A Proven Alternative to a Face Lift
In our youth our facial fat pads sit in their correct position under the skin. The result is high looking cheeks and taut jaw lines. However, a natural part of the ageing process is gravity leaving the skin slacker, jaw lines undefined and brows drooping. Collagen and elastin production, which holds the skin taut and younger looking, shuts down gradually from our late twenty’s onwards and our fat pads move downwards in the facial area leaving us with heaviness around the brow and jaw line. Our skin also becomes more lax.
The beauty of Ultherapy® is that it works to actually stimulate your collagen and elastin to wake up and act as in your youth. The result is a gradual lifting of the skin minimising laxity so you look fresher and more youthful. Typical treatment areas are brows, cheek area, jaw line, neck and décolletage. Ultherapy® can also be used on the arms and over the knees.
How does Ultherapy® work?
Using targeted ultrasound energy Ultherapy® initiates the body’s natural response, known as neocollagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen and elastic. Focused ultrasound energy is delivered non-invasively and selectively into the dermal layer as well as the skin’s deep support structures without affecting intervening tissue. This is done around the eyes, cheeks and upper neck. Dermal Facial Fillers and Ultherapy® can be used together.
What Happens During a Ultherapy® Treatment?
After cleansing the skin and identifying the specific areas to be treated we apply the ultrasound gel and place the smooth treatment applicator against your skin. Next, we use Ultherapy®’s ultrasound imaging to first see deep within the skin to determine optimal placement of the treatment energy before delivering the focused ultrasound energy beneath the skin’s surface.
During the treatment delivery, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated.
Ultherapy® treatments do depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan, however, a face and neck procedure takes 60 – 90 minutes while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
Does the Ultherapy® Treatment Hurt?
Best known as the non-invasive alternative to a face lift Ultherapy® involves no needles or scalpels, there’s no downtime and, best of all, no scarring. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered.
Ultherapy® won Best Energy Based Device for the Anti-Ageing & Beauty Awards and Top Non-Surgical and Top Skincare Device for the Aesthetic EverythingR Aesthetic and Cosmetic Medicine 2018 – 2019.
What Can I Expect After My Ultherapy® Treatment?
Results can be seen in 2 – 3 months with the most dramatic results evident at 9 months. With no downtime necessary post-treatment with Ultherapy® you can return to your normal activities immediately after your treatment without any post-treatment restrictions or requirements. Your skin might appear flushed at first but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some clients’ experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch but these are mild and temporary in nature. Because skin continues to age future touch-up treatments can help you keep pack with your body’s natural ageing process.
While Ultherapy® won’t duplicate the results of a facelift it is a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery and can even be an option for clients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.

Now that I have my new hairpiece custom made, styled and designed for me personally – I could never go back to something ‘ready-made’. It gives me so much more confidence, I am not even aware that I am wearing anything. I don’t think of it as a wig – it’s just ‘my hair’.
Gills’ expertise, precision work, patience and understanding is amazing, her work is impressive – I couldn’t have asked for anything better.
I would recommend Optegra 100%. From the very first consultation to post op care I can honestly say I experienced first class service all the way. From consultant to admin, each person treated me as an individual. I found their professional manner reassuring in what for me was a life changing experience. In terms of the operation, I was informed of the process and expectations along the way. My experience was positive from start to finish
Fantastic treatment from start to end. It had been a pleasure. I had waited for this for several years, I finally plucked up the courage to have it done and the results are phenomenal. Thank you Jonathon for changing my life for the better!
I’m so happy I went to Mr Staiano for my surgery, I can’t imagine any other surgeon could have treated me better or given me better results.

How does Ultherapy® work?
Ultherapy® is a non-surgical ultrasound treatment that stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin deep within the skin. Ultherapy® uses precise ultrasound energy to target the deep structural layers of the skin without disrupting the skin’s surface. After treatment, the body’s tissue repair process stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin, creating a natural lifting effect.
How many Ultherapy® treatments will I need?
Most clients need just one treatment, however, based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and the individual’s collagen-building process some clients benefit from additional treatments. Because skin continues to age future touch-up treatments can help clients keep pace with the body’s natural ageing process.
When will I see results and how long will they last?
You may see some initial lift, but the ultimate results will take place over 2 – 3 months as the growth of new collagen and elastin replaces old tissue targeted by the treatment. A single Ultherapy® treatment can give a lasting effect for over a year in some people and we are happy to advise you on the likely outcomes for you as part of your free initial consultation.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically, most clients will see benefits after a single treatment. However, additional benefit can be achieved with more treatments if desired.
