Ultherapy® is the only non-invasive procedure with American FDA approval proven to tighten and lift loose skin on the face, neck and chest. It’s also TGA registered in Australia for lifting and sculpting of skin.
That’s also the reason why Ultherapy Sydney is the most popular skin rejuvenation treatment.
Ultherapy uses micro-focused ultrasound energy to produce controlled heating of collagen within the deeper tissues at a depth of up to 4.5mm to lift and tighten loose skin. The safety and efficacy of Ultherapy have been established through clinical studies and over 1,000,000 treatments performed worldwide.
The Ultherapy® procedure deposits focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the foundational layers of the skin, including the deep dermis and the SMAS layer. These ultrasound waves are at the optimal temperature of 60-70 degrees for collagen regeneration, resulting in a clinically significant lift of tissue over 2-3 months.
- It is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure without very little downtime.
- Ultrasound energy is delivered between 1.5mm 3.0mm and 4.5mm into the skin’s dermis, ensuring tightening through the deepest layers of the skin.
- Ultherapy causes heating of the tissue at a temperature range proven to be optimal for stimulating new collagen production (60-70℃).
- Single treatment using a specialized device to provide long-lasting results.
- Initial tightening and lifting of the skin can be seen immediately after treatment.
What are the benefits of Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a skin-tightening laser therapy that uses micro-focused ultrasound waves in order to help stimulate collagen production to remove wrinkles, fine lines, and general facial sagging skin.
Using this therapy as opposed to conventional skin-tightening techniques brings an array of benefits such as:
Ultherapy is the only FDA approved non-surgical facelift treatment. Therefore you can proceed with treatment with a sense of safety and security without the need for cosmetic surgery.
By using ultrasound as its main form of energy transfer, no surgery is required to produce outstanding results.
Ultherapy can help with face lifting, improving facial lines, and restore wrinkles to their natural, smooth state.
Due to the lack of invasive surgery, patients can return to their normal activities right away after their treatment. There is some mild to moderate pain which can be alleviated by the use of cooling guns.
Ultrasound heat tackles deep skin tissues which rejuvenate dormant collagen and pause the anti-aging process, restoring skin texture and removing fine lines for a long period of time.
The results of Ulthera therapy occur gradually within the first month, meaning that your skin will naturally start to produce new collagen and rejuvenize to a more youthful appearance.
Typical procedures take around 60-90 minutes with very few side effects.
Am I the right candidate for the Ultherapy procedure?
Most men and women looking to lift and tighten the skin around their face and neck using minimally invasive treatments can undergo treatment with Ultherapy. A good candidate for this therapy is:
- In good mental and physical health
- Have a fair amount of skin elasticity and visible sagging skin
- Have concerns about lines and wrinkles and other aspects of the ageing process
- Have realistic expectations
How does Ultherapy work?
Ultherapy is a new and innovative approach to a facelift used as an alternative to traditional cosmetic medical treatments. Ulthera works by targeting micro-focused ultrasound energy waves to areas beneath the skin.
Layers of skin involved
The heat derived from Ultherapy technology is able to be adjusted to target various skin layers in order to generate collagen stimulation. The heat is targeted to three main layers:
- Superficial wrinkles
Treatment Timeline and Recovery
Ultherapy happens simultaneously on all of the above layers and can achieve both internal and external skin tightening without the use of invasive procedures. This can be visualized in three steps:
- Over time, various changes that occur as a result of the ageing process weaken our collagen links which lead to wrinkles.
- By delivering micro-focused ultrasound energy, Ultherapy heats this damaged skin tissue, causing it to regenerate its lost collagen.
- Over 2-3 months, you can expect to see improvements in your skin.
When it comes to recovery, you must understand the true potential of this treatment. As discussed, Ultherapy utilizes ultrasound waves to promote new collagen, as opposed to invasive needling.
Since no direct skin penetration is required, the downtime Ultherapy is associated with is minimal, with most people being able to return to their daily activities within 24 hours of treatment.
Ultherapy can drastically remove lines and wrinkles, and assist with face lifting without the need for surgery.

How long does Ultherapy last?
Typically, Ultherapy can last for up to two years.
What is the difference between Ultherapy and other non-surgical treatments?
The main difference between Ultherapy and other non-surgical treatments is that Ultherapy delivers very defined rays of micro-focused ultrasound energy of high temperature directly into the skin. The high temperature allows us to tackle various areas of the face with stronger clinical outcomes.
Will Ultherapy work on my skin?
Ultherapy works best on those who have mild to moderate skin laxity. Skin laxity means that you have visible sagging skin. If you are unsure if you are a good candidate, we suggest you check in with our expert team to identify whether treatment is suitable for you.
Does Ultherapy Hurt?
Ultherapy is not an invasive surgery and instead uses ultrasound waves as its main heat source. This means that Ultherapy should not hurt as the ultrasound waves tackle deeper areas of the skin.
