Ultrasound Skin Tightening

Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment - Hong Kong

  • The ONLY non-surgical medical device USFDA approved for face lifting, neck lifting and skin tightening
  • Ideal for mild to moderate skin laxity and those who do not want/need surgery-‘a non-surgical facelift’
  • NO downtime
  • Non-invasive ultrasound technology is safe, used in medicine for decades
  • Intense Focused Ultrasound (IFUS) delivers heat deeply under and into the skin leading to collagen stimulation at multiple levels
Ultherapy treatments - Intense Focused Ultrasound (IFUS)
  • Causes new collagen formation, improving the skin from the inside out, resulting in face lifting and tightening
  • Specifically targets the Superficial Muscular-Aponeurotic System (SMAS) layer (the same deep layer used in surgical facelifts)
  • IFUS sends heat below the skin surface leaving the epidermis unaffected, improving safety for all skin types, especially darker skin 
  • Ultrasound imaging allows us to accurately visualise tissue layers during treatment and ensures precise placement of energy for maximum benefit and safety

What areas can be treated?

  • Brow, lateral orbit and infraorbital
  • Cheek and jowls
  • Upper and lower neck
  • Chest and décolletage (off label)
  • Upper arm / Abdomen (off label)

What else do I need to know?

  • IFUS uses ultrasound, a tried and tested, safe technology
  • Only 1 treatment is normally required
  • Each treatment session lasts around 30-60 minutes, depending on the area treated
  • Results can be seen instantly, further improvement is gradually seen over the next 2-3 months
  • There is NO downtime, normal activities can be resumed immediately after
  • Face lifting usually lasts for a year or more, yearly treatments may slow down the rate of skin aging
  • Mild discomfort, pain and a heating sensation can be felt during treatment. Medication can be given to reduce the discomfort
  • Swelling and redness of the skin can sometimes be seen after treatment. This usually resolves in 1-2 hours
  • Other less common side effects can include: bruising, superficial wheals, headache, tingling and numbness. These usually resolve in a few days to weeks
