With the advance of science and technology, a lot of treatments were invented and developed to cater and address different cosmetic problems. One commonly brought out problem is the need to undergo fat reduction treatments and tighten some areas of the skin to make it more defined and contoured. Luckily, Exilis Ultra and Ultherapy were developed in order to fix this problem. While these two are similar in many ways and effective in fulfilling their purpose, it is still important to know the difference so as to know which treatment will be the right and proper treatment.
Exilis Ultra is a safe noninvasive treatment that addresses skin sagging by improving the overall texture of the skin. It utilizes both radio frequency and ultrasound to heat and eliminate the fat lying deep into the skin. Additionally, this procedure encourages collagen production and elastin.
This treatment can be used in different parts of the face and body which is highly incredible since it is by far the only treatment which can do so. Common areas that can be treated with Exilis Ultra are the eyes, cheeks, chin, neck, arms, abdomen, waist and thighs.
Ultherapy on the other hand, is also a safe treatment that doesn’t involve knives. It likewise addresses the skin sagging and excess fats by utilizing ultrasound that delivers pulses of energy to break down fat. Since it primarily uses ultrasound, the treated areas will be exposed to more heated pulses that will penetrate deeper into the skin layers. This means that there is a bigger chance of stimulating collagen production as well as a more refined skin tightening results.
However, the main difference between the two treatments is that Ultherapy is developed to specifically treat the eyebrows, chin, neck and chest areas.
