a gradual lifting and tightening of the skin for up to 6 months after treatment.

As a medical practice, we do all we can to minimise any pain or discomfort to our patients. Most patients do not describe Ultherapy® treatments as painful but may experience heat energy along with mild to moderate momentary discomfort and/or tingling sensations during the procedure, while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. Everyone has a different level of tolerance for pain and/or discomfort so some people may be more sensitive than others. Your practitioner will discuss options for appropriate pain relief with you at your consultation. Generally, to make the procedure as comfortable as possible you will be asked to arrive an hour ahead of your appointment for preventative pain relief to be administered. Pain relief may take the form of anesthetic injections, nerve block and/or topical numbing cream.

Ultherapy® uses ultrasound energy to stimulate natural collagen and elastin production in the skin. As it takes time for your body to produce new collagen and elastin, results with Ultherapy® are gradual and progressive. You should start to see noticeable results around 4-6 weeks after treatment. Skin lifting and tightening will continue to gradually improve for 2-3 months following Ultherapy® treatment, with optimal results being achieved after 6 months.

For most patients, a single Ultherapy® treatment can give a lasting result for over a year. However, depending on the extent of the skin laxity being treated and your body’s own biological response to treatment and collagen building, some patients may benefit from additional treatments. Where this applies, your practitioner will discuss this with you at your consultation.

As the ageing process is continuous, best results from Ultherapy® will be achieved as part of a long-term treatment journey, with ongoing maintenance treatments, every 12-18 months to help the outcomes keep pace with your body’s natural ageing process. Your practitioner will be able to advise you on this as part of an ongoing treatment plan.

Ultherapy® is a non-invasive treatment as the ultrasound energy is delivered in the deeper sub dermal tissue layers, where collagen and elastin are produced, and it completely by-passes the surface of the skin. As it is completely non-invasive, there should be no need for downtime following treatment. You should be able to go about your normal activities and there are no special post-treatment measures to follow.

As with all aesthetic procedures, there can be potential side effects. These include redness for a few hours or slight swelling for a few days following the procedure. Tingling or tenderness to the touch is possible for a few weeks after the procedure.

Ultherapy® is currently available at our Bothwell and Grampian clinics.

Every Ultherapy® treatment is tailored to the individual’s needs and depends on the extent of the area being treated. The first step is to have a no obligation consultation to determine how the Ultherapy® treatment can be personailsed to best meet your needs. Your proposed treatment plan would be quoted to you following your consultation before considering whether or not to go ahead with treatment. Guideline prices that treatments start from can be found by clicking here.

Here, at Clinetix. we don’t treat our patients blindly by adopting a ‘one size fits all approach’. Every patient is unique and, so, we firstly carry out a detailed consultation, to ensure that the treatment is right for your needs and will generate the best outcomes for you. Having a detailed consultation prior to your treatment allows you to consider whether Ultherapy® is the right treatment option for you and allows your practitioner to create a truly bespoke treatment plan, designing the treatment parameters to specifically match your areas of concern and physiological signs of ageing.

If you are considering undergoing Ultherapy® treatment and would like to arrange a confidential, no obligation, consultation with one of our team, please visit the book a consultation page of our website to book an appointment at a date/time that is most convenient for you.
