An Overview of Skin Tightening Using Ultraformer MPT: Answering All Your Burning Questions

Saggy skin can add years to a person’s face, and is one of the most common skin concerns that individuals have as they enter their 40s. However, many experts believe that skin ageing actually begins around the age of 25. A variety of factors, including ageing, sun exposure, sudden weight loss, and poor nutrition can cause loose skin. In addition, your skin may also be prone to sagging if you tend to smoke or consume alcohol often. This premature ageing occurs due to a depletion of naturally occurring proteins, collagen and elastin, that are responsible for keeping your skin firm, bouncy, and youthful. This is where skin tightening treatments like Ultraformer MPT come into play by inducing the body’s natural healing mechanism to increase the production of these lost proteins. This blog post will cover all your burning questions on Ultraformer MPT and how it works to replace damaged skin cells with more vibrant, healthier, and tighter skin.

What Are the Main Characteristic Signs of Skin Ageing? 

Skin free from wrinkles and fine lines is often considered a sign of youth. However, other signs may also be indicative of ageing, and they include the following:

  • Uneven skin tone
  • Rough skin texture
  • Age-related pigmentation
  • Dry, dull, and thin skin
  • Enlarged pores

Can Loose Skin Be Prevented? 

Yes, there are a few ways in which you can slow down the progression of skin ageing – avoiding extreme sun exposure (applying ample sunscreen), hydrating adequately, following a healthy diet, and staying fit. Adopting a good skin care regime, and refraining from habits like smoking and drinking alcohol may also help you maintain your skin’s elasticity and vitality. However, loose skin may still appear with age, and specific aesthetic treatments like Ultraformer MPT will be required to bring your skin back to its youthful state.

What is Ultraformer MPT and How Can It Tighten My Skin? 

Ultraformer MPT is a novel and updated version of the HIFU treatment that employs a higher frequency of ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin. Delivered in short pulses (micro pulsed technology) to enhance precision, it works by penetrating the surface of your skin to heat it and stimulate collagen production. The triggering of the collagen regeneration process allows newer and firmer skin to develop as a result of the controlled tissue damage caused by Ultraformer MPT. The tightened collagen fibres improve the skin elasticity and create a lifting effect, leaving you with a refreshed and smoother appearance.

What Are the Benefits of Undergoing This Skin Tightening Treatment? 

Apart from skin lifting and tightening, there are many other benefits associated with Ultraformer MPT, including the following:

  • Non-invasive and versatile
  • Contours and rejuvenates
  • Targets hard-to-reach areas
  • Reduces wrinkles and fine lines
  • Natural and long-lasting effect
  • Quick and painless procedure
  • Reduced risks with minimal downtime
  • Comfortable and convenient

What Areas Can Be Treated by Ultraformer MPT

While this device is suitable to treat many areas of the body, it is most commonly used on the face, eyes, decolletage, and neck. Other areas that can be treated include the forehead, cheeks, and jawline.

What Happens During This Treatment and What to Expect? 

Ideally, your treatment process should be commenced with a consultation to discuss your goals and expectations. At Lux Medical Aesthetic Clinic, our experienced medical practitioner, Dr Kellyn Shiau, will also go over the vital specifics of the procedure and carry out a detailed assessment to determine your suitability.

Your treatment will begin with the targeted area being cleaned well, along with an application of a topical anaesthetic to enhance your comfort level. Specific points will then be marked to deliver the ultrasound energy in a more effective manner.

Following the treatment, your results will be monitored, and some important aftercare instructions will be given to you. You may also be required to come in for some follow-up sessions to determine if the desired outcome was achieved and if further treatment is necessary.

Is This Treatment Safe, and Are There Any Side Effects? 

Absolutely! It is generally well-tolerated and considered a safe and effective treatment due to the non-invasive nature of the Ultraformer MPT device. However, you may notice a few minor side effects like bruising and swelling – these are temporary and usually resolve quickly. Having said this, it is crucial to note that the safety of this procedure may depend on other factors, including the patient’s health condition and response to the treatment, as well as your doctor’s experience and qualifications. Whether the clinic you choose complies with safety regulations will also play an important role in determining the success of the treatment.

How Long Does the Ultraformer MPT Treatment Take to Complete? 

The treatment typically takes around 15 to 25 minutes to complete, but about 15 to 20 minutes might be needed for the numbing cream to settle. Therefore to ensure your comfort, at Lux, we usually set aside one hour for the whole session.

How Long Will My Results Last and Will They Look Natural? 

The effects of a single session typically last around a year, but it is generally recommended that maintenance sessions be carried out every 9 to 12 months. Although there might be an immediate effect after the treatment, it may take some time for the overall result to become apparent. If you are concerned about how artificial your results will be, do not worry. At Lux, we believe in enhancing your natural beauty and make every effort to make you look and feel your best.

How Much Will This Treatment Cost Me? 

Our Ultraformer MPT treatment prices start from $800, but we have a comprehensive range of non-invasive facelift procedures, including Ultraformer 3, Ultherapy, and other aesthetic treatments to attain a youthful look.
