Ultraformer Skin Tightening
Ultraformer is a revolutionary non-surgical, non-invasive face and neck lifting and skin tightening treatment that works by stimulating your body’s natural regenerative processes. It uses highly sophisticated Micro-Focused Ultrasound energy to rejuvenate three critical levels of your skin’s infrastructure. It has an immediate tightening effect by contracting the collagen fibres that support your skin. Most importantly, Ultraformer treatment stimulates long-term production of new, stronger collagen, helping to lift and tighten sagging skin and fill out wrinkles, without downtime.
A single Ultraformer treatment* will
Lift and tighten sagging skin
Improve elasticity and firm up skin
Provide treated areas with slimmer contours as the skin tightens
Rejuvenate and strengthen your skin
HOW ULTRAFORMER WORKS
Below the surface (epidermis), your skin is made up of three important layers: the superficial dermis, the deeper dermis and the SMAS layer, the ‘infrastructure’ layer that connects your skin to the muscular structures below. With age, the building blocks of supple, youthful skin (collagen, elastic fibres and a gel-like substance called the extrafibrillar matrix) lose their strength and elasticity and the SMAS layer loses its ability to support your skin. The result is loose, sagging and wrinkled skin. Ultraformer treatment tackles sagging skin at all three levels.
Treatment benefits build gradually over a period of a few months, as the production of new collagen provides a more youthful support structure for your skin. You can expect to experience a tighter, more toned skin, along with some reversal of sagging in the treated areas.
THE ULTRAFORMER TREATMENT
Ultraformer's rapid shot technology allows faster treatment with less pain compared to other skin tightening treatments, allowing the treatment to be performed in 30 minutes in a lunchtime break, with no down-time and minimal side-effects (you may experience redness for a few hours)*.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM ULTRAFORMER TREATMENT?
You can expect to experience two phases of Ultraformer results*:
You will feel an immediate tightening of your skin in the treated area, as the heat from the Micro-Focused Ultrasound contracts the network of collagen fibres. The strands of protein that make up collagen shrink when exposed to the levels of heat used in Ultraformer treatment.
Micro-Focused Ultrasound also stimulates other cells, called Fibroblasts, to manufacture new, stronger collagen. This gradually develops over a period of months. The result is a gradual lifting of the skin in the treated area, as the support structures fill out.
ARE THE RESULTS LONG-LASTING?
Ultraformer benefits will peak between six and nine months after treatment*. The new collagen produced will be stronger, and its structure more ‘youthful’ than previously. This in turn makes your skin stronger and better supported, helping to reverse the effects of ageing on your skin.
A regular program of treatment every 6 to 12 months will maintain your results, and is likely also to give you some additional improvement after each subsequent treatment.
The Ultraformer 3 was originally approved for eyebrow lifting, but is commonly used on the jawline and neck, as well as other areas of the body such as inner arms, abdomen, inner thighs and buttocks
Over ten million treatments have been performed worldwide, so this has a proven safety record.
