No matter how well you take care of your skin, time catches up with you eventually. When it does, you’ll probably want to roll back the clock a bit. So, what is the best skin tightening treatment for eliminating lines and wrinkles?

Profound® vs. Ultherapy®

Both treatments get the job done, but we find that Profound is the better option.

While there are numerous treatments on the market designed to tighten the skin, there are just two that truly stand out: Profound® and Ultherapy®. So, if your goal is to tighten your skin without surgery, your primary task is to decide between these two options.

While both of these options are solid choices, in our opinion, Profound comes out on top. Here’s why.

Profound Provides Precision Treatment

Ultherapy uses ultrasound waves to heat tissue on the face, neck and décolletage. These energy waves have to be calibrated to just the right level in order to stimulate collagen production.

Profound, on the other hand, uses tiny microneedles to penetrate deep into the dermis, where the radiofrequency energy is then delivered. This method of treatment is more effective at targeting the trouble areas and placing the heat energy precisely where it needs to be for optimal results.

Get Results in a Single Treatment

While both treatments can significantly reduce skin laxity, the path to tighter skin is much shorter with Profound. Profound only requires one treatment to achieve results, whereas Ultherapy requires up to three treatments.

In addition, Profound was found to have a 100% responsive rate in clinical trials. This means that 100% of the participants who received treatment saw an improvement in their skin. Alternatively, Ultherapy has been shown to have a 30% non-responsive rate.

Patients Prefer Profound

Profound treatments are faster and less painful than Ultherapy ones. They also tend to deliver longer-lasting results. Most report that they need a second Ultherapy session within six months, while Profound results can last 2 to 5 years or longer.
