As we age not only does our skin start to sag but the fat pads in the face migrate down creating jowls and further exaggerating the drooping of the skin.
The Ultraformer III is a true evolution in non-surgical skin tightening and face lifting. This High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) device performs the same procedure a cosmetic surgeon would do but without the scalpel and the associated downtime. Ultraformer III is also a much more comfortable alternative to the Ultherapy treatment yet is as effective. This treatment is between 30-60 minutes and has no downtime, causing only slight redness.
Ultraformer III works on the Muscle Fascia (SMAS) deep below the skin, which is the area surgeons tighten for face and neck lifts. Instead of surgery, the Ultraformer harnesses ultrasound technology to radiate energy to the SMAS layer to tighten, lift and plump the skin. What’s more, treatment takes just under an hour and results are seen immediately, while the improvements continue to be seen for up to 9 months as your collagen is renewed.
Four multi-depth cartridges directly transfer ultrasound energy into multiple layers of the face to trigger collagen renewal for tighter, younger complexion; while MMFU (micro-macro focused ultrasound) technology transfer an equal distribution of ultrasound energy into the subcutaneous tissue, applying high-intensity focused ultrasound at temperatures of 65-75°C. This causes micro-coagulation and subcutaneous fat micro-reduction which in term creates the desired facelift. The practitioner reviews the skin condition and uses the appropriate depth for each part of the face, including the smaller harder to treat areas like the eyes.
Ultrasound technology is completely safe and has been used in medicine for decades; it works by contracting and shortening muscle fibres, which causes the lifting and tightening effect.

The Aesthetics Lab unique Ultraformer III protocol which begins with a peel and LED light therapy to ensure the skin is optimally receptive to the treatment. After the LED treatment your aesthetician will apply a clear gel to the specified area and the treatment will begin. Up to four multi-depth cartridges directly transfer ultrasound energy into multiple layers of the face to trigger collagen renewal for tighter, younger complexion; while macro-focused cartridges transfer an equal distribution of ultrasound energy into the subcutaneous tissue of multiple body areas, inducing contractions as well as naturally disposing of stubborn fat cells for contouring purposes. During the procedure, you may notice a slight prickling sensation. Once the Ultraformer III procedure is complete, the gel will be removed and an SPF will be applied.
