Tretinoin cream vs. Ultherapy
Ultherapy- texture, tone and volume
Ultherapy is always going to outperform creams when it comes to collagen tightening. If skin laxity is an issue, yes, certainly Ultherapy can be the treatment of choice, however the best improvements are seen 3-6 months after this procedure.
Fillers such as Juvederm on the other hand can give you an immediate improvement. Once again, a tailored approach will give you the best results, that look natural.

Tretinoin Cream and Ultherapy
Retinol in a great product for people to use, even in their 20's and 30's for prevention and treatment of collagen loss. As far as Ultherapy, without a picture its hard to say if you would benefit from this. It would likely be more preventative for you, unless you have early skin laxity. You can definitely combine the use of Retinol with an Ultherapy treatment. It would be best to stop the retinol for a few days, to minimize any irritation or peeling.
Another suggestion, if you're basically trying to stimulate collagen, is a resurfacing laser. You might look into a Halo or Venus Viva. We treat our patients with these for more superficial improvements in skin texture and brightening.
