Ultrasound energy is a commonly used modality in non-invasive skin tightening. It works by using a device that deposits said energy below the surface layers to gently heat the tissues. This causes the cells to experience cellular damage, which also stimulates the body’s creation of new collagen. The result is tighter skin with fewer wrinkles over time.
At Cutis, we have a similar device in the form of 7D Ultraformer. It is a non-surgical treatment designed to tighten the skin, lift facial tissues, and remove unwanted fat. 7D Ultraformer is worth considering if you’re worried about apparent signs of aging and want a non-invasive solution to lift and tighten your face.
If this is the first time you’ve heard of 7D Ultraformer and are wondering how it can give you a more youthful complexion and appearance, read on.
7D Ultraformer MMFU is a non-invasive treatment for facial lifting, skin tightening, and body contouring. It uses micro and macro focused ultrasound (MMFU) technology to effectively heat and target different layers of the skin. This results in collagen stimulation and non-invasive tightening of the skin.
One thing that makes 7D Ultraformer different from other high-intensity focused (HIFU) devices is that it has seven interchangeable cartridges. These deliver ultrasound energy at various depths to different areas of the face and body or three important layers of the skin: superficial dermis, deeper dermis, and superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS layer).
How it works
7D Ultraformer is a HIFU device that uses micro and macro focused ultrasound (MMFU) technology. This allows the energy to be evenly distributed into different layers without damaging the surrounding tissues. Micro-focused energy targets the superficial tissue layers while macro-focused energy treats the deeper layers.
Deep heating to the right layers results in a thermal injury that induces a buildup of new collagen fibers. The new collagen stimulation offers non-invasive firming and tightening of the skin. You can turn to 7D Ultraformer to:
- Lift or tighten sagging skin
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Improve skin elasticity
- Treat sensitive and narrow regions around the eyes, forehead, and mouth
- Define areas like the jawline
How it lifts and tightens the face
As previously mentioned, 7D Ultraformer has various processing depths. For treating the face and visible signs of aging, four types of depths are used:
- 1.5 mm – for toning or targeting the epidermis
- 2.0 mm – for wrinkle erasing
- 3.0 mm – for tightening or stimulating continuous collagen regeneration
- 4.5 mm – for lifting (targeting the SMAS) and firming
These cartridges directly transfer focused ultrasound energy into various layers, triggering collagen regeneration for a tighter and more youthful complexion. They can help treat or improve the following concerns:
- Fine lines (crow’s feet)
- Forehead wrinkles
- Frown lines
- Mouth lines
- Eyebrow (lifting)
- Jowl line
- Double chin
- V-line forming
- Skin tone
- Neck wrinkles
The 2.0 mm or patented MF2 cartridge is specifically developed for sensitive and delicate areas. This cartridge has a narrow focus that can treat the eyes, mouth, and forehead. It can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the mentioned areas, as well as help improve other eye area issues, including eye bags and dark circles.
If you’re worried about lines, wrinkles, and dull skin tone, the 7D Ultraformer MMFU can help address these concerns. The multiple-depth cartridges are designed for the contours of face and neck areas to tackle sagging skin and help with wrinkle reduction and collagen regeneration.
What results to expect
You may be able to see initial changes after the treatment, but significant results appear over two to three months as new collagen forms. Improvements in skin tone and texture also continue over three to six months. Suitable candidates can enjoy:
- Increased skin texture or smoothness
- Lifted and tightened sagging skin
- Sharper outlines or contoured treated areas
- Rejuvenated skin appearance
- Continuous results (six to nine months post-treatment)
The results can last from several months to a year afterward. It is also recommended to consider one to two annual touch-ups depending on the age and condition of the skin. When it comes to side effects, you may experience mild redness and swelling in the treatment area, but these are temporary and can last from a few hours up to a few days.
