Ultherapy is a new non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tighten and tone loose skin on the jowls, neck, under the chin, eyebrows and chest area. This is a swift treatment with no recovery time and will tighten and stimulate the skin from within.

Relying on ultrasound therapy to deliver its collagen-boosting treatment, Ultherapy also incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging, which allows the aesthetic specialist to see the layers of tissue being treated to ensure the energy is delivered to where it will be most beneficial.

Following an Ultherapy treatment at the Cadogan Clinic, you will be left with tighter, more youthful-looking skin. It’s like a facelift without the surgery.

Collagen is a natural protein found in the body that gives skin its youthful appearance and plumps it up, keeping it firmed and toned. With ageing, collagen production begins to slow down and it loses its elasticity meaning skin starts to sag downwards. Ulthera at Cadogan Clinic kickstarts a repair by stimulating the body’s natural response to the heating of the tissues by the focused ultrasound energy, promoting collagen-building. The ideal facial skin tightening treatment.

If your skin is showing the effects of time and gravity, and appears less firm- you are a good candidate for Ulthera. It may be that you have sagging skin on the neck or jowl area,

Ulthera is not a surgical procedure despite often being compared to a facelift and does not require general anaesthetic nor any incisions to the skin.

Ultherapy in London is one of the best skin tightening treatments for the face and neck as it uses focused ultrasound energy below the skin’s surface to stimulate the body’s creation of new collagen. This ultrasound skin tightening causes the skin to lift and become more toned and tight after a few weeks.

This can vary from patient to patient, and there can be discomfort whilst undergoing an Ultherapy treatment. This is only temporary and is an indicator that the energy is being delivered and collagen stimulation has started. At Cadogan Clinic our expert consultants are experienced in pain management for this procedure and can offer advice for oral medications to make it more comfortable for you. After the procedure you will not feel any pain, and the results will be well worth it!

Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound energy below the skin’s surface to stimulate the body’s creation of new collagen.  This causes skin to lift and become more toned and tight after a few weeks, making it the best skin tightening procedure.

Following your initial consultation, when you come in for your face tightening treatment your practitioner will cleanse the area, apply ultrasound gel and use the Ulthera ultrasound imaging device to determine the correct area to deliver the energy. During the treatment, small amounts of energy deposited deep in the skin’s layers may be felt as the collagen-building process is initiated. A face and neck treatment may take between 60-90 minutes, and the décolleté or chest area will take only around 30 minutes.

Following an Ulthera treatment at Cadogan Cosmetics the skin might become flushed but this redness will subside within a couple of hours. Other side effects may include slight swelling, tingling or tenderness when the skin is touched but again this is temporary and normal. Less common effects after an Ultherapy treatment may include minor bruising or temporary numbness on small areas of skin. You will be able to resume normal activities within 24 hours and also due to strong pain relief which may be recommended for the treatment, it is best to book it when you do not have an event or meeting the next day.

The Ultherapy procedure has been approved by the FDA and used safely in over 250, 000 treatments across the world. For over 50 years ultrasound energy has been used safely in the medical field.

It may be that you would like to tighten your skin for a more youthful-looking appearance but are not ready for a surgical procedure such as a facelift or necklift. Though the results are more permanent, a surgical procedure requires longer down time for healing and may involve minimal scarring also. With a non-surgical skin tightening procedure such as Ulthera there is next to no downtime and results are long-lasting. Your practitioner will advise whether you are a good candidate for a non-surgical skin tightening treatment such as Ultherapy during your initial consultation.

Prices for Ultherapy at Cadogan Cosmetics will vary due to the area being treated but will be confirmed with you by your doctor following an initial consultation. Ulthera for the eyes starts at £700.

Ultherapy is one of the best skin tightening treatments on the market as it is FDA approved and unlike other lasers it uses ultrasound energy that allows it to bypass the surface of the skin and treat depths not matched by any other non-invasive machine. Ultherapy stimulates collagen production in the skin’s which results in a significant lift of tissue. Other lasers use light energy which does not reach deeper skin layers so can only treat superficial skin.

After around 3-8 weeks you will start to see an improvement in your skin tone and after a further few months any sagging will be lessened and skin elasticity increased. Optimum results for Ultherapy can be seen at between 6-8 months following your treatment.

A non-surgical facelift refers to a treatment such as Ultherapy which lifts, tightens and tones the skin for a youthful-looking appearance without involving any surgery, incisions or general anaesthetic. Similarly to a tradition facelift, this treatment will lift and sharpen the jowl area and jaw line, lift the brow and hide excess skin on the upper eyelids.

Ultherapy, sometimes known as a non-surgical facelift, is a safe, non-surgical ultrasound treatment which counteracts the ageing effects of time and gravity on the skin.  This skin tightening treatment uses the body’s regenerative process to gradually lift skin on the eyebrow, chin, neck and décolletage areas so it is the perfect solution for jowls, ageing eyes and sagging skin.

We use a variant of the general anaesthesia technique called TIVA (Total Intravenous Anaesthesia) that is delivered by our team of top anaesthetists. Intravenous delivery enables our anaesthetist team to monitor anaesthetic depth more closely via specialized computers to maintain an optimal level of anaesthesia. This means you will wake up feeling much better than with traditional alternatives and ready to go home shortly after.
