Looking for a way to lift, tighten, and define your lower face, chin and neck without surgery or injections?
Ultherapy may be the perfect solution for you!
As you age, your body creates less collagen, causing wrinkles and sagging skin that produces the visible signs of aging. Ultherapy is a non-surgical skin tightening and lifting procedure that non-invasively contracts your skin and stimulates collagen growth, resulting in a more youthful, lifted appearance for your face and neck.
A single Ultherapy treatment can boost your skin’s natural ability to produce fresh, new collagen to create a natural, noticeable definition and a firmer, more youthful appearance. Because it boosts natural collagen production deep beneath the skin’s surface, there’s no downtime or recovery period – the surface of your skin remains undamaged.
When Will I See the Results From Ultherapy?
The final results of Ultherapy are achieved after 3-6 months. You will notice a gradual improvement over this period with the skin becoming firmer and appearing more youthful as the body produces more collagen and elastin.
Patients usually require a single treatment, but you may need a second Ultherapy procedure after 6 months to achieve your desired look.
Ultherapy is often combined with cosmetic laser treatments to combat visible signs of ageing and rejuvenate sun-damaged skin. We also combine the Ultherapy with biostimulator treatments to achieve improvement in the skin texture and to create a sublte lift and firming the lower face to provide impressive natural-looking results.
How Long Do Results Last?
As Ultherapy stimulates collagen production within the body, the longevity of results depends on the individual patient. Most clients only require one treatment, while some may benefit from an additional session.
Most patients are still satisfied with results 18 months to 5 years after their initial treatment. However, as your skin continues to age, we might recommend a 12-month follow-up treatment to continue combating any new signs of ageing. This is dependent on the factors that have contributed to the ageing process.
What Should I Expect During the Procedure?
During your consultation at b clinic, your clinician will discuss your treatment goals to ensure that Ultherapy is the right treatment for you.
Before treatment, a cooling gel is applied to the area to allow for better penetration of the ultrasound energy. A topical numbing cream will also be used to minimise any discomfort during the treatment.
Your clinician will use a monitor to visualise the area and determine the thickness of the skin. This will reveal the optimal level needed to achieve the best skin rejuvenation and collagen production for the non-surgical face-lift.
You may experience a brief heat sensation as the ultrasound energy is targeted into the layers of skin. You may feel minor discomfort with each 2-second ultrasound pulse, but treatment is usually pain-free due to the numbing cream.
The treatment time varies depending on the area being treated. A full treatment of the lower face and neck can take up to 90 minutes.
Once the non-invasive treatment is complete, patients can leave the clinic and carry on with their normal daily routine.
*Individual results may vary.
Ultherapy also combines wonderfully with hyper-diluted biostimulator filler treatments and laser procedures. Both of these treatments target the appearance of your skin, working in tandem with Ultherapy for a complete rejuvenation solution.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
Ultherapy’s groundbreaking technology uses ultrasound to stimulate and lift your skin’s deep structural support layers, including those typically targeted during a surgical face-lift.
By sending precise waves of ultrasound energy into targeted areas, Ultherapy can lift the skin and improve laxity of the face and neck without damaging the outer layers. The focused ultrasound energy stimulates new collagen and elastin production to kick start the growth of new stronger fibres. As a result, the skin becomes firmer, tighter, and younger-looking.
Ultrasound energy has been safely used for over 50 years, and patients have benefited from Ultherapy technology in over 700,000 treatments worldwide to date.
As our professionally trained practitioners deliver the ultrasound, you’ll feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths in your skin. This indicates that the collagen-building process has begun.
Who Is Suitable to Have This Treatment?
Ultherapy is an effective skin-tightening solution for anybody looking to prevent or reverse the signs of ageing.
It’s best suited to patients wanting to achieve a more youthful appearance without invasive treatments’ risks and side effects. You may be the ideal candidate for this treatment if you’ve recently noticed your:
- Skin is less firm and toned
- Jowls are heavier, & there’s skin laxity under your chin
- The neck is lined & wrinkled
- Jawline is less defined
We typically see great results in those aged 30 or older with mild to moderate soft tissue and skin laxity. Younger people who want to prevent the signs of ageing and those looking to prolong the effects of previous cosmetic surgery tend to achieve the best results from Ultherapy treatments.
Benefits of Ultherapy
Ultherapy is the best non-surgical treatment to contour, define and lift the lower face. You can achieve a more youthful look without the need for invasive treatments. This treatment offers several benefits, including:
Ultherapy delivers ultrasound heat energy into the deeper layers of the skin to lift and tighten the area around the chin and lower face creating a more defined jawline and youthful appearance without the risks and painful side effects associated with surgery or other invasive procedures.
Ultrasound imaging enables the clinician to visualise the deeper layers of skin. This allows for precise targeting of the ultrasound energy to achieve great results from a single treatment.
You can return to your regular daily routine immediately after receiving Ultherapy treatment. There is no downtime or need to avoid certain activities. The treated area may feel tender, and you may experience mild swelling, but these side effects are mild and will subside in the days following the procedure.
Results gradually improve over the weeks following your Ultherapy procedure. There are no dramatic instant results. Your friends and colleagues will think you look healthier and more youthful.
Because Ultherapy stimulates the body’s collagen and elastin production, results are long-lasting. You can expect your firmer skin and youthful glow to last from 18 months.

Does Ultherapy Replace a Surgical Face-Lift?
No, but Ultherapy treatments are an effective alternative for those not wanting to undergo a surgical face-lift. It can also help if you’ve previously had a face-lift but still feel unsatisfied with sagging jowls and skin laxity in the lower face and neck.
Ultherapy is considered the most effective non-surgical cosmetic face-lift procedure. With nearly a million treatments worldwide, Ultherapy is a popular alternative to surgery for both patients and clinicians. By using ultrasound waves to stimulate collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin, Ultherapy treatments may reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles by lifting and tightening the lower face to improve skin laxity
Does Ultherapy Hurt?
Comfort levels vary from patient to patient, but any sensation you may feel will only occur during delivery of the micro-focused ultrasound energy. We’ll apply a numbing cream to your skin 45 minutes before the treatment to minimise any discomfort.
Immediately after your treatment, your skin may appear flushed, but this redness will disappear within a few hours. You can apply make-up straight after your treatment so you can return to normal activities.
Some patients may experience slight temporary swelling, tingling, or tenderness. Other less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of the skin.
Is There Any Downtime?
No. After your procedure, you can immediately return to work, social activities, and exercise.
You may experience some minor redness and swelling, but this will subside within 24-48 hours. Your skin may feel tender and have a slight tingling sensation for up to a week post-procedure.
Possible Risks and Complications
Ultherapy is a very safe and clinically proven non-surgical procedure. Over 700,000 treatments have been performed worldwide, and 21 clinical studies support the efficacy of the non-invasive procedure.
The most common side-effects are the sensation of heat and tingling as the ultrasound energy is delivered during the procedure. You may also experience slight redness and swelling, but this will subside within a couple of days of treatment.
Side-effects can include bruising and numbness, but these are very rare and unlikely if a skilled clinician performs your treatment. Your skin may feel tender for up to a week post-procedure.
It’s important to choose a clinic that uses ultrasound visualisation as part of its Ultherapy skin tightening treatments. This technology enables the clinician to see the precise skin layers and target the ultrasound energy exactly where it needs to go to achieve the best possible skin lifting and tightening results.
