Ultherapy® is an effective alternative treatment for Face, eyebrows and neck lift surgery. It’s a non-surgical treatment for people who want to lift and sculpt their face, neck and décolletage to look more youthful and it helps contouring the jawlines.
As we get older it becomes harder for our skin to produce collagen, which can cause wrinkles, sagging and loss of suppleness. Ultherapy® boosts the natural production of collagen in the skin, giving you extremely natural, lifted results.
This treatment is the Gold Standard for non-surgical lifting, resulting in excellent results with minimal downtime and only momentary discomfort. Therefore it is an ideal treatment for celebrities or anyone who doesn’t want any downtime.
Typically, Ultherapy® treatments will take between 30-90 minutes to complete, depending on the areas to be treated.
Ultherapy® is used to stimulate collagen production and can be used anywhere on the face and chest.
Facial treatments can focus around the temple and eyebrows, eyelids, upper and lower face, around the mouth, brows and down the neck.
Chest treatments can focus on the décolletage area which can often show early signs of aging.
Ultherapy® is an ultrasound treatment that is conducted as follows:
After an Ultherapy® treatment, most people should not experience any side effects – apart from some redness immediately after treatment, but this should last no more than a few hours.
Some patients may experience swelling, tingling or tenderness, but these also won’t last very long and should not stop you from resuming your typical daily activities.
Ultherapy® is a non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound technology to target deep structural layers of the skin to increase collagen production.
Unlike other non-surgical face lift treatments, Ultherapy® does not rely on guesswork when finding the right layers of skin to target. Instead, your practitioner will be able to actually see under the skin so they hit the right target, every time.
The length of the treatment will depend on the areas you want to target ie. face and neck, brow bone only, décolletage etc. Most people will spend no more than 90 minutes in the clinic receiving this treatment.
Ultherapy® works by using micro-focused ultrasound under the skin’s surface to create cellular friction and pin-pointed heating.
This procedure causes collagen to be produced at a faster rate which can help to softly tone your face and neck, smooth out fine lines, and make skin appear fresher and more youthful.
Ultherapy® works similarly to a magnifying glass and sunlight, focussing 65°C heat at a specific point to create a reaction, while leaving the skin’s surface and upper layers completely unaffected.
Everyone’s pain thresholds are different, so will deal with the burning sensation caused by Ultherapy® in different ways.
You can talk to your practitioner about how to minimise the pain if you’re worried, but generally the procedure only causes patients momentary discomfort, which goes away after treatment.
Ultherapy® delivers relatively quick and natural results for patients. Although the results are not instant, you should start to see some change in your face and neck around 3 months post-treatment.
Collagen takes a while to grow, and it takes time for old tissue to be replaced, so it’s good to be patient.
The effects of Ultherapy® are also long lasting, with a single treatment being able to last for over a year.
Choosing The London Cosmetic Clinic for your Ultherapy® treatment is a great decision because:
Ultherapy® is the only US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared and CE certified procedure for non-invasive sculpting and lifting of the skin and has been used in over 1,750,000 treatments worldwide.

Yes, Ultherapy® is suitable for everyone – no matter your skin tone or type.
The best time to get Ultherapy® is when you notice that your skin is becoming less firm and tight. You may be noticing your brows drooping, skin sagging under your chin, or fine lines and wrinkles becoming more noticeable on your face and chest.
No matter your issue, we can tailor your treatment to suit your needs. Ultherapy® is extremely versatile, and fully customisable.
Ultherapy® treatment stimulates collagen production. It results in the lifting of sagging skin in the target area and the improvement of wrinkles and lines.
You will notice a tightening of your skin almost immediately after your treatment. However before you can see significant changes, it may take up to 3 to 4 months.
On average, the result of Ultherapy® can last two years. However, the result can last longer if you follow up the treatment with lifestyles that support the maintenance of produced collagen and the production of new ones. You should also avoid habits such as excessive smoking and exposure of your skin to ultraviolet rays if you want the result to last longer.
Other factors that may affect the longevity of your treatment include your age when you got the treatment as well as the area you are targeting. For people who are over 60 years old when they undergo the treatment, the result may not last longer compared to younger people because their body cannot produce enough collagen and elastin as fast as it loses them.
Also, treatment targeting the sagging neck region and dropping jawline does not last longer compared to other areas. As such you may need maintenance treatment after every six months or a yearly Ultherapy® treatment routine to maintain your desired skin at all times.
The number of times you can undergo Ultherapy® treatment is based on your decision. You can decide to wait till the result of your last treatment lapse, make your treatment a yearly skincare routine or come in for maintenance every six months.
Although Ultherapy® results can last up to two years, that doesn’t mean you have to wait till the result lapse before you can get another one. This is because the result of Ultherapy® doesn’t show immediately. It may take up to 3 to 4 months before you see the desired change. If you wait till your last treatment lapse before you get another one, you may have to deal with signs of aging during those waiting periods.
Yearly routine Ultherapy® will support a consistent supply of collagen to keep you younger at all times. During your consultation, our doctors will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that suits your skincare goal.
Normally, one session of Ultherapy® treatment is enough for you to achieve the desired result. However, if you have an extreme case of collagen loss, you may need up to 2 to 3 sessions. During your consultation, our cosmetic experts will examine your skin to determine the number of sessions you require to achieve your desired goal.
Ultherapy® is a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved non-invasive skin treatment. It is approved as a safe treatment around the face, neck and chest region.
This non-surgical treatment can not damage your face as long as the procedure is handled by experts in the field of cosmetic procedures with a proven track record of success. Ultherapy® can not cause any damage to your facial skin and nerves except if the procedure is wrongly handled by your physician.
Here at London Cosmetic Clinic, our expert cosmetic doctors will examine your skin before the procedure and deliver a world-class treatment according to your specific need. You will be treated in a safe environment by experts who will handle both your skin and the Ultherapy® machine carefully to avoid skin damage.
The answer to whether or not Ultherapy® is painful is relative. It all depends on your pain threshold. However, Ultherapy® is not an extremely painful treatment. It doesn’t require incision or anaesthesia. You may feel a warm sensation under your skin during the procedure due to the stimulation of collagen. Despite the ease of the process, we will apply pain numbing cream to the treatment area before we start to eliminate any risk of pain.
