One is through ultrasound and the other one is through creating and stimulating your own body to create more collagen.
Different routes, same potential destination
The Ultraformer is a device that uses micro-focused ultrasound waves to stimulate collagen formation in the skin.
The PRP a.k.a Vampire uses the platelets in your blood to form new collagen.
Once collagen is stimulated, the skin becomes tighter and smoother.
Ultraformer - Pros - non-invasive (no needles), quick to perform. Cons - potential bone damage from too much ultrasound, results depend on who is administering the treatment
PRP - Pros - stimulation of collagen, blood vessels, fibrin i.e. everything needed for healthy skin, using your own body's healing power. Cons - required good baseline health, invasive
Results for both treatments take at least 4 weeks to start showing
I think the right option would be to have a combination of both
Hope this helps
