More About Ultherapy
Ultherapy uses targeted ultrasound pulses and your own healing processes to lift, tighten, tone and refresh your skin.
In your 30 – 60 minute treatment the ultrasound will stimulate two separate levels – the deep structural support layers of the skin, including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift, without disturbing the surface of the skin to tighten.
Then stimulate new collagen more superficially.
Without any downtime, you may see the beginning of change immediately, however, it will take 2-6 months to see the final results.
Ultherapy will not duplicate the results of facelift surgery. However, it is proving to be a very popular option.

Aesthetica – Ultherapy
Everyone is suitable for Ultherapy. Men, in particular, love it because it can a single one-off treatment!
All ages can have an Ultherapy treatment (provided you are not contraindicated to the treatment).
As a result, it can be used as a preventative or as a rebuilding process.
It is safe to use on all skin colours.
So how does Ultherapy work?
Using ultrasound technology and working from the inside out to rejuvenate and tighten loose skin; your Aesthetica Ultherapy treatment will be performed by 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.
As we age the Dermis begins to thin. So by stimulating the cells in this layer, we begin to reawaken the collagen and elastin cells. Hence, resulting in rebuilding and thickening of the dermal area.
As a result, this all happens beneath the skin because the surface of the skin remains untouched, so no downtime!
How does it from other procedures?
Your Ultherapy treatment is the only non-surgical facelift that uses ultrasound to specifically target the foundation layer of facial tissue that cosmetic surgeons address in surgery.
Lasers can only to superficial layers.
Radio frequency can go deeper than lasers.
The use of ultrasound also enables us to actually see the layers of skin we are treating, allowing the energy to 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 and redevelopment of our guidelines 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 non-surgical facelift can take up 2 hours and a neck lift treatment can take approximately hour. However, you are here for two and a half hours just so you feel comfortable and not rushed. Finally, once your treatment is completed you can relax under the Omnilux Red light to kick start the healing process.
