Ultherapy - High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU face lifting)

Ultherapy is a non-invasive skin tightening and rejuvenation procedure that has become extremely popular in aesthetic medicine and as new and exciting treatment modalities continue to evolve we can see patients achieving excellent outcomes and in many cases circumventing the need for traditional cosmetic surgery.

Since its inception several years ago, Ultherapy or High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) has proven itself as an impressive aesthetic device achieving significant skin tightening and lifting effects in the face, neck and various body regions.

Skin Est has the latest innovative technology for Ultherapy HIFU skin tightening available in Sydney. The device is state of the Art technology from Italy and gives the advantage of no pain, no downtime and no risk of damaging delicate tissue. We pride ourselves in keeping up to date with the safest and most effective modalities and techniques to keep you looking fresh and young.

The exciting new concept works without damaging the skin and its surrounding tissues.  Ultherapy is a high intensity focused ultrasound that is transferred into deep structures such as the deep dermis, boundary layer of the deep dermis and subcutaneous fat, fibrous tissues of subcutaneous fat, and fascia.  Once the areas have been treated the healing process takes place in these deep dermal and fascia layers for several months and a gradual lifting and tightening effect can be achieved.

How Many Treatments are Necessary?

The main advantages of Ultherapy HIFU are that it allows the clinician to perform a non-invasive face-lift without damaging the epidermis. Exceptional results are achieved with only one treatment however a second treatment some months after the first is sometimes desirable.

With Ultherapy there’s no downtime, no foreign substances, no radical change, just a healthy revive on the inside for a natural, noticeable effect on the outside.

You can go about your day after a single 30-90 minute procedure. You may notice a short-term “boost” but the natural process of creating new, more elastic collagen builds over time—much like the effect that exercise has on building muscle (but without the multiple workouts!).

How It Works

Ultherapy lifts and tightens skin for a non-surgical face and neck lift. It is a new type of non-surgical, non- invasive procedure and with our new state of the art technology far more comfortable for the client than previous modalities.
Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound and the face’s own natural healing process to lift, tone and tighten loose skin on the brow, neck, under the chin, and even the chest and body areas.
