Ultraformer III is an ultrasound skin tightening treatment that uses High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) energy to target pre-determined depths below the skin surface. It lifts and tighten loose skin by stimulating extensive collagen synthesis.
Who is suitable for Ultraformer III?
Candidates in their 30s and older who have mild to moderate skin seeking improvement in:
While Ultraformer III is not a replacement for a surgical face lift, it may be an option for those looking for a less invasive option such as sagging jowls treatment with zero downtime.
The most popular treatment is the full face and neck treatment which gives patients the maximum visible benefits.
How does Ultraformer III work?
Ultraformer III treats superficial, deeper skin layers, including the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) using a Triple Layer Lifting effect. The treatment heats up and stimulates existing collagen fibres, causing them to thicken and hence; providing a long-term tightening and lifting effect.
High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, an ultrasound for wrinkles allows deep penetration of energy, targeting depths of 1.5mm, 3mm and 4.5mm, for skin lifting and tightening.
With the high amount of energy that Ultraformer III emits, it can melt facial fats while tightening the area. This is particularly beneficial for lower face lifts, double chins, neck tightening and jowl reduction.
At 1.5mm, the High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound can lighten pigmentation and brighten the skin.
At 3mm, the heating of skin tissue is targeted mainly at skin tightening, where structural collagen is situated; delivering precise energy to stimulate collagen production.
4.5mm is where the lifting effect takes place. The Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) is usually situated at this depth. This is the layer surgeons tighten when performing a surgical face lift.
How does it feel? Any downtime requires?
The Ultraformer III is a comfortable procedure. Patients might feel a mild ache along bony areas, like the jawline. This is due to the ultrasound energy reflecting off the facial contours.
Ultraformer III takes approximately 60 minutes. Your skin may appear slightly flushed after the treatment, but any redness will subside within a few hours.
How long do the results last?
Ultraformer III, an ultrasound for wrinkles shows significant results; and ideal results are achieved 60 to 90 days after treatment. Collagen regeneration generally takes 30 to 90 days. Typically, each procedure last around 12 months.
