What is ULTRAcel Q+?
ULTRAcel Q+ is a safe, state of the art, non-surgical treatment for tightening, firming and lifting skin and deeper tissue(SMAS), using High Intensity Focused Ultrasound.(HIFU)
How does ULTRAcel Q+ work?
You may be familiar with the ultrasound used to examine unborn babies in the womb. That same technology can be used to stimulate healing in the deeper layers of skin.
Ultrasound therapy (HIFU) shoots ultrasound waves into the skin, where they act by heating targeted tissue, tightening SMAS and stimulating the body’s natural collagen production. While there is a noticeable instant tightening, once the body starts producing collagen, the skin tightens and firms significantly.
It’s a precise tightening treatment for the skin and deeper tissues (SMAS) The body’s natural healing and collagen regeneration process produces a new, healthy and tighter appearance of the face, neck and décolleté.
What conditions and areas can be treated with ULTRAcel Q+?
General firming, tightening and lifting of the brow, eyes, face, jowl, neck and décolleté
When will I see results?
Generally the skin will begin to look smoother and tighter after the first treatment, and the results from the treatment will continue to improve for up to six months, as the collagen continues to regenerate. The results will vary, depending on the original condition of the skin and deeper tissue, and degree and cause of damage
How many ULTRAcel Q+ treatments will I need?
The number of treatments required will depend entirely on the area being treated and the condition of the skin. You may benefit from a combination treatment with INTRAcel Pro.(Radio Frequency Micro Needling)
