As the sun begins to shine down in beautiful Surrey and the surrounding areas, we are well and truly getting into the spirit of summer.
Long, warm days filled with BBQs and happy memories stretch ahead, but after the harsh winter that we are slowly moving away from, your skin may be in need of some lovely revitalisation.
We have the perfect treatment to fulfill just this and can help get your skin ready for a summer to remember.
WHAT IS ULTHERAPY?
Ultherapy is an innovative, non-invasive facelift treatment that is available here at Health & Aesthetics that is often referred to as the ‘lunchtime lift’, due to the speed of the treatment and the minimal recovery time required.
It is the only FDA approved procedure that is non-invasive and targets skin around the brow, chin, neck and eyes, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and tightening skin in the process.
Ultrasound energy is used to deliver collagen-boosting effects and alleviate the signs of ageing that we all eventually have to confront.
During the procedure, ultrasound energy is targeted at the desired area and boosts the skin’s natural collagen production, stimulating the skin and creating a more youthful look.
DOES IT REALLY WORK?
As is common with all cosmetic procedures, no two results are ever the same – no two humans are exactly the same, so why would we expect their results to be?
Our unique identities are a cause for celebration, and we are proud to present all of the fantastic results that we have already achieved here at Health & Aesthetics.
The treatment itself takes between 30 and 90 minutes depending on the area that is being treated, with absolutely no downtime, meaning that you can genuinely experience the treatment on your lunch break!
Results take 6 months to develop; many patients only require one treatment too, providing a cost-effective, non-invasive and effective treatment with minimal effort.
DOES IT HURT?
Due to the nature of the non-invasive treatment, pain is kept to a minimum throughout the entire procedure.
Previous patients have described the feeling to that of mild discomfort, but pain relief is given before the treatment to ensure that you are completely comfortable throughout.
There is no aftercare necessary with Ultherapy, although some patients do experience mild swelling and tenderness. Strenuous exercise and activities should be avoided in these cases, however normal activity can be resumed after 24 hours.
IS ULTHERAPY SAFE?
Ultrasound has been successfully used across medical fields for over 50 years, and both medical and clinical studies have proven it to be safe and effective.
As previously mentioned, Ultherapy is the only FDA approved procedure that lifts and tightens the skin. It does so by targeting the right tissue depth and delivering energy deep within the skin.
This then triggers the skins natural regenerative response producing fresh collagen and rewards your skin with a new lease of life.
Unfortunately, due to the success of Ultherapy, there are now several copy devices on the market which do not have the desirable FDA certification. This means that these treatments are not regulated or checked and have the potential to create detrimental long-term damage.
HOW LONG DOES ULTHERAPY LAST?
Results with Ultherapy vary from patient to patient, however, typical results last around 18 – 24 months.
During this course of time, we recommend maintenance treatments to encourage the collagen to continue regenerating, yet modern research could lead to even longer lasting results in years to come.
WHO BENEFITS FROM ULTHERAPY?
At Health & Aesthetics, all of our procedures are undertaken after an initial expert consultation, in which we discuss your desired outcomes and how we can achieve the results of your dreams.
As is common with many cosmetic procedures, some treatments are better suited for different individuals due to an array of various factors.
However, Ultherapy is unique in the fact that all skin types will benefit from the treatment, with remarkable results already being achieved here in Surrey.
Anyone who is unhappy with sagging skin in problem areas, such as the jawline, jowls, eyes, lips and chest can benefit from the procedure.
The treatment is recommended for those who are in their late thirties and early forties with a mild to moderate degree of skin laxity; that being said, we have treated patients from a wider age range, depending on suitability.
Should we believe that the patient might benefit more from a surgical treatment, this will be discussed at the consultation.
