Is Ultherapy the same as Ultraformer?

Is Ultherapy the same as Ultraformer?

In general, the Ultraformer III works better on people older than 30 with mild-to-moderate skin laxity while Ulthera works better for mature patients who have severe skin concerns. Choosing between the 2 treatments can be consulted with our doctor.

Is Thermage the same as Ultherapy?

The main difference between Thermage and Ultherapy is the type of energy each uses to restore collagen production. Radiofrequency is used for Thermage, while Ultherapy uses ultrasound. This energy difference is important because ultrasound can generally reach deeper into the dermal layer.

Is HIFU the same as Thermage?

Both Thermage and HIFU systems both use energy to invoke and restore collagen production in the dermal layer of the skin. However, the type of energy used is different: Thermage uses radio frequency (RF) energy while HIFU uses ultrasound (US) energy.

Is Thermage FLX better than CPT?

According to users, Thermage FLX just does it better, faster and more comfortably. The device still employs Comfort Pulse Technology (CPT™), which uses vibrating pulses in the handpiece to enhance patient comfort, and the enlarged treatment tips allow for faster treatment.

What is Ultraformer III?

Ultraformer III is an innovative non-surgical and non-invasive skin tightening and lifting treatment. Using sophisticated macro- and micro-focused ultrasound technology, Ultraformer III stimulates your body’s natural regenerative processes to rejuvenate the three critical levels of your skin’s infrastructure.

What is the Ultraformer?

Ultraformer therapy is a completely non-invasive face and neck lifting treatment by Ultraformer. It uses High Intensity focused ultrasound to lift and tighten the skin without significant downtime.

How long does Ultraformer last?

Typically, optimal results will start to become noticeable after two to three months, and last for well over a year.

Is ultraformer 3 the same as HIFU?

HIFU – high intensity focused ultrasound – is a newer, non-surgical method of lifting facial tissue and removing unwanted fat. HIFU is the technology that underpins the Ultraformer: HIFU and the Ultraformer are the same, with the Ultraformer being a high-performing brand of HIFU machine.

Is HIFU an ultraformer?

Ultraformer is a non-surgical skin tightening treatment that incorporates high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy.

Is Thermage FLX effective?

Some patients see improvement in the appearance of their skin immediately following their Thermage FLX session, but the majority of improvement (increased skin thickness, tissue tightening) will continue for up to six months after treatment.

How much does Thermage FLX machine cost?

Thermage® cost averages around $2000, but can fall anywhere in the $1000 to $5000 range. Although Thermage® is considered a cost-effective treatment compared with surgical alternatives such as face lift, the price may still seem daunting to some.

What is the difference between Thermage CPT and Thermage FLX?

Thermage® CPT and FLX offer better pain management and cooling systems (i.e. vibrations and bursts of cold air). This avoids the burn issue noted above. The FLX can also deliver more heat, in a shorter amount of time. Thermage® is a completely non-invasive skin tightening procedure, with no downtime involved.

What is the difference between Thermage and ultraformer/Ultherapy?

Thermage uses radiofrequency energy to induce heat, Ultraformer and Ultherapy use ultrasound energy (also known as HIFU), but there are a few other key differences between them. What are the differences? Aside from the type of energy used, the key differences between Thermage and Ultraformer/Ultherapy are in the depths and delivery of the energy.

What is Thermage and how does it work?

The newer Thermage machine (Thermage FLX) delivers a cooling effect to the surface of the skin after each pulse of energy to bring the pain level down. With Ultraformer and Ultherapy, we provide a topical numbing cream to manage discomfort without minimising the collagen-stimulating heat in your skin.

What is the difference between HIFU and Thermage?

Compared to Thermage which is Radiofrequency, HIFU treatments reach DEEPER (4.5mm vs 3.0mm) to the SMAS layer (superficial musculoaponeutic system).
