Our NEW Ultraformer Skin Needling treatment is for the ultimate in skin rejuvenation and re-texturisation. Firstly, Ultraformer uses HIFU for skin tightening, followed by SkinPen Micro Needling to induce collagen remodeling to improve fine lines, pigmentation and acne scarring.
We use two different devices to deliver the best results – the Ultraformer and the SkinPen.
Starting with a thorough cleanse of the face, followed by marking in white pencil as a treatment 'map'. Next the Ultraformer device is applied to the skin, warm pulses of ultrasound energy are delivered, causing the deep muscle layer to contract.
Next the nurse will perform the SkinPen, moving the hand-piece around the face, gently stamping the skin to stimulate cell production and skin repair.
These two popular treatments focus on different layers of the skin. Combining them offers the benefits of both treatments in one procedure. The Ultraformer treatment works on the deeper structures of the skin to improve collagen, skin firmness and tightness, while SkinPen treats the top layers of the skin to improve skin texture, pigmentation, fine lines and scarring.
Ultraformer is a revolutionary skin tightening technology with no downtime, using the power of ultrasound (also known as Ultherapy or HIFU High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) to lift the skin and the deep muscle layer underneath. The Ultraformer uses deep dermal micro-heating and contraction for a multi-layered lifting, tightening and rejuvenation effect. It promotes maximum collagen production resulting in plumper, more youthful skin.
SkinPen is a medical micro-needling (or skin needling) device. Micro-needling is a form of collagen induction therapy, using tiny needles to stimulate the body’s natural wound healing response. In this response, new tissue and skin cells are formed, producing significant improvements to the tone and texture of the skin.
Temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching on the treatment area. If you have swelling you can apply an ice pack for a brief period to help with discomfort. Rest assured our registered nurses will advise what you can expect in your pre-treatment consultation.
Unlike other micro-needling treatments, SkinPen does not promote bleeding. Redness is normal, indicating a good result and will subside quickly.
Ultraformer Needling is not recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding.
After the Ultraformer you will notice immediate tightening of the skin in treated areas, as heat from the ultrasound contracts the network of collagen fibres. This will continue to improve over time resulting in rejuvenation of the skin as the support structure is filled out.
You may notice some redness and dryness after your SkinPen, some tingling and the sensation of heat, similar to that of mild sunburn. This will subside within 48 hours. The results become evident after a week, with improvement in skin tone and texture. Effects on pigmentation and scarring will continue to improve with every treatment.
There are no special requirements for Ultraformer Needling. You can exercise and bathe as usual after your treatment and you should avoid the following for at least 24 hours:
It is also recommended to avoid the following for two weeks:
Exposure to any of the above may cause temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching on the treatment area. If you have swelling you can apply an ice pack for a brief period to help with discomfort.
We always recommend the use of sunscreen to prevent sun damage to the skin. Sunscreen with SPF 30 or above should be used from three days after your treatment. If you are under the sun for prolonged periods of time, sunscreen needs to be reapplied at least once every two hours.
Without local anaesthesia, we would rate the pain of Ultraforner Needling at around 3/10. With local anaesthesia, the pain rating is reduced to around 0.5/10.
Whilst we have seen amazing results from this treatment, please know that results vary and we cannot make guarantees. We recommend coming and speaking to our registered nurses for an in-depth consultation. They will discuss in detail how the treatment works, whether it will be right for your skin type and the expected results in line with your skin goals.
