Ultraformer 7D Skin Tightening

Ultraformer Sydney - Skin Tightening Treatment

Achieve remarkable Skin Tightening and lifting with Ultraformer 7D Lifting, a pioneering and enduring HIFU treatment. This innovative and well-tolerated procedure effectively tightens, lifts, and fortifies sagging, stretched, or damaged skin on your face and various large body areas. Experience instant results with no downtime post-treatment. Ultraformer Sydney, offered at Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia since 2015, ensures a transformative HIFU experience.

In our youth, collagen and elastin keep our skin supple and flexible. As we age, our skin’s capacity to build collagen decreases so it produces less and less collagen. The quality and strength of existing collagen and elastin fibres also begins to deteriorate. This can lead to skin laxity, folding and creasing and loss of volume, or a sallow appearance, especially in some facial areas and décolletage. It can also have the same effect on arms, legs and stomach. At Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia, we offer a variety of treatments, including Ultraformer, to regenerate collagen in all layers of the skin and strengthen your skin at a cellular level for a youthful, lifted appearance.

Our Skin Tightening and Strengthening treatments use ultrasound energy to stimulate the collagen-producing cells at different depths of the skin. We use advanced technology to deliver targeted pulses of energy to specific depths of the skin and induce controlled heating, without harming the surface layer. This controlled heat stimulates your fibroblast cells to repair damaged collagen fibres and build new collagen, which can help strengthen your skin and provide a tighter appearance.

It takes time for collagen to rebuild itself after treatment, so results will appear gradually over time. For best results, you may need more than one treatment each year, at intervals discussed with your provider.

Our team at Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia have performed nearly 9,000 Ultraformer skin tightening treatments since we received our first Ultraformer machine in June 2015. With that amount of experience, you know you are in safe hands.

Fine lines are a natural effect of repeated facial expressions, sun exposure and a decrease of the skin’s elasticity. As you advance in age, these fine lines can turn into deep creases and wrinkles. A timely treatment for fine lines can reverse and postpone facial ageing for years to come.


Fine lines are a natural effect of repeated facial expressions, sun exposure and a decrease of the skin’s elasticity. As you advance in age, these fine lines can turn into deep creases and wrinkles. A timely treatment for fine lines can reverse and postpone facial ageing for years to come.


As we age, our skin loses elasticity and becomes thinner, leading to the development of fine lines and wrinkles. One area where these signs of aging are particularly noticeable is around the eyes. Your eyes are encircled by the most delicate skin on your body this is where signs of ageing, inadequate sleep and exposure to the elements are first detailed. With careful non surgical treatment, you can prevent and reverse these signs and revive your tired-looking eyes without surgery or downtime. There are several treatments available that can help reduce the appearance of these wrinkles and leave you with a more youthful and refreshed look.


A lack of collagen due to ageing, or over-stretched skin from weight-loss or childbirth can leave your skin saggy with a reduction in skin strength. Reduce and delay these effects and regain that firm, tight and sag-free skin again with our highly qualified skin experts.

Skin strengthening for your face and body

Skin laxity can appear anywhere on the body, and sometimes to get it back into shape you need to treat large areas of the body. This is where ultrasound comes in, tightening loose skin on the face, arms, neck, abdomen and upper thighs. The treatment has an immediate skin tightening effect that lasts for up to 5-6 months. Ultrasound is so efficient you typically only need 2-4 treatments a year to keep your body in shape.

Ultrasound skin tightening treatment

Tighten large skin areas

All body areas can be treated with ultrasound. This makes ultrasound the recommended treatment for you if you have recently lost weight or given birth, but it is also suitable for people who want to achieve a firm, toned skin. The treatment uses ultrasound energy to reach to specific depths of skin, causing an instant skin contraction and lifting as the heat of the UltraSound hits the collagen network causing it to shrink. However the true benefit becomes apparent after a longer period as the stimulation of new collagen takes time to mature.

Cellulite can appear anywhere on your body, but it predominantly affects your upper thighs, love handles and belly. We recommend Skin Tightening with Ultrasound if you want to reduce cellulite from the deeper layers of your skin or if you are looking for a revolutionary treatment to tighten, lift, and slim post-pregnancy lax skin.

You will also achieve a skin toning effect that enhances your young looks and gives you a fit body shape.

Ultraformer Skin Tightening FAQ's

Skin Tightening with Ultrasound is a non-invasive treatment that uses focussed ultrasound energy at specific and precise depths, to instantly contract existing collagen fibres and promote long term stimulation of new and stronger collagen production to give your skin some tightening and lift.

