Ultracel Q+

Do you remember when facelifts were typically performed by a surgeon and involved weeks of downtime plus numerous stitches? Those days are long gone. Now it’s almost possible to have a non-invasive facelift in your lunch hour, before heading back to work, without a stitch in sight.

Nonsurgical facelifts are performed at our Suffolk practice, using ultrasound technology

During the treatment, HIFU ultrasound technology will be used to target deep skin cells and purposely heat them with the aim of damaging them. This action will stimulate the body’s natural skin repair response and create genuine fresh skin tissue to replace sagging, and lined surface areas. This process is all down to a successful stimulation of collagen production.

With these facelifts you can expect similar results to those produced by surgery. Essentially you’ll see your skin laxity reversed to give you a more youthful facial appearance. It should be lifted and tightened. Unsightly bulges will be flattened to give you a sharper profile.

Treatment of the whole face using Ultracel Q+ and HIFU takes between 3 and 10 minutes, for body, treatment time is 20-45 minutes. The mode that will best suit the area you wish to target will be advised by Rebecca during your consultation.

There is no downtime with this treatment. It couldn’t be more different to surgery given the long surgical recovery time, and yet the results are similar!

Results are fully seen at 3 months and last for up to 2 years. Top up treatments will ensure you maintain your new look.

During the treatment, small amounts of energy are deposited under the skin, to stimulate collagen production and produce new skin tissue. This process may feel prickly, but it’s not painful.

Your skin may feel warm afterwards. It may also be blotchy. But these superficial side effects will soon subside. The treatment is considered very safe.

Rebecca will advise you as to how you can best look after your skin following treatment, but you will be guided to avoid the sun, keep yourself hydrated, avoid hot showers, and to try and avoid scratching your treated skin.

treatment areas


Skin laxity at the jawline will be tightened. The skin will be lifted, giving you a sharper, younger-looking profile.

Mid face

Sunken cheeks and the tear troughs will be targeted to provide a more even skin tone and a hydrated youthful plumpness across the mid face area.

Lower face

Prominent expression lines running vertically from the nose and mouth will be smoothed over. Additionally the corners of the lips may be lifted.


  • You should look younger than your years, with smoothed over fine lines, and areas of sagging skin lifted. Your facial skin should look tighter, plumper, and generally be more youthful looking.

  • The effects of your facelift will be visible after 3 months. The number of sessions you’ll need to achieve your beauty goals will be determined by Rebecca during your consultation.

  • You can book a top up treatment with us. There’s no reason you can’t maintain your new look, if you simply keep up to date with your top up bookings.

  • No. Some patients have reported a prickly feeling, but it shouldn’t hurt.

  • Dot mode is slightly slower than linear mode. It reaches 65 degrees centigrade to make skin tissues shrink. This mode is ideal for lifting skin. The linear mode is very fast and generally used for volume reduction, so more likely to be applied to a sagging jawline.

  • The results of your facelift should last for 6-12 months. After this time, you’ll be invited to a top up treatment to maintain your new look.

  • The results of your facelift could last for up to 3 years. After this time, you’ll be invited to a top up treatment to maintain your new look.
