Ultherapy is a new non-invasive facial rejuvenation treatment to naturally tighten and lift the skin. This "non-surgical facelift", is a revelation in the world of aesthetic medicine.

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a cosmetic treatment that in a single session can tighten the skin of the neck, face and neckline without the need for more invasive procedures, thus reducing the risk of complications and discomfort. The results are very positive in some cases and moderate in others, depending on the factors involved in each individual case.

The improvements, evident from the outset, reach their maximum effect between 3-6 months after the start of the Ultherapy treatment. This non-surgical facelift technique, performed only in centres with experienced personnel, involves the emission of ultrasound (US) shots to the deeper layers of the skin. This stimulus generates an increase in the production of collagen and its remodelling effect from the inside out.

Ultherapy Results

Ultherapy offers several benefits compared to other facial rejuvenation treatments:

  • It does not alter or produce redness in the skin, as it acts on the deeper skin layers.
  • The results are more durable and permanent, again, because the changes occur in the inner part of the skin.
  • It has a cumulative effect. After the first treatment, the patient can undergo annual Ultherapy sessions to maintain the results or even improve them.
  • No preparation is needed before the Ultherapy procedure, nor recovery time after treatment, and the patient can continue with their normal routine directly after the session.

Ultherapy, without side effects or complications

The only side effects that have occurred in Ultherapy are small discomforts, such as tingling, or a slight numbness in the treated area, and some swelling in a very small minority of patients. These effects disappear within a few days after the treatment. In our experience, these discomforts have been short-term and have not required additional treatment to minimise them.

Ultherapy is a treatment that offers very positive and natural results, which represents a breakthrough in non-invasive facial rejuvenation techniques. It is highly recommended for patients who want to improve their appearance naturally and would never undergo surgery for a facelift.
