What is Ultherapy?

25th March 2022

Revive your collagen and elastin naturally and non-surgically with Ultherapy.

Simply put, this non-invasive treatment goes deeper to stimulate production of your body’s own collagen and elastin for a natural looking result without surgery or downtime. The treatment works to lift and tighten the skin on the face, neck and decolletage to give a fresher and more youthful appearance.

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy distributes intense ultrasound energy that penetrates deep underneath the skin – the same layers of skin that surgeons focus on during a facelift! However, with Ultherapy, the skin is never breached. The release of the ultrasound energy deep into the skin tissue invigorates the body’s natural responses. The results of Ultherapy are not immediately visible, as collagen production takes time. Results usually appear over two to three months. After that time, you’ll notice the skin on your face and neck feeling significantly smoother and brighter.

How Does Ultherapy Work?

Aloki’s state of the art Ultherapy treatment utilises focused, ultrasound energy on the face and neck to heat deep skin tissue from within. This process acts to indicate to your body that it needs to begin creating fresh new collagen. Collagen is an essential building block protein for your skin, keeping the skin toned and firm. We lose collagen reserves as we get older, leading to loose and sagging skin. Ultherapy prevents your collagen from depleting to slow the ageing process.

The Difference Between Ultherapy & Other Skin Treatments

These are the key differences between Ultherapy and other skin procedures:

1. Ultherapy is Non-Invasive

Ultherapy is an entirely external procedure. The ultrasound energy treats the deep foundational layer addressed in more invasive cosmetic surgery (like a facelift), but won’t wholly mimic those results. Ultherapy is an excellent treatment for those looking for an alternative to surgery. It is also used by patients to maintain their results from surgery.

2. Ultherapy Targets Deeper Layers of the Skin

The ultrasound energy used in Ultherapy penetrates the skin’s tissue to boost collagen production. Compared to a procedure like a laser treatment which relies on light energy and cannot reach those deeper skin layers, laser treatments are used to treat superficial skin and are not lifting and tightening the skin like Ultherapy does.

3. Lasting Results of Ultherapy

All patients have their own unique bodies and processes. Ultherapy stimulates your own collagen production, so the lasting nature of the results differs from person to person. As the results appear over two to three months, they can last for well over a year in many cases. Your natural ageing process will also dictate the effectiveness.

4. Safety

Ultherapy makes use of ultrasound energy that has been used in the medical field safely for over fifty years. Ultherapy is performed worldwide, and over one million procedures have been performed successfully. Minor side effects after the treatment include a slightly flushed appearance or slight tingling of the face and neck.
