Professional Ultherapy® Face and Neck Lift
Ultherapy® Treatments central London
Ultherapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tighten and tone loose skin on the jowls, neck, under the chin, eyebrows and chest area. This is a swift treatment with no recovery time and will tighten and stimulate the skin from within.
What is Ultherapy®?
The Gold Standard in skin tightening technology – Ultherapy® is the latest innovation in non-surgical aesthetics; a new, clinically-backed ultrasound-guided energy treatment that boosts your body’s natural elastin and collagen.
Ultherapy® uses ultrasound to create a fresher, more youthful facial 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. It is often chosen as a precursor or alternative to face or neck lift surgery or employed to maintain results post-surgery.
Results are visible after just one treatment. Our most long-lasting treatment option of its kind, Ultherapy® need only be refreshed every 12 months.
What Skin Areas and Conditions Can be Treated?
Ultherapy can be used to treat sagging skin, skin laxity issues, the dreaded ‘turkey neck’, drooping eyelids, banana roll fat, sagging buttocks and lines and wrinkles on your décolletage, giving you a natural lift and leaving you looking refreshed. It has been FDA-approved to treat the face, neck and décolletage area, with truly outstanding results when it comes to non-surgical facelifts.
Ultherapy can be used for:
- Forehead smoothing and tightening
- Lifting Sunken Brows
- Correcting cheek sagging
- Jawline and Jowl Tightening
- Neck laxity / sagginess
- Non-surgical all over face-lift
- Abdominal skin laxity
What does it involve?
Ultherapy incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging to allow the aesthetic specialist to see the various layers of tissue and isolate the deep foundational layers to be treated. Ultrasound energy is then precisely delivered to where to boost collagen production in the target area. The surface of the skin itself is not cut or disrupted.
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.
Following an Ultherapy treatment at Beauty & Melody, 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.

*results may vary from person to person
If your skin is showing the effects of time and gravity and appears less firm, you are a good candidate for Ultherapy. It may be that you have sagging skin on the neck or jowl area.
This treatment also gets great skin tightening reviews for those who want to stay ahead in maintaining their youthful looks, or those who have had cosmetic surgery and want to prolong the effects.
Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound energy below the skin’s surface to stimulate the body’s creation of new collagen. This causes the skin to lift and become more toned and tight after a few weeks, making it the best skin tightening procedure.
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. Ultherapy at Beauty & Melody 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.
Ultherapy is not a surgical procedure despite often being compared to a facelift and does not require general anaesthetic nor any incisions to the skin.
Whilst lasers usually work on the more superficial layers of skin for issues such as lines and wrinkles or pigmentation, Ultherapy 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 Ultherapy 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.
Following your initial consultation, when you come in for your face tightening treatment your practitioner will cleanse the area, apply the 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.
This can vary from patient to patient, and there can be discomfort whilst undergoing an Ultherapy treatment. This is only temporary and is an indicator that the energy is being delivered and collagen stimulation has started. At Beauty & Melody, 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.
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 Ultherapy can be seen between 6-8 months following your treatment.
There is no downtime required following your Ultherapy 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 Ultherapy side effects but mild to moderate redness and sometimes swelling is completely normal and soon subsides.
Following an Ultherapy treatment at Beauty & Melody, 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.
The safety and efficacy of Ultherapy have been established through clinical studies and over 800,000 treatments performed worldwide, and it has received the European CE mark for non-invasive dermatological sculpting and lifting of the upper face, lower face, neck and décolleté.
The Ultherapy 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 Ultherapy may include redness, minor swelling and tenderness, this is normal and will subside within a few hours.
Ultherapy 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. Ultherapy 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.
