Leading anti-ageing facial at The Cobham Clinic
PUBLISHED: 16:21 06 September 2018
One of the leading anti-ageing facials, Ultraformer 3, has arrived at The Cobham Clinic
Tell us more about Ultraformer, what is this new treatment?
The Ultraformer 3 is a completely non-invasive, clinically proven face lifting & tightening, body tightening and contouring device that provides customised treatment procedures for entire face, neck and body. The treatment is non-invasive and there is no downtime or side effects.
Ultraformer treatment is good for skin lifting and tightening, it also helps with fine lines, wrinkles, pores, skin tone and elasticity. HIFU Therapy treats the deep foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery, HIFU doesn’t duplicate the results of a facelift, however it is a fantastic alternative and certainly the most effective face lifting procedure currently on the market without going under the knife. It’s especially good for those not ready for surgery or for patients looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
How does the machine do this?
HIFU works on the SMAS layer, which is a sub-dermal layer of tissue that acts a “sling” for the facial layers. HIFU is the only treatment which can target this layer, creating SMAS contracture gives a lifting effect by using micro and macro focused ultrasound that induces thermal coagulation and contracture, basically the heat causes a shrinking effect on the tissue. It also stimulates new collagen and elastin to be formed smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. HIFU is also used on the body and causes subcutaneous fat reduction for body treatments on stomach, arms, thighs and back (a course of 3 treatments is normally required for fat reduction and body contouring).
Can you see immediate results?
Often results can be seen straight away but results are normally seen from 12 weeks onwards due to the nature of the tissue remodelling, this a biological process that take time to complete.
How long does the result last?
The treatment is dependent upon the client’s own skin and desired results. Each person is an individual case and needs a consultation prior to treatment. Usually one or two treatments in most cases will achieve fantastic results that can last for over 12 months and often longer, again this is largely patient dependant.
What are common areas of concern?
Anti-ageing, sagging skin or jowl area & fine lines andwrinkles are besttreatedwith HIFU and Skinpen microneedling, these two treatments work really well together as we are lifting, tightening and treating skin texture. CACI can also be used to further enhance the effects of the HIFU treatment too, we have carefully selected our treatments to compliment one another, and to work on different areas the skin.
Pigmentation is another concern that many clients have, we can use at home Environ products combined with facials, microneedling and neostrata peels to reduce the appearance of pigmentation.
Acne, whether its childhood acne or adult acne can be treated with LED light therapy and enzyme masks. LED light can also be used as an express collagen boosting facial or be bolted on to an Environ or CACI facial to enhance results!
As you can see the treatment possibilities are quite extensive and a combination of treatments can be used if needed. Each client is totally different, and we design a treatment plan around client.
So you offer quite an extensive range of skin treatments?
We offer a wide variety of skin, body & health treatments, our skin clinic has been the focus of our development. We have really looked at what we can offer clients and tried to bring in new treatments with proven results that are of a high quality.

How do you know which treatment book in for?
