Ultherapy is sometimes referred to as a ‘non-surgical facelift’. It is a treatment that uses High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound (‘HIFU’) energy to deliver heat at layers deep within the skin, to start a process that will eventually stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin should be thought of as the ‘building blocks’ of our skin and so by targeting them, treatment with Ultherapy results in a gradual but eventual lifting effect.
The other reason Ultherapy is sometimes called a non-surgical facelift, is because it allows for treatment at levels close to where a surgeon would operate, if they were performing a facelift. While it is not a complete substitute for a surgical facelift, Ultherapy appeals to those patients who want to achieve a lifting effect without surgery or any other cutting or damage to the surface of the skin.
One of the unique features of Ultherapy is that during the treatment, Dr Haus can monitor through a screen on the device, the area of skin tissue he is about to treat. This ensures that the ultrasound energy is delivered to the exact layers within the skin, where it will achieve the best result.
Ultherapy has been used for non-surgical skin lifting for a number of years, and as of May 2017 over 1 million Ultherapy treatments had been performed worldwide!
It is suitable for lifting and tightening skin on the brow area of the upper face, cheeks and jowls on the lower face, as well as the neck and décolletage.
Dr Haus often recommends Ultherapy in combination with laser and radiofrequency based treatments. The benefit of combining Ultherapy with these other energy based treatments, is that in addition to achieving a lifting effect, common external signs of ageing skin, like spider veins, uneven tone or texture, and sun damage, can also be improved upon during the same appointment.

Responses to treatment will vary from person to person and may even vary in the same person over time. It is for this reason that results are not guaranteed.
I am delighted with the Non Surgical Face-lift / Ultherapy treatment I had with Dr Haus recently. As I’ve reached my mid 40’s my jowls have started to sag slightly and I just looked a bit down in the mouth. Dr Haus was recommended to me by a friend and I am so glad that I made the decision to have this treatment with him. Dr Haus is very lovely and has an amazingly calm manner which puts you completely at ease. I chose this treatment as I wanted a natural looking lift without having anything drastic like surgery. Straight after the treatment, I was so happy to see that I had an immediate lift across my jawline, cheeks and brow area and my skin was just glowing. The best news is that the overall lift is going to improve even more over the next few months - so watch this space as I will be reporting back as my results continue to improve. Dr Haus completely put me at ease, made me feel very relaxed and comfortable. I expected the Ultherapy part of the treatment to be a little painful, but to be honest it was only slightly uncomfortable and nowhere near as bad as I expected it to be. Dr Haus finished the procedure with a light peel which left my skin glowing and really taut. I chose Dr Haus not only due to the personal recommendation but because he is a dermatologist, hugely experienced and gets results. I can’t recommend him highly enough, thank you Dr Haus. An added benefit is that the clinic is absolutely beautiful and his team are really helpful and friendly - so the overall experience is one that you would like definitely recommend and would be happy to repeat. I also left with a bag of skincare - which was an unexpected surprise. Thank you so much Dr Haus and team.
