What is Ultraformer III?
Ultraformer III is a non-surgical system which is used for skin lifting, tightening as well as contouring. It is the newest of the focused-ultrasound family (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound – HIFU). The device transfers ultrasound energy into multiple layers of skin by 3 multi-depth cartridges.
The high-frequency beams delivered by the device allow a targeted focus below the skin's surface, causing no damages to the upper layers. Skin problems such as wrinkles, fine lines, saggy skin, enlarged pores, excess fat, etc. can be handled by Ultraformer III.
This procedure leaves no scarring, incisions, and no recovery or downtime required.
How It Works
Ultraformer III has three cartridges: the first cartridge works in the deep layer underneath the skin, focusing on the layer where deep facial muscles and fascias are. The second cartridge focuses on the point immediately under the skin, whereas the third cartridge works with the skin surface.
The procedure can at times give occasionally uncomfortable experience, thus numbing cream may be applied prior to the treatment.
During the procedure, the focused ultrasound waves deliver energy directly within the skin layer to cause a shrinking effect. After inflammation and fibroplasia is caused, new collagen will be stimulated to form in the treated area. Through the collagen regenerating process, wrinkles are gradually eliminated by both firming and tightening of the skin.
Noticeable improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, and facial contouring can be observed immediately after the treatment and further improvements can be seen gradually within 6 weeks after the treatment.
Moreover, Ultraformer III is an excellent procedure for a post-surgical facelift to maintain the lift and treat scarring and numbness.
