LM SKINCENTRE Hong Kong introduces Ultraformer MPT treatment which is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that uses High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) technology to lift and tighten sagging skin.
The treatment targets the deep tissue layers, such as the SMAS (Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System) and the deep dermis, without causing damage to the skin’s surface. Ultraformer MPT (the 4th generation) is the latest generation of Ultraformer series. This new technology is designed to provide a safer and more efficient solution for skin rejuvenation. The MPT series is equipped with Micro & Macro focused Ultrasound (MMFU) technology, which divides the Thermal Coagulation Point (TCP) generating method into micro-units, leading to precise TCP quality.
Ultraformer MPT is ideal for treating a range of skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, droopy eyelids, skin laxity, sagging skin, and dull and uneven skin tone. If you’re concerned about any of these issues, you may be a good candidate for the treatment.
One of the biggest benefits of Ultraformer MPT is that you can see the results right away. The treatment stimulates the skin’s natural collagen production, which can continue to improve for up to six months after the procedure.
Longevity of Results:
With proper aftercare and after a course of treatment under the advice of doctor, the benefits of Ultraformer MPT can last for about one year.
While some patients may experience slight redness and swelling, the procedure only have mild degree of pain. For those who are sensitive to pain, optional numbing is available.
Post-Procedure Side Effects:
Like any medical procedure, Ultraformer MPT does come with some potential side effects. The most common side effects include pain, redness and swelling. However, these are generally mild and subside within a few hours to a few days. In rare cases, more serious side effects such as bruising, blistering, burn, break of thread lift, nerve injuries, and allergy to anesthesia may occur. If you experience any concerning symptoms, it’s important to consult a doctor immediately.

People with pacemakers, gold threads, prosthetics, implants, or metal plates, severe diabetes, infections, skin diseases, keloids, or who are pregnant are not eligible for the procedure. Additionally, people who have received injections, peeling therapy, laser treatment, phototherapy, oral isotretinoin, or gold preparations within the past few weeks or months have to consult doctor before receiving Ultraformer MPT.

Q: What is Ultraformer MPT, and how does it work?
A: The Ultraformer MPT is an advanced ultrasound device that targets the SMAS layer between the fat tissue and muscle to promote collagen production and create a lifting effect on the brows, jawline, and neck. Its use of ultrasound technology allows it to penetrate deep through the dermis and stimulate collagen production, resulting in a longer-lasting outcome compared to other treatments.
Q: What is the difference between Ultraformer MPT and other generation of Ultraformer and HIFU machine?
A: The latest addition to the ULTRAFORMER series is the MPT, which offers a safer and more efficient skin tightening solution. Equipped with Micro & Macro focused Ultrasound (MMFU) technology, the treatment divides the Thermal Coagulation Point (TCP) generating method into micro-units, resulting in precise TCP quality and maximized efficiency.

A: Ultraformer MPT treatment is suitable for patients seeking neck rejuvenation and skin tightening. It is an alternative to surgery and can also be used as a preventative treatment to delay the signs of aging or as maintenance treatment following surgery.
Q: How long does the treatment take, and is it painful?
