Ultherapy or ThermiTight ? Buffalo Niagara NY
Ultherapy is the only FDA cleared procedure to non invasively lift the eyebrow, neck and under chin. It has also been approved to improve decolletage lines and wrinkles around the eyes.
There are no studies that compare ThermiTight to Ultherapy. However, there are studies that show that Ultherapy works and the company continues to upgrade their devices and provide ongoing updates to help improve outcomes.
Success also depends on provider experience and the # and delivery vectors during treatment of the face and neck.

Tightening with Ultherapy vs. Thermitight
Facial Skin Tightening with Ultherapy
Ultherapy has a great deal of clinical experience and many clinical studies showing its safety and efficacy in treating all of the areas that you are describing that are bothering you. Thermi is new, and although gaining more traction in the dermatology field, has had a head start in the plastic surgical arena. It can work well under very skilled individuals so do not necessarily rule this procedure out.
Get the facts, talk to the docs in your area, and then you can choose which procedure you think covers everything you want done.

Thermitight vs Ultherapy Lift
Ultherapy Lift is noninvasive as there is no piercing of the skin and does have FDA approval for lift and tightening.
Radio frequency for cosmetic skin tightening initially surfaced with Thermage which delivers what is called bulk heating to a an area of a few centimeters per pulse.
The use of probes to pierce the skin to deliver more precise heating with RF energy is fairly new.The company which manufactures the Thermitight device has used the technology to stop nerve impulses in the forehead area by heating the nerves to a temperature level that causes them to stop functioning - a similar effect as toxins achieve for relaxing frown muscles.
Until -and if - this procedure gains FDA approval, you won't see too much of it because it is off-label and does require piercing of the skin. Early users function in a mild way as test subjects.
