Facial Contouring For A More Defined Face Shape


I’m quite wary when it comes to any kind of dermatological treatment, especially if a machine is involved But when I heard about UltraFace Facial Contouring, I had to try it. It combines both ultrasound and radiofrequency to reduce the appearance of facial fat and bring out the contours of your face. The whole process takes about 45 minutes.

First, your face is cleaned before a thick layer of petroleum jelly is slathered on specific areas. The ultrasound then starts. It takes about eight minutes to do each side of your face. Eyes will be covered for protection but you’ll hear a faint whirring sound, and feel heat pressing down on your skin, which is tolerable.

Once you’re done with the first step, they clean off any residual petroleum jelly before applying baby oil. For 10-15 minutes, you’ll feel a constant and firm pressure from the handpiece that starts off cold but gets warmer and warmer, before cooling your skin towards the end. The entire process is repeated for a second cycle.

It’s recommended that you have at least eight treatments or more for optimum results, with a break of 10 days between sessions. After 1 session, I did notice the shape of my face more, the sharpness of its lines, and even my laugh lines seemed less apparent. Two days after the session, I was told by three of my friends, who didn’t know I had the treatment, that my face seemed thinner. I can only imagine what eight sessions could accomplish!
