How does Time Machine procedure compare with Ultherapy?

Ultherapy vs. Time Machine: Both have their place

Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen to lift and tighten skin. The ultrasound energy can be administered into all three layers of the skin. There is typically no down town and the optimal results occur over time and last a year to 18 months. The Time Machine procedure uses multiple modalities including fractional ablative radiofrequency technology which promotes skin tightening, lifting, and resurfacing. Unlike Ultherapy that remodels collagen that holds up the skin, ablative fractional advanced technology used with the Time Machine procedure has a greater impact on skin resurfacing to address texture challenges like brown pigment, pore size, acne scar as well as fine lines and wrinkles. The Time Machine is often used in conjunction with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy which signals youthful cell regenerating processes. There is usually 2-5 days of downtime with Time Machine. Both treatments have their place to achieve a more youthful looking appearance. An experienced aesthetician can help you sort out the best option for your unique situation. You can also consult with your physician and aesthetician for a bundled package of complementary services to include Ultherapy to enhance your skin’s underlying foundation, a fractional laser treatment primarily for texture issues and also PRP to get the multiple benefits of all three treatments.
