ULTRAcel Before & After Results At Light Touch Clinic
Our medically trained team have been performing non-surgical skin tightening and rejuvenation treatments at our award-winning Surrey clinic since 2009 with excellent results.
Tighten Sagging Skin With Radio Frequency
As we age our skin loses elasticity and volume in the upper half of our face decreases. This is due to facial muscles diminishing, as well as collagen and elastin production slowing. This all causes skin to lose its elasticity.
Radio Frequency treatments deliver heat to collagen in the deeper layers of the skin and makes skin tighten while also promoting new collagen to be produced.
ULTRAcel is a completely non-invasive treatment which uses the latest radio frequency in combination with ultrasound technology. This combo not only targets deep layers of the skin to promote growth of healthy new collagen, but ULTRAcel also lifts and tightens sagging skin – all without the need for surgery.
A Genuine Alternative To Surgery
ULTRAcel is a great alternative to surgical lifting or tightening. Our patients see rejuvenated, tighter, and firmer skin following their advised number of treatments.
The treatment is virtually pain free*, with the radiofrequency comparable to that of a hot stone massage. There is also no downtime with ULTRAcel, with a full recovery after two to three hours*.
How Does ULTRAcel Work?
ULTRAcel uses a combination of radiofrequency and ultrasound that produces a safe amount of heat which can be targeted on particular problem areas of sagging skin.
The radio frequency device delivers heat, which affects collagen in the deeper layers of the skin. This causes deep structures of the skin to tighten, and over time, new and remodelled collagen is produced.
Ultrasound waves are then beamed to a controlled targeted depth of the skin where thermal heat energy tightens and contracts underlying tissue, right down to the muscle layer. Thermal deep tissue injury stimulates the growth of new healthy collagen for prolonged and more intensive tightening.
This combination of radiofrequency and ultrasound provides an overall more youthful appearance to your facial features.
Step By Step:
Step 1) High intensity ultrasound is administered in the problem area, targeting the deeper skin layers 4.5mm below the skin’s surface.
Step 2) This process is then repeated at 3.0mm below the skin’s surface.
Step 3) The heat stimulates the deeper tissue layers like the fascia, SMAS, fibrous tissue of fat, dermal layer, and dermis.
Step 4) Gradual skin tightening and lifting occurs naturally over several months as the skin and deeper tissues layers rebuild.
Effective Double Chin Treatment
Double chins (submental fat) are a very common area of complaint at our Surrey clinic. They are often seen to be a cause of being overweight, but this is not always the case. Sagging and lose skin caused by poor skin elasticity can also make chin’s look flabby.
Be it an extra layer of fat under the chin or loose skin elasticity, ULTRAcel skin tightening can help greatly reduce submental fat without the need for going under the knife.
Another regular area of concern for our patients is saggy and droopy jowls. Sagging jowls is the loose skin which hangs along the lower jawline. This distorts facial definition and is a common sign of ageing. But ageing isn’t the only cause for drooping jowls; generics, UV sun damage and smoking can also contribute.
ULTRAcel radio frequency treatment is a great non-surgical option for sagging jowls. The technology can be targeted to the jaw area and tighten loose hanging skin, creating a firmer, more defined jawline.

ULTRAcel, and radio frequency skin treatments in general, are very low impact and have minimal downtime. Due to this there is very little that needs to be done regarding aftercare.
Using moisturisers and undertaking your regular skin care routine are all fine to do post-treatment.
Why Choose Light Touch Clinic
What does the treatment involve?
A thin gel will be applied to the treatment area and the hand piece will be moved systematically over the area, heating the skin. Immediately after radiofrequency we then change hand pieces and cause deep tissue tightening with ultrasound.
How many treatments are required?
The number of treatments required will depend on the original quality of the skin and degree of damage to be treated, but between 1 and 3 treatments may be recommended. Your practitioner will be able to discuss a treatment plan during your consultation. Normally however we can get immediate results with just 1 treatment.
Does It Hurt?
A mild prickling sensation may be felt in the treatment area where energy builds in the deeper tissue layers. Energy levels will be adjusted according to individual patient’s feedback to ensure that the treatment is comfortable.
What is the downtime following an ULTRAcel treatment?
This is a non-invasive procedure which has little to no downtime. Immediately post treatment, the skin may feel warm to touch. In a limited number of patients, there may be a mild sensation of deep tissue tenderness for 5 to 7 days.
How long before I see results?
Immediately after treatment your skin will look and feel tighter and more defined. The degree of immediate tightening varies between patients and most patients’ results continue to improve for at least 3 months as tired collagen is replaced with new stronger collagen as part of the deep tissue healing process. Repeat treatment programs will be recommended on an individual patient process; however, results are predicted to last for a number of years with the skin naturally commencing the ageing process once again.
