Ultherapy versus Thermage, what is the difference?
Thermage and Ultherapy are both non-surgical aesthetic treatments that use different types of energy to stimulate collagen production in the skin, resulting in a tighter and more youthful appearance. However, there are some key differences between the two:
Technology: Thermage uses monopolar radiofrequency energy to heat the layers of the skin, while Ultherapy uses microfocused focused ultrasound energy with visualisation.
Treatment Areas: Thermage can be used to tighten skin on the face, neck, eyelids, and body, while Ultherapy is primarily used for the face, neck and decolletage.
Downtime: Both treatments require little to no downtime, but patients may experience some redness and swelling after the procedure.
Overall, the choice between Thermage and Ultherapy depends on the patient’s specific needs, goals, and preferences. A consultation with an experienced healthcare provider can help determine which treatment is best suited for you.
At Bay Aesthetics Clinic, we have found that the combination of Thermage AND Ultherapy provides optimal outcomes with high client satisfaction. Ultherapy targets the deeper layers of the face for non invasive face lifting, while Thermage targets the more superficial layers of the skin for skin tightening and firming.
