Skin Tightening

Have you always wanted a skin tightening treatment but been put off by the thought of pain or lengthy recovery periods? At The Derm Lab, we put your comfort first to deliver non-invasive, highly effective facelifts, neck tightening and more.

Tightening, lifting and contouring all in one treatment.
Beautiful, naturally.

Designed for multiple depths of face and body, the ULTRAFORMER showcases impressive clinical results for helping those achieve a more youthful complexion and ultimately turning back the clock.

Innovative ULTRAFORMER Ⅲ technology

Our Micro-Focused Ultrasound technology lifts and tightens the skin. The technique was cleared by the FDA and the TGA in 2009 and stimulates the body’s collagen production by capitalising on the body’s natural healing properties.

What can ULTRAFORMER be used to treat?

ULTRAFORMER boosts the appearance of a range of areas, including:

  • Eyebrows
  • Cheeks
  • Forehead
  • Jowls
  • Forehead
  • Chin
  • Periorbital area
  • Neck
  • Abdomen
  • Décolletage
  • Legs
  • Arms

ULTRAFORMER doesn’t just work to tauten the skin on these facial areas; it can also benefit the rest of the body, including the abdomen, legs, and arms.

ULTRAFORMER Ⅲ is a non-invasive technology which has a short recovery period, rejuvenates your face, restores natural collagen and shows clear results in as little as 1-2 weeks following treatment.

ULTRAFORMER Ⅲ is a Groundbreaking Device

This skin tightening and body contouring treatment work by targeting short pulses of ultrasound energy into the three skin layers.

The patented device uses HIFU-powered transducers, which remodel the collagen beneath the skin surface so skin appears tauter and less slack and wrinkled.

How does Ultraformer work?

  • Face Lifting & Tightening

    ULTRAFORMER technology delivers targeted bursts of energy in three layers in the skin, making the skin contract, which stimulates collagen production. The procedure lifts and tightens, creating a smoother, more youthful complexion.

    ULTRAFORMER provides a long-term solution to 99% of patients who want to treat their ageing skin.

    4MHz, 4.5mm focused ultrasound beam delivers controlled energy with precision to the focal region
  • Body Contouring

    The versatile, circular motion of the ULTRAFORMER Ⅲ 6mm and 9mm body cartridges treat large areas with precision, to permanently remove stubborn fat deposits.

    Individual results may vary – some patients may see an immediate result after treatment, while others will see gradual improvements during the eight weeks after their treatment session.

    With ULTRAFORMER , our Melbourne clinicians can deliver maximum energy levels to produce optimal results without the pain experienced by competitor machines.

    2MHz, 13.0mm focused ultrasound beam delivers high density power to the focal region.

Frequently asked questions

How does a ULTRAFORMER Ⅲ lift and contour the face and body?

ULTRAFORMER Ⅲ’s non-invasive, non-surgical technology stimulates your body’s natural regenerative process. The device’s sophisticated micro-focused ultrasound energy rejuvenates three crucial areas of your skin’s structure, with virtually no recovery time.

The powerful, micro-focused ultrasound waves lift the skin and the deep muscle layers beneath.

ULTRAFORMER lifts and tightens the loose skin of your neck, under the chin and jawline, the brow and around the eyes. It can also treat fine lines and wrinkles, along with wrinkling and sagging skin of the décolletage and body.

Is a ULTRAFORMER Ⅲ treatment right for me?

Are you concerned about wrinkles, fine lines or sagging skin on your face and neck? Are you looking for total facial rejuvenation? If so, ULTRAFORMER can renew and tighten your skin. It also contours and tightens specific parts of the body.

As ULTRAFORMER targets various depths, even deep wrinkles can be removed. Aside from a few medical contraindications, Ultraformer is ideal for all patients, of all skin types, who want to reverse the ageing process.

How long does treatment usually take?

ULTRAFORMER Ⅲ’s rapid-shot movement makes treatment precise and efficient. Depending on the area, treatment times can vary. Your entire face can be treated in 60 minutes. While treatment to individual face and body areas can last just 15 minutes.

Is the ULTRAFORMER Ⅲ treatment uncomfortable?

ULTRAFORMER  is engineered to minimise patient discomfort during treatment. This ensures maximum ultrasound emissions can be delivered comfortably, delivering optimal results.

How many treatments will I need?

This can vary, depending on the area being treated and the results you want to achieve. For facial treatment, we recommend between 1-2 treatments. For one specific body area, we recommend at least 3 treatments to achieve desired results.

Rest assured our Melbourne clinicians will discuss treatment times with you in detail during your pre-treatment consultation.

When can I expect results?

Some patients see results immediately following treatment, while most see gradual improvements from 4-6 weeks after treatment. You can expect these results to improve up to 12 weeks after your treatment.

How long will my results last?

The results of your treatment should last for 12-18 months, or even longer, in some cases. You can have a mini top-up treatment every 6-12 months to maintain these results. However, you will see the best results using an active skincare regime and avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption.

What do I need to do to prepare for my treatment?

For optimal results, we recommend men are clean shaven on the day of treatment. You don’t need to wear makeup, as it will be removed before treatment. There are no other specific requirements before your treatment.

What can I expect after treatment?

Immediately after your treatment, you can resume normal activities, as you will experience no discomfort. However, for the first 24 hours after treatment, we advise against using active ingredients on your skin. We also recommend you avoid anything too hot, such as: physical exertion, exercise, spas, saunas, alcohol, sports and the like.

You can also apply makeup immediately after your treatment.

Are there possible side effects?

While uncommon, side effects can occur. However, they are temporary and mild. Your skin may appear red from 30 minutes to a couple of hours after your treatment, but this redness usually dissipates once you leave our Melbourne clinic.

You may experience minor swelling, skin tenderness or tingling from a few days to a few weeks following your treatment session. This side effect is a good sign, as it shows the treatment is working deep within your skin.

In rare cases, some patients experience numbness, welts or temporary bruising.

As ULTRAFORMER is a heat-based treatment, there is a slight chance of burning your skin. Any nerve inflammation you may experience is temporary and will disappear within a few days or weeks after your treatment session.

If you have further questions or queries regarding your ULTRAFORMER treatment, please feel free to discuss your concerns with your The Derm Lab practitioner during your complimentary consultation.
