What is ULTRAcel Q+?
ULTRAcel Q+ is a face and body tightening treatment that uses high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy to target the layers of skin beneath the surface. This process works to rapidly heat the tissues and cells, damaging their structural integrity. This damage stimulates the body’s natural healing response, encouraging the production of new collagen. This provides additional structure to the skin and leaves it looking and feeling tighter and firmer.
ULTRAcel Q+ treatments serve a number of purposes, and can be used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, remove stubborn fat, lift and tighten the skin and revitalise the complexion.
What to expect during your ULTRAcel Q+ treatment
ULTRAcel Q+ treatments are relatively comfortable and take around 30 to 60 minutes to complete. We will first cleanse your skin, before marking out the treatment area with a pencil to ensure that all main nerves and any sensitive areas are avoided during your treatment.
We will then apply the ultrasound gel to the treatment area. This may feel cold at first, however will feel quite soothing once the treatment begins. As the HIFU technology heats under your skin, you may feel some heat, tenderness or a pin-prick sensation. This shouldn’t be overly painful, however we will endeavour to help you manage any discomfort during your treatment.

- Crow’s feet

Frequently Asked Questions
ULTRAcel Q+ treatments are often recommended as a non-surgical alternative to a facelift. This is because HIFU treatments are designed to target the SMAS layer of the skin (the same layer addressed during a facelift) without the need for surgical or invasive procedures, anaesthesia or hospitalisation. Instead, ULTRAcel Q+ treatments are relatively pain-free, require no downtime afterwards and do not leave a scar.
