What is the difference between MFU technology and non-surgical thread lift?
Ultherapy's MFU technology uses three different wavelengths of ultrasonic energy. In contrast, the non-surgical thread lift uses absorbable sutures made from biodegradable materials to lift the face. Although this form of thread lift is non-surgical, it is still invasive and causes minor wounds on the face. On the other hand, Ultherapy's handpiece emits non-invasive energy to your face, lifting it naturally.
Who is not suitable for Ultherapy?
People with chronic diseases (i.e. immune system diseases, epilepsy, nervous system diseases); skin diseases (i.e. rosacea, eczema); strong medication prescriptions; implants, or those who are pregnant or breastfeeding are not suitable for this treatment.
What should I do after a Ultherapy session?
You need to apply a generous amount of sunscreen and moisturisers post-treatment as the skin is dry and sensitive. Also, you must not use skin care products containing AHA/BHA, whitening and exfoliating ingredients. Finally, to avoid skin irritation, don't go to hot places (i.e. saunas, hot springs).
What is the difference between Ultherapy and Thermage FLX?
Ultherapy uses ultrasonic waves, but Thermage FLX uses RF energy. Thermage FLX only penetrates 4.3mm deep into the skin; its primary goal is stimulating collagen growth for a naturally plumped face. Meanwhile, Ultherapy penetrates 4.5mm deep to lift the subcutaneous muscles, giving you powerful contouring results.
What happens during an Ultherapy treatment session?
MFU of triple-wavelength penetrates the SMAS layer, wrapping the entire face like a net, warming up the muscles to stimulate collagen production, effectively firming and smoothening the skin from the inside out.
