Ultherapy Ultrasound Skin Tightening


The word Ultherapy® is a combination of the words “Ultrasound” and “Therapy”. Ulthera® is a non-invasive treatment that uses ultrasound waves to tighten the skin of the face, neck and décolletage by stimulating fibroblasts in the skin to produce new collagen. It has over 60 published papers in the scientific literature to back up its effectiveness.

How does the Ulthera® treatment work?

The beauty of Ulthera® is that it has two components. The first is an ultrasound component for direct visualization of the layers of the skin and this is the only ultrasound machine on the market to do so. This allows the operator to directly view the layers of the skin during treatment to ensure the correct depth of treatment and avoid important structures such as blood vessels and nerves.

The second component is micro-focused ultrasound; two separate beams of ultrasound are focused under the skin at varying depths to create tiny pockets of heat. This denatures the collagen and tightens it, while stimulating the “builder cells” of the skin, fibroblasts, to produce new collagen.

What does this treatment involve?

Expect to be in clinic for 1 hour for target area treatments and 2-3 hours for full face and neck.

Photographs are taken prior to the procedure and you will have a full consutation with Dr. McDonnell who will consent you for the procedure. You will have the chance to discuss all the concerns your have pertaining the treatment before comencment.

Your face will be cleaned and topical aneasthetic will be applied for your comfort.

The area to be sanitised and marked out with grid lines which ensure a thorough and accurate treatment.

Different depth transducers will emmit pinpoint collaged under the skin using ultrasound guidance. Depending on the depth of your facial tissue upto 3 depths may be applied. The “shots” are described by most clients to feel hot and prickly, it is tolerated well by majority of clients.


Are there any side effects?

Side effects for this treatment include redness and swelling which should subside withing 48 hours, longer with sensative skins. There may be some bruising and sensativity to some areas which should resolve itself as the skin heals.

Mild discomfort after a treatment is to be expected decreasing within a 2 week period.

For any concerns you should contact the clinic and speak to one of our team for guidance.

What results will I see from Ulthera®?

It is important to note that the results from Ulthera® are not immediate as collagen stimulation takes at least 3 months. From 3-6 months you should see a gradual tightening of your skin and improvement in your fine lines and wrinkles. Your complexion will improve and previously saggy skin will tighten. These changes will continue to occur for up to 12 months after treatment.

How long will it last?

As described above, the effects of Ulthera® become visible 3-6 months after treatment but the effects can last from 12-24 months. Ulthera® is a single treatment but the ageing process is a continuous one, therefore clients often elect to have repeat treatments every 1-2 years as they love the effect it has on their skin. 

How much does Ulthera® treatment cost?

The cost of Ulthera® varies depending on the area treated with smaller areas such as the brows, around the eyes and around the mouth starting at $600 for a single treatment. Larger areas such as full face or face and neck are more expensive but we would advise you to book a consultation with Dr. McDonnell for an in depth, tailored consultation and quote.

Can Ultherapy® be combined with other treatments?

Absolutely,  Dr. McDonnell’s special interest is using dermal fillers, collagen stimulating fillers, anti-wrinkle injections and Ultherapy® in combination to achieve a non-invasive face or neck lift that looks natural and refreshing, resulting in a more youthful face and neck. The ageing process is due to many different factors and no single treatment can target all the causes. A consultation with Dr. McDonnell can identify all the possible options available to you and he can map out a treatment path that can fit your budget, timeframe and expectations.

We are a certified Ulthera® clinic and we would advise clients to be aware that there are many cheap imitation devices in clinics in Perth purporting to be the same as Ulthera®. Unfortunately, these imitation machines do not offer direct visualization of the layers of the skin and do not have the patented technology of Ultherapy®, which leads to ineffective treatments with higher risk of side effects and unhappy clients. Always ask your provider about their credentials, training and the name of the machine and check their if their details are listed on www.ultherapy.com.au.
