We are very excited to let you know about our fantastic new skin tightening system – ULFIT! It will lift, tighten and contour your face and body, and results in a “non-surgical facelift”! If you have wrinkles, crepey skin, fine lines or sagging skin on your face and neck, this machine will help!!! It can also help with pore reduction, improve scarring and skin texture.
It has great results for women and men in all skin types with a very low risk of side effects. It uses micro and macro focused ultrasound energy to precisely treat the area in the deep, medium and surface layers of the skin for maximum results by going over the skin with 3 different depths of cartridge. For the face the deepest is the 4.5mm cartridge targets the SMAS layer – which is the layer that is targeted by surgeons when performing a face-lift. Your treatments are very much tailored according to the condition of your skin.
You will see immediate results, and continued improvements to 3 months, when the final result can be seen. If your skin has only mild laxity then you would need only one treatment a year. Those with more laxity may need a second treatment after 3 months.
Most patients need 1-2 treatments to see significant results, depending on their skin laxity and concerns. It has minimal downtime with most patients resuming their normal activities straight after treatment.
When doing a body treatment the depth of cartridges used depends on the thickness of the skin/fat pad. In addition, we have special body macro focused cartridges that go to a depth of 9mm or 13 mm.
How does it work?
We use high quality equipment using the latest ultrasound techology that uses both micro and macro focussed high intensity ultrasound energy.
When we do our treatment shots we cover the area at 3 different levels of the skin depth to get the best results for collagen stimulation, remodelling and tightening. For the face we first do the treatment to target the SMAS (Superficial muscular aponeurotic system) which is the fibrous layer that covers the muscles deep in the face, which is also a layer targeted by plastic surgeon’s when doing a facelift. The next level we treat with ultrasound energy shots at the 3.5mm depth again producing collagen remodelling and skin tightening at that depth. Finally, our next depth is the level targeted by the Fraxel laser which target’s closer to the skin to allow us to ‘iron out’ or reduce fine lines and wrinkles and produce collagen remodelling at that level. Therefore with 3 depths of skin treatment you get what we term 3D skin remodeling.
The produce of new collagen (neocollagenesis) develops over time with improvements showing at 2 months with best results being apparent at 3 months. The collagen and tightening process continues to the 12 month mark after treatment.
Is the treatment right for me?
If you have wrinkles, fine lines or sagging skin on your face or neck, Ulfit treatment can help to tighten and rejuvenate your skin for those who do not want to have surgery. Ulfit can also help to contour and tighten specific body areas. With the exception of a few medical contraindications, Ulfit is appropriate for all patients with aging concerns.
