Multi Functional MMFU (Micro & Macro Focused Ultrasound)
The ULTRAFORMER III is an optimum, non-invasive ultrasound device that lifts and tightens the face for a youthful complexion. With precision per shot pulse, HIFU-powered transducers are designed to either remodel collagen to remove facial wrinkles and sagging skin to reflect your true potential.
APPLICATION : Lifts & tightens the face for a youthful complexion and tightens the body.
NON-INVASIVE : Non-surgical skin tightening and face lifting.
EFFECTIVE & LESS PAIN : Promotes maximum collagen production meaning plumper, smoother more youthful skin.
MULTI-FUNCTIONAL & MULTI-DEPTH : High-intensity Focused Ultrasound for uniform distribution at multiple depths.
MICRO & MACRO FOCUSED : Macrofocused transducers reach a volume 8x larger than the microfocused, allowing the lipolysis effect.
FAST & PRECISE : This treatment is between 30-60 minutes and has no downtime.
HIGH PEAK POWER : Strong energy capacity with high peak power.
HOW IT WORKS?
High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) transducers deliver concentrated waves of ultrasound into multiple layers of skin and body tissues without making direct contact with surrounding areas or damaging the surface. Transferring stabilized temperatures of 65-75°C into the targeted zones, the Ultraformer induces a process of neocollagenesis.
Collagen renewal in the face triggered by HIFU involves heating the dermal and superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) layers that undergo separate phases of blood coagulation, wound contractions, and tighter shelving of new collagen to resolve the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin.
In addition, the Ultraformer III has an innovative ‘wrinkle cartridge’; a 2.0mm macro focused cartridge, that can treat superficial wrinkles around the eyes and lips more effectively than other skin tightening technology.
The dermis layer of the skin naturally synthesizes less collagen over the course of time.
Focused ultrasound waves deliver energy directly within the skin layer causing a shrinking effect.
After inflammation and fibroplasia is caused, new collagen is formed in the targeted area.
Through the regeneration of collagen, wrinkles are eliminated in the process of both firming and tightening the skin.
How many treatment will I need?
Ultraformer has three differing levels, which target to three different depths of the skin. After an initial consultation the best suiting treatment level will be prescribed to you. Therefore, the recommended series of Ultraformer treatments vary from each client and each treatment level.
Does it hurt?
As the device touches your skin, you will feel a brief moment of vibration and pin prick heating. What you are feeling during the treatment is actually tiny amounts of concentrated ultrasound energy being deposited below the surface of the skin. Patients have noted some discomfort while the energy is being delivered, but it is temporary and a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated.
Are there common side effects?
Very rarely one may experience slight redness for a few hours after the treatment as well as swelling or tingling in the treatment area for up to a few weeks. There may also be bruising and numbness on treated areas but this should resolve 2-4 weeks following the procedure.
