Tired of seeing those early jowls in the mirror?
Wanting a lift to prevent things slipping further?
or need a brow lift but don't want surgery?
Ultherapy is a no needle treatment that tightens and lifts using focused heat energy. The energy tightens the fibrous layer over the muscle and caused areas of the face to tighten. A second application causes the skin to tighten as well.
The treatment isn't instant but develops over 3 months. Its a one off treatment but as you age needs to be repeated every1 to 2 years. This is a maintenance treatment that keeps the tissue tight and full of collagen, adding to your collagen bank, that will help you look younger for longer.
This treatment has not been available in Bromley before and is a favourite on Harley Street and with celebrities.
How does Ultherapy Work?
Ultherapy uses ultrasound guided heat that bypasses the skin to target collagen layers deep in the face. By heating old collagen, new collagen growth is encouraged, causing a tightening and lifting of the skin.
Does Ultherapy hurt?
The tissues are heated to between 60 and 70 degrees celsius, this gets hot and scratchy, but is bearable. Dr Kim can advise pain relief if you think you may need this. Most patients find the treatment comfortable and even fall asleep! Others require a small amount of pain relief.
How soon will I see results?
Results will become apparent from 3 months onwards. The results take time to build as collagen growth is not quick and takes up to 6 weeks to get started. You are also loosing collagen daily, so you should plan to prevent further loss with sunscreen, staying out of the sun and using medical grade skincare.
Why do I need another treatment?
The treatment will tighten the fibrous band and give you a lift but as time goes by you age and the band loosens again, that is why we need to keep maintaining these areas with more treatment. Collagen is lost form the tissues from as early as our early twenties, we need to continually be preserving and trying to build collagen into the tissues.
How expensive is it?
Treatments like the brow lift start from £400. Book a consultation with Dr Booysen and she can advise you which areas would benefit you. Some areas like the jowls may require more treatment. Patients with significant laxity may also require more than one treatment to achieve the results they desire.
What areas can be treated?
Heavy brows, Jowls, Double chins, under eyes, crows feet, necks and décolletage.
Ultherapy is available in Beckenham and Bromley.
