What is Ultraformer lll?
Ultraformer III is the latest non-surgical technology using High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) and Micro-Macro Focused Ultrasound (MMFU) to deliver a non-invasive face, neck and body lifting treatment. Ultraformer III is not only good for skin lifting and tightening; it also helps with lines, wrinkles, pores, skin tone, and laxity.
How does Ultraformer III work?
Ultraformer is a revolutionary skin-lifting and tightening treatment that uses the gentle, safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound at a micro-focused level to create a powerful energy.
The Ultraformer works by reducing the fatty deposits in the jowl and jawline area which pull the face down. It also stimulates the growth of new collagen over time, which strengthens and tones your skin from deep within creating a lifting and a tightening effect.
What parts of the body can the Ultraformer treat?
Ultraformer III results excel the most when treating the jowl, jawline and neck. At Cheshire Lasers, we highly recommend this treatment for tightening up the jawline, to reduce sagging jowls and neck. It is especially effective in people who have heavy jowls.
The Ultraformer III can also be used to treat other areas of the body including; the abdomen, buttocks, upper arms and knees. The therapist can select various attachments to suit the skin in the treatment area.
How long does the Ultraformer treatment take?
Ultraformer has a fast shooting speed, which means a jowl or jawline treatment takes only 40 minutes. The upper neck and jowl area treated together can take about an hour.
How many Ultraformer treatments will I need?
One treatment is often enough for most people; however, you may require a second one for best results. A second treatment will usually be carried out around 5 months later. The results can last up to a year sometimes 18months, so you may decide to have further treatment when the results start to wear off.
When will I start to see results of Ultraformer?
Some people can see results immediately after a jowl/jawline Ultraformer treatment. This is due to the stimulation of heat during the treatment which can make your skin look more rejuvenated, fresher, tighter and firmer.
The ultimate results develop 60 to 100 days after the treatment when the collagen regeneration becomes noticeable. As collagen production can be ongoing, most patients will continue to see the effects of treatment improve some-time after the session.
Is Ultraformer treatment painful?
During the treatment, you will feel warm pulses of ultrasound energy being delivered deep under the skin, causing the collagen and muscle layers to contract. Some people may find this uncomfortable, but others report no pain with the treatment at all. Some people will need to take some simple painkillers before the treatment; however, this depends on the pain sensitivity level of each individual, the area to be treated and the size of the area to be treated.
What is the recovery time for Ultraformer treatments?
You can go back to work and routine life immediately after the treatment.
Does Ultraformer have any side effects?
Heat levels created by the Ultraformer device are not damaging to the surrounding tissue, as it only targets the treated area. The energy is delivered to the deeper levels of the skin, and not to the upper layers. This means there should be no visible signs on the skin’s surface after the procedure.
The most frequently reported side effects are:
- Tingling of the skin
The only other noticeable effects will be lifting and tightening.
There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so following the treatment.
A small percentage of patients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch over the treated area, but these are mild and tend to last no more than a few days.
Bruising can occur and is usually minor but can be more severe, especially in people who are prone to bruising.
A small proportion of people may experience slight tingling or tenderness in the area treated for several weeks as the growth of new collagen occurs.
Is Ultraformer safe?
Ultrasound technology has been used by medical professionals for scans including pregnancy scans as well as other indications for over 50 years.
Ultraformer has been cleared by the Korean FDA after demonstrating safety in clinical studies. Tens of thousands of treatments have been performed worldwide without any significant adverse events.
Can I receive Botox and fillers in addition to Ultraformer treatments?
Yes you can; however, we usually advise you have the Ultraformer treatment a month before you have any injectable treatments if they are in the same area.
In the past Ultraformer treatments could not be carried out directly over fillers injected in the previous three months. It now believed that it is safe to treat over fillers. However, we recommend a consultation with Dr Johnson first to make sure you are suitable. She can assess your face, what fillers you have had and where, and then decide on the best treatment plan for you.
You can have Botox on the same day if you are having the treatments in different areas. If the treatments are for the same area we normally recommend you leave a 2-week window between treatments.
Ultraformer Face Prices:
The procedure was quick and painless with instant results. Immediately my skin was tighter and brighter. No downtime was needed whatsoever, I applied makeup and returned to work the next day. Friends and work colleagues all commented on how well and fresh I looked…this was only after a day or so after the treatment. Over the following months, the appearance of my skin kept improving and my cheek areas became more ‘plump’ and my forehead tighter. The results from the full face treatment for me lasted around 10-11 months. I would highly recommend the ultra former procedure. Carrie S.
After 12 years of trying to smooth out my jawline, I have at last received a treatment which is totally amazing. A facelift, threads and expensive treatments for jowls had not helped at all. At Cheshire Lasers I was treated with the ULTRAFORMER 3 HIFU Jawline treatment and immediately noticed a difference. After 3 months the results were even more obvious and still progressing. I am delighted with my profile and can highly recommend this procedure for a great confidence boost. Lynda M aged 63.
