PSH: How does the Ultraformer III work?
ENRICH: The Ultraformer III is an innovative treatment using precise, micro-focused ultrasound waves concentrating on the soft tissue of the neck, chin, face and some areas of the body to stimulate tightening and strengthening of the supporting tissue for a more youthful appearance, without suffering the invasiveness of a surgical procedure, and with no downtime. In fact, Ultraformer offers a non-surgical, non-injection facelift.
The first ultrasound device of this kind on the market was Ulthera. It was a breakthrough and initially unique, but, in Dr Rich’s opinion, it is now not only second generation, as the Ultraformer is much more effective, cheaper for the patient and can treat many more areas of the body. Clinical evaluation has shown that after the treatment, there is perceivable tissue lifting over the next three to six months, without any downtime.
