Ultherapy® Versus elōs® SUBLIME: Which Will Provide Me With a Better Lift?

Posted January 15, 2020 in Laser Treatments, Ultherapy®

2 Minute Read: 

Many individuals are on the lookout for a cosmetic treatment that will tighten skin and restore youthful facial contours. And often, these individuals are not only looking for something that works but something that will work without requiring downtime or extensive surgery.

Nonsurgical skin tightening procedures can smooth wrinkles around the lips.

Fortunately, there are several nonsurgical treatments that will do just that. Two of these are Ultherapy® and elōs® SUBLIME.

What is Ultherapy®?

Ultherapy® is an anti-aging treatment that uses ultrasonic waves to heat the tissues in the skin. The treatment lifts and tightens the skin and underlying subcutaneous tissue, giving a more youthful and toned appearance.

Ultherapy® counteracts the effects of gravity and age by lifting the brows, areas of the face, and neck. This restores a youthful contour to the neck, jowls, and under-chin area.

The Ultherapy® process stimulates collagen production in the skin and underlying tissues to reduce wrinkles and lift the skin. The doctor uses ultrasound technology to target specific areas.

Ultherapy® is considered by some to be a “nonsurgical facelift.” While this cannot provide the same results as its surgical counterpart, patients can experience significant tightening. Patients require no downtime and can get back to their lives immediately after treatment.

What is elōs® SUBLIME Treatment?

The elōs® SUBLIME is a new FDA-approved skin treatment that provides facial tightening without invasive methods. 

The elōs® SUBLIME uses infrared light technology and radiofrequency to stimulate collagen production. Patients see a reduction in wrinkles, sagging skin, and fine lines around the face and neck.

As the elōs® SUBLIME treatment is noninvasive, patients require no downtime following a session. The process does not require an anesthetic or numbing cream.

Ultherapy® vs. elōs® SUBLIME: Which of These Treatments Is Right for You?

Ultherapy® is ideal for those who are feeling the impacts of age or who have recently lost a lot of weight and now have loose skin in the face and neck. 

The elōs® SUBLIME offers facial rejuvenation as well as full-body treatment. While this is primarily used on the face, it can also tighten skin on the abdomen, upper arms, and knees.

Typically, patients may see longer results with elōs® SUBLIME. Ultherapy® offers results for one  to two years, while elōs® SUBLIME can last for several years. 

Both treatments work best with follow up visits.
