Ulthera is the world’s first Ultrasound face-lifting technology. Offering one of the best non-surgical facelifts in Sydney, Ashbrooke Cosmetic Surgery uses Ulthera, which relies on high intensity ultrasound to non-invasively contract facial skin and stimulate collagen growth.
Ultherapy in Australia is growing in popularity, distributing focused ultrasound energy to the foundational layers of the skin. Reaching the same areas concentrated on by surgeons during a surgical facelift. The ultrasound energy works deep below skin without disrupting the skin surface. The ultrasound energy triggers the body’s natural response to stimulate the growth of fresh new collagen restore weak collagen. A gradual tightening occurs ultimately resulting in a natural lift and conditioning of the skin over time.

Ultherapy is a breakthrough procedure that uses medical ultrasound for a non-surgical facelift. Ultherapy works deep below the surface “without harming the outer layer of skin” for dramatic and long-lasting benefits of facial firming, skin tightening and super-lifting.
Improvements around the eyes include lifting of the brow line to reduce droopiness on the eyelids, smoothing of crows feet, and a more open, refreshed look to the eyes in general.
Sagging skin on the cheeks can be tightened and lifted, which in turn can improve folds from the nose to mouth, folds from the mouth to jaw, and drooping corners of the mouth. A more defined jawline and overall improvements in skin texture and evenness of colour can be additional benefits.
As with other ultrasound procedures, a smooth applicator placed upon your skin projects an image onto a screen.
This same applicator is then used to deliver low levels of focused heat at just the right depth below the skin to achieve a positive effect, leaving the surface of your skin undisturbed.
Your skin’s response to the energy is to stimulate the growth of new collagen over time. A gradual tightening occurs, ultimately resulting in a natural lift and conditioning of the skin over time.
Of course, your skin will continue its natural aging process, so you may need to schedule additional treatments over time to maintain your results. Some patients may want to repeat their treatments every year; others may want to repeat the treatment after a longer interval. The doctor will be able to help you make that decision during your follow-ups.
Ultherapy is the only skin rejuvenation procedure that uses ultrasound to image and treat the skin. The ability to utilize an established technology — to both see below the skin and then treat it with great precision — helps ensure both safety and satisfying results.
Most patients will see good results after 1-2 treatments. This will be determined by your doctor. In addition, your doctor will schedule follow-up visits to take photographs and track your progress.
Ultherapy is a very comfortable procedure. No injection anaesthesia is required. Patients may feel a prickling or warm sensation beneath the skin when the ultrasound energy is being delivered into the tissue. This is how Ultherapy lifts and tightens the skin from deep within, delivering dramatic and long lasting facial lifting effects.
Ulthera can be done on any part of your face including the forehead, the temples, the mid and lower face, jaw line and the neck is also treated. The most popular treatment is the full face and neck treatment which gives patients the maximal visible benefits. During your consultation, your doctor can tailor a treatment plan for you.
Ultherapy takes 30 minutes. You are able to return to your normal activities right away, and you can put on makeup if needed. Your skin may appear a bit flushed immediately after the treatment, but any redness should disappear in a matter of hours.
Ulthera is safe for all skin types. Any patient who has experienced some sagging of their skin will benefit from this treatment. It is likely that if your sagging is severe, you may need a repeat treatment for optimal results. A good candidate is someone with skin that has ‘relaxed’ to the point of looking less firm. A lowered brow line or sagging skin on the eyelids, for instance, is often the first sign of “maturing” skin. The doctors will evaluate if you are an appropriate candidate at the time of your consultation.
