Dr. Margaret Anderson offers the World’s No. 1 Choice for non-invasive Skin Lifting & Tightening treatments.

Skin Lifting and Tightening using the World’s Most Advanced Technology
ULTRAFORMER III’s advanced design cartridges works on specific layers of the skin to effectively elicit a natural, lifted look without the discomfort and the downtime. ULTRAFORMER III advantages include faster shot and treatment speed, less discomfort associated with treatments and better efficacy.
No Downtime, All Uptime
Since there is no downtime, you can come in for a “lunchtime treatment” and go back to your normal routine afterwards.
Consistent Clinical Results
Patients notice immediate results with progressive improvement up to 90 days post-treatment for peak results. These results can be maintained from 12-24 months afterwards.
What is Ultraformer?
Ultraformer treatment uses ultrasound to lift and tighten a number of problem areas, including the lower face, under the chin, and neck. It can reduce wrinkles around the eyes, mouth and cheeks. It can also be used for skin tightening on small problem areas of the body.
During Ultraformer treatment, low amounts of Micro-Focused Ultrasound energy are delivered into precise skin depths, without damaging the surface of the skin. The MFU energy creates heat, which stimulates tissue remodelling. The result, over time, is a natural skin lifting, tightening and rejuvenation.
What can I expect in the treatment?
Prior to treatment you skin will be cleaned, and a set of clinical photos will be taken. Topical anaesthetic can be applied. You can expect to experience some discomfort as the ultrasound energy is delivered.
What does Ultraformer treat?
Ultraformer III performs skin tightening on the Face, Neck and Body. It can also be used to lift the skin, treat fine lines and wrinkles, and rejuvenate and strengthen the skin.
How long does each treatment take?
Ultraformer treatments take between 30 minutes to an hour, depending on which areas are being treated.
How much does it cost?
The cost varies depending on the areas you are having treated.
The doctor will discuss the areas you would like treated during your consultation and can customise the treatment to address your areas of concern and meet your budget.
How many treatments will I need?
Most patients will need only one treatment, and then can repeat the treatment every 12 months to maintain their results.
For moderate to severe laxity, 2 treatments in the first 6 months is recommended, and maintenance treatments every 12 months after that.
Your doctor can advise you of the appropriate treatment regimen to maximise your results during your consultation.
When does numbing cream need to be applied?
Numbing cream needs to be applied 30 minutes prior to treatment, onset is within 30 minutes, and will work for 60 minutes after the cream is removed.
Who can have the Ultraformer treatment?
Patients suitable for Ultraformer are those with sagging and laxity of the skin, caused by sun damage and ageing. Patients with facial implants or open wounds on their face are not appropriate for this treatment.
Do I need to do anything to prepare for the treatment?
For best results, we recommend men are clean shaven on the day for treatment. There is no need to wear makeup as it will be removed prior to treatment.
What are the possible side effects?
Although side effects are uncommon they can occur. They are usually temporary and mild in nature.
Your skin may appear red for a few hours after Ultraformer treatment.
You may experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness for a few days after treatment. Rarely, some patients may experience temporary bruising welts or numbness.
As with any heat-based treatment, there is a slight risk of burning the skin.
Temporary nerve inflammation will resolve in a few days or weeks.
If a motor nerve has become inflamed, you might experience some temporary local muscle weakness. There could be some temporary numbness if a sensory nerve has become inflamed.
