Frequently Asked Questions
What areas does Ultraformer treat?
Ultraformer treatment can be used to improve the appearance of sagging skin on the cheeks, chin, eyebrows, and other areas of the body. It can also be used to tighten the skin on other parts of the body, such as the chin, nose, and mouth.
Are there any conditions that Ultraformer does not treat?
Ultraformer’s Micro-Focused Ultrasound is tailored to address underlying skin layers; it cannot treat superficial issues like sun damage, pigmentation, rosacea, veins/capillaries, acne, or acne scarring.
What results can I expect from Ultraformer treatment?
Ultraformer treatment has two phases: tightening of the skin and lifting of the skin. The tightening is caused by heat contraction of the collagen fibres, which shrink when exposed to Ultraformer. Micro-focused ultrasound also stimulates fibroblasts to make new, stronger collagen, which gradually lifts the skin over time.
Are the results long-lasting?
Results from Ultraformer peak 6-9 months post-treatment, with newly formed collagen being stronger and more youthful than it was before. This strengthens skin and helps fight the signs of ageing. To keep results, treatments should be done every 6-12 months, with each one bringing more improvement.
What to expect during and after your Ultraformer treatment
Ultraformer is a highly efficient treatment, lasting approximately 45 minutes for most treatments. You can expect to be back to your normal routine immediately after treatment.
