The advanced Ultraformer 3 skin tightening technique offers both women and men a new option for improving the appearance of loose, sagging skin without the need for surgical intervention. Even individuals who are in the best shape of their lives can experience collections of inelastic skin affecting specific body areas, particularly the face and neck. Ultraformer 3 utilizes an innovative ultrasound technology that can enhance skin firmness and produce a more youthful appearance without requiring surgery or extensive recovery periods.
What is Ultraformer 3?
Ultraformer 3 is a non-invasive aesthetic enhancement procedure designed to lift and tighten areas of the body affected by loose, inelastic skin. This treatment involves the use of micro-focused ultrasound energy to contract collagen fibers and stimulate the growth of new collagen to help the skin renew itself. Through this innovative process, Ultraformer 3 can ultimately give the skin a firmer look and feel while reducing signs of wrinkles in the areas targeted for rejuvenation. In some cases, the skin tightening results of Ultraformer 3 can also lead to a slimmer contour in certain body areas.
Who is a candidate for Ultraformer 3 skin tightening?
Ideal candidates for Ultraformer 3 skin tightening include patients who are looking to address mild to moderate signs of sagging skin affecting the face, neck, or other areas of the body. This treatment can tighten the skin in those areas and improve elasticity to create smoother, firmer, stronger, and more youthful-looking results.
While Ultraformer 3 can be performed on a variety of body areas, it is commonly utilized for:
- Cheeks and jowls
- Eyebrow areas
- Nasolabial folds (“parentheses” lines between the nose and corners of the mouth)
- Under the chin/upper neck area
We will be happy to meet with you for an initial consultation to evaluate your skin and talk with you about your concerns. If you are a good candidate for Ultraformer 3 skin tightening, we can develop a personalised treatment plan designed to achieve your goals with the best possible results. If Ultraformer 3 is not ideal for your needs, we can talk with you about surgical or non-surgical cosmetic enhancement options available at The Layt Clinic that may present suitable alternatives.
What does the Ultraformer 3 treatment process involve?
Ultraformer 3 treatment utilizes the power of ultrasound energy to firm and tighten the skin. As we age, our skin’s natural collagen and elastin begins to break down and lose their ability to support and strengthen the skin. This gradually results in the development of sagginess and wrinkles in certain areas. Ultraformer 3 is designed to target three layers of skin: the outer layer, the deeper dermis, and the layer connecting the skin to muscular structures. A special device will be guided over the targeted areas of skin that will deliver ultrasound energy to precise depths in order to create a thermal reaction to help the collagen contract, and then stimulate production of additional collagen. This new, stronger collagen should continue to replenish and enhance the skin in the months following treatment, giving it a restored support structure and improving the skin’s firmness and tone.
The Ultraformer 3 procedure can be performed right here at The Layt Clinic. This treatment does not require surgery or general anaesthesia. Depending on the specific areas being treated, the procedure can usually be completed in less than an hour.
Is a recovery period necessary after the Ultraformer 3 procedure?
Ultraformer 3 procedures do not typically require a recovery period. Most individuals are able to resume normal daily activities immediately.
Are there side effects from Ultraformer 3 treatment?
Some redness, swelling, and tenderness in the treated areas of skin are common side effects after Ultraformer 3 treatment. These effects are often relatively mild and should subside over the next few days. In rare cases, patients may experience temporary numbness, welts, or bruising in the treatment area. It is also important to note that there is a slight risk of a burn (potentially resulting in a residual scar) from this procedure, as well as temporary nerve inflammation; however, our team is extensively trained in these procedures and the technology is quite advanced. With this combination, risks associated with the treatment can be greatly minimised.
What can I expect from the results of Ultraformer 3 treatment?
Ultraformer 3 typically creates an immediate skin tightening effect as the ultrasound energy produces a contraction of the collagen in the treatment area; however, this treatment is designed to yield results that continue to gradually improve in the weeks and months following the procedure. As new collagen grows and enhances the skin’s youthful support structure, patients should be able to see the results of Ultraformer 3 become more and more noticeable over time. Optimal results should be achieved about six to nine months after the initial Ultraformer 3 treatment. Many patients can maintain outcomes, and potentially even see more improvement, by undergoing another Ultraformer 3 treatment about once every 6 to 12 months.