Skin Tightening with Ultraformer 7D Lifting uses ultrasound energy and is more comfortable than Thermage. It causes the same immediate skin contraction but is more focused at specific depths compared with Thermage which uses more bulk heating. Results continue to improve for up to 5 to 6 months and delay ageing for many months afterwards. Repeated treatments (ideally 2-3 times a year) obtain cumulative and additional tightening benefits but similar benefits can be done with an annual treatment of SkinTight with Ultrasound and maintenance SkinTight with Laser treatments.

In a single session it:

  • Lifts and tightens sagging skin.
  • Improves elasticity to firm skin.
  • Slims down facial and body contours.
  • It restores skin back to its strength of a younger skin.

Skin Tightening with Ultrasound targets deep structural skin fibres with focussed Ultrasound technology. This in turn stimulates collagen growth. As we age, collagen loses its elasticity and its ability to hold the facial skin structure as it did in younger years. This process can therefore be looked upon as a boost in reversing the effects of ageing and help strengthen the skin structure again. With repeated treatments it is now possible to slow down the ageing process. As with all the skin strengthening treatments, focussed ultrasound and resulting heat causes a two fazed response:

  1. Immediate fibre contraction, tightening and lifting. Collagen fibres are made of protein and when we heat protein it immediately contracts.
  2. This heating results in a typical wound injury response by our deeper cells by releasing growth factors. These in turn, start a process of collagen cell activation and multiplication. This results in extra fibre collagen growth as well as producing a healthier, younger and more supportive fluid interstitial matrix (DNA).

Treatments can take between 30-60 minutes depending on the area.

There are two distinctly different timings of the

  • Initially there is a heat contraction of the existing collagen network. This collagen
    network is made of tightly condensed strands of protein that immediately shrink when heated. This effect lasts for several months and is very apparent immediately.
  • The secondary effect occurs when the new collagen that is stimulated comes to maturity and gradually develops its full strength over a period of six or more months.

Skin Tightening with Ultrasound is best suited to tighten, tone and lift skin on the upper face, eyebrow, lower face, chin, full neck and full body.

Maximum collagen stimulation is seen between five and six months after treatment. There is no additional new improvement after this. However the density and structure of the collagen is greater as a result of the new collagen stimulation. Therefore the condition of the skin is stronger than it was before the treatment and starting from a stronger base, there will be a slower ageing over the next 6 months or so.

It is recommended that 6 monthly treatments are done to maintain and get incremental improvement with each subsequent treatment. Alternatively we offer a special discount on SkinTight with Laser. We recognise the excellent cumulative benefits that this has after treatment and strongly recommend adding SkinTight with Laser to your post Ultrasound treatment. For optimal results we recommend having SkinTight with Laser every 2 months following the Ultrasound treatment.

There may be slight redness for a short time following the treatment. Some patients report swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary. There is the possibility for other less common side effects to occur and these will be explained to you during consultation.

Apart from the common side effects, Skin Tightening with Ultrasound is considered noninvasive enabling you to be able to return to your normal routine right away.

The degree of discomfort basically depends on the amount of heat. For us to be able to get the best results we must be able to utilise the maximum amount of heat energy that is possible and for clients to tolerate that well we provide strong analgesic. Light treatments at low energies do not yield the same results as more effective treatments with higher energy.

It depends on the size of the area treated, from $400 for lower eye area to $2,500 for full face, neck and eyelids (from $280 – $1,750 in a package).

  • Thermage uses Radio Frequency energy. Skin Tightening with Ultrasound uses ultrasound energy.
  • The different types of energy do the same thing. The deep dermal heating created by both machines causes collagen protein fibre contraction and new collagen cell and fibre development. Skin Tightening with Ultrasound however can be tailored to be a shorter treatment involving smaller areas, especially the upper neck and the lower face. It is thus slightly more cost effective for people who only want to tighten this area of the face.
  • Many people have reported they find Skin Tightening with Ultrasound more comfortable than Thermage, so it is an alternative for those who find Thermage a challenge.
Ultraformer and PDO threads can both be used to replenish collagen and elasticity to ageing, sagging skin, but with two key differences.

Firstly, Ultraformer is a completely non-invasive treatment with no cannula injections involved. Just a transducer that is placed on top of the skin to direct the ultrasound energy.

Secondly, PDO threads are placed beneath the superficial layer of skin, but ultrasound energy can target the deeper dermal layer of your skin to stimulate deep collagen and elasticity.

These treatments can be used to complement each other as ultrasound energy can bypass the superficial layer of skin where PDO threads are placed.
