Thermage is a great laser for skin tightening. Utilizing the new CPT technology in just 90 minutes without any down time you can improve the skin laxity and rejuvenate your skin. Thermage works on all patients and produces new collagen. However, if you have an extensive amount of skin laxity than a surgical procedure may be required. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with Thermage for the best cosmetic results.
Ultherapy is a great modality that uses DEEPSEE technology (B mode US) to visualize the site of delivery of high intensity focused ultrasound energy in a noninvasive manner.
I have performed Ultherapy since 2011 in hundreds of patients with great outcomes.
Thanks for your
question and we recommend that you have a consultation with a board-certified
dermatologist or plastic surgeon to learn the various treatment options that
are available to you, including surgery and the non-invasive procedures that
work well here.Ultherapy can be done here as well and
great results can be obtained. Another option would be one of the more
sophisticated radiofrequency (RF) skin-tightening devices, such as the Venus
Legacy, the EndyMed 3Deep, or the BTL Exilis. Laser lipo and Ultherapy are
one-time procedures; RF treatments can take several sessions here. Learning the
treatment options will help you determine which of them are right for you.
Thermage can tighten and lift saggy skin around the jawline and crepiness on the forehead but does not take the place of a face lift. If you decide on a non-surgical procedure, Thermage can give great results.
Nothing gives as much lift as a facelift. You should see a facial contouring expert to see if a noninvasive option is better for you. In my hands Thermage gives amazing lift and I have all my patients continue with venus legacy and fillers. Best, Dr. Emer.
