Some patients experience minor flushing or redness, including welts, for a few hours after the procedure. Effect on skin surface – Ultherapy heats tissue at specific depths under the skin surface and has no effect on the superficial layers at all.
This is followed by a soothing, cooling sensation that will keep your skin cool and protected while also minimising any discomfort. Our skin treatment packages target specific skin conditions to have you walking out looking chin sculpting and feeling your best. For optimum results, we recommend 6 treatments at fortnightly or monthly intervals. Initial consultations with Dr Csilla are $200, which is redeemed on the subsequent cost of treatment.
Just about any area that needs skin tightening can be suitable for Vaser Skin Tightening. This heat encourages collagen production; and therefore results in skin tightening in that area.
The benefits of removing excess skin however, generally outweigh this downside to surgical lifts. However, to accomplish any real, drastic change, technological intervention is required.
Ultherapy causes heating of the tissueat a temperature range proven to be optimal for stimulating new collagen production (60-70℃). There is initial thermal coagulation and denaturation of weak collagen, and contraction of collagen fibrils, whereby an immediate tightening effect may be visible. Synthesis of new collagen progressively increases over the next 3-6 months resulting in subtle, natural looking skin tightening and lifting.
I felt safe in light of the current pandemic and staff were accommodating and friendly. Results are immediate making the treatment ideal if you need quick results for an upcoming important event, occasion or holiday. It is recommended for the face, loose tummy, sagging upper arms or thighs. An accurate quote will be given to you during your initial consultation and assessment. Mild, temporary tingling or tenderness might persist for a few weeks after the procedure. You can return to normal activities immediately after Ultherapy treatment, and there is no specific aftercare needed. Since the two technologies often treat different types of skin problems they can frequently be used together.
This causes excess skin to dry superficially creating tiny brown, crusty carbon dots which slough off like a scab would within 5-8 days post procedure. This treatment is excellent for tightening of the face, neck, under the eyes and the stomach. Perfect for those who are in good health and exercise regularly, but need some help to tighten the skin that becomes lax with age and body changes. Pregnancy is a major cause of loose skin as the skin has been stretched beyond its normal elasticity. Aging, extreme weight loss, genetics and long-term exposure to UV rays are also major factors in causing the loss of elasticity in skin.
Thermage skin tightening treatments use radio frequency technology to heat the deep, collagen-rich layers of your skin. This heat helps to remodel your existing collagen and encourages new collagen growth, a process called neocollagenesis. It is this new collagen that makes the skin appear firmer, tighter and improves the overall texture of the skin. Treatments take approximately 90 minutes, depending on which area of the body is being treated. Ultherapy is a non-surgical skin tightening technique that uses micro-focused ultrasound energy to produce controlled heating of collagen both within the skin and in the layers beneath the skin. It penetrates significantly deeper than lasers do (up to 4.5mm) and can be precisely focused in these deeper layers without any adverse effects on the skin surface. Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure with American FDA approval proven to tighten and lift loose skin of the face, neck and chest.
Treatments can be performed on all skin types and on most body parts, including the face, neck, décolletage, eye contour, tummy, arms, knees and even the buttocks. The importance of preparation and aftercare is to ensure that you receive maximum results with minimal side effects to the treatments we offer.
This process works to smooth fine lines, wrinkles and improve the overall texture of the skin. Laser Skin Tightening can be used on any area where there is a loss of collagen.
It is important to determine what type of results you want and to have realistic expectations. So, if you are looking for drastic changes, invasive options will provide results more in line with your expectations. A consultation is recommended to discuss all your questions and concerns, and to establish which treatment option will suit you best. When the Thermage device is applied, you will feel a brief warming sensation to target those deep, collagen-rich layers of your skin.
RF causes volumetric heating, which also affects the superficial layers. Typically the benefits last for about 2 years, but this does vary between individuals. Some patients see an immediate result post-procedure due to collagen coagulation and contraction, however, this varies and may disappear over a few days. The new Ulthera® machine has a vastly improved comfort level compared to previous generation machines, and many patients are amazed at the difference.
The number of treatments is customised to each client and depends on the skin’s condition, age, genetic background, health status and lifestyle. Ultherapy complements all of the other anti-aging and beautifying procedures that we offer at Elysium Skin Center Brisbane. It is the only non-invasive technique that has the proven ability to lift and tighten loose skin on the face, neck and chest without any downtime. I particularly like the ability to now offer a subtle brow lift, jaw lift or neck lift to my patients who have already benefited from improved skin tone and texture. And to have a treatment for those patients keen to prevent future facial sag and droop.
The use of Skinstitut’s RF aftercare pack is recommended for the next 7 days. Skinstitut Gentle Cleanser, Enzymatic Micro Peel, Multi-Active Mist, Rejuvenate 15 & Age Defense SPF 50+. Temperature – Ultherapy heats collagen at specific depths to a range between 60-70℃, the optimal temperature for new collagen production.
