Ultraformer lll High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)

Ultraformer lll is the latest 3rd generation High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) Device (examples of 1st generation HIFU device is Ultherapy)

Ultraformer lll can be used in:

  • Face Treatment e.g Face lift ,V-line, jowls, skin tightening, wrinkles, pores, cheeks and double chin.
  • Body Contouring of chest, arms, abdomen, flank, thighs ,lower legs and axilla.


Ultraformer lll uses High Intensity Focused Ultrasound energy to target 3 different layers of the skin.

1) Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System (SMAS) 4.5mm deep
This is the same layer of tissue that the plastic surgeons will pull tight in a face lift. The HIFU energy will heat up and stimulate collagen and elastin production, thereby tightening the underlying skin. This causes an immediate skin lift.

The skin continues to improve over the next 2-3 months due to continuing collagen formation.

2) Lower Dermis (3 mm deep) just above the SMAS layer
HIFU will promote regeneration of collagen and elastin to improve wrinkles and give a lifting effect.

3) Upper Dermis (1.5 mm deep)
The generation of collagen and elastin at this layer will improve fine wrinkles and tighten skin pores. Uneven skin tone and texture will also improve.


Ultraformer lll therapy can be used on different parts of the body (Forehead, Upper and lower face and neck). It is used to treat the following problems:

  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Drooping eyebrows (Eyebrows lift)
  • Crow’s feet (fine lines around the eyes)
  • Nasolabial folds (smile lines)
  • Facelift
  • Skin laxity
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Jowls
  • Blurred jaw lines (V shaping of face)
  • Double chin
  • Large pores
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Neck lines


Ultraformer lll HIFU is a non invasive, non surgical method to reduce fats. It targets the fat layers at 3mm , 6mm and even 9mm deep.

HIFU is concentrated in the fat layers leading to thermally induced fat cell necrosis.

This permanently gets rid of the fat cells selectively in your problem areas.

Over time the body naturally removes the fat tissues and the collagen contracts resulting in a slimmer waist line in 8-12 weeks. Studies show an average waistline reduction of 1 inch or 2.5 cm  after one single treatment.

Applications for Body:
  1. Abdominal Fats
  2. Love Handles
  3. Flanks
  4. Axilla
  5. Arms
  6. Thighs
  7. Buttocks
  8. Lower Legs
  9. Post Pregnancy Bulge

  • Non invasive
  • Relatively painless. Most patients can tolerate the slight pain easily. However local anaesthetic cream can be used to make the treatment more comfortable
