Ultherapy vs. BOTOX Cosmetic for Anti-Aging
At Periodontal Associates, LLC in Englewood, NJ, we offer non-surgical aesthetic treatments in addition to periodontal therapy. We believe in providing our patients with the most advanced treatment options to help them achieve their skin rejuvenation goals. While many patients are familiar with BOTOX® Cosmetic, Ultherapy® is a popular BOTOX alternative that can help patients achieve a younger-looking appearance by stimulating the natural development of collagen instead of injecting botulinum toxin. Drs. Pooja Patil and Chetan Patil can administer Ultherapy safely and effectively using ultrasound technology for long-lasting results. Here, we will explore Ultherapy vs BOTOX Cosmetic, and will discuss the results that can be achieved with both options.
BOTOX Cosmetic vs Ultherapy: Similarities and Differences
As time passes, environmental elements and gravity can make the skin appear saggy, tired, and wrinkled. At some point, many people desire to reduce the signs of aging and regain a more youthful appearance. Ultherapy and BOTOX Cosmetic are both nonsurgical anti-aging solutions, and they both have one primary goal: to deliver smooth, radiant skin. Recovery time is similar as well, with virtually zero downtime. Both treatments may involve slight discomfort or bruising during the healing process. However, these side effects subside within a few days. Although the two products deliver similar results, there are a few distinct differences between the two.
BOTOX, or botulinum toxin, involves injecting small amounts of the substance just under the skin. This treatment fills in fine lines and wrinkles and delivers a smoother appearance instantaneously. Commonly used to reduce or eliminate crow’s feet, forehead creases, and other wrinkles, BOTOX must be administered every few months to maintain the desired results.
Although the two products deliver similar results, there are a few distinct differences between the two.
In contrast to BOTOX, Ultherapy utilizes ultrasound technology rather than injections. This procedure actively stimulates your own body’s collagen production, which in turn lifts the skin and smooths its texture. Ultherapy is an excellent way to add firmness and elasticity to lax or loose skin. In fact, this treatment is routinely used to address sagging in the cheeks and jawline, as well as lines around the mouth and nose. This treatment can be performed in our office in approximately one hour. While the results typically take about two to three months to fully mature, many patients require only one treatment session.
Ultherapy is a Natural Alternative to BOTOX Cosmetic
Both BOTOX and Ultherapy are safe, effective, and well-tested procedures. However, many patients choose Ultherapy because it is an all-natural alternative to BOTOX and does not introduce foreign substances into the body.
