Ultraformer treatment uses 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. It can also be used for skin tightening on small problem areas of the body. 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.
Prior to treatment you skin will be cleaned, and a set of clinical photos will be taken. Topical anaesthetic can be applied. You can expect to experience some discomfort as the ultrasound energy is delivered.
Ultraformer 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.
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 clinician can advise you of the appropriate treatment regimen to maximise your results during your consultation.
Patients can notice immediate results with progressive improvement up to 90 days post-treatment for peak results. These results can be maintained from 12-24 months afterwards. Patients can go in for a “lunchtime treatment” and go back to their normal routine afterwards. Some flushing or swelling may occur.
