HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) Ultraformer addresses several common concerns including sagging skin on the face, neck, and décolletage, fine lines and wrinkles, and stubborn pockets of fat on the body. Its popularity is due to its innovative ability to lift and tighten the skin, offering a ‘non-surgical facelift’ option that appeals to those who seek natural-looking results with minimal downtime.

The treatment involves using a handheld device that delivers focused ultrasound energy to specific depths beneath the skin. This energy generates heat, which stimulates collagen production and contracts muscle layers. The increase in collagen production leads to firmer, more youthful-looking skin over time. Additionally, for body contouring, the thermal effect can reduce fat cells, resulting in a slimmer appearance.

The procedure typically lasts between 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the area being treated. It is generally well-tolerated, with most patients experiencing only mild discomfort during the session. There is no need for anaesthesia, and patients can resume their normal activities immediately afterward.

To achieve the best results, Ambra’s trained practitioners may recommend a series of treatment sessions, typically spaced about three months apart. This allows the body time to produce new collagen and elastin fibres, enhancing the lifting and tightening effects. Results can be seen as early as one month after treatment, with the most significant improvements appearing around three to six months post-treatment.

For optimal outcomes, it is essential to follow post-treatment care instructions provided by the practitioner, which may include avoiding direct sunlight, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and using recommended skincare products. Regular follow-up sessions may be advised to maintain the achieved results.

I went to see Dr McMillan for the first time about a year ago so she could revise some badly done under eye filler NOT DONE BY DR MCMILLAN, and she’s done the most fantastic job i had terrible anxiety from the previous injector and was very nervous, I did so much research but decided to go ahead with Dr McMillan as she was so reassuring and honest with it all

I would highly recommend Maryam and her team at Ambra Aesthetic clinic, my husband had dental treatment with straightening and whitening of his teeth and the results are amazing. I have also had various treatments and we are both very pleased with the service, kindness shown and professionalism. Thank you Ambra. See you soon.

Ambra Aesthetics are the place to go to for professional, friendly service. You don’t need to go to Harley Street. Dr M and her team are all experts and really take care of you giving the best treatments and advice. Sam on the front desk is a dream. In lots of places the staff can look scary from doing too much but Ambra you can tell it’s all about discrete subtle tweakments. . Don’t hesitate to go!
