The results from these treatments are variable, depending on the original quality of the skin and degree of damage to be treated. The skin will begin to feel smoother and tighter after the first treatment. Results from the treatment will continue to improve for up to six months, increasing with additional treatments.
What is Ultracel Skin Tightening Facelift?
Ultracel offers a completely needle-free non-surgical facelift and body skin tightening and lifting, as well as addressing fine lines and wrinkles.
ULTRAcel delivers 3 different modalities through one very clever system; Grid Fractional Radio frequency (GFR), Fractional Radio frequency Microneedling (FRM) and High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (FUS). These modalities are used in combination or as stand-alone treatments. ULTRAcel achieves a combination of short and long term results with minimal or no downtime.
It is clinically proven to stimulate collagen and tighten sagging tissues, and is ideal for anyone wanting to lift and define the jawline, or lift the eyebrows that drop with age, without needles and without surgery. ULTRAcel works on the SMAS layer, giving your skin a fresh, radiant, smooth look and lifting results previously only achievable by a surgical facelift.
In the same treatment session you will receive two treatments – the Ultrasound and the radiofrequency – in one. This means ultimate lifting, tightening, and collagen formation. The medical grade micro needling is designed to target all layers of skin and can also be performed with grid fractional radiofrequency to treat acne scars, enlarged pores and crepey wrinkled skin on the eyes, neck and decolletage. Treatments suit individual patient needs and immediate, long lasting results, with no to minimal downtime. The skin will begin to feel smoother and tighter after the first treatment and results will continue to improve for up to six months, increasing with additional treatments.
We usually recommend 1-2 treatments depending on the extent of saggy skin or heavy jowls, and between 1-3 sessions if there is acne scarring.
ULTRAcel is a fantastic treatment to treat all anti-aging concerns – from textured, dull skin to deep wrinkles and loss of laxity. It is the complete facelift.
How it Works
The radio frequency delivers heat, which affects collagen in the deeper layers of the skin. This causes deep structures of the skin to tighten, and, over time, new and remodelled collagen is produced. Ultrasound waves are then beamed to a controlled targeted depth where thermal heat energy tightens and contracts underlying tissue, right down to the muscle layer. You start to see an immediate lift to the jowls, jawline and an eyebrow lift to refresh saggy eyebrows. Thermal deep tissue treatments stimulate the growth of new healthy collagen for prolonged and more intensive tightening. The medical grade micro needling component of the treatment with the radiofrequency uses unique technology to permanently break down scarring, unravelling old scarred tissue and causing new collagen to form in its place. This is the best treatment for acne scars, alongside subcision and skinboosters for ultimate hydration and smoothing. The sublative radiofrequency can be used as a standalone treatment to banish and smooth wrinkles around the under eye area and tighten enlarged pores.
