Ulthera vs E prime skin rejuvenation
Ulthera is an FDA-cleared devide for non-invasive skin lifting using highly focused ultrasound. E prime is newer technology but uses radiofrequency energy, which is what has been used inThermage for several years. One difference is that E prime is a minimally invasive procedure that uses an array of microneedles to deliver the energy under the skin. With Ulthera there is no downtime because it is noninvasive. Both work by stimulating collagen regeneration.
