Ultraformer skin tightening uses ultrasound technology to address loose skin on the face and neck. In just a few short treatments with the adjustable device, our highly trained aesthetic therapists can provide a lifting effect with reduce facial fine lines and wrinkles.
Ultraformer skin tightening technology
Ultraformer uses HIFU (high intensity focused ultrasound) technology for non-invasive skin lifting on the face, neck, and decolletage for lasting tightening and wrinkle reducing results. The device itself has both micro and macro settings to deliver ultrasound energy to different layers of the skin that can differ in intensity to suit individual needs, ranging from 1.5mm to 13mm depth in the dermis to trigger a process of tightening.
During treatment, heat is created in the dermis that works to encourage collagen production. Collagen is a vital protein that keeps skin taut and firm that is lost through the natural ageing process, so when it is stimulated using Ultraformer, it has a tightening effect that develops over time. Treatment time is very low, taking up to an hour, and can be entirely tailored to your needs with as few as one treatment yielding results, though this will depend upon your indication. This will be discussed within your initial consultation, wherein you can express your expectations for treatment with your assigned clinician, who will assess you and create a bespoke treatment plan to fit your unique profile.
Facial skin tightening
As well as the face, Ultraformer skin tightening can be used on the decolletage, neck, and jawline to address skin laxity and tone by firming the skin for a more youthful appearance without surgical intervention.
This non-invasive alternative to a facelift has minimal downtime, and avoids the use of scalpels, with ongoing results for collagen production and skin tone. The heat that is created during treatment does not cause any damage to surrounding tissue, as it is only delivered to the target area in a focussed application that avoids the epidermis.
Am I suitable for ultraformer skin tightening?
We advise that Ultraformer works best on those who are experiencing skin laxity or sagging on the face and jaw, with some fine lines and wrinkles. Every patient we see has to have an initial consultation before any treatment goes ahead to determine suitability for treatment. This also allows you to talk to your clinician regarding your expectations for treatment, and to ask any questions you may have.
Consultation with our aesthetic therapists costs £50, but this fee is entirely redeemable against the price of any treatment you go on to have. You can book your consultation by contacting us via email on [email protected], telephone on 0207 034 5999, or by logging an enquiry through our website.
