What is the level of a "Platinum" level injector for Ultherapy?

I have seen this somewhere. How many treatments would be needed to have been performed before you are awarded one? Why do some offices claim to have done hundreds, but do not have this award?

Ultherapy

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. 

Ultherapy Information

Hi there, 

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

Ultherapy is a FDA approved, non-invasive skin tightening treatment.  It is not an injectable and therefore has no rewards/awards incentives.

Ultherapy and injector qualifications

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.

Ultherapy level

Ultherapy is not an injectable so whatever "level injector" would not apply to Ultherapy. For best results always seek treatment with board certified dermatologist, facial plastic or general plastic surgeons.
