Ultraformer Micro-focused Ultrasound
Micro-Focused Ultrasound is the newest energy modality in the development of non-invasive skin tightening procedures for the face, neck and body. It targets a number of problem areas, including the difficult-to-treat sub-mental zone, i.e., the area under the chin. It can also be used for skin tightening on small problem areas of the body and limbs.
Ultraformer’s highly-focused ultrasound energy works at optimal temperatures and skin depths. This effectively stimulates collagensis and contracts the supporting tissues for multi-layered improvement and natural looking results.
ULTRAFORMER technology utilises thermal energy generated by microfocused ultrasound waves.
Ultraformer uses tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin through the body’s natural healing response—without surgery or downtime.
WHAT IS ULTRAFORMER?
Ultraformer introduces the next generation non-surgical face lifting, tightening and contouring system that delivers natural looking and long-lasting results without the downtime.
Ultraformer utilises the most advanced Micro-Focused Ultrasound technology in the market, capable of dermal and deep dermal micro heating as well as SMAS contraction for a multi-layered lifting and tightening effect. The highly-focused energy heats targeted areas to temperatures of 60-70° C, the ideal range to denature collagen and facilitate micro tissue contraction.
ULTRAFORMER: VISIBLE DIFFERENCE THAT’S MORE THAN SKIN DEEP
- Uses Micro-focused Ultrasound (MFU), the most advanced ultrasound technology available for non-surgical face lifting and skin tightening.
- Excellent results for face lifting, skin tightening, wrinkles, pores, V-line forming, jowl line, cheek shaping, skin tone improvement, and choller and laxity improvement.
- Targets the dermis and deeper supporting tissues for maximum collagen rejuvenation.
- Non-invasive, with no downtime.
- Targets hard-to-treat areas on the face, neck and body.

How does it work?
During Ultraformer treatment, low amounts of Micro-Focused Ultrasound energy are delivered into precise skin depths, without damaging the surface of the skin.
The energy heats the targeted areas to 60-70°C, the ideal range to denature collagen and facilitate tissue contraction. This stimulates the body’s regenerative response, increasing collagen production through the dermal, deep dermal and SMAS layers to restore more youthful structure and a toned and tighter appearance to the skin.
The result, over time, is natural looking and long-lasting skin lifting, tightening and rejuvenation – without the downtime of surgical treatment.
Three separate cartridges target three critical layers:
- Upper dermis at 1.5mm
- Dermis at 2mm
- Lower dermis at 3mm
- SMAS at 4.5mm
The degraded collagen in the target areas is heated to coagulative temperatures of 60-70°C, shrinking the tissues and inducing phagocytosis, the process that clears out the redundant cellular debris. This in turn stimulates the fibroblasts to produce new collagen fibres, regenerating, strengthening and lifting the tissue, and restoring a more youthful support structure to the skin.
Ultraformer is particularly beneficial for hard-to-treat areas of the neck and face that do not respond easily to traditional treatment methods. As the new collagen regenerates and grows, the structure regains its support and fullness, and the skin surface is restored to a more youthful appearance.
What are the clinical results?
Clinical evaluation has demonstrated that one treatment can lead to a noticeable amount of tissue lift over the ensuing three to six months. Patients experience no downtime or major recovery process. Patients having Ultraformer treatment on the eyebrow area experienced eyebrow lifts of up to 6mm, giving the face a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
How non-invasive is Ultraformer?
Ultraformer is completely non-invasive. Because the micro-focused ultrasound waves are able to penetrate to the deeper layers of skin structure without damage to the surface of the skin, Ultraformer is able to provide excellent non-surgical skin lifting and tightening.
Ultraformer involves minimal treatment and recovery time, as well as significantly less discomfort than a surgical face-lift. Procedures can be completed in as little as 20-30 minutes.
