Ultrasculpt is a non-invasive MFU device which uses Microfocused ultrasound waves (MFU). Its aim is to stimulate the body’s natural healing and cell regeneration process, which in turn boosts collagen and influences an uplifted effect. This happens without disturbing the skin’s surface, and a can be used to lift, tone and tighten facial and neck skin, as well as improve the appearance of the décolleté.

Ultrasculpt uses micro-focused ultrasound to tighten and lift skin. Ultrasculpt stimulates collagen generation and tightens the connective tissue at a deeper level than other non-surgical treatments. This can result in higher eyebrows, a tighter jawline, and smoother neck. Recent evidence shows efficacy for skin tightening in additional treatment sites such as the chest, abdomen, arms and knees.
Ultrasculpt treats the deep foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery, but won’t duplicate the results of a facelift. Ultrasculpt is a great alternative, however, especially for those not ready for surgery or for patients looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
Ultrasculpt uses sound energy – tried-and-true ultrasound – which has unique properties that allow it to bypass the surface of the skin to treat depths not matched by any other non-invasive cosmetic device. Ultrasculpt ultrasound stimulates collagen production in the skin’s foundation, resulting in a clinically significant lift of tissue over 2-3 months.Lasers rely on light energy, which cannot reach deeper skin layers at an optimal temperature, so laser treatments typically only treat superficial skin and are not FDA-cleared to lift skin.Since the two technologies often treat different types of skin issues, they’re actually very compatible.
Ultrasculpt deposits focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. The treatment jumpstarts a natural process, known as neocollagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen. Ultrasculpt doesn’t involve any creams, fillers or toxins; it just relies on your body’s own collagen-building process for natural, noticeable results.
The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
With Ultrasculpt, there is no downtime. After your procedure, you can resume your normal activities immediately, without having to follow any special post-treatment measures.
As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered.
After your Ultrasculpt Treatment, you may see some initial effect, but the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months, as your body naturally regenerates collagen. Since the procedure stimulates your own collagen production, how long the results last really depends on you. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but your natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside.
Most patients only need one treatment. However, based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and the individual’s collagen-building process, some patients benefit from additional treatments. Because skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help patients keep pace with the body’s natural aging process.
The skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are temporary in nature. Other, less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin. As with any medical procedure, there is the possibility for other rare effects, which your practitioner will review with you.
Ultrasound energy has been used safely in the medical field for more than 50 years. In addition, every Ultrasculpt practitioner receives extensive procedural training, so you can feel confident in choosing Aesthetic Center Manila for your Ultrasculpt treatments.
A good Ultrasculpt candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to feel and look less firm. Examples include a lowered eyebrow line, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin, and lines or wrinkles on the chest.
