Tried by Meredith Damouni

With over 700,000 patients treated, this non-invasive lifting procedure has no down time – it’s literally a ‘lunchtime’ lift. This totally got my attention. Those who know me know that I am not afraid of much, but show me a needle and I get a tad irksome.    

Using ultrasound therapy, the treatment stimulates collagen growth in the deep layers of the epidermis so the skin can have a kick start and literally start repairing itself. Just one treatment counteracts years of gravity and sun-damage.

It’s completely safe and super efficient for working mums like me! I have always been quite scared of surgery however this treatment is the perfect balance for me – addresses my vanity but doesn’t lose me a day from work and my family.

What to expect:

Before your treatment:

The first thing you will want to do is schedule a one-on-one consultation with an Ultherapy provider. During this session, your practitioner will address your concerns, assess your skin and determine if you are a candidate for the treatment. Once you book your Ultherapy® procedure, you won’t need to follow any special preparations or skincare regimens in advance of the treatment.

During your treatment:

After cleansing the skin and identifying the specific areas to be treated, your Ultherapy practitioner will apply the ultrasound gel and place the smooth treatment applicator against your skin. Next, your provider will use Ultherapy’s ultrasound imaging to first see deep within the skin to determine optimal placement of the treatment energy, and then deliver the focused ultrasound energy beneath the skin’s surface. During the treatment delivery, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated.

After your treatment:

The treatment reaches it’s peak around 8 weeks after the treatment when the skin has naturally started to rejuvenate and repair although there is a brightness noticeable can the skin immediately after the treatment. Honestly speaking,  it seems that my skin just improves more and more from day to day after my treatment.

I was extremely happy with the treatment at Biolite clinic in Dubai – one of my long-time favourites.
