Tess Daly Ambassador Of the Best Non Surgical Facelift 2021 | A Honest Ultherapy Full-On

Published on: November 3, 2021

If the idea of having surgery scares you, then you landed in the right place.

We will talk about the best non-surgical facelift of 2021. With a particular focus on the ultimate no-downtime treatment for people wanting to lift, restore suppleness, and redefine the contours of their face and neck, as well as smooth their décolletage—the magic Ultherapy.

To truly obtain lifted, firm skin, highly invasive procedures were involved, requiring longer recoveries and post-operation care until a few years ago.

But in 2021, with today’s tools and technology, the newest procedures allow you to lift, smooth and indulge the skin into submission—in a safe, quick and comfortable way.


Ultherapy Conquers The Podium As One Of The Best Non-Surgical Facelift Procedure


How Does Ultherapy Works?

Ultherapy is one of the best non-surgical facelifts (and not only) of 2021.

A non-surgical treatment that uses micro-focused ultrasound with visualisation (MFU-V) to target the deep structural skin layers without disrupting the skin’s surface, stimulating new collagen and elastin production.

Why does MFU-V matter?

When trying to stimulate new collagen, many treatments rely on guesswork to target the correct skin layers.

With Ultherapy, your practitioner can see under the skin so they can hit the target every time. 

Treatments typically take anywhere between 30 minutes and an hour and a half, depending on the treatment area and your treatment plan.

A face and neck treatment takes around an hour to 90 minutes, while a décolletage treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.

There is no actual downtime with Ultherapy, either. You may have a bit of redness, where the skin will appear flushed immediately after treatment, but that should subside within a few hours.

Some patients also experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness. These are temporary, and you should be able to resume your normal lifestyle and activities immediately.

One of the reasons people love Ultherapy is that the results are so natural. You will begin to see results from around three months post-treatment as the growth of new collagen and elastin replaces old tissue targeted—effect lasts for over a year.

Add to this the fact it does all of this with no surgery, minimal downtime and only momentary discomfort. Then it’s no wonder that a panel of experts appointed Ultherapy as the Gold Standard treatment for non-surgical lifting and tightening.


What do Celebrities think About Ultherapy?

Loved by celebs, including Ultherapy ambassador Tess Daly but not only, as far as treatments go, Ultherapy has become an increasingly popular skin tightening treatment over the past few years, with other celebrity fans.

Including Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox and Kim Kardashian.

With its natural-looking results, the ‘cutting-edge’ treatment utilises advanced ultrasound energy to stimulate the production of your natural collagen and elastin.

Softly define your jawline, reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the décolletage and lift a heavy brow, all with the bonus of smoother, glowing, healthy-looking skin.

“Tess Daly is one of those celebrities who looks so good you can’t help but wonder what her secret is.”

Sonia Haria’ (The Telegraph beauty director) words for Ultherapy ambassador Tess Daly.

The Strictly Come Dancing presenter had recently released an interview to The Telegraph about why she chooses Ultherapy over other beauty procedures.

Daly said,

“A friend of mine had had the treatment a few months earlier, and she looked so great,” she says. “She looked well-rested and her skin was glowing. I thought, ‘ok, let’s give this a go’. I loved the fact that Ultherapy boosts your collagen for natural-looking results and that it was a non-invasive treatment. I think it’s quite a revelation, really.”

“Within a few months, I was getting compliments from friends – this was back when we saw friends before lockdown! But what I love most is that you just look well-rested and like yourself but on a really good day.”

“For me, my goal is luminous skin,” adds Daly. “It’s skin that looks good. To achieve that, I know I have to use SPF and drink as much water as I can, and this is another treatment that is working with your skin from the inside out to give it a helping hand and a boost.”

After her initial treatment, Daly continues,

“I then had a top-up treatment around the jaw area to boost it a bit because I have a lot of laughter lines. I talk a lot in my job, so it’s an occupational hazard, and I laugh a lot by nature. I think I’ve had laughter lines since I was about 15!

“Nobody wants to look like a strange wind tunnelled version of themselves. I think that in itself can be quite ageing. We’ve all seen it before when someone has had a treatment that may have been a bit extreme, and I think it can have the opposite effect and actually be quite ageing.”


‘We’ve only got one skin for all of our lives, which is why I really believe in investing in my skin’ says Daly


“My age doesn’t define me as a person or who I am or what I do on a daily basis. I feel the same as I always have. We’ve only got one skin for all of our lives, which is why I really believe in investing in my skin. I look after my body through good food and exercise, and I want to invest in my skin’s future, too.”

Adds Daly,

I believe in investing in my skin as I do in my general health, looking after what you have got. Ultherapy® works with your own skin to leave you looking refreshed and like you have had a good 8 hours sleep. Ultherapy®only took an hour with no downtime, and over time my skin felt more radiant, boosted and fresh.”April 2021 The Telegraph


Best Non-Surgical Facelift FAQs

Is Ultherapy for me?

Ultherapy is suitable for all skin tones and types, including darker skin tones. The treatment is ideal for those with mild to moderate skin laxity; that’s when you start to notice your skin has become less firm or tight.

If your brows have lowered and started to droop; you have begun to notice loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin or lines and wrinkles are becoming more noticeable on your chest, then it is very possible that Ultherapy could be an option for you.

The treatment can be tailored according to different areas of the face, and treatment plans can be customised to individual patient needs, making Ultherapy extremely versatile. You should always consult a qualified medical practitioner who will advise the most appropriate treatment plan for you.

Does it hurt?

Everybody will have different sensitivities to the heat generated during the treatment. Your practitioner will advise you on how best to manage any discomfort you may feel. Some people experience momentary discomfort during treatment, but this typically goes away once the treatment has ended.

Is it safe?

Ultherapy is the only US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared and CE certified procedure for non-invasive sculpting and lifting of the skin on the upper and lower face, under the chin, neck and on the eyebrows, and the improvement of the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. It’s also the only micro-focused ultrasound with visualisation (MFU-V) technology that has been reviewed and cleared by the FDA and CE mark certified in the EU. This means it has gone through rigorous testing.

The Ultherapy procedure has been used in over 1,750,000 treatments worldwide, with every Ultherapy practitioner receiving extensive procedural training and tools so you can feel confident in choosing the procedure.

Is this the same ultrasound used in maternity units?

Ultherapy uses two special types of ultrasound. The first emits parallel lines of ultrasound, just like in the maternity unit ultrasound machines. This is called DeepSEE™. These ultrasound emissions bounce back and allow your practitioner to see what is immediately under the treatment area.

Once the practitioner is satisfied that he or she is in the right position, the Ultherapy machine starts to treat where the ultrasound waves cross over at very precise depths. This crossing creates heat and it is this heat energy that initiates the body’s natural response to stimulate the growth of fresh, new collagen and elastin.

How Long Does The Treatment Take?

The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure takes 60–90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.

How many Ultherapy treatments will I need?

Most patients need one treatment. However, based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and the individual’s collagen-building process, some patients benefit from additional treatments. Because skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help patients keep pace with the body’s natural ageing process.

As with any aesthetic medical procedure, there’s always the possibility of side effects. Your practitioner will review these with you in detail during a consultation.


Incredibly happy with my gummy smile fix. It was my first time getting a cosmetic procedure and the LCC made me feel incredibly comfortable. Thank-you to Dr Johnson who walked me through the procedure ( which was incredibly fast and pain free!) and a massive thank you to Rahena! Your customer service was exceptional and made me feel really assured and comfortable. Will definitely be recommending the LCC to everyone. Incredibly professional and well priced clinic. I can already see a difference in my smile!
