HIFU-Ultraformer III (Skin Tightening & Lifting)

HIFU utilizes high-intensity focused ultrasound energy


HIFU (High Energy Focused ultrasound) is a relatively new cosmetic skin lifting and tightening treatment that utilizes high-intensity focused ultrasound energy. The aesthetic treatment is a painless, non-invasive replacement of surgical means of face lifting and contouring. The process results in firmer skin by inducing stimulation of collagen production. The HIFU treatment is safe and effective and was approved by Food and drug administration early in 2008. The process first focused on lifting brows and is later successful in treating wrinkle and fine lines resulting in an ultimate facelift. The early uses of HIFU treatment were the correction of wrinkles in the upper chest and neck. After several clinical trials, the HIFU treatment was approved successfully to provide overall facial rejuvenation, contouring, lifting, and tightening. 

Advance aesthetics by Dr. Elita Lemoni promises its clients to provide safe uses of HIFU Ultraformer III and is effectively replacing the risks and side effects associated with the surgical facelift. But, unfortunately, the process is most effective in younger patients, and it’s not much beneficial to restore severe cases of wrinkles and skin sagging. 

What is Ultraformer III – HIFU? 

Ultraformer III is a nonsurgical skin tightening treatment that utilizes high-intensity ultrasound energy to trigger the body’s natural regenerative process, thus lifting and tightening the skin. Ultraformer III has approved a global leader in performing multiple depths ultrasound procedures. The device helps in providing customized face and body contouring, lifting, and tightening solutions to reform youthful appearance. The process is equally effective for improving fine lines, wrinkles, pores, skin laxity, and overall rejuvenation.

How Does Ultraformer III – HIFU Work? 

HIFU Ultraformer III is a revolution in aesthetic sciences that utilizes micro-focused powerful ultrasound energy at the micro level to get the desired outcomes of tightening, lifting, and contour. The safe, practical, and time-tested ultrasound energy works on fat cells at the jowls and jawline area that pulls the skin downward. The critical target of HIFU Ultraformer III is a contraction of collagen fibers that causes lifting and tightening of the skin. The ultrasound energy also creates new collagen over time to produce long-term results.

What are the Benefits of Ultraformer – III HIFU? 

Following are the benefits you can get after a single session of Ultraformer – III HIFU treatment;

  • Lifting of drooping and sagging Skin
  • Tightening of wilting skin of face neck and upper chest
  • Increases skin elasticity 
  • Provides deep contours of collagen fibers and helps in skin tightening and lifting
  • Long term skin rejuvenation and strengthening
  • Wrinkles reduction
  • Improves eyebrow and eyelid aesthetics
  • Décolletage tightening
  • Skin smoothening
  • Improves signs of aging
  • V- Line contouring
  • Minimal downtime
  • No damage to the skin surface

How does Ultraformer III – HIFU Treatment Work?

The entire infrastructure of skin consists of three layers below the surface layer of the skin, the superficial dermis, deeper dermis, and SMAS, i.e., a superficial musculoaponeurotic system which connects skin with the muscles below it. The building blocks of skin are collagen, elastin, and extrabrillar matrix, which are responsible for the youthful outlook of the skin. However, as you age, the superficial and deep dermis loses its strength, and the superficial musculoaponeurotic system deprives your ability to support your skin. 

The high-intensity focused ultrasound energy works with geometric precision to the various skin depths and aids in cellular regeneration. The Ultraformer III provides a specific temperature required to heat target cells to induce thermal injury and contracts collagen. The micro-focused ultrasound energy also produces new and stronger collagen over time. The process targets the correct depth and benefits in creating more youthful, supple, and firm skin with tightening and contouring effects. The process ends up in toned skin with the reversal of aging signs and skin sagging.

What is the Procedure of Ultraformer III – HIFU? 

Before finalizing you for the treatment, Dr. Elita Lemoni will evaluate your skin concerns and design a customized plan according to your aesthetic needs and outcomes. The initial consultation for the first Ultraformer III session is essential for making helpful recommendations. The process is initiated by applying a local numbing cream forty-five minutes before treatment to ease the discomforts of the procedure. 

As the Ultraformer device is held close to your skin, it emits warm pulses of high-intensity ultrasound energy. The thermal energy required to produce desired outcomes may cause slight discomfort, depending on the areas under treatment and your tolerance to bear the heat. Therefore, Dr. Elita always helps her patients to develop a plan suitable for providing maximum comfort. In the next step, the concentrated ultrasound waves deliver their effects into the multiple skin layers, thus inducing lifting, tightening, and contouring effects by contracting the collagen fibers and production of new collagen over time.   

Ultraformer III treatment is a lunch break session to resume your everyday activities before and after treatment. You may feel a mild inflamed sensation for one to two hours after the treatment. 

What to Expect After the Ultraformer III – HIFU Treatment? 

You might expect following after the treatment

  • Slight bruising
  • Swelling 
  • Redness at the target areas
  • Heat
