Ultraformer III at Kew Dermatology

Our Ultraformer III treatment harnesses high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) technology to work its magic on soft tissues like the neck, chin, face, and select body areas, resulting in remarkable outcomes. At Kew Dermatology, we blend our expertise with cutting-edge technology to offer this incredible, non-invasive treatment for skin tightening and conditioning.

 

HIFU Technology

Ultraformer III is a state-of-the-art HIFU system. It directs focused ultrasound energy deep into specific skin layers, sparking collagen production and enhancing skin tightness. Our distinguishing feature is our ability to customize treatment depths, ensuring precise targeting of various skin concerns and areas. The result? Rejuvenated appearances characterized by remodeled collagen, improved skin elasticity, and increased firmness.

What Happens During Your Treatment?

Throughout the procedure, you may experience a gentle warming sensation as ultrasound energy is administered. We apply a clear gel to the treatment area, facilitating the smooth transmission of ultrasound energy and providing an optimal surface for the treatment applicator. Any initial pinprick sensations or warmth are temporary. Subsequently, you may notice some swelling, redness, or tenderness, which are natural parts of your body’s healing process.

The treatment typically takes 45 to 60 minutes for a single area, like the face or neck. To maintain and optimize results, we recommend a structured treatment program every 6 to 12 months. Visible improvements usually appear around the three-month mark, coinciding with the gradual onset of collagen production and the natural elimination of damaged fat cells.

Areas Treated by Ultraformer III

Ultraformer III is versatile, and it’s especially popular at Kew Dermatology for delicate eye treatments, as it can be safely applied closer to the eye than many laser modalities. Additionally, it’s highly effective for:

– Refining the jawline

– Addressing wrinkles around the mouth

– Enhancing cheek contours

– Combating jowls

– Improving fat deposits under the chin

– Tightening neck skin

– Elevating the brows

Post-Treatment Expectations

After your treatment, you may experience sensations similar to mild sunburn for a brief 1-2 hour period, characterized by redness and warmth. Some treated areas may feel a bit tender or bruised. Immediate skin tightening occurs, thanks to the Micro-Focused Ultrasound’s ability to contract collagen fibers. Further improvements and collagen remodeling continue for up to 3 months following your treatment.

Ultraformer III treatment entails minimal downtime. While immediate effects are noticeable, the most significant and long-lasting results develop gradually, peaking between six and nine months post-treatment. The newly generated collagen exhibits exceptional strength and a youthful structure. To sustain and enhance these benefits, we recommend a regular treatment regimen every 6 to 12 months, with each session offering incremental improvements.
