What is ULTRAcel Treatment?
ULTRAcel treatment is the recent and advanced non-surgical & non-invasive process for the skin lifting & tightening. ULTRAcel will haul up, tighten and tone your wobbly skin. With the use of handheld devices that transfers the grid radio frequency and ultrasound waves to the skin. These devices not only targets the outer epidermal layer, but also the deeper facial and neck soft tissue structures which allow the more face lifting along with neck tightening.
It redefines the RF skin tightening treatment or anti-aging treatment which rejuvenates your skin completely from inside out and it works on wrinkles, skin texture, nasolabial folds, chin, jaw line or even large pores. Grid RF uses radiofrequency energy that creates the thermal grid shapes on the epidermis & a uniform thermal zone in the upper dermis during the RF emission.
This is the ideal for skin tightening & rejuvenation by applying the precisely controlled radio frequency waves directly to the skin with the help of minimally invasive micro-needles. The treatment is best for eliminating wrinkles, fine lines, pore minimization, acne & acne scars, stretch marks and pigmentation. The optimal radiofrequency that is delivered to the dermal layers are up to 60-80ºC.
HIFU offers the non-invasive alternative to the surgical face lift while improving the fine lines, wrinkles, décolleté etc. It is the best skin treatment for face contouring also. HIFU uses the ultrasound waves to safely lift & tighten the skin. It penetrates deep into the dermal layers at high temperature and also protects the skin. During the procedure, thermal heat is created within the skin tissue that creates the tiny wounds and cellular friction. This promotes the healing mechanism of the skin and also enhances the collagen production, giving skin a tight and lifted effect.
What areas can be treated with ULTRAcel?
ULTRAcel is a 3 step skin layer lifting which targets the skin tissues and with the help of body’s natural healing process, new cells or tissues are generated resulting in more collagen production and tighter or firm skin. The areas which can be treated with the ULTRAcel treatment are;
- Mid face skin tightening and lifting
- Eyes rejuvenation
- Eye lift
- Neck lift
- Marionette (around lips)
- Lower face skin tightening
- Eye Brow lift
- Decollete Skin Area
How ULTRAcel Works?
ULTRAcel is the advanced, non-invasive skin tightening treatment which requires no downtime. In ULTRAcel skin uplifting and tightening treatment, small and focused ultrasound waves penetrate through the epidermal layer to reduce the signs of aging through non-invasive lifting & tightening skin. ULTRAcel technology combines the 3 powerful & highly effective technologies in one process. With the use of radiofrequency with the ultrasound waves, ULTRAcel targets and transfers heat to the collagen in the deeper layers of skin. After this, stimulation of new collagen which helps to lift the skin resulting in firmer and tighter skin.
- Grid RF In the Upper dermis, radio frequency and high intensity focused ultrasound waves are emitted to 3.0/4.5 mm depth with fractional shape. It helps to stimulates the collagen production and smoothens the skin surface.
RF targets the area to be treated
It penetrates into the deep dermal layer of skin
Increased collagen production
Smooth skin surface
- RF Micro-needling: RF Micro-needling is an avant-garde skin repairing technique. In RF micro-needling, small insulated micro-needles create tiny wounds by penetrating into the dermal layer of skin. When it is combined with RF, it enables the thermal energy to stimulate body’s natural healing mechanism which enhances the collagen production.
Delivers heat energy through the needles in the dermis
Collagen production is stimulated through the natural healing process
Enhanced collagen results in smooth & wrinkle free skin
- HIFU/FUS: HIFU targets the deep SMAS layer (Superficial muscular aponeurotic system) of face. In HIFU, the high intensity of ultrasound is emitted to the deep structural layers such as fascia, SMAS fat layer, dermis boundary layer of subcutaneous which causes thermal wounds, prompting the body to launch its natural healing process. Skin begin to produce more collagen, which lifts, tightens and contours the skin resulting in wrinkle free skin.
HIFU targets the deep fat layer of skin and imparts thermal energy
After 1 month, collagen production start increasing through wound healing process
After 3 month, more collagen production
Smooth, tight and uplifted skin
Why ULTRAcel treatment for skin tightening?
ULTRAcel skin tightening process is done with the world’s hi-tech or advanced face lifting machine and it is the non-surgical face lift machine. ULTRAcel increases the density of collagen by producing more collagen peptides & elastin in the dermis. This technique is so far advanced from the only laser skin tightening. This ULTRAcel skin tightening treatment is the best for non-surgical neck tightening or non-surgical neck lift, chin lift without surgery, jaw line lift and non-surgical eyebrow lift.
- High power transducers in ULTRAcel helps to create a coagulation zone which is required of an ample size for desired in-depth.
- With its powerful frequency, it helps to create a coagulation zone over the temperature of 60ºC in the dermal layer.
- With the help of mimicking phantoms, cartridges of ULTRAcel machine is tested to ensure better & high-quality results.
- The handheld devices of this skin uplifting machine are designed vertically to provide a clear vision & easy handling during the treatment.
How is ULTRAcel skin uplifting procedure different from other skin tightening procedures?
ULTRAcel is 3 in one technique for the skin tightening & uplifting. It uses the three different technologies which are;
- Grid Fractional Radiofrequency (GFR)
- High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU/FUS)
- Fractional Radiofrequency Micro-needling (FRM), also known as INTRAcel
Among the above-given procedures for skin tightening, GFR & FUS are performed in one session while FRM is performed in one single session.
- With dermal micro-needling technique along with fractional radio frequency, there is enhanced collagen & elastin production.
- You may feel heat or pricking sensation and skin will turn into red which will be normal within 2-3 days.
GFR & FUS
- With the help of thermal heat energy, there is simulation in the collagen production to tighten the skin.
- You may feel the a stinging sensation and mild soreness which will resolve within 2-3 weeks
What is the difference between ULTRAcel & INTRAcel?
- ULTRAcel is also known as HIFU or FUS and provides a structural lift to the skin. ULTRAcel is a non-invasive method which uses ultrasound and radiofrequency energy in synergy to work at the deeper layer of the skin (the SMAS layer).
- INTRAcel is also referred to as FRM. It works by resurfacing the skin’s surface and stimulates the collagen and elastin production. INTRAcel combines the Micro-needling with radiofrequency to target the heat energy below the surface of the skin.
As the treatment involves the use of high-frequency waves, then you must take your treatment from an expert and highly trained doctor. Then there will be less to no chances of any complications.
There are no serious side effects or complications. After the treatment, you may experience mild sun burnt sensation which will resolve itself within few days. Your skin may appear red for few hours. Swelling or bruising is minimal under the eyes which will resolve within 1-2 days.

There is no to minimal downtime for ULTRAcel skin tightening procedure.
After the treatment, you have to apply the sunscreen on your face for better healing. If you have a burning sensation, then you may apply aloe vera gel and cold compress on your face. However, after 24 hours, you can apply makeup too.
This is what that purely depends on your skin condition. The dermatologist will analyze your skin condition and area to be treated for skin uplifting. On the basis of that, the doctor will tell you about the number of sessions required.
The ULTRAcel is not a “facelift.” It is actually an uplift. While it is not a replacement for surgery, it is a viable option for those not ready for undergoing a surgery. You can enhance or contour your facial features also.
A full face-and-neck treatment takes approximately 30 mins -1 hour or depending upon the area to be treated.
Usually there is no need of anesthesia for the ULTRAcel treatment. But you if you are sensitive to pain, then you can ask the dermatologist for anesthesia application. A topical or injectable anesthesia can be applied prior to the treatment in that case.
