Are you interested in undergoing a facelift or neck tightening but worried that the procedure will be invasive, painful or difficult to recover from? A skin tightening procedure provided by The Derm Lab Brisbane clinic may be just what you’re looking for.
Skin tightening is performed using Micro- and Macro-Focused Ultrasound technology, which is capable of neck and eyebrow lifts, submental rejuvenation, and a host of appearance-boosting facial procedures. Having been approved by the TGA and FDA in 2009, the treatment has been providing fantastic results for patients for almost a decade.
The groundbreaking technology that comprises ULFIT’s tightening treatments works wonder for the face and neck as it helps tauten the skin. Indeed, the Macro-Focused and Micro-Focused Ultrasound technologies take advantage of the body’s natural ability to heal wounds in order to encourage the production of new collagen, thereby tightening the skin.
There are a number of facial and non-facial areas that can be treated using ultrasound technology, including:
The great thing about opting for ULFIT is that it requires only a short recovery period and is very simple to use. What’s more, its fantastic ability to restore natural collagen means that results should start to show within as little one to two weeks.
ULFIT helps to restore youth and beauty, as well as redefine your body’s natural contours, thanks to its smart technology. The HIFU-powered transducers used to precisely remodel collagen and improve the appearance of wrinkled, slack skin are patented, making them a sought-after technology.
* Individual results may vary
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.
The versatile, circular motion of the Ultraformer's body cartridge treats 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.
Engineered with endless capabilities offering endless combinations of treatment regimens, the Ultraformer is suitable for patients with the following concerns:
Ultrasound energy equipped multi-depth cartridges of the Ultraformer only target specific layers of skin without damaging nearby tissue.
The Ultraformer is performed by laboriously-trained practitioners that can assure a professional standard of care and clinical expertise.
Face & Body
ULFIT’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.
ULFIT lifts and tightens the loose skin of your neck, under the chin and jaw line, 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.
Are you concerned about wrinkles, fine lines or sagging skin on your face and neck? Are you looking for total facial rejuvenation? If so, ULFIT can renew and tighten your skin. It also contours and tightens specific parts of the body.
As ULFIT targets various depths, even deep wrinkles can be removed. Aside from a few medical contraindications, ULFIT is ideal for all patients, of all skin types, who want to reverse the ageing process.
ULFIT’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.
ULFIT is engineered to minimise patient discomfort during treatment. This ensures maximum ultrasound emissions can be delivered comfortably, delivering optimal results.
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.
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.
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.
Cluederm™’s unique treatment will help you lose inches and remove stubborn fat deposits.* ULFIT’s high-intensity ultrasound vibrates fat cells against each other, allowing them to liquefy and shrink.
The powerful energy delivered through a handheld device, allows our skilled Melbourne clinicians to cover wider areas of the body in a shorter period.
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.
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.
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 ULFIT 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.
