Ultraformer III Non-Invasive Face Lift in Winston Hills, NSW
What is Ultraformer?
The Ultraformer III is easy to incorporate into your daily routine, as it requires no downtime, no anaesthetics, no incisions, and no limitations on your daily activity. Ultraformer III is the perfect “lunchtime” procedure.
Ultraformer treatment uses micro fused ultrasound to lift and tighten a number of your problem areas, including the lower face, under the chin, and neck. It can reduce wrinkles around the eyes, mouth and cheeks. It can also be used for skin tightening on small problem areas of the body, such as sagging eyebrows, or turkey neck.
During Ultraformer treatment, low amounts of Micro-Focused Ultrasound energy are delivered into precise skin depths, without damaging the surface of the skin. The MFU energy creates heat, which stimulates tissue remodelling. The result, over time, is a natural skin lifting, tightening and rejuvenation.
What can I expect in the treatment?
Prior to treatment your skin will be cleaned, and a set of clinical photos will be taken. We recommended taking some paracetamol an hour before your appointment to help with any discomfort you might feel. You can expect to experience some discomfort, a tingling and tightening feeling as the ultrasound energy is delivered.
