What is the Difference Between Evoke and Ultherapy?

Featured Image

Sagging jowls and loose skin are particularly difficult to treat through diet and exercise alone. When drugstore products and creams no longer work, there are other skin tightening treatments to consider. Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery uses the advanced Evoke and Ultherapy® systems to rejuvenate your face and neck. Serving countless patients across Dallas, TX, Dr. Kevin Hanz is a board-certified plastic surgeon patients trust for beautiful and natural-looking results. Learn about the differences between Evoke and Ultherapy by reading below.

What is Evoke?

It is common for people to develop sagging jowls around the mouth after the age of 40. While this is often treated through facelift surgery, not everyone wants to go under the knife. Evoke effectively reduces the jowls using state-of-the-art radiofrequency (RF) energy. This energy penetrates the layers underneath the skin to remodel the tissue and muscles. The sophisticated technology monitors temperatures constantly, so the treated tissue remains unharmed, making recovery easy. Following treatment, patients notice better jawline definition and a greatly reduced double chin.

What is Ultherapy?

Collagen is a protein that gives your skin a firm and youthful quality. As we age, our skin naturally slows down collagen production, causing our skin to sag or droop downward. Ultherapy is a new skin tightening treatment that uses ultrasound technology to generate a thermal effect under the skin, jumpstarting collagen growth. The good news is that the Ultherapy device is safe for all skin tones and types. Patients can even return to their normal activities after their procedure. Ultherapy has a proven track record in patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their chin and jaw.

Candidates for skin tightening treatment

Fortunately, most adults showing early or mild signs of aging are candidates for Evoke and Ultherapy. Patients at Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery choose these treatments because they are not interested in the risk or downtime involved with plastic surgery. It is important to be relatively healthy before beginning any procedures, so please inform a member of our team about any medical conditions you may have.

When you arrive for a skin care consultation in Dallas, TX, Dr. Hanz can review your problem areas and develop custom solutions for you.
