Ultherapy versus Thermage
Ultherapy can lift the eye brows, which will relieve some of the heaviness of the brows. This contributes to the "sagging" appearance. Ultherapy cannot be used inside the orbital bone, however, with a highly trained and experienced technician, one can treat below the brow and over the bone, if your anatomical structure & tissue depth allows. Our PA's and NP have been trained in all advanced techniques.
Ultherapy can help to tighten the skin around eyes. I haven't seen Ultherapy used for under eye puffiness, for this you may be able to obtain correction with filler or possible need surgical intervention, but that can only be decided by a consultation with a trained and licensed professional. .
Feel free to call our office for questions or for a complementary consultation.

Ultherapy versus Thermage
Thank you for your question. Ultherapy is commonly used to address sagging of the eyelids, brow, cheeks, chin and jawline. It can also improve marionette lines and folds and a downturned mouth. The whole face may be treated for an overall tighter, more toned appearance, or individual areas may be targeted. This is an ideal solution for individuals with mild to moderate sagging in the face and neck who are not yet ready to undergo more invasive surgical procedures. It will give you a lifted, more refreshed look but it generally is not used to reduce under-eye puffiness. Depending on the severity of your under-eye puffiness, you might not need Thermage. Consult with a board-certified doctor who will recommend the best course of action. Best of luck.

Full face Ultherapy is really an alternative to Thermage
Full face Ultherapy is really an alternative to Thermage. You shouldn’t need both Ultherapy and Thermage. Ultherapy works on deep layers underneath the skin whereas Thermage works more superficially on the skin layer itself. Ultherapy will give you better lifting, but you shouldn’t need both of these treatments.
Thermage and Pelleve eyelid treatment can be a complement to Ultherapy on the full face
To-date there is not yet available a suitable transducer to use on the upper eyelid or lower eyelid skin for Ultheapy and if this skin needs to be tightened during a full face ultherapy, Theramge can be a good additional treatment. The infraorbital Ultherapy transducer is meant for the skin below the tear trough but Thermage and Pelleve can be used on the eyelid.
