Does combining various procedures like Ulthera and Thermage make them more effective?
This really depends on WHAT you are combining. A general rule of thumb is that combining procedures that do different things is better. For example, injecting with hyaluronic acid fillers to optimal volume (NOT overfilled) and combining that with a radiofreqency or laser skin tightening procedure to “shrink the envelope” just slightly makes more sense then just continuing to overfill.
In your case, these are two sound wave based technologies. In my opinion, combining eyelid Thermage (mild tightening) with an eyelid Fraxel or CO2 laser (better for crepiness plus some tightening) makes more sense then two very similar procedures.
Hope this helps, Dr. I
