What is Ultraformer III?
Ultraformer III uses ultrasound energy in a non-invasive way to tighten and lift tissue in the face and the body. Ultrasound waves create a natural-looking lift, sometimes called a non-surgical facelift.
Most areas of the body can be treated, though it is ideal for the face and neck. This treatment is also very effective for arms, knees and abdomen.
When the treatment area has been thoroughly cleaned, the ultrasound gel is applied. There are various handpieces to treat the different targeted depths within the tissue.
The energy is delivered by the machine at comfortable levels and no analgesics or painkillers are required.
The area requires two treatments, the second application being applied 1-6 months later. This will be discussed during consultation and dependent on the area to be treated.
Minor improvements to the treated area are evident immediately. The results continue to improve over a 6-8 week period.
After 2 treatments the results last up to 18 months, after which maintenance treatments are required.
Ultraformer III combines both micro focused ultrasound (sometimes referred to as HIFU), as well as macro focused ultrasound energies to repair and enhance the appearance of the face and body.
These ultrasound energies can penetrate to the deeper layers of the skin, even to the muscle layers. The SMAS layer is the muscle layer treated in a facelift and Ultraformer III targets this layer during treatment.
There is virtually no down time associated with ultrasound treatment. Occasionally there may be some temporary redness to the treated area.
