Best Skin Care, Best Costs
Ultratherapy is a type of non-invasive face lift where ultrasound waves stimulate the skin to make collagen, which in turn repairs, tightens and rejuvenates the skin.
Ultherapy is an alternative treatment for facelift surgery. The durability and effectiveness of this non-surgical method has been satisfactory for many clients and has made ultrasound their first choice.
In this method, the physician will radiate ultrasound waves onto the skin and its underlying layers to increase the temperature in that area. After that, the skin reaction begins in the form of collagen production and skin repair, causing the skin to tighten and lift. In this method, no synthetic material or filler enters the body. Also, there are no incisions or wounds on the face.
In this article, we discuss some details of ultherapy including the cost, facial and body ultherapy, how it is done, the side effects and the difference between ultrasound and HIFU.
The cost of ultrasound therapy in Iran depends on the following:
Initially, during a treatment consultation, your doctor will check the condition of your skin and determine the number of sessions and other treatments needed. At the same meeting, your doctor will inform you about the costs of your treatment. In general, the cost of complete facial HIFU in reputable clinics is between 2 to 3 million tomans. See the table below for more information.
Ultherapy is a very easy but fruitful procedure. It does not require any clinical stays or even anesthesia. It take an average of 1 hour and the healing takes a maximum of 2 days. The candidate can return to work 3 days after receiving their treatment.
Good and fresh skin is one of the most important criteria of beauty. Skin loses its freshness and firmness due to aging and environmental factors such as sunlight or weight gain and loss. In such cases, we use adjuvant therapies. The following are examples of treatments that improve the quality and firmness of the skin:
For this method, the dermatologist injects a wide varying type of gels into the desired area to add volume to that area.
Skin Lift Surgery
This surgery removes loose and excess skin of the target area to create a sufficient lift on the face.
In this method, laser radiation is used to improve collagen production and eliminate wrinkles.
In chemical peeling dead and damaged layers of the skin surface are removed to create healthy skin in the desired area.
In this method, devices such as microdermabrasion and microneedling remove damaged surface layers and increase collagen production in the skin.
Ultherapy is also called HIFU and ultrasound therapy. In fact, ultrasound is the newest method of HIFU and these two methods are not so much different. HIFU stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, emphasizing on ultrasound waves being focused. As the name implies, the basis of this method is to use the energy of ultrasound waves to change the texture of the skin.
HIFU is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure; This means that there is no damage to the body and skin and it is more than often painless. This is a very suitable alternative for lifting or facelift surgery and has no surgical complications at all.
The use of ultrasound in beauty and skin rejuvenation procedures began in 2008 in the United States. This technology was also used to treat some illnesses in the past. Today, HIFU devices that are licensed by the US FDA have entered the market, and some of the highest quality HIFU devices are available in Iran.
The process of producing ultrasound waves in ultherapy is as safe as that of ultrasound devices. In ultrasound, the waves are generated by a device and radiated to the skin by certain probes. The penetration and power of these waves can be altered by the device settings to reach the desired depth, create the right heat and maximize the effectiveness of the device.
Ultrasound waves reach the SMAS (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System) layer or the main layer effective in lifting. The waves heat up the area causing controlled damage and stimulating collagen production. Collagens are the molecules that are responsible for the firmness of the skin, and hence, reducing the area of the skin leads to its firmness and rejuvenation. It is noteworthy that in HIFU therapy, the heat can be concentrated in a specific area without affecting the surroundings.
The process of aging and sagging skin, that is due to the reduction of collagen and other structural molecules, begins at the age of 25 to 30 years. For this reason, it is better to start preventive measures to maintain the freshness and health of the skin.
HIFU therapy is one of the top non-invasive methods to tighten the skin and stimulate collagen production. In Medpaltrip, we assure the best medical centers and specialists and accompany you in the treatment process.
Some of the major applications of Ultherapy are:
Ultrasound therapy in Iran has replaced plastic surgery in many cases. Facial HIFU therapy lifts all areas of the face and removes frown lines and smiles. Jaw angulation and skin firmness are also effects of this cosmetic therapy. Take note that this treatment is not very effective for sagging and old age, where undergoing face lift surgery is recommended.
This HIFU treatment removes sagging skin under the neck and improves the shape of the chin and lifts these areas.
This treatment lifts eyelids and eyebrows. It also eliminates drooping eyelids and removes fine wrinkles around the eyes.
Facial skin is not the only area affected by aging. Loose and sagging skin on the neck, décolleté area and arms also has a significant effect on beauty. That is why HIFU treatment can be used to tighten and lift these areas.
In nose lift with Ultherapy, the micro-pores of the nose are enhanced and the size of the larger areas are reduced. Of course, the effects of nasal ultherapy are not as significant as rhinoplasty, but it is effective in improving the shape and beauty of the nose.
Localized obesity in the abdomen, hips, and lower abdomen are usually difficult to resolve. Once these are removed, sagging and loose skin may occur in the thinned areas. HIFU treatment, in addition to reducing the amount of fat, tightens the skin in these areas. The penetration depth of ultrasound waves in these areas is increased to maximise the effects.
One of the most important benefits of ultrasound in Iran is the high quality of treatment and the marginal costs. Ultrasound devices in Iran comply with international standards. The devices used in Iran are on par with those in competing countries. On the other hand, Iranian physicians have gained the knowledge of cosmetology in the finest universities and medical centers of the world and have participated in various courses in world-class universities to be ready to serve clients.

Let’s take a look at some other advantages of Ultherapy in Iran.
You do not need any special preparations before performing Ultherapy and should only observe the following:
According to the approval of the US Food and Drug Administration and the licenses of the Ministry of Health of Iran, the Ultherapy devices all follow specific standards and do not cause any serious complications. However, some of the very rare and mild side effects of HIFU treatment are:
Considering all the above mentioned especially the side effects of Ultherapy, we must keep in mind that the most important factor in getting the desired results is to choose a skilled and proficient doctor as well as a standard center. The physician must have complete control over the amount of energy required and the depth required for ultrasound to penetrate different people and different skin types. Without this, the generated heat may burn the deeper layers of the skin or, conversely, the amount of energy may not be sufficient to have the desired effect. Choosing a specialist doctor and a reputable center is always one of the most difficult steps in treatment, and as the wide variety of choices may be confusing. In Medpaltrip, we will make this step easy for you and by providing you with the top notch specialists to make your Ultherapy in Iran a memorable experience.
