WHAT IS Ultracel-skin-tightening
Ultracel is the next generation, multi-platform device, offering a completely needle and surgery free non-surgical face lift 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
It is clinically proven to stimulate collagen and tighten sagging tissues, and is ideal for anyone wanting to lift and define the jaw line, or lift the eyebrows that drop with age, without needles and without surgery. It works on the same layer of the face as surgeons do when doing a face lift, known as the SMAS layer, and gives your skin fresh, radiant, smooth look and offers lifting results previously only achieved by a surgical facelift.
The technology combines focused ultrasound and greatly differs to HIFU found in beauty salons – think Miele or Dyson hoover compared to a cheap £10 hoover: the output is potent, effective, quick and painless and creates real change. Ultracel is different in that in the same treatment session you have 2 treatments: the Ultrasound and the radiofrequency in one, meaning ultimate lifting, tightening, and collagen formation. The medical grade microneedling is designed to target all layers of skin and can also be performed with gridfractional radiofrequency to treat acne scars, enlarged pores and crepey wrinkley 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.
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 of the skin
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 dropped eyebrows.
Thermal deep tissue treatments stimulate the growth of new healthy collagen for
prolonged and more intensive tightening.
The medical grade microneedling component of the treatment with the radiofrequency, utilises 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, alonside subscision 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.
What will ULTRAcel do for me?
ULTRAcel is the ultimate treatment for working on and within your skin
producing exceptional results with little or no downtime. ULTRAcel can help to:

- Restore a youthful & smoother appearance.
- Diminish large pores.
- Treat acne & acne scarring.
Additionally it works on a layer of the tissue that is generally only improved by
surgery, the SMAS (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System).
Side effects are rare, have a chat with your doctor if you have any concerns.
Approx 12-18 months
None to minimal discomfort
When will I see results?
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 even after the first treatment, results from the treatment
will continue to improve for up to six months, increasing with additional
How many treatments will I need?
Treatments are specific to you and your Medical Professional will discuss what it
is you would like to achieve and how many treatments it will take for you to reach
your goal. Most patients generally take between 1-3 treatments.
It is recommended to use a medically proven skin care regime such as Obagi.
Always use a sunscreen (a minimum of SPF30) to avoid sun damage.
How long before I can return to normal activities?
With GFR and FUS you can return to your normal activities immediately with
minimal to no downtime. The FRM treatment may take between 3 hours and 3
days before normal activities are resumed.
