Ultherapy vs. Ultraformer HIFU Treatment

Ultraformer III is the newest development in ultrasound energy-based devices and provides a far more comfortable alternative to the Ultherapy treatment while being just as effective. Utraformer is based on a principle of HIFU using high intensity focused and targeted ultrasound energy to induce neo-cologenesis and skin tightening results.

Deeper skin Layers Tightening: SMAS

This non-surgical facelift works on the Muscle Fascia (SMAS) deep below the skin, which is the area surgeons tighten for face and neck lifts. Rather than surgery, the Ultraformer harnesses ultrasound technology to radiate energy to the SMAS layer to tighten, lift and plump the skin. You can see the results immediately, and the improvements continue to be seen for up to nine months as your collagen is renewed.

How does Ultraformer III work?

Four multi-depth cartridges directly transfer ultrasound energy into multiple layers of the face to trigger collagen renewal, creating a tighter and younger complexion. MMFU (micro-macro focused ultrasound) technology transfers equal distribution of ultrasound energy into the subcutaneous tissue, applying high-intensity focused ultrasound temperatures of 65-75oC. This causes micro- coagulation and subcutaneous fat micro-reduction, which in turn creates the desired non-surgical facelift. The practitioner reviews the skin condition an uses the appropriate depth for each part of the face, including the smaller harder to treat areas like the eyes.

HIFU technology is completely safe and has been used in medicine for decades. It works by contracting and shortening muscle fibres, which cause the lifting and tightening effect.

The treatment we offer lasts between 30-60 minutes and has no downtime, causing only slight redness.


Differences between ULTHERAPY and HIFU? 

We often get asked what are the differences between the two treatments? Ultherapy uses micro-focused ultrasound (MFU) beams, while HIFU stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound.

Ultherapy is designed to target and deliver focused energy to a specific skin layer, whereas HiFu treatments can also reach and destroy fat cells, leading to fat loss. 

Ultherapy face skin tightening starts with 2000-3000 pounds vs HIFU or Ultraformer just 500-800 pounds.

In Summary:

  • Skin Tightening and Fat Breakdown for Face or Body Lifting
  • SMAS (Muscle aponeurosis) lifting
  • Results lasting between 12-24 Months
  • Normally Instant results are seen, however, due to tissue remodelling best results are seen after 12
  • No downtime
