Ultherapy from Ulthera,  is a deep focused ultrasound energy that is FDA cleared for facial lifting. There are no needles required, and there is minimal if any down time.

  E-Prime, from Candela - Syneron, is a bipolar radiofrequency systems that delivers energy via electrode needles into the deep dermis heating the tissues. It's indications appear to be increasing the dermal collagen.  Data will need to be collected over the years to see if both these devices can produce similar results.

Ulthera vs E prime skin rejuvenation

+1

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.
