Is Thermage Same As Ulthera?

I had their age to lift my neck, it did not really work. Now I am considering Uthera but would like to know if it is more effective than their age? Renee

We ran tests comparing the results of Ulthera and Thermage technologies, and were not satisfied with the Ulthera. Thermage non-invasive radiofrequency tightening is designed for use on mild to moderate laxity of the skin of the neck. Our patient satisfaction rate at our clinic with Thermage is 99.7%. As with all procedures, education and experience leads to optimum results.

Are both non-surgical tightening mechanisms. There is a difference in the method of delivery but I am skeptical about both. They deliver very limited rejuvenation and tightening and most of the patients I see as a plastic surgeon require more aggressive treatment. I am reluctant to provide a service which I know will not produce a high level of patient satisfaction and prefer to use fillers for rejuvenation and for patients to save their hard earned money for surgery.
