UlTRAcel is an effective resurfacing and skin tightening treatment that also delivers results on stretch marks, dark circles, and acne scarring. This treatment is a combination of three highly effective technologies – Grid Fractional Radio Frequency, High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, and Fractional Micro Needling, which sends heat energy into the dermis promoting collagen growth and elastin production. The results are healthy and youthful-looking skin.
- Skin tightening and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
- Treatment of scars, acne and open pores (Microneedling)*
- Improving skin texture, creating a smoother younger looking skin
If all three layers are to be treated, a program of treatments is recommended.
3 Modalities of treatment can be used alone or in combination.
LAYER 1 (GFR): Contraction of the Superficial Epidermis
Grid Fractional Radiofrequency is also known as Thermage. This non-invasive step delivers heat and energy to the collagen fibers of the skin, causing the upper layers of the skin to tighten.
LAYER 2 (FRM): Contraction of the Dermis
This is known as Fractional Radiofrequency Microneedling (FRM). It involves energy being delivered deeper into the tissue, combining the benefits of deeper radiofrequency collagen stimulation as well as unprecedented collagen remodeling caused by microneedling. This can cause plumping and tightening of the skin. It is ideal for scarring and also treats active acne.
LAYER 3 (FUS): Contraction of the muscular layers (SMAS)
High intensity focused ultrasound waves are used to target a layer of tissue that previously could only be improved with surgery. The superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) will tighten and contract as a direct result of the focused thermal energy applied to it when layer 3 is treated with UlTRAcelTM.
Before and After
How many treatments are needed?
For skin tightening, most clients will see results after one session. We usually recommend two sessions, and some clients may need three, depending on the severity of loose skin. Session spacing will vary from person to person and would vary from three to 12-month intervals.
For scar treatments, a course of three or more may be needed, but again, it depends on the severity.
