NEW GROUNDBREAKING ULTRASOUND HIFU TECHNOLOGIES

The Ultralift is a new breakthrough which is part of the New International Wave in Ultrasound Aesthetic Technologies.  This revolutionary new Ultrasound Facelifting Treatment that is available exclusively in Ireland at Body Benefits Clinic.

 

 

 

 

The Ultralift is a revolutionary, no-downtime facelifting technology, using the power of gentle yet powerful ultrasound, to lift not only the skin, but also the deep muscle layer (known as the SMAS layer) underneath, which previously was only reached by surgical facelifts.  The Ultralift treatment uses the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound focusing the energy to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin, including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift, without disturbing the surface of the skin.  The Ultralift treatment will stimulate the growth of new collagen over time, to gradually strengthen and tone your skin from within.  During the Ultralift treatment, warm pulses of ultrasound energy are delivered deep under the skin,  causing the muscle layer to contract.  At the same time, the gentle heat also encourages the healthy, natural process of rejuvenation, stimulating your skin to produce its own fresh new collagen, making skin firmer, brighter, tighter and mores elastic.  In less than an hour you can go about your day after a single Ultralift procedure to tighter, firmer, better fitting skin.  You may notice a short-term “boost” but the natural process of creating new, more elastic collagen builds over time.

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is Ultralift?

The Ultralift is an non-surgical face, neck and body treatment that uses ultrasound to actually lift and tone loose skin without any downtime.

What is unique about the ultralift procedure?

The Ultralift is the only treatment that can specifically target the deep foundation below the skin that is addressed in cosmetic surgery without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.

What areas can be treated with Ultralift?

The Ultralift is perfect for tightening and lifting the skin on the neck,  under the chin, the jawline, the brow, around the eyes, and treating wrinkling and sagging on the décolletage.  Body Areas that can be treated and improved include chest, arms (bingo wings), abdomen, flanks, thighs, knees and lower legs.

Is the Ultralift surgery?

No.  The Ultralift addresses the skin and the support layer below it, but it does not entail cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin – hence there is no downtime after the procedure.

Can The Ultralift replace a face lift?

The Ultralift is not a “facelift”.  It is an uplift.  While it is not a replacement for surgery, it is a viable option for those not ready for a facelift or those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.

How is the Ultralift different from  lasers and Radiofrequency?

Lasers and Radio Frequency typically address issues with the superficial layers of the skine (e.g. fine lines, wrinkles,  pigment changes).  The Ultralift addresses the deep skin layer and the foundational muscle layer addressed in cosmetics surgery that lift and lends support to the skin.  Therefore, the three technologies are very compatible as they treat different skin problems.

Is the Ultralift safe?

The procedure has been cleared by the U.S. FDA after demonstrating safety in clinical studies, and tens of thousands of treatments have been performed worldwide without any significant adverse events.  In addition, ultrasound energy as a proven track record,  with the use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years, including pregnancy scans.

Who is a good candidate for the Ultralift?

A good candidate for the Ultralift is someone with skin that has “relaxed” to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm.  A lower brow line or sagging skin on the eyelids, for instance, is often the first sign of “maturing” skin.  While the Ultralift is not a replacement for surgery,  there are many people who want some lifting but are not ready for surgery,  either mentally, financially or logistically.
