ULTRAFORMER HIFU TREATMENT – ULTRAFORMER SKIN TIGHTENING
Ultraformer is a non-surgical skin tightening treatment that incorporates high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy. This revolutionary system triggers the body’s natural regenerative process to lift and tighten the skin.
The HIFU energy targets the key structures under the skin’s surface, contracting the collagen fibres that keep the skin strong and supple. As an added bonus, the treatment also enhances collagen production to produce long-term results. Patients can now fill out wrinkles and reduce sagging skin without the need for a recovery period.
Ultraformer HIFU Treatment Results
After just one Ultraformer HIFU session, you can:
- Lift and tighten sagging, drooping skin
- Firm up the skin by increasing elasticity
- Create youthful contours by tightening the skin at a deep level
- Rejuvenate and strengthen the skin over the long term
How Ultraformer HIFU Treatment Works
The skin consists of three essential layers. The first is the superficial dermis, followed by the deeper dermis and the SMAS layer. The SMAS layer connects your skin to the deeper structures such as the muscle.
As we age, the structures that keep the skin strong and youthful start to weaken. This is mostly because collagen and elastin levels start to lessen, which affects the underlying structures. The result is wrinkled skin with a lack of youthful contours. The Ultraformer system addresses skin sagging and ageing at all three levels.
The benefits of Ultraformer sessions show up gradually over the course of several months. The skin needs time to heal and create stronger structures in order for you to see a noticeable difference. After a month or two, patients experience tighter, more toned skin, with the results lasting up to six months.
The Ultraformer HIFU Treatment
The Ultraformer system is able to produce less pain due to its rapid shot technology. It also helps increase treatment time and produces little to no side effects. The result is a quick lunchtime treatment that doesn’t require time off work. Some mild redness may remain for several hours after your treatment – this is completely normal.
What results can I expect from Ultraformer HIFU treatment?
Ultraformer results occur in two phases following your session.
- Expect an immediate tightening of your skin in the treatment area. This is due to the heat, which contracts the underlying network of collagen fibres. Strands of collagen shrink when exposed to heat, which is what creates this tightening effect.
- The HIFU energy also stimulates other cells in the treatment area, including fibroblasts. These cells are responsible for creating new, stronger collagen fibres. This effect takes place over several months, which is why the results appear slowly and gradually.
Are the results long-lasting?
After six to nine months, your Ultraformer HIFU results will peak, but this is different for every patient. The new collagen will be stronger and offer better support to your skin. When the skin is more supported, it naturally lifts and tightens your appearance, making you look much younger and healthier.
By creating a custom treatment plan that includes an Ultraformer treatment every six to 12 months, you can easily maintain your results. Patients even see additional improvements by making this a regular treatment.
While the Ultraformer system was originally used for eyebrow lifts, it can now be used on the neck and jawline too. Even areas such as the arms, buttocks, stomach and inner thighs can benefit from the tightening effects.
To date, millions of Ultraformer treatments have been carried out globally, further proving its safety and effectiveness.

Ultraformer III – Q & A:
After just one Ultraformer session, your skin will be lifted and tightened due to the increase in collagen and elastin. Patients will also see a gradual improvement in facial contours as the underlying structures strengthen and tighten.
The Ultraformer cartridges cater to a diverse range of skin profiles and patients can expect comfort throughout their session. Patients report minimal pain and discomfort during their session. Keep in mind that the experience will be different for everyone though.
Mild redness and swelling across the treatment areas is common but won’t last longer than a day or two. Temporary bruising and numbness are also possible but not as common.
The number of treatments really depends on your skin type and the specific concerns you’re experiencing. This is why a skin analysis is recommended to all patients.
