ULTRAcel is a revolutionary treatment which lifts and tightens the skin without surgery. Using ultrasound and radio frequency, ULTRAcel promotes collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin for skin that looks tighter and feel firmer. In addition, you will find that this treatment has a smoothing effect as it softens fine lines and wrinkles. As this treatment is non-surgical, it is very comfortable and most patients experience little or no downtime which means that you can back to your regular routine without disruption*.
After your treatment you will see an instant mini-lift which will continue to improve over the coming months. Best results will be seen 3 months post-treatment and we recommend a course of 3 sessions taken about 1 month apart*.
We have put together a number of different ULTRAcel packages: brow lift, lower face and neck (jowl lift) and full face and neck. Our lower face and neck is our most popular option as it helps refine the jawline and lift double chins.

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.
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.
