Treatment

ULTRAcel Skin Tightening

When the internal processes that occur through ageing start to affect the face, volume loss, sagging skin and a dull complexion can alter the appearance and its youthful definition. The use of ULTRAcel skin tightening around the face, neck and jawline can help to tighten the skin and restore a firm, rejuvenated look.

As levels of collagen and elastin are lost when we get older, the skin loses volume and its supple, stretchy properties. The mid-face area can look flat and with the facial muscles starting to weaken, the natural fat pads can descend and give the face a sad and droopy look. ULTRAcel uses both HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) and radiofrequency technologies to target the skin’s surface, along with the deeper layers, to increase collagen production and tighten the skin. The handheld device can be used to deliver controlled heat to the concerned area of the face or neck, for a targeted approach to: jowls, a double chin, wrinkly neck and lax skin, for a refreshed and youthful look. Just one treatment can see a difference, improving further over a few months, as a series of sessions take effect. This treatment is a great alternative to more invasive surgical procedures; producing similar results to a traditional face-lift – without the downtime and extensive recovery.

ULTRAcel can be combined with INTRAcel to tighten the skin on more delicate areas of the face (such as the top lip and under the eyes), as well as the chest, hands, stomach, thighs and buttocks. By enhancing the levels of collagen in the skin, acne scarring, enlarged pores, stretch marks and excess skin left behind after other fat reducing procedures, can also see a marked improvement.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I suitable for this treatment?

ULTRAcel skin tightening is a suitable treatment for people who are noticing the effects of ageing on their appearance, as loose skin and volume loss are causing: jowls, neck wrinkles and general flattening of the face. Once a pre-treatment assessment has taken place, your aesthetic professional can recommend if this treatment will benefit you.

Is this a safe treatment?

This non-surgical procedure is considered safe, but must be performed by an appropriately trained professional. The treatment is also non-invasive, producing no pain and no downtime and uses the latest technologies and techniques.

Will it hurt?

As ULTRAcel is non-invasive, it should be a very comfortable treatment. You may feel some warming of the skin as the device is applied to the treatment area, but this is often described as very soothing and as relaxing as a hot stone massage.

What can I expect after the treatment?

Although a series of treatment sessions are generally recommended, many people will see an improvement in the tightness of the skin after the first session. This will continue to progress and improve as time passes and the number of sessions increase. You may need to allow around 3 months for the full outcome to be evident to allow for new collagen to grow and the deeper tissues to repair.

Are there any side effects or risks?

Many people find that they experience virtually no effects from the procedure, however, some cases report some slight irritation to the skin – similar to mild sunburn. Any redness to the skin has usually settled within 24 hours, as the skin heals and repairs. Other risks or effects will be discussed with you, prior to the procedure, during your one-to-one consultation.
