Ultraformer III is the world’s leading system for ultrasound-enhanced lifting, tightening, and contouring. As it uses both macro-focused and micro-focused ultrasound energy, this treatment is referred to as HIFU – high-intensity focused ultrasound. By stimulating collagen fibers, it promotes long-term growth of collagen for a natural, lifted, tightened appearance. Although HIFU cannot replace surgical facelifts, it has become a popular choice for patients who do not wish to undergo surgery. The HIFU method can also be applied to young adults in order to stay ahead of the game as they age.
Skin tightening using ultrasound is considered noninvasive, allowing you to return to your normal routine immediately. One of the most common side effects is redness after the treatment. Patients may report tingling, swelling, or tenderness to touch, but these are typically mild and temporary.
People often ask, ‘Does the treatment hurt?’ Depending on how much heat is present, the level of discomfort may vary. For the best results, we must be able to make use of the maximum amount of heat energy possible and appropriate for the specific area to be treated. A cool gel is applied before and is soothing to the skin.
