You want to wear your face - not the other way around! When we heard about this little miracle worker - and saw the results we had to share... admit it - not all of us want to age gracefully!

Fresh from the US this results-driven treatment works best on the neck and face to help tighten skin and leave you looking ultra fresh. Plus the earlier you start sessions, the better your chances in the fight against time.

Sounds good doesn't it?

Literally. Ultherapy uses the power of ultrasound to tighten and lift sagging skin to leave you looking lovely and smooth.

What is it?

Ultherapy is a gravity fighter as it tightens, tones and lifts loose skin.

Our brows and eyes start to appear smaller when our brows descend (thanks to that pesky gravity) but Ultherapy can boost up your brow and make you look younger. Whoop!

But you don't have to be droopy, saggy or lose skinned to enjoy the results of Ultherapy - if you start younger you can stay ahead of the ageing process by effectively putting collagen in the bank - think of it as Skinsurance!

How does it work?

Ultherapy uses the power of ultrasound to stimulate the deep layers of the skin, right down to the fibromuscular layer - the one which is typically addressed during cosmetic surgery.

The advantage of Ultherapy is that there are no knives or slicing, just skin tightening, lifting and smoothing.

It's actually the first and only ultrasound device approved for use in facial aesthetics, and is FDA approved as the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging.

Well what is that we hear you ask? Essentially, ultra sound imaging allows your cosmetic practitioner to see the layers of tissue targeted during treatment and ensure that the energy is delivered precisely to where it will be most productive. And that means better, more precise results.

Then we should also mention that the treatment also helps stimulate your skin's natural production of collagen so you can continue to reap the benefits for weeks after your session.

The Technique

Depending on which facial area you want to focus on (neck, forehead etc), a treatment usually lasts between 30 - 60 minutes.

Post treatment there is virtually no downtime, making it a perfect post work treatment or lunch break face fix.

The Results

Most patients only require one treatment and you notice some initial effect immediately following the procedure, but the ultimate lifting will take 2 - 3 months, as tired collagen is rejuvenated and supplemented with new, stronger collagen.

All made by your very own (and clever) body. Not bad eh?

The Experts

Some of the most high-profile and celebrated practitioners in the country are among the first to offer Ultherapy in the UK including Dr Rita Rakus, Mark Palmer, Alex Karidis and Simon Lee.

Ok how much?

Beauty comes at a price, but if you're keen for a facelift effect without the surgery then this is well worth it.

Although prices may vary, a full face and neck treatment plan comes in at around £4000 while a lower face and neck treatment plan is just shy of £3000.
