What parts of the body can the Ultraformer treat?
The Ultraformer III can treat most parts of the body including; the face, neck, abdomen, buttocks, upper arms and knees.
How long does the Ultraformer treatment take?
Ultraformer III has a fast shooting speed, which means some treatments take only 15-30 minutes. This is only possible with Ultraformer III.
How many Ultraformer Body treatments will I need?
For body contouring approximately 3 treatments are usually enough for most people; however, some people may need less and some more for best results. Treatments are usually carried out every month. It takes three months to see the best results. The results can last up to a year, so you may decide to have further treatment when the results start to wear off.
When will I start to see results after an Ultraformer body treatment?
Ultraformer III can show some immediate results as the stimulating heat can make your skin look more rejuvenated, fresher, tighter and firmer. However, ideal results come 60 to 100 days after the treatment, when the fat reduction and collagen regeneration becomes more noticeable. As collagen production can be ongoing, most patients will continue to see the effects of treatment improve some-time after the session.
What is the recovery time for Ultraformer treatments?
You can go back to work and normal life immediately after the treatment.
Is the 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.
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 targets 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 only noticeable effects will be 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. 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.
The most frequently reported side effects are:
- Tingling of the skin
Is Ultraformer safe?
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. Ultrasound energy also has a proven track record and has been used in the medical profession for more than 50 years, including pregnancy scans.
What is Ultraformer lll?
Ultraformer III is the latest non-surgical technology using High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU). It creates Micro and 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 III is a revolutionary skin-lifting treatment that uses the gentle, safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound at a micro-focused level to create powerful energy. This energy stimulates the deep structural support layers of the skin, including those areas usually focused on during surgical treatments. However, Ultraformer III does not cut or disturb the surface of the skin and has none of the risks associated with surgery.
This advanced technology is able to create a lift not only in the skin but also the deep muscle layer underneath, which was previously only reached by a surgical facelift.
The Ultraformer III also stimulates the growth of new collagen over time, to gradually strengthen and tone your skin from deep within.
How is the Ultraformer different from Radiofrequency (RF)?
Radio Frequency (e.g. Endymed, Thermaclinic) addresses issues in the superficial layers of the skin (e.g. fine lines, wrinkles, skin tone and texture). The Ultraformer addresses the deep skin layer and the foundational muscle layer that lifts and supports the skin, similar to cosmetic surgery. Therefore, the two technologies can be used together depending on your skin concerns.
