Ultherapy® uses ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production in the skin’s foundation, resulting in a clinically significant lift of tissue over 3 months. Lasers rely on light energy, which typically only treats superficial skin (around 1 mm in depth) and are not FDA-cleared or CE mark-certified to lift skin. Lasers often result in downtime after a procedure. The ultrasound energy of Ultherapy® bypasses the surface of the skin (going to depths between 1.5 mm and 4.5 mm), with means that usually no downtime is required after the treatment. Since the two technologies often treat different types of skin issues, they can be compatible. Your aesthetic practitioner will advise you what is best for you.
