Ultherapy Skin Tightening Clinic in Brisbane
What is Ultherapy ?
Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that lifts the neck, chin and brow, and improves lines and wrinkles on the upper chest. Through ultrasound imaging with Ultherapy, energy is delivered precisely to the place where it will benefit you most—for natural-looking results that improve over time.
Ultherapy relies on ultrasound therapy to go deeper than other non-invasive treatments for collagen stimulation. And it leverages traditional ultrasound imaging so Ultherapy providers can see the layers of tissue they are treating. This ensures the treatment energy is delivered to where it benefits you most.
Ultherapy is FDA-cleared to non-invasively lift skin on the neck, under the chin, and under the eyes—and also improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage!
For those who are not ready for a surgical facelift, Ultherapy provides proven results in a single treatment for most patients. Learn how to treat your loose skin without surgery, without impacting the surface of your skin.

How long does a treatment take?
The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan.
Will I need to take time off?
After an Ultherapy® procedure, you can resume your normal activities immediately without having to follow any special post-treatment measures unless otherwise advised by your doctor.
When will I see results? | How long will they last?
The ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months, as tired collagen is replaced by the growth of new collagen.
As skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the natural ageing process.
What does the treatment feel like?
As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. Your practitioner will take measures to make the experience as pleasant as possible, and most patients leave comfortable and excited about the results to come.
Is Ultherapy" safe?
No treatment procedure is safe; however, no serious adverse events were observed during the clinical study evaluation of the Ulthera® System. Ultrasound energy has been used in the medical field for more than 50 years. In addition, every Ultherapy® practitioner receives extensive procedural training and tools, so you can feel confident in choosing Ultherapy® in conjunction with your treating physician.
You may experience some redness for a few hours following the procedure. It is not uncommon to experience slight swelling for a few days, or tingling/ tenderness to the touch for a few weeks after the procedure, but these are usually mild and temporary in nature. There is the possibility for other less common post-procedural effects, such as temporary small areas of bruising or numbness, which your physician will review with you. IF SYMPTOMS PERSIST SEE YOUR DOCTOR/HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONAL.
