In the preparation for Christmas Day, we had a chance to experience one of the most powerful and yet non-surgical procedures, Ultracel Face-lift by Dr Jonquille Chantrey.
ULTRAcel Face-lift therapies use the latest multi-platform devices offering non-surgical skin tightening and lifting as well as addressing fine lines and wrinkles, giving your skin the fresh, flossy and smooth appearance. Our beauty therapist Julie explained that it is safe and proven technology and is a highly successful alternative to injectables and surgery.
The ULTRAcel Face-lift therapies they offer at Expert Aesthetics are the lower face and neck lifting and tightening therapy. They normally offer FRM microneedling therapy that follows Ultracel, but each procedure is based on individual needs, and Julie admitted that I don’t need one at the moment. The whole experience was very personal, based on my actual needs.
ULTRAcel’s Face-lift for Lower Face & Neck Lifting and Skin Tightening
Combining the power of two aspects of the ULTRAcel device, this therapy aims to not only firm and tighten the skin of the lower face and neck, but also to encourage lifting of the tissues. The result is firmer healthier skin over the lower face and neck and a more lifted contoured appearance over the lower face, jawline and neck.
Julie initially used radiofrequency to apply controlled heat to the skin. She explained each step along the way and said that this helps to promote skin remodelling within the dermis of the skin and encourages the production of collagen. That part very relaxing, and prepared my skin for the next step.
Following radiofrequency, the ultrasound probe then applied concentrated ultrasound waves to the posture muscle that lies beneath the facial tissues. This helped to tighten the muscle and give the lift to the tissues. I was told that some people don’t feel anything while others experience some discomfort. That was me! Apparently I am very sensitive.
The results of this therapy were seen straight away. Julie however said, that it takes three months to reach the full effect as the skin continues to remodel. The results are then shown to last for up to two years. This makes it a fantastic preventative treatment to have to slow down the ageing of the facial skin and underlying tissues.
My before and after pictures say it all.
And the best part of it is that there is no downtime to this treatment, which makes it a popular option for many people.
The ULTRAcel Face-lifts can be repeated, enhancing the effects further. They suggest as it takes three months until full effect is reached that it is repeated at the three-month mark. This treatment can be done in conjunction with other injectables, such as anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers to enhance the effects further. I have to say, that I love the first visible effect, which was my more contoured and defined jawline.
