Turn Back Time – ULTRAcel skin lifting and firming

medical cosmetics today


Here’s the thing – when you hit your 40s or even late 30s those once pesky signs of ageing start to take centre stage. Frown and laughter lines become more prominent, creases more pronounced, and many of us – myself included – look for ways to combat wrinkles and lift ageing, sagging skin.

The temptation to up the volume or frequency on wrinkle reducing treatments like Botox and fillers can become all too appealing. However, sometimes I feel that sometimes more is less with non-invasive cosmetic procedures and our clients generally don’t want a frozen or overly ‘done’ look. This is why combination treatments are fast becoming the most effective way to subtly enhance whilst also soften the ageing process.

ULTRAcel- My Cosmetic Solution

There are lots of cosmetic solutions that complement cosmetic injections and a specialist cosmetic doctor is the best person to advise on what is right for each individual. One of my favourites is ULTRAcel, an amazing non-surgical tightening and lifting treatment that we offer at our exclusive monthly Dr Rita Rakus clinic – the famed and multi-award winning Knightsbridge team who tend to some of the UK’s biggest names. This clinic is now hosted at our Bruntsfield salon each month.

This amazing device offers 3 advanced technologies in one device: Radio Frequency, Ultrasound and RF Microneedling. The treatments can therefore be customised by the doctor depending on the conditions and requirements of the client. For example , ULTRAcel the combination of thermal heat energy with radio frequency microneedling can be used to boost collagen and elastin production in the deeper layers of skin for a tightening effect.

Pain-free results with ULTRAcel

Speaking from experience, I personally can’t recommend Ultracel enough. As a busy working mum and now in my 40s, I was in need of a boost and this tightening treatment ticked all the boxes – pain-free, no downtime (an essential when you’ve got a tight schedule juggling work and home life) and instant, long lasting results. My target/problem area was my neck, something I’m very conscious about because I think it’s a big giveaway of someone’s age and this treatment worked wonders… three months on and I’m still delighted. Maybe I’ve finally found the answer to my biggest bugbear.

What else does ULTRAcel do?

As well as lifting and tightening skin, ULTRAcel can be used to treat dark circles, stretch marks and acne scarring. It can also help to improve lines and wrinkles, lift pigmentation and even out skin tone.  To find out more please just call us  book a consultation at our regular cosmetic clinic in the  Bruntsfield salon. You won’t be disappointed!
