How It Works

There are several ways to lift skin on the face. Surgery by way of a facelift, injectable treatment with anti wrinkle injections and laser therapy with Fraxel or Pixel devices are just some of the methods used at Melbourne Institute of Plastic Surgery to rejuvenate the skin and produce a younger appearance.

Skin tightening is also possible through ultrasound technology with the use of Ultraformer. The nonsurgical contouring system lifts the skin to reduce the appearance of natural ageing. With micro heating, Ultraformer targets the dermal layer of skin to induce the production of collagen.

Thermal energy is one of the most effective methods for stimulating the body’s natural healing system which is precisely what Ultraformer provides. The treatment heats the skin to temperatures of 60-70 degrees Celsius — the ideal temperature for collagen production and tissue contraction.

By heating the dermal and deep dermal layers of skin, Ultraformer is able to reverse wrinkles, close large pores and improve the structure of the cheeks, jowls and choller. Your skin will also become tighter and your complexion will brighten.

Micro focused ultrasound technology makes it possible for the treatment to target specific regions afflicted by facial aging. Ultraformer penetrates the skin with precision to produce an enhancement that is unique for the contours of your face.

Who Is It Suitable For?

Ultraformer will benefit patients who are looking for a nonsurgical way to enhance their skin. Without incisions, anesthesia or downtime, Ultraformer provides a means of improving the elasticity of your skin without causing any significant discomfort or inconvenience.

If you are experiencing a mild to moderate degree of facial ageing and are not ready to undergo surgery, Ultraformer will be the ideal solution. Although the ultrasound treatment uses a significant amount of heat to improve the underlying layers of your skin, the treatment is precise and will not inflict any damage to the epidermis.

Additionally, Ultraformer can easily target hard to reach areas around the face and neck that would otherwise be neglected due to the surface area of larger devices. Ultraformer contains three cartridges that are designed to treat several different areas of the face.

How Many Treatments Are Recommended?

Ultraformer patients will usually see the results of their treatment after a single session but because the production of collagen is slow to take hold, you will likely experience the full effects of your procedure after three to six months. Immediately after your first treatment session, you can return to work or your daily routine. You will not have to recover for any length of time and should experience very minimal side effects.

Your physician at Melbourne Institute of Plastic Surgery can help you determine whether Ultraform is a viable treatment option. By examining the quality of your skin and reviewing your treatment goals, you can decide whether you would like to receive treatment.
