There’s an abundance of collagen and elastin in your early years, but by the age of 20 your collagen and elastin starts to break down. We start producing less new collagen which leaves us with visible signs of ageing. By targeting the root cause of ageing directly, we can naturally lift and tighten, while also building new collagen to restore the youthful glow to your skin.
Ultherapy® goes deeper than other non-invasive treatments, reaching the deeper skin layer where collagen loss usually starts.
TGA and FDA approved, non-invasive treatment
Ultherapy® works by utilising a micro-focused ultrasound to stimulate layers within your skin. By generating a thermal effect, this process jumps starts your body's natural ability to create new collagen for a firming and toning result.
Unlike lasers, radio frequency, and surgery, Ultherapy® bypasses the surface of your skin, using focused imaging, to target just the right amount at the right depths and the right temperature for optimal precision.
At MediDermic, our clinicians pride themselves on reliable and safe Ultherapy® treatments, and have served Melbourne and neighbouring communities for years. Our staff are highly qualified and trained to conduct Ultherapy® treatments with trusted, safe, and recognised medical-grade equipment.
To address the problems of ageing and drooping skin from the ground up, we conduct an in-depth skin assessment and design a custom skin tightening and lifting treatment regimen – tailored to your skin type and needs. With results lasting up to a full year or more, Ultherapy® treatments at our Melbourne practice is a great alternative for people with busy schedules.
Our dermal clinicians start with a skin examination prior to treatment, to develop a therapeutic regimen that’s tailored to your skin types, needs, and skin condition. After the preliminary assessment, you’ll begin with an Ultherapy® session based on the treatment plan that was created for you. Finally, we’ll continue to monitor your health and progress, post treatment, to modify the therapy as needed.
Ultherapy® has been used safely in over 1 million treatments worldwide. Ultrasound energy is time tested and has been safely used for more than 50 years.
MediDermic is an authorised Ultherapy® provider and receives procedural training.
The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated.
A face and neck procedure typically takes 60 – 90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 40 minutes.
With Ultherapy®, there is no downtime. After your procedure, you can resume normal activities immediately without having to follow any special post-treatment measures.
You’ll see results immediately after the treatment. The face will feel fresh and tight.
However, the full result can gradually be seen over a period of 2 – 3 months. Typically, you can expect to see continued improvements for up to 6 months. Depending on your condition and lifestyle, the results can last for up to 1 – 2 years.
The skin might appear flushed at first but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are temporary in nature.
Other less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin. As with any medical procedure, there is the possibility for other rare effects, which your clinician will review with you.
Ultherapy® treats the deep foundational layer of skin – the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS), the same layer that is addressed in cosmetic surgery. However, the results will not be as dramatic as a surgical facelift.
Ultherapy® is a great alternative to surgery, especially for those not ready for surgery or for patients looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
The treatment’s effectiveness lies in its ability to target deep tissue to stimulate natural collagen production. As a result, you can experience:
All in all, it’s both a safe and convenient solution for skin rejuvenation. It’s minimally invasive, has a quick recovery time, and provides natural and long-lasting results to improve various aspects of your skin’s appearance.
Unlike a facelift, Ultherapy® doesn’t involve surgery. With Ultherapy®, you won’t have to worry about bruising or infections since it naturally lifts and tightens the skin.
You’ll witness noticeable results much faster than other conventional treatments. We recommend Ultherapy® in Melbourne for those who aren’t yet ready for surgery or want to enhance their collagen production after a surgical lift.
An ideal candidate for Ultherapy® could be someone who has mild to moderate sagging along the face and neck. However, results may vary based on several factors.
We suggest visiting our practice so our dermal clinicians can best determine whether you’re the ideal candidate.
