Unlike traditional laser devices that target just the superficial layers of the skin to treat pigment change and fine lines, ultherapy reaches a deeper layer of skin to lift and support the underlying structure.

By lifting your skin and promoting new collage production, ultherapy reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
Ultherapy uses focussed ultrasound energy to lift skin under your chin, on your neck, at your eyebrow, and across your décolleté.
Is Ultherapy Safe?

In fact, the ultrasound energy that it uses has been widely utilised in many fields of medicine for more than 50 years.

The great thing about ultherapy is that it is completely non-invasive. There is no downtime and the procedure can typically be done in a single treatment. From beginning to end, the treatment usually takes around two hours and then you’re ready to go back to your normal routine.
After the treatment, most patients find that their skin is a bit red but that typically passes after an hour or so. Those with sensitive skin occasionally experience minor bruising, tenderness, tingling, and slight inflammation, which will also subside pretty quickly.
