The Differences Between Ultherapy vs Thermage Treatments

The Differences Between Ultherapy vs Thermage Treatments

As you consider Thermage or Ultherapy, it’s important to know the similarities and differences between the two. Ultherapy treatments are used to lift the skin at deeper layers than Thermage treatments do, which is why it takes more sessions with Ultherapy to see results than with Thermage. 

How Does Ultherapy Work? 

Ultherapy is a non-invasive FDA-cleared procedure. This treatment uses ultrasound energy beneath the surface of the skin to stimulate collagen production. Ultherapy treatments are more suitable for tightening areas around the jaw line, lifting eyelids, tightening neck skin, and diminishing wrinkles.  Menopausal women will benefit from Ultherapy more than Thermage because of hormonal changes that cause laxity in skin tissue

How Does Thermage Work?

Thermage uses radiofrequency (RF) technology to deliver heat deep into tissues, stimulating new collagen production.  When performed on the face, the procedure tightens glandular tissues which is why it’s primarily used to improve facial contours such as smoothing out lines across the forehead or between the eyes.  Thermage is also used to tighten the abdominal area, that is the advantage of doing Thermage on larger areas. A single treatment takes about 30 to 90 minutes depending on the treatment area, and there is little to no downtime.

How many treatments do I need?

Thermage treatments take about an hour while Ultherapy takes 30 minutes.  These procedures can be performed on any part of the body including your face, neck, arms, hands, chest, or abdomen. 

In terms of downtime, both treatments require only minimal recovery with no invasive incisions or stitches necessary for either procedure.   Both procedures have similar results when performed on men with great results achieved after 3-4 sessions with 2-3 treatments within a year.  Most individuals only need one treatment.  For severe skin laxity, two treatments may be more beneficial.

These procedures can be performed on the same day as other non-invasive procedures that you use for self-care, including chemical peels and microdermabrasion, and both Ultherapy and Thermage enhance other skin rejuvenation treatments such as laser resurfacing and injectables like Botox.

Ways of Getting Glowing Skin

Glowing skin that helps you look and feel better is a common request among our clients. For those clients, we recommend a couple different options. We have chemical peels that exfoliate dead skin. The peels also help to bring out newer, healthier layers of skin. They take very little time to apply, and your results will be fully obvious within around a week. We also have BB Glow, which gives your skin a natural glow, allowing you to appear healthier even from a distance.

Internal Options

If you want to feel better from the inside, we also have options that you can go with. Tired and feeling sluggish most days? Then we may recommend our vitamin B injections. On top of giving you a natural energy boost, they can also help you shed excess weight. You can also opt for Juvéderm® HYDRATE. This is a filler that goes inside, typically under wrinkles or in areas you want to firm or plump. You can get lasting effects in very little time, allowing your confidence to show from the inside out.

What Do Vitamin Injections Have to Do with Beauty Treatments?

Everyone desires that type of beauty that makes others take notice. For some, it comes naturally, but those are often the exceptions. For the rest of us, we have flaws or imperfections that sometimes we see more than others do. If you want to look your best, you may want to think about getting vitamin injections. You may not see how they connect to your overall look, but let us tell you, they can make a significant difference!

Vitamin Injects Can Help You Look Your Best

There are many different kinds of vitamin injections that you can get. Each of them can provide something different to your body. For example, one option – vitamin B12 – can boost your energy. While this may not specifically change your outer beauty immediately, it can help you slim down those last couple pounds that were bothering you. Another option you have is vitamin C. This particular injection can help you build up your collagen, smoothing out wrinkles and giving you a more youthful appearance.

We also have the option of giving your body a big vitamin booster, which will burn off excess fat and provide an all-day energy boost. This is full of a myriad of B vitamins, all of which our bodies need to run their best.

Discovering Exciting New Health and Physical Wellness Treatments

Discovering Exciting New Health and Physical Wellness Treatments

There are so many minimally or non-invasive beauty therapies available today for the first time. Long gone are the days of anything short of surgery having a noticeable and lasting effect. With some of these treatments you can even target specific parts of the body for improvement.

Perhaps you want something to firm up loose skin around your neck or chin. Some folks may be interested in getting rid of cellulite in a problem area. Still, others may be looking for something to brighten their skin tone and make it look and feel more youthful. Here are a few examples of some of the many exciting options available in this field:

Facial Therapies

For those who were interested in a more vibrant and youthful appearance, the BB Glow just might do the trick. It is a micro-needling treatment which smoothes out wrinkles and minimizes the appearance of pores. Additionally, the hyaluronic acid helps to give the skin a more plump texture and radiant glow. The effects of these therapies tend to last several months.

Body Therapies

People seek out body treatments many times for things that dieting and exercise don’t seem to help with. This includes small but stubborn amounts of weight such as 5 or 10 pounds. Love handles, muffin tops, upper arm cellulite, as well as thighs and buttocks are all common problem areas. Hair removal is another example.

Therapies like Liposonix use heat to melt cellulite away. Radiofrequency therapy can reshape fat more evenly across an area of your body. UC treatments melt fat down into a liquid which exits the body in the same way as all other liquids. Each of these is non-surgical.

Various Other Wellness Therapies

There are several other treatments that Body by Mia may be able to offer you, depending on what it is that you are looking for. Mesotherapy can help with everything from fat removal to facials to re-growing hair. Get in contact with us today to find out more about how we can help you achieve the look that you see when you look in the mirror.
