Ultherapy vs. Thermage: How it Works

How Ulthera Works

Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology by stimulating collagen responses deep beneath the layers of the skin.

This “tricks” the body into producing new collagen – a process that results in firmer skin. Ulthera is smart quick and nearly painless to give excellent results.

What Procedure is More Effective, Ultherapy or Thermage?

While both Ultherapy and Thermage are effective treatments to fight off father time, we generally suggest Thermage as the better and more effective procedure. While Thermage has been around longer and has been used on over a million patients with proven benefits Ultherapy has a different advantage over thermage.

Thermage is the only FDA approved treatment for wrinkle relief.Its the only treatment which can be done on the eyes where ulthera cannot work. This extra benefit can lead to a dramatic difference in how you look, helping to both get rid of sagging skin while simultaneously treating wrinkles.

What to Expect From Thermage and Ultherapy

Duration And Recovery

Both procedures are fast enough to be performed on your lunch break, although most clients prefer to set aside a full day to allow any redness or swelling to dissipate. Ultherapy typically requires only one 30-to-90-minute session, while Thermage lasts about 45 minutes for the eyes and face or 90 minutes for larger areas like your backside or tummy. Particularly problematic skin may necessitate multiple treatments; however, these expectations will be set during your consultation.


Neither treatment is permanent, meaning you may desire a touch up every year to keep the skin as firm as it can be without surgery. Ultherapy produces results within two to three months as new collagen forms below the epidermis. Thermage is very similar, with optimal results showing around the six-month mark. Many clients have seen results in a matter of weeks.
