Ultraformer MPT HIFU Guide Singapore

Introduction to Ultraformer MPT HIFU Treatment

The Ultraformer MPT HIFU Treatment represents the newest generation in the Ultraformer series, following the Ultraformer 3. This advanced High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) device is designed to enhance precision and efficiency in non-invasive skin tightening and lifting procedures.

Ultraformer MPT (Multi Pulse Technology) utilizes focused ultrasound waves to target deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting tissue regeneration. This process results in a natural lifting and tightening effect, reducing signs of aging and improving skin texture with minimal downtime. Compared to previous generations, the Ultraformer MPT offers superior energy delivery and customizable treatment settings, allowing for tailored treatments that meet the specific needs of each patient.

How Ultraformer MPT HIFU Works

Micro and Macro Focused Ultrasound (MMFU): Ultraformer MPT utilizes MMFU technology, which includes both micro-focused and macro-focused ultrasound waves. This dual approach allows for precise targeting of various skin depths, effectively stimulating collagen production and tissue regeneration.

Collagen Stimulation at Different Skin Layers:

  • Superficial Dermis: The micro-focused ultrasound waves create thermal coagulation points in the superficial layer of the skin. This stimulation enhances collagen production, leading to improved skin texture and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Deeper Dermis: Macro-focused ultrasound waves target the deeper dermal layers. This deeper penetration helps tighten and lift the skin, addressing more significant sagging and enhancing overall skin firmness.
  • Subcutaneous Layers: For areas with minor fat deposits, the Ultraformer MPT can target subcutaneous layers, heating and reducing the number of fat cells, which further improves facial contouring.

Multiple Cartridges for Tailored Treatments: Ultraformer MPT is equipped with various cartridges that can deliver energy at different depths, ranging from 1.5mm to 13mm. These cartridges allow practitioners to customize treatments based on the specific needs of each patient.

  • 2.0mm and 3.0mm cartridges: Ideal for superficial tightening, firming, and wrinkle reduction.
  • 4.5mm cartridge: Targets the SMAS (superficial muscular aponeurotic system) layer, crucial for lifting and tightening deeper facial tissues.

Ultra-Booster Handpiece: The Ultraformer MPT includes advanced handpieces such as the Ultra-Booster. This handpiece enhances the delivery of ultrasound energy and aids in the penetration of topical skincare products such as serums and ampoules. During the facial treatment, the handpiece uses ultrasound energy to temporarily create micro-channels in the skin, allowing active ingredients to penetrate deeper into the dermal layers. This process increases the effectiveness of the skincare products, leading to improved hydration, nourishment, and overall skin health.

Additionally, the results continue to improve over the next three to six months as collagen production increases, leading to further skin tightening and lifting.
  4. Long-Lasting Effects: The effects of Ultraformer MPT HIFU can last up to a year or more, depending on individual skin conditions and aftercare. This long-lasting outcome makes it a cost-effective solution for maintaining youthful skin.
  5. Versatility in Treatment Areas: Ultraformer MPT HIFU is effective for treating various areas of the body, including the face, neck, décolletage, jowls, nasolabial folds, and under the chin. This versatility allows for comprehensive aesthetic enhancements tailored to individual needs.
  6. Enhanced Comfort: Compared to traditional HIFU treatments, Ultraformer MPT is designed to be more comfortable. The advanced technology allows for faster treatment sessions, reducing discomfort and improving the overall patient experience.
  7. Precision and Safety: The Micro Pulsed Technology (MPT) used in Ultraformer MPT ensures precise targeting of ultrasound energy to specific depths within the skin. This precision minimizes the risk of damage to surrounding tissues, enhancing the safety and effectiveness of the treatment.
  8. Natural-Looking Results: Ultraformer MPT HIFU stimulates the body’s natural collagen production, leading to gradual and natural-looking improvements in skin firmness and texture. This results in a more youthful appearance without the "overdone" look often associated with surgical procedures.
  9. Customizable Treatments: The device comes with multiple handpieces and interchangeable cartridges, allowing practitioners to customize treatments based on individual skin types and concerns. This customization ensures optimal results for each patient.
  10. Suitable for Various Skin Types: Ultraformer MPT HIFU is suitable for a wide range of skin types and conditions. It is particularly beneficial for individuals with mild to moderate skin laxity and minimal sun damage.

Ultraformer MPT HIFU Undereye Treatment

The Ultraformer MPT HIFU treatment can help in addressing signs of aging around the eyes, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. The treatment utilizes a 2.0mm cartridge, specifically designed for the delicate undereye area. Here's how it works:

Precise Energy Delivery: The 2.0mm cartridge, also known as the MF2 handpiece, delivers focused ultrasound energy at a depth that is ideal for treating the thin skin around the eyes. This precision allows for targeted collagen stimulation without damaging the surrounding tissues. The narrow and slim design of the MF2 handpiece enables it to reach and treat the contours and narrow regions around the eyes effectively.

Collagen Stimulation: The focused ultrasound energy generates thermal coagulation points in the skin, stimulating the production of new collagen. This helps to tighten and lift the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improving overall skin firmness. Increased collagen production also helps to thicken the skin, making eyebags and dark circles less noticeable.

Ultraformer MPT HIFU for Double Chin

The Ultraformer MPT HIFU treatment is also used in reducing the appearance of a double chin. Utilizing High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) technology, this treatment targets and reduces submental (under chin) fat while tightening the skin, offering a more defined jawline and improved facial contour.

How It Works: Ultraformer MPT HIFU uses micro-focused and macro-focused ultrasound waves to deliver precise energy pulses into the subcutaneous fat layers under the chin. This energy causes thermal coagulation, which not only melts the fat cells but also stimulates collagen production and skin tightening. This dual action helps to contour the jawline and eliminate the double chin appearance without the need for surgery.

Treatment Experience with Ultraformer MPT HIFU

Initial Consultation: The treatment experience with Ultraformer MPT HIFU begins with an initial consultation. During this session, our doctors will assess the patient's skin condition, discuss aesthetic goals, and determine the suitability of the treatment. This is also an opportunity for the patient to ask any questions and express any concerns they might have. The doctor will also explain the procedure in detail, set realistic expectations, and provide a personalized treatment plan.

Preparation: Before the treatment, the patient's face is thoroughly cleansed to remove any makeup, oil, or impurities. This step is crucial to ensure that the ultrasound energy can penetrate the skin effectively. After cleansing, a numbing cream is applied to the treatment area for approximately 30 minutes. This helps to minimize any discomfort during the procedure, although Ultraformer MPT is generally designed to be comfortable for most patients. The numbing cream ensures that even those with sensitive skin can experience the treatment with minimal discomfort.

The Treatment Experience:

  1. Application of Ultrasound Gel: An ultrasound gel is applied to the treatment area to facilitate the smooth movement of the handpiece and improve the transmission of ultrasound waves into the skin.
  2. Using the Handpieces and Cartridges: The practitioner uses the Ultraformer MPT handpieces and various cartridges to deliver focused ultrasound energy at different depths (2mm, 3mm, 4.5mm). This multi-depth approach targets various layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and achieving a lifting and tightening effect.

Sensations During Treatment: Patients typically feel a sensation of warmth and tingling as the ultrasound energy is delivered to the skin. Some areas, particularly those closer to the bone, might feel more intense. However, the overall discomfort is minimal, and many patients find the procedure quite tolerable.

Post-Treatment: Immediately after the treatment, some patients may experience mild redness and swelling in the treated areas. These side effects are temporary and usually subside within a few hours to a couple of days. There is no significant downtime, and patients can typically return to their normal activities immediately.
