One of the first signs to betray ageing is loss of elasticity. Ageing collagen causes skin to slacken, with your face evidently less plump and facial contours are lost underneath sagging skin. Now there is a revolutionary nonsurgical treatment which prevents this process from gaining momentum: 

Ultraformer III  HIFU device exclusive to The Dr Nema Clinic.  This is the only treatment that can specifically target the deep foundation below the skin that is addressed in cosmetic surgery without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.

What sets apart Dr Nema's exclusive Ultraformer III HIFU device from other ultrasound treatments?

HIFU machines achieve a skin tightening effect through stimulating neocollagenesis in the dermis. Pulses of ultrasound energy delivered deep under the skin causes older collagen fibres to denature, triggering the body’s injury response which promotes collagen synthesis. The Dr Nema Ultraformer III achieves a more intense concentration of ultrasound energy, creating thermal coagulation points which trigger a more intense response, resulting in maximum collagen formation.

This technology has facilitated targeting the superficial musculoskeletal aponeurotic system of the face (SMAS), a deeper muscular layer in the face, which is key to achieving a lifting effect in the facial area and the neck. The Dr Nema Ultraformer III HIFU provides the only treatment to specifically target this deep foundation below the skin. The ultrasound waves can target the muscle layer causing it to contract, strengthen, tighten. Achieving an immediate lift and importantly a gradual, progressive, long lasting neck and face lift. The effect is accumulative and will improve session on session. 

How quickly will I see the results of treatment with Dr Nema Ultraformer III HIFU? 

Most patients will experience an immediate effect, with skin feeling tighter, smoother and more lifted. Optimal results are seen two to three weeks after treatment as ageing collagen is replaced with new, stronger collagen.

Is it painful?

Although some sensation can be felt during the treatment it is unlikely to be painful, with some mild discomfort as the worst-case scenario. What can be felt during the treatment is tiny amounts of concentrated ultrasound energy delivered below the surface of the skin. Any discomfort experienced is temporary and a positive sign of stimulation of neocollagenesis.

The level of discomfort can vary patient-to-patient, but we will be sure to consult with you prior to your treatment to ensure your experience is as pleasant as possible.

What are the risks?

There are some mild side effects that can occur after treatment with HIFU device. There may be a slight redness to the skin immediately after treatment will resolve within an hour or so.

In the most extreme cases, some patients report swelling, tingling sensation, tenderness and bruising on or around the treated area but these side effects will subside within a few days of treatment.

How long is the recovery period?

There is absolutely zero downtime following treatment with the Ultraformer III HIFU.  Most people can return to their regular activities immediately following the procedure. You should avoid exposing your skin to extremes of heat and cold and protect your skin with SPF. Your normal makeup regime can be followed immediately.

How many sessions will I need?

Although there will be an immediate and enduring effect after only one session with Dr Nema's Ultraformer III (HIFU), the effect is cumulative and will improve session on session.  The longevity of your results depend on a few things, including your age, skin condition, and how well you take care of your skin post-treatment. Being consistent with a good skincare routine is key for maintaining your results.  Visit our SKIN CARE SHOP to see the full list of ZO Skin Health products.

Who is a good candidate?

A good candidate for Ultraformer III (HIFU) is someone with skin that has "relaxed" to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm. A lowered brow line or sagging skin on the eyelids, for instance, is often the first sign of "maturing" skin. While Ultraformer III is not a replacement for surgery, there are many people who want some lifting but are not ready for surgery, either mentally, financially or logistically.
