What is the level of a "Platinum" level injector for Ultherapy?
Doctor Answers 5
Ultherapy treatment is a non-invasive ultrasound technology used to lift and tighten the skin. It is not an injection. The "Platinum" level marketing could indicate experienced injectors of neurotoxins and fillers who also perform Ultherapy treatments. A qualified injector does not mean a qualified Ultherapy technician because the two are unrelated.
The internet can provide patients with valuable information towards their research into cosmetic procedures. With that being said, the internet also can provide people with misleading and/or false information in regards to procedures that are performed in clinics. In order to obtain the correct knowledge of information, I would advise on scheduling an in person consultation with a plastic surgeon for Ultherapy treatments.
Ultherapy is a not an injection, so the reference to 'Platinum' level injector is not applicable to this procedure.
Ultherapy is a FDA approved, non-invasive skin tightening treatment. It is not an injectable and therefore has no rewards/awards incentives.

Because Ultherapy is not an injection, there is probably some confusion in the marketing message you are asking about. Allergan, the maker of Botox, Juvederm, and Voluma, does give designations to its highest volume accounts. Platinum accounts do a very high volume so that means a lot of experience.
