Both Ultherapy and HIFU treatments offer a comparatively painless and completely non-invasive method to tighten and rejuvenate the skin. They have risen in popularity as non-surgical alternatives to the anti-ageing facelift.
Patients can expect firmer, smoother and more radiant skin thanks to their elastin and collagen and stimulation. Both Ultherapy and Hifu machines differ in several ways, from their skin tightening results to the types of technology they use.
Ultherapy Vs HIFU for skin tightening and lifting
Ultherapy and Hifu offer a non-surgical method to achieve skin rejuvenation and facelift. Elastin and collagen proteins are the main fibres that make the connective tissues of the skin. They hold up the foundation of the skin to maintain its firmness and elasticity. But both reduce with age, leading to skin looseness and the formation of lines and wrinkles.
Both Ultherapy and HIFU apply heat energy to stimulate the production of collagen. The optimal temperature for this process is about 70°C. Old collagen fibres are destroyed at these temperatures, and the body starts a repair process by producing new elastin and collagen proteins.
Hifu vs Ultherapy Visualization
One very important difference between Ultherapy and HIFU is that Ultherapy gives practitioners an ability to see the deeper layers of skin during the treatment. This is why DeepSEE visualisation is so essential for skin tightening enhancements, and why Ultherapy is the gold-standard treatment in the skin tightening and lifting.
Ultherapy Vs HIFU Results
Both Ultherapy and HIFU treatments produce face lifting and tightening results. However, as they cause a cell renewal process, the visual effects are not so immediate. Best results take about 3 months to show through, as elastin and collagen production takes some time to build back up. You can expect the results to last about 6 months for HIFU and more than a year for Ultherapy.
However, Ultherapy has been introduced much earlier than HIFU. This makes it one of the most researched skin rejuvenation and anti-ageing technologies of their kinds. Its results have been independently verified and supported by over 110 studies and research papers (60 peer-renewed papers and 50 clinical studies). This greatly exceeds Hifu products, which have only been studied a small number of times for their efficacy and patient satisfaction. This is why Ultherapy has been recommended by most doctors and cosmetic specialists as the gold-standard skin tightening treatment, and why celebrities including Tess Daly and Jennifer Aniston have verified its transformative results with their personal testimonials.
