Ultraformer III - HIFU Treatments

HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is the latest non-surgical technology. Known within in the industry as the “No Knife Facelift” it really does give the surgical comparison a run for its money!

These are increasingly popular for our clients as there is NO RISK, NO DOWNTIME, NO SCARRING.

Also, we only use medical-grade equipment, to ensure safety and excellent results.

Which areas can I treat?

You can target individual areas, which is an advantage to HIFU. Usually it’s not possible to treat around eyes and mouth due to a large handpiece but Ultraformer have specifically developed the perfect shape handpiece to target those stubborn areas prone to lines and wrinkles.

At The New York Laser Clinic, we can target brow lifting, jowl line lifting, nasolabial fold reduction, periorbital wrinkle reduction, working up to a full face treatment, or face and neck treatments.

If overall skin tightening and rejuvenation if skin health alone is what you’d like to achieve, this Ultraformer / HIFU are an excellent choice.

How does it work?

Ultraformer III uses High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) to heat targeted areas, creating a coagulating effect to the deeper layers of the skin, these are the layers a surgeon would usually pull and tighten in a surgical face lift procedure, but without the risks associated with surgery.

Acoustic energy is applied to the area you’d like to improve, this reaches the subcutaneous layer. The highly focused acoustic energy creates thermal coagulation zones at 3 different depths followed by a wound healing response resulting in new collagen therefore providing a longer term tightening of the skin.

Delivering RF energy into the subcutaneous layer of the skin produces skin tightening, fat cell reduction, cellulite removal and body sculpting.

As well as changing the intensity of the settings, our aestheticians can control the depth that the device delivers the energy. Ranging from 1.5mm-13mm, we can treat on both a superficial level, and a much deeper level for varying results, depending on the individual concerns and indications of each and every patient. The Ultrafomer’s new MF2 cartridge allows our consultants to treat difficult to reach areas, such as around the eyes.

What Results Will I See?

The result from your first HIFU treatment is an immediate visible tightening and lifting effect. The treatment then continues to work for several months, further stimulating collagen production.

You’ll see long lasting lifting and tightening and a reduction of facial lines and wrinkles for some time after the session. The strictly focused application means that results are even, there will be no visible manifestations on the skin’s surface after the procedure, only the lifting and tightening effects will be visible.


This treatment is excellent for a wide range of conditions, if you have a specific question, please don’t hesitate get in touch.


Hifu Aftercare

One of the best benefits of HIFU is that there is no down time to this treatment, meaning you can carry on your usual day-to-day activities, and apply make-up straight after treatment should you choose to!

Our key advice post-treatment is to wear SPF to protect skin, we recommend Heliocare SPF 50, leave a 2 week gap in between having other facial treatments such as Microdermabrasion or Laser Hair Removal, and ensure you are continuing to use recommended products your consultant has recommended for best results!


We will be sure to consult with you prior to your treatment to make your experience as pleasant as possible. Some patients feel no discomfort at all, some more so. Patients typically leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come.

Is there any down time?

Great news - none at all. HIFU is known as your lunch-time face lift! You can pop in and out with no downtime needed. You should avoid exposing your skin to extremes of heat and cold and protect your skin with a sun block cream. Your normal makeup regime can be followed immediately.

Can it treat around the eyes?

Absolutely, this is what makes Ultraformer so popular. It's perfect for difficult to reach, and sensitive areas.

How much does it cost?

We have a wide range of treatments available, discounts for multiple sessions and some excellent options for 0% finance. Our Ultraformer prices start from £275.


A full face-and-neck treatment takes approximately 30 minutes, and a partial face treatment can take around 30-minutes•neither with any downtime.


There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so following the treatment, and a small percentage of patients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature. There is always the possibility for other less common post-procedural effects, which your practitioner will review with you.


A good candidate for The Ultraformer 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 The Ultraformer 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.

Is Ultraformer safe?

The procedure has been cleared by the U.S. FDA after demonstrating safety in clinical studies, and tens of thousands of treatments have been performed worldwide without any significant adverse events. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years, including pregnancy scans.

Is Ultraformer surgery?

No. The Ultraformer addresses the skin and the support layer below it, but it doesn’t entail cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.

Which areas can be treated with Ultraformer?

The Ultraformer is perfect for tightening and lifting the skin on the neck, under the chin, the jawline, the brow, around the eyes, and treating wrinkling and sagging on the décolletage and body (areas of which that can be targeted include: chest, arms, abdomen, flanks, thighs and lower legs).

What is Ultraformer?

The Ultraformer 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. It is also the only procedure to use ultrasound.

Is HIFU laser?

No, Hifu is a High Intensity Focused Ultrasound which penetrates into the deeper layers of the skin and tightens. The areas it targets is where a surgeon would normally pull & lift in a face lift. The great benefit is that you can have fantastic results without scarring, pain or down time!
