Ultherapy is a safe, non-surgical ultrasound treatment that tightens skin on the face and neck. It uses the body's own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift skin on the eyebrow, under the chin and on the neck, and smooth lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
Ultherapy uses time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally without surgery.
This helps to achieve a fresher, more youthful look by lifting the skin on the neck, under the chin, and on the brow, as well as improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolleté.
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. During the treatment, ultrasound energy will be delivered using the Ulthera® System. Depending on where you are treated, the procedure can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours.
The safety and efficacy of Ultherapy® have been established through clinical studies and over 800,000 treatments performed worldwide and has received the European CE mark for non-invasive dermatological sculpting and lifting of the upper face, lower face, neck and décolleté.
Following an Ultherapy® treatment at Cadogan Clinic, there is no downtime. After your procedure, you can resume your normal activities immediately without having to follow any special post-treatment measures.
Some patients see an immediate result, but you should expect to see results appear over 2-3 months or even up to 6 months post-treatment. You will be left with tighter, more youthful-looking skin. A facelift without the surgery.

Whilst lasers usually work on the more superficial layers of skin for issues such as lines and wrinkles or pigmentation, Ulthera works on the skin’s deeper layers to lift and remodel the skin. As the two work on different layers of the skin, it is possible to combine the two for the best skin tightening laser treatment.
This treatment is often called a ‘non-surgical facelift’ but our consultants refer to Ulthera treatment as more of an uplift than a facelift. However, it is a great alternative for those not quite ready for the surgical option, or perhaps those who have had surgery and wish to maintain the effects.
There is no down time required following your Ulthera treatment and you can go straight back to your daily activities, though you may choose to return home if you have taken a sedative for the treatment. There are very few Ulthera side effects but mild to moderate redness and sometimes swelling is completely normal and soon subsides.
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 kick starts 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.
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 Ulthera can be seen at between 6-8 months following your treatment.
This can vary from patient to patient, and there can be discomfort whilst undergoing an Ulthera 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!
Ulthera 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.
Ulthera 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. Ulthera stimulates collagen production in the skin’s deeper layers 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.
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.
The Ulthera 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. Although side effects of Ulthera may include redness, minor swelling and tenderness- this is normal and will subside within a few hours.
Following an Ulthera treatment at Cadogan Clinic 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.
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.
