How does the Ultraformer work?
July 1, 2019The Ultraformer works by using focused ultrasound energy, or heat energy to coagulate temperatures to the deeper layers of skin. This happens at between 60 – 70 degrees Celsius and contracts the existing collagen fibres that support your skin. This encourages the growth of new collagen over the following weeks and months. The Ultraformer is known for being effective in tightening and lifting around the jawline, cheekbone and eye areas. It is also proficient anywhere on the face and body including the abdomen or belly. After an Ultraformer treatment, the patient may have red skin which lasts anywhere up to a few hours. Some patients experience minor bruising and swelling which can occur for up to several days after the procedure. If you want to find out more on if the Ultraformer is painful, click here. Indications of a successful procedure include slight numbing or tingling of the skin anywhere between a week to a few months after the treatment. Because the skin is tightening, the collagen is regenerating and your treatment area should be looking firmer, smoother and more youthful. Tightening can be seen immediately after the treatment with the effects continuing to improve over the following months. Clinics and physicians are getting some truly impressive results with the Ultraformer, and it is described by some as the non-surgical facelift. So how does the Ultraformer work?
