WHICH AREAS CAN I TREAT?
You can target individual areas, which is an advantage to HIFU. Usually, it’s not possible to treat around eyes and mouth due to a large handpiece but Ultraformer have specifically developed the perfect shape handpiece to target those stubborn areas prone to lines and wrinkles.
If overall skin tightening and rejuvenation if skin health alone is what you’d like to achieve, this Ultraformer / HIFU are an excellent choice.
We can target brow lifting, jowl line lifting, nasolabial fold reduction, periorbital wrinkle reduction, working up to a full face treatment, or face and neck treatments..
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Ultraformer III uses High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) to heat targeted areas, creating a coagulating effect to the deeper layers of the skin, these are the layers a surgeon would usually pull and tighten in a surgical facelift procedure, but without the risks associated with surgery.
Acoustic energy is applied to the area you’d like to improve, this reaches the subcutaneous layer. The highly focused acoustic energy creates thermal coagulation zones at 3 different depths followed by a wound healing response resulting in new collagen, therefore, providing a longer-term tightening of the skin..
You’ll see long lasting lifting and tightening and a reduction of facial lines and wrinkles for some time after the session. The strictly focused application means that results are even, there will be no visible manifestations on the skin’s surface after the procedure, only the lifting and tightening effects will be visible.
This treatment is excellent for a wide range of conditions, if you have a specific question, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

One of the best benefits of HIFU is that there is no downtime to this treatment, meaning you can carry on your usual day-to-day activities, and apply make-up straight after treatment should you choose to!
Our key advice post-treatment is to wear SPF to protect the skin, we recommend Heliocare SPF 50, leave a 2-week gap in between having other facial treatments such as Microdermabrasion or Laser Hair Removal, and ensure you are continuing to use recommended products your consultant has recommended for best results
