Using Ultracel to lift and tighten the skin

USING ULTRASOUND TO LIFT AND TIGHTEN THE FACE

So how can ultrasound waves be used to lift and tighten the face? For this week’s Tweak of the Week I’m visiting Dr Rita Rakus at her clinic in Knightsbridge to learn about Ultracel, which uses high-intensity focussed ultrasound to tighten the collagen, lift the skin and stimulate new collagen growth.

As Dr Rakus explains in the video, there are three technologies within the Ultracel machine – ultrasound, radiofrequency and microneedling, but for this week’s treatment, we are just showing the ultrasound element.

What does it feel like? How long does a treatment take? Watch the video and you’ll see.

ABOUT

Alice Hart-Davis is an award-winning beauty journalist and author. For nearly 20 years she has been reporting on the aesthetic cosmetic procedures colloquially known as tweakments, and has trialled countless procedures in order to review them.

Alice has won many awards for her work, though none for services as a cosmetic guinea pig. She attends aesthetics conferences around the world and spends a lot of time catching up with the doctors, surgeons, dentists, nurses and the companies behind the technology in this fast-expanding field, the better to understand the tweakments on offer.

Over the years Alice has seen — and experienced first-hand — plenty of bad treatments, and understands the many problems that beset the aesthetics industry, from the lack of regulation to the rising incidence of body dysmorphia among cosmetic patients and practitioners.

Despite this, she remains an advocate of good, understated cosmetic work — the sort which goes undetected and unremarked, because it doesn’t lead to weird-looking hamster cheeks or frozen foreheads. She is also still enthusiastic about the potential of tweakments for making people look that bit better, which in turn makes them feel better about themselves and better able to get on with the rest of their lives.

She lives in London, a short bicycle ride from Harley Street, with her husband and a lively Jack Russell terrier. Her three young adult children take a dim view of tweakments, but accept that these are something she does for work (and are too kind to use the word, ‘vanity’).
