Our skin is comprised of multiple layers from the superficial epidermal layer right down to the deeper SMAS layer which sits just above the facial muscle. Over time our skin produces less collagen and loses elasticity causing wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin.
Using transducer cartridges, the Ultraformer III delivers precise pin pricks of ultrasonic energy to the 3 critical layers of the skin without damaging the surface. This ultrasound energy heats the tissue causing an inflammatory response which in turn activates our immune healing process, stimulating collagen production and renewal. This has the effect of lifting, firming and tightening the skin.
The 1.5mm cartridge targets the superficial epidermis layer to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. The 3mm cartridge will boost collagen in the mid dermis layer, plumping and improving skin texture and reducing skin imperfections. The 4.5mm cartridge targets the deeper SMAS layer which connects the skin to the muscles, lifting and tightening the skin. The 2mm cartridge is a macro-focused cartridge which has a wider shallower beam targeting the superficial layer and allowing us to get in to hard-to-reach areas. This multi-pronged approach is very effective at lifting, plumping and tightening the skin giving a natural non-surgical face-lift.

The Ultraformer III 6mm, 9mm and 13mm cartridges allow us to precisely target and heat the deeper adipose tissue (subcutaneous and visceral fat) to between 65 and 75 degrees, breaking it down into liquid form which is then eliminated naturally from the body through the lymphatic system – literally melting the fat away. This allows us to contour the body and reduce or eliminate problem areas. We can also use the shallower cartridges to tighten and firm skin on the body as well as the face.

The medical-grade Ultraformer III is able to penetrate beyond the superficial layers of the skin to the deeper layers targeting tissue all the way down to the SMAS (superficial musculoaponeurotic system) layer. The SMAS layer is composed of collagen and elastin fibres similar to the dermis of the skin however it has more durable holding properties, and less delayed relaxation after lifting procedures, than the dermis of the skin. Therefore the SMAS is a desirable target depth for non-invasive skin tightening procedures.
Because the Ultraformer III transducer cartridges are micro-focused, we can treat areas of the skin with far more precision than previous technology which means treatments are more focused and effective.
In addition, the ultrasonic energy heats the tissue to between 65 and 75 degrees which is more effective at accelerating the regeneration process compared to other technologies which can only reach the superficial layers of the skin and typically achieve temperatures between 30 and 40 degrees.
The Ultraformer III is perfect for anyone who is not suitable or willing to undergo cosmetic surgery. An Ultraformer III treatment can help lift, firm and rejuvenate your skin, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, firming jawlines, smoothing out marionette lines, eliminating fat cells and tightening loose skin on the face and body.
Prior to treatment your skin will be cleaned, and a set of clinical photos will be taken. We will mark up the treatment area and apply ultrasound gel to the skin. Once the treatment starts you may feel little pinpricks of heat in the skin but it shouldn’t be unbearable. Different people have different tolerances - if you have particularly sensitive skin, you can take a paracetamol half an hour prior and we can apply topical anesthetic, however most people find the treatment completely comfortable.
Ultraformer treatments take between 30 - 90 minutes depending on which or how many areas are being treated.
The cost varies depending on the areas you are having treated. We have discounted packages for more than one area. Your therapist will discuss your areas of concern during your consultation and provide you with a customised quote.
Most patients will need only one treatment with a top-up treatment every 12-18 months to maintain their results.For moderate to severe skin laxity we may recommend a treatment once a month for 3 months with a top up treatment annually after that. Your therapist will advise the most appropriate treatment for your skin type.
Anyone with concerns about skin laxity, fine lines and wrinkles or areas of subcutaneous fat. An Ultraformer III treatment is perfect for anyone who is not suitable or willing to undergo cosmetic surgery.
Although side effects are uncommon they can occur. They are usually temporary and mild in nature.Your skin may appear red for a few hours after Ultraformer treatment.You may experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness for a few days after treatment. Rarely, some patients may experience temporary bruising, welts or numbness.
We offer a complementary, no-obligation consultation so you can get to know us and we can discus your concerns and what you’d like to achieve. Often there is more than one way to tackle a problems area and together we will customise a treatment plan that suits you and your goals.
