EXPERT Q&A

Q: Why would you use Ulthera rather than an injection or filler like Botox or Restylane?

What our experts say:

The perfect example is for a nonsurgical browlift. If somebody has heavy eyelids, due to muscles of the forehead dropping down, you would not want to put Botox or Dysport or a neuromodulator in that person's forehead because they'll lose their ability to lift the brow and their eyelids are going to seem heavier. That's the main difference there. You would want to do this in a situation where you're trying to make the eyes look bigger and more wide open. The true surgical alternative for this is a browlift. You can get some brow elevation with Botox by treating just the depressor muscles of the brow but that means no treatment whatsoever of the forehead. In Ulthera one pass is delivered to the muscle but the second pass is delivered to the dermis, where the collagen producing cells are. So it's a dual treatment, you are tightening the muscle but you're also building collagen. It takes about three months to see the results.
