Elite Cutis is the only cosmetic clinic to provide Ultraformer treatment in Greater Springfield area.

What is HIFU?

HIFU treatment uses ultrasound to lift and tighten a number of problem areas, including the lower face, under the chin, and neck. It can reduce wrinkles around the eyes, mouth and cheeks. It can also be used for skin tightening on small problem areas of the body.

During Ultraformer treatment, low amounts of Micro-Focused Ultrasound energy are delivered into precise skin depths, without damaging the surface of the skin. The MFU energy creates heat, which stimulates tissue remodelling. The result, over time, is a natural skin lifting, tightening and rejuvenation.

APPLICATIONS FOR FACE

Ultraformer works for face lifting, skin tightening, winkles, pores, V-line forming, jowl line, cheek, skin tone improvement, and overall laxity improvement.

APPLICATIONS FOR BODY

Whole Body contouring such as décolletage, arm, abdomen, flank, thigh, axilla, lower leg, ankle and back. ULTRAFORMER is the World’s Only Micro and Macro-Focused Ultrasound System. Multi-functional cartridges delivering focused ultrasound energy at various depths – 1.5mm, 2mm, 3mm, 4.5mm, 6mm, 9mm and 13mm allows treatment on both face and body areas with optimal speed, comfort and efficacy for collagen stimulation, dermal micro-coagulation, and subcutaneous fat micro-reduction. High-peak power means ultrasound energy is delivered effectively into the target area without heat diffusion to surrounding tissue.

This produces the best clinical results, faster treatment times and increased comfort during treatment. Coagulative temperatures of 60-70°C contracts and activates the skin’ immune healing process, making way for collagen regeneration and remodelling for that lifted, tighter look that everyone is raving about.
