Pros and Cons of Ultherapy and Thermage CPT

Both Ultherapy and Thermage CPT are incredibly useful non-surgical facelift procedures. Each one is used for a different variety of symptoms, some of which are similar. We have both treatments readily available because we feel as though both are equally as useful depending on your situation. For some symptoms, Ultherapy is far more convenient that Thermage CPT treatment, whereas for other symptoms Thermage CPT exceeds Ultherapy. No procedure is flawless and no one procedure is capable of treating every bodily symptom we have; at least, not yet. In the meantime, here are some of the major advantages of each facelift method that we felt you should know before considering the use of either.

Ultherapy is Completely Non-Invasive

Both Ultherapy and Thermage CPT are considered to be non-invasive facelift methods. This is because they do not require the use of injections or surgical incisions. While this is true for both, Ultherapy is 100% non-invasive, whereas there are minor aspects of Thermage CPT that make it a little uncomfortable for some. Ultherapy uses a targeted ultrasound device to affect the dermal skin layers. This ultrasound device does not cause any pain and has no effect on the epidermal skin layers. When using a Thermage CPT device, the epidermal skin layers will be heated by it, which can sometimes cause redness and increased sensitivity for a few days.

Thermage CPT has a Strong Positive Influence on the Skin’s Surface

While Thermage CPT may be slightly more invasive than Ultherapy, its effects on your epidermal skin layers do have a highly positive impact. The thermal energy from the device used is capable of removing impurities on the skin’s surface. Some of the impurities that Thermage CPT is capable of removing are minor acne and scars, freckles, unwanted pigmentation, and fine lines. Ultherapy does help to tighten the skin in your epidermis which can remove some fine lines and sagging skin; it does not, however, affect acne scars or other undesirable impurities on the skin’s surface.

Ultherapy Rejuvenates Your Skin Naturally

When it comes to your skin’s health, Ultherapy is the way to go. The ultrasound device is capable of targeting the very roots of your dermal skin layers and improving collagen production. This increase in collagen will effectively re-teach your skin cells how to remain dense and tight on their own. This effect allows you to have smooth, tight skin in a completely natural way. There is no need for surgical intervention when your skin heals itself naturally.

Thermage CPT can be Used Almost Anywhere

One of the major advantages of the Thermage CPT is that it can be used on most of your body. While Ultherapy can reach the depths of your skin, it is mainly used for your face and sometimes your neck. Thermage CPT can be used on your face, neck, arms, legs, chest, and back. These are just a few of the advantages for each of these facelift treatments. Perhaps with this knowledge, you will better be able to decide which is best for your condition.
