Ultherapy the latest non surgical facelift
It is non-invasive and creates a non surgical facelift.
It is ideal for your face, neck and chest. The ultrasound activates your own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin, resulting in a natural anti ageing process.
The system utilises the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of your skin—including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift–without disturbing the surface of the skin.
With Ultherapy, there’s no downtime, no foreign substances, no radical change; just a healthy change beginning on the inside for a natural, noticeable effect on the outside.

In the beginning, in the early 80’s, Dermal fillers arrived.
Then lasers, anti wrinkle injections…all still useful in their own way and all still popular options at Aesthetica.
Then there’s always been facelift surgery.
For the first time in 2012, Ultherapy enabled Aesthetica Doctors and Dermal clinicians to direct sound waves not only into your skin but deep under the skin to the same tissue addressed in surgery.
There is a broad range of people who can benefit, but typically those in their mid thirties and older are good candidates. While this is not a replacement for surgery, there are many people who want some lifting, in order to look more refreshed and toned but are not ready for surgery.
Before and after photos of Pauline. She had a full face Ultherapy non-surgical skin tightening treatment.

At 40 years old she was feeling that her features were beginning to droop and sag. She described the appearance of her skin as dull.
In the first image, she is halfway through treatment to the right hand side face, the left is untreated.
The other photo is her pleasing results 3 months later.
How Does Ultherapy Work
Ultherapy works in two layers.
Firstly targeting the SMAS layer (also targeted in facelift). This is the fissure that lines the muscle and is responsible for the movement of 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 the dermal area.
This all happens beneath the skin.
Results will unfold over the course of 2-3 months with some patients reporting continued improvement for up to 6 months. While ultrasound does not duplicate the results of surgery, Ultherapy has proven to be an alternative for those who are not yet ready for surgery.
This puts a hiccup in the ageing process. So maintenance treatments such as Accent RF or Rejuvenation facial treatments can be beneficial.
Annual or bi annual Ulthera non-surgical skin tightening touch-up treatments can also help keep pace with your natural ageing process.
This is not a replacement for the dramatic effects of facelift surgery however the results are still pleasing.
How is Ulthera non-surgical skin tightening different from other cosmetic procedures?
Ultherapy is the only nonsurgical cosmetic procedure 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.
An Ultherapy non-surgical skin tightening facelift treatment can take up 2 hours and a neck lift treatment can take approximately hour.
What are the Ultherapy risks?
As with any treatment at Aesthetica, all potential risks and complications, along with your expectations are discussed at your consultation prior to your treatment .
Ultrasound energy has been in use in medical imaging for over 50 years.
After demonstrating safety in clinical studies, Ultherapy has both Australian TGA approval and American FDA approval for skin tightening.
Tens of thousands of treatments have been performed worldwide without any significant adverse events.
