Face & Neck Lifting
What is non-invasive face and neck lifting?
Unlike other areas of the body, our facial skin is attached directly to our muscles. As we age, these muscles begin to tire and droop causing skin to sag and wrinkle. Exposure to environmental elements, gravity, and lifestyle factors like smoking and poor diet also affect our skins’ elasticity. Another common effect of ageing is hooding of the eyelids from loss of elasticity in that delicate area. Loss of collagen and elastin fibres causes the padded support below your eyebrows to droop and shrink. Another side effect of ageing is that the skin around and underneath the jawline begins to sag. This is caused due to the prominence of the platysma muscles, accumulation of the fat and saggy skin on the neck.
Non-invasive face and neck lifting procedures use laser and ultrasound technologies to rejuvenate and tighten the skin whereas traditional surgical face and neck tightening procedures are invasive, painful and require a lengthy recovery period. Ultrasonic aesthetic devices are designed to effectively lift and tighten sagging skin under the chin, along the jawline, on the neck, brow and décolletage, as they enable practitioners to see and then treat the deepest support layers of the skin – usually only addressed in cosmetic surgery – without the need to cut or even disrupt the surface of the skin. At the same time, the skin is gradually retexturised as the production of new collagen and elastin is stimulated, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and promoting firmer and more youthful-looking skin.
While a traditional facelift surgery cannot be completely replaced by a non-surgical facelift treatment, the non-invasive alternative definitely produces impressive results and can boost your self-confidence.
What are the results like?
Evaluation has shown that after the first treatment there can be a noticeable amount of skin lift over the next three to six months with the patient experiencing no downtime or major recovery period. Patients having ULTRAFORMER treatment saw eyebrow lifts up to 6 mm. This gives the entire face a more youthful appearance, and will seem like you’ve had a good night’s sleep, erasing that tired, weary look.
What are the treatment options available?
The ULTRAFORMER is the world’s first and only micro and macro-focused ultrasound system for advanced non-surgical face and body lifting, tightening and contouring. ULTRAFORMER uses advanced patented elliptic transducers to deliver fast and consistent energy throughout treatments, improving patient satisfaction on both comfort and results.
Highly focused ultrasound energy heats targeted areas to coagulate temperatures at 60° – 70°C, to denature collagen and facilitate tissue contraction, this allows the patient to notice improvements even after the first treatment. The ultrasound waves generate heat to contract collagen and skin connective tissue down to the muscle level and also stimulate skin rejuvenation and regeneration.
According to Dr Adrian Lim 85% of patients that he treated using ULTRAFORMER noticed an immediate improvement in facial and neck contours post treatment.
7 multi-functional cartridges deliver focused ultrasound energy at various skin depths– 1.5mm, 2mm, 3.5mm, 4.5mm, 6mm, 9mm and 13mm. This allows treatment on both face and body areas with optimal speed, comfort and efficacy for SMAS contraction, collagen stimulation, dermal micro-coagulation, and subcutaneous fat micro-reduction
There have been over 1 million successful ULTRAFORMER treatments performed worldwide so it is no wonder that ULTRAFORMER is the number one treatment choice for patients who are unwilling or unable to undergo surgical skin lifting and tightening.
