Ultraformer III

Ultraformer III – Skin Tightening and Contouring

Ultraformer treatment uses HIFU (high frequency ultrasound) to lift and tighten a number of problem areas,  including the lower face, under the chin, and neck. It can reduce wrinkles around the eyes,  mouth and cheeks.

During Ultraformer treatment, low amounts of Micro-Focused Ultrasound energy are delivered into precise skin depths, without damaging the surface of the skin. The MFU  energy creates heat, which stimulates tissue remodelling. The result, over time, is a natural skin lifting, tightening and rejuvenation.

What can I expect in the treatment?

Prior to treatment you skin will be cleaned, and a set of clinical photos will be taken.   Ultrasound Gel is applied to the treatment area.  Most patients will feel a warming sensation or sensation similar to IPL as the ultrasound energy is delivered.  No topical anaesthetic is required.

What does Ultraformer III treat?

Ultraformer III performs skin tightening on the Face, Neck and Body. It can also be used to lift the skin, treat fine lines and wrinkles, and rejuvenate and strengthen the skin.

How long does each treatment take?

Ultraformer III treatments take between 30 minutes to an hour, depending on which areas are being treated.

How many treatments will I need?

Most patients will need only one treatment, and then can repeat the treatment every 12 months to maintain their results.

For moderate to severe laxity, 2 treatments in the first 6 months is recommended, and maintenance treatments every 12 months after that.

Your doctor can advise you of the appropriate treatment regimen to maximise your results during your consultation.

Who can have the Ultraformer III treatment?

Patients suitable for Ultraformer III are those with sagging and laxity of the skin, caused by sun damage and ageing. Patients with facial implants or open wounds on their face are not appropriate for this treatment.

Do I need to do anything to prepare for the treatment?

For best results, we recommend men are clean shaven on the day for treatment. There is no need to wear makeup as it will be removed prior to treatment.

What are the possible side effects?

Although side effects are uncommon they can occur. They are usually temporary and mild in nature.

Your skin may appear red for a few hours after Ultraformer III treatment. You may experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness for a few days after treatment.

Rarely, some patients may experience temporary bruising welts or numbness. As with any heat-based treatment, there is a slight risk of burning the skin.

Temporary nerve inflammation will resolve in a few days or weeks. If a motor nerve has become inflamed, you might experience some temporary local muscle weakness. There could be some temporary numbness if a sensory nerve has become inflamed.
