7 reasons why you should choose Ultraformer
SMAS-lifting is an innovative method of tightening the skin of the face and body without surgery. The effect on the skin is with the help of ultrasound and, unlike other options for non-surgical lifting, it allows you to work deeper layers of skin.
During the operation of the device, the impact of ultrasound on the superficial musculo-aponeurotic system (Superficial Musculo-Aponeurotic System “SMAS”) allows to achieve the effect of tightening the skin.
The musculoskeletal system consists of elastin and collagen fibers, which line the muscles, including the muscles of the face, creating a kind of framework. But over time, this framework loses its functionality leading to sagging of some parts of the face and the second chin, drooping eyelids, cheeks, eyebrows, and other “charms” of age-related changes in the face.
To eliminate such defects it is necessary to reduce the volume and tighten the layer of SMAS. Previously, this could only be done on the operating table under general anesthesia during surgical facelift. Now you have the opportunity for non-surgical ultrasonic SMAS-lifting of all structures that are prone to aging.
The device for ultrasonic SMAS lifting was first developed in 1999 and during its existence the technology has been used in more than a million patients worldwide.
However, in 2015, the Korean company producing medical equipment Classys (stock index 214150: KS) introduced to the world the fourth generation of the device for SMAS lifting – “Ultraformer 3”, which eliminated all the shortcomings of its predecessors. The following year, the Australian Agency for Therapeutic Goods and Services (TGA) approved a new device for SMAS lifting – Ultraformer 3. Later, this device became widely used in beauty salons in France, Italy, Great Britain and other developed countries.
Why is Ultraformer the most rational solution, if you have decided to perform the procedure of non-surgical SMAS lifting for yourself?
1. Evidence base of the method
To date, 8 clinical trials have been conducted in more than 159 patients of different ages and with varying degrees of facial and body skin prolapse. Clinical studies of the efficacy of Ultraformer 3 have been performed in patients in Italy, Korea, India, Poland, Germany and Australia. It is worth noting that some studies have confirmed that the result of the use of Ultraformer 3 was not inferior to the already well-studied Althera (Ulthera Systems).
2. Not just the face
In Ultraformer 3, in addition to microfocused ultrasound, which is already known to us from the Altera device, a new technology has been implemented, namely macrofocused ultrasound, which allows ultrasound to penetrate to a depth of up to 17 mm. This means that now, you have access to non-surgical lifting not only of the face but also of other parts of the body. In addition, in addition to tightening the skin, it allows to achieve lipolysis in the areas of “fat traps” (second chin, areas on the inner surface of the arms and thighs, in the armpits, sides of the abdomen and back, as well as above the knees). To date, there are no analogues that would provide such a depth of penetration. With the advent of Ultraformer, you can afford to improve the condition of not only the face but also the body.
3. Certified and original equipment
Ultraformer is an original device that has all the necessary quality certificates and meets the safety requirements for equipment of this class, unlike the Chinese counterparts (they usually imitate another reputable manufacturer Ulthera Systems), which is crowded with the market. Efficacy and safety of such devices have NOT been confirmed in clinical trials.
In turn, thanks to an impressive evidence base, the use of Ultraformer 3 is approved by the regulatory authorities of the United States (FDA), Australia (TGA), EC (Europe CE), Korea (Korean FDA) and Singapore (HSA).
The use of Ultraformer 3, which is approved by reputable certification bodies, allows you to get really impressive results of rejuvenation without surgery. While the procedures performed on the simulation devices significantly increase the risk of unsatisfactory results and side effects.
4. High speed of operation of the Ultraformer
One of the “chips” of the device for SMAS lifting Ultraformer is that it has a high speed. This significantly reduces the time of the procedure. The high speed of the device in turn brings us to the next advantage of the device…
5. Significantly less discomfort and pain
As mentioned in the previous paragraph, the duration of the SMAS lifting procedure is significantly reduced, which means that it creates less discomfort and pain for the patient. In the World market, the manufacturer positions Ultraformer 3 as a high-speed, low-pain MFU device for skin tightening (high-speed, painless device for skin tightening)
6. Lower side effects
Yes, high speed is not only precious time and less discomfort, it is also less unwanted side effects. According to clinical studies, the use of Ultraformer was accompanied by a very low frequency of adverse reactions. Effects such as soreness, swelling, redness went away on their own, without requiring special care for several weeks after the procedure.
7. The cost of the procedure
Agree, this is an important factor when choosing a method of skin tightening. Ultraformer 3 is a truly innovative technology that allows you to perform the procedure at a reasonable cost. This low price is due to the lower cost of the procedure compared to other original devices for SMAS lifting.
With the benefits of Ultraformer, everything is clear. Does he have any shortcomings? Some experts attribute the weaknesses of Ultraformer 3 technology – the lack of a screen showing the structures of the face under the skin, as it is believed that this screen allows you to see (experts prefer the term “visualize”) a layer of superficial musculoskeletal system (SMAS) and to affect only him. But how important it is to be able to act at a certain depth remains open. The fact is that Ultraformer in any case, affects all possible variants of SMAS. Therefore, he will cope with his task in any case.
As for the statement that only visualization does not allow to involve important vessels and nerves. This statement is not entirely correct, because the face is, in fact, permeated with blood vessels, and whatever the visualization, the impulse will still pass through the vessels in any case with or without visualization.
With regard to nerve fibers, according to the protocol over the nerves, the manipulator of the device for SMAS lifting still does not pass.
Thus, Ultraformer is considered a worthy alternative to surgery, and is the most rational method for facelift, brilliantly balancing between efficiency, safety, comfort and cost of the procedure. Procedures performed with the Ultraformer device are considered to be one of the most popular among hardware cosmetology services. However, in any case, remember that only a doctor can assess whether this procedure is right for you, taking into account the nature of the indications, contraindications of the method, as well as the condition of your body.
