What does Ultraformer III Treat?
Ultraformer III performs skin tightening on the:
Treats fine lines and wrinkles
Rejuvenates and strengthens the skin
How does the procedure work?
Ultraformer III is a revolutionary non-surgical and non-invasive skin tightening treatment that works by stimulating your body’s natural regenerative processes. It uses highly sophisticated Micro-Focused Ultrasound energy to rejuvenate the three critical levels of your skin’s infrastructure.
Ultraformer III works with geometric precision. Micro-Focused Ultrasound sends bursts of finely tuned ultrasound energy to precise depths to stimulate regeneration. The target tissues are heated to the specific temperature required to induce ‘thermal injury’, which causes the collagen to contract, and then, over time, to produce new and stronger collagen. Ultraformer’s Exact Focusing Technology ensures that the right depth is always targeted.
What will the patient experience during the procedure?
A local anaesthetic cream may be applied to the area 45 minutes to an hour prior to the procedure. Occasionally oral or other analgesia will also be used. The degree of heat required for optimal results will probably cause some discomfort as the ultrasound energy is delivered. Your practitioner will advise a plan to optimise your comfort during the procedure. It is normal to feel some discomfort with this procedure and you will experience a feeling similar to mild sunburn for 1-2 hours following the treatment including redness, heat and skin dryness.
The treatment takes approximately 45 minutes to perform on one area such as the face or neck.
What can the patient expect after the procedure
You can expect to experience two phases of Ultraformer III results:
In the first instance 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 second, more obvious and long term results will become more evident over time. Ultraformer III 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 help to maintain your results, and each subsequent treatment is likely to give you some additional improvement.
The changes in the epidermis and dermal collagen are permanent; nevertheless time, sun exposure and gravity will continue to take its toll.
