Do you want the benefits of a facelift without having to undergo an invasive procedure? HIFU facelifting is an innovative treatment that can tighten and lift the face for a more youthful appearance. There are two popular HIFU facelifting devices – Ultherapy and Ultraformer. At Skintech, we offer Ultherapy in Melbourne and Adelaide that can assist with both skin tightening and anti-aging. We also offer Ultraformer treatment at our Box Hill clinic in Melbourne.

What is Ultherapy/Ultraformer?

Ultherapy and Ultraformer are two popular TGA approved HIFU devices. Ultherapy and , Ultraformer treatment are forms of HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) treatments that use concentrated ultrasound energy to tighten and sculpt the face and neck through collagen production and tissue rejuvenation. Our Ultherapy and Ultraformer HIFU therapy in Melbourne and Adelaide is quick, painless, non-scarring, and effectively tightens ageing skin to create a more youthful look.

How Ultherapy/Ultraformer Works

Ultherapy and Ultraformer HIFU treatments deliver focused ultrasound energy at precise depths and temperatures to initiate neocollagenesis without disrupting the surface of the skin. This energy jump-starts the collagen building process to replace old, aging collagen with fresh, new collagen. Real-time imaging enables micro-focused ultrasound energy to be precisely delivered to specific areas on the face, neck and décolletage for safe and optimal results.

HIFU Treatments FAQs
Is Skintech operating an authentic Ultherapy device?

We currently offer the latest Ultherapy technology which is both FDA and TGA approved. Our clinics can be found listed on the official Ultherapy Australia website. You may visit https://ultherapy.com.au/clinic-locator/ and search “Skintech” to verify. We also ensure that we use authentic Ultherapy cartridges and have the device serviced by the company provider themselves.

There are many versions of HIFU machines used for HIFU treatments in Melbourne. While some of them come from reputable companies (e.g. Ultraformer), many are unfortunately knock-offs that are not TGA-approved. Over the years, we have discovered clinics offering HIFU treatments at unrealistic prices, claiming that they offer similar results to Ultherapy. Ultherapy remains as the gold standard for HIFU skin tightening treatments trusted by medical professionals around the world. Ensuring that you are receiving an authentic Ultherapy treatment at a trusted skin tightening clinic is critical for your safety and peace of mind.

How long does an Ultherapy or Ultraformer treatment take?

The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes. This treatment time might be extended if the client requests to take a break in between for a more comfortable experience, which we are happy to accommodate. To be safe, please set aside at least 2 hours on the day for HIFU face lifting at our Melbourne or Adelaide clinic.

Will I need to take time off?

Our Ultherapy and Ultraformer HIFU in Melbourne or Adelaide requires no downtime. After your procedure, you can resume your normal activities immediately without having to follow any special post-treatment measures. You may experience some redness and swelling, however this will subside in a couple days. Please keep this in mind if you have any special events to attend, although most of our patients find that it is sufficient to apply mineral makeup to cover up if needed. If you have any concerns, please feel free to speak to your Skintech professional during your consultation for more clarification.

What does the Ultherapy treatment feel like?

During your Ultherapy treatment, you will be lying down as the device handpiece delivers ultrasound energy into the deeper layers of your skin intermittently. A cooling ultrasound gel is used and you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the heating sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered, and is an indication that the HIFU facelifting procedure is working. Most, if not all, of our patients are able to tolerate the treatment well, but we can always take breaks in between if required. Taking some paracetamol before the treatment is also an option to help create a more comfortable experience.

When will I see results? How long will they last?

The neocollagenesis process takes place over 2-3 months, or even up to 6 months post treatment, so your results will develop over that time. However, through HIFU reviews in Melbourne, some clients have reported starting to observe some skin tightening straight after the procedure due to the heat energy. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but your natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside. Results will typically last 12-18 months, although we do have patients (especially younger ones) who say that it is longer. Every patient’s biology and anatomy is different, so your Ultherapy experience may be unique to you.

How many treatments will I need?

Most patients only need one treatment for Ultherapy / Ultraformer at our Melbourne or Adelaide clinic. However, based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and the individual’s collagen-building process, some patients benefit from additional treatments. Because skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help patients keep pace with the body’s natural aging process. We generally advise patients to come in once a year for a maintenance session in order to upkeep optimal skin tightening results. In addition, we may recommend pairing HIFU treatments with other treatments such as lasers, threads and radiofrequency to enhance the effect over time.

There are many factors that come into play when it comes to skin ageing. There is no one-size-fits-all solution. During your consultation, our team of cosmetic doctors, cosmetic nurses and skin therapists will be able to recommend the best treatment plan for you based on our professional training.
