7D Ultraformer MMFU
7D Ultraformer MMFU is a non-surgical 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, resulting in collagen stimulation and non-invasive tightening of the skin.
7D Ultraformer MMFU explained
7D Ultraformer MMFU is designed to lift facial tissues, tighten the skin, and remove unwanted fat. What makes it different from other HIFU and skin lifting treatments is that it has 7 interchangeable cartridges. These deliver focused ultrasound energy at various energy depths to treat different areas of the face and body.
The seven cartridges are all assisted by Micro and Macro Focused Ultrasound (MMFU) technology and are specifically designed for various applications.
How does 7D Ultraformer MMFU work?
It delivers focused energy to the three important layers of the skin: the papillary or superficial dermis, the deeper dermis, and the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS layer) – the area that connects the skin to muscular structures underneath.
It uses Micro and Macro Focused Ultrasound (MMFU) technology, which lets the energy be evenly distributed into the different layers of skin and body tissues without harming the outer layers. Micro Focused energy targets the superficial tissue layers, while Macro Focused delivers energy to the deeper layers of the tissue.
The effective delivery of deep heating to the desired layer results in a thermal injury. This then causes the collagen to contract, as well as produce new and stronger collagen over time. The new collagen stimulation provides long-term tightening and firming of the skin. 7D Ultraformer MMFU can:
- Lift or tighten loose/sagging skin
- Decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Define areas like the jawline
- Enhance skin elasticity
How does it treat the face?
7D Ultraformer MMFU uses various processing depths, depending on the targeted area. Four types of depth are used for treating the face and visible signs of aging.
- 1.5 mm (epidermis)
- 2.0 mm (superficial dermis)
- 3.0 mm (deep dermis)
- 4.5 mm (SMAS)
These multi-depth cartridges directly transfer ultrasound energy into various layers. This triggers collagen regeneration for a tighter and more youthful complexion.
Patented MF2 cartridge
The 2.0 mm cartridge has 2 patents and was specifically developed for delicate areas around the eyes. This probe also targets and treats the narrow and sensitive regions including the forehead, crow's feet, and neck.
For treating fat deposits and contouring the body, three types of depth are used:
- 6 mm
- 9 mm
- 13 mm
These three macro-focused cartridges deliver an equal distribution of ultrasound energy into the subcutaneous tissues in different areas of the body. This then induces contraction and naturally disposes of stubborn fat cells to tighten and contour the body.
What are the benefits of the treatment?
Ideal candidates can enjoy the following benefits:
- Lifted and tightened sagging skin
- Increased smoothness of the skin
- Smaller outlines and sharper contours in the treated areas
- Enhanced and rejuvenated skin appearance
- Ongoing results, about 6 to 9 months post-treatment
What are the treatable areas?
- Face (including around the eyes)
- Upper arms
What results can you expect?
You can see visible changes immediately following treatment. Improvements in skin tone and texture continue over three to six months.
Are treatments painful?
Patients report feeling minimal pain with slight discomfort to the face or body. These sensations, however, subside immediately after the treatment.
How many sessions are needed?
This depends on your goals. For addressing sagging skin, you may need about two to three sessions, scheduled one month apart. But it can still depend on the laxity of your skin and your response to the ultrasound treatment. This varies from patient to patient.
How long do the results last?
The results can last from several months to a year afterward. And depending on the age and sagging skin, it may also be necessary to consider one to two annual touch-up treatments to maintain the results.
Are there any side effects?
You may experience mild redness and swelling in the treatment area that can last for a few hours to a few days. Some patients may also experience temporary bruising that may last for about two to four weeks.
Who is an ideal candidate for 7D Ultraformer MMFU treatment?
Eligible candidates include patients who are worried about and want to improve:
- Fine lines and wrinkles on the face
- Loose or sagging skin
- Skin elasticity
- Stubborn belly fat
- Love handles
