Non-surgical face treatment
Ultherapy, also known as Ulthera, non-surgical facelift, non-invasive facelift, Ultraformer face lifting or HiFu.
We use genuine Ultherapy equipment and protocols. It is the only approved FDA and TGA treatment for skin tightening and lifting in the brow and decolletage.
Ultherapy has many peer-review papers and results. It is one of the most popular non-invasive treatments for your face, neck and decolletage.
It is starting to rival the traditional surgical facelift.
More About Ultherapy
Ultherapy uses targeted ultrasound pulses.
In your 30 – 60 minute treatment, the targetted ultrasound will work on two separate levels.
It will take 2-6 months to see the final results but will not duplicate the results of facelift surgery.
Aesthetica – Ultherapy
Everyone is suitable for Ultherapy. Men, in particular, love it because it can a single one-off treatment!
It is safe to use on all skin colours.
How does Ultherapy work?
Using ultrasound technology it works from the inside out. Your Aesthetica Ultherapy treatment will be performed using the original and genuine Ulthera. It is manufactured in America and has FDA approval in America and TGA in Australia for skin tightening.
Ultherapy works in two layers.
Firstly targeting the SMAS layer (the layer that lines the muscle, also treated in a facelift). This is the fissure that lines the muscle and is responsible for the movement of the muscle. By introducing heat to this tissue it begins the wound healing process and stimulation.
Then a second pass is where we target the Dermis, this layer is more superficial to the SMAS layer.
All this happens beneath the skin because the surface of the skin remains untouched, so no downtime!
How does it differ from other procedures?
Your Ultherapy is the only non-surgical treatment that uses ultrasound to specifically target the foundation layer of facial tissue.
Lasers can only to superficial layers.
Radio frequency can go deeper than lasers.
The use of ultrasound also enables us to see the layers of skin we are treating. The energy can then be delivered precisely to where it will be most productive.
Is Ultherapy painful?
Many forums indicate the pain as the biggest hurdle to overcome for your treatment. However, recent protocol changes make the treatment more comfortable.
At Aesthetica, we understand and will work with you to achieve maximum results with minimum pain. We will introduce enough heat for each patient’s comfort level. Too much heat is of no benefit, but, in fact, can potentially cause complications.
How long does it take?
Your Ultherapy treatment can take up 2 hours. However, you are here for two and a half hours just so you feel comfortable and not rushed. Once your treatment is completed you can relax under the Omnilux light to kick start the healing process.
