Yes. Threading is dermatologist recemmonded especially for skin that uses retin-A or accutane. The great news is that threading affects the skin less than other removal methods. However it is normal to experience a little pinkness at site, but it should subside in 10-15 minutes. In rare cases, the area may remain red for 30 minutes to an hour. Majority of people who suffer breakouts from waxing or harsh depilatory creams will find relief after switching to threading. If you think your skin is is extra sensitive, we recommend not using the lotion or aloe gel that your threading expert usually applies, instead rub an ice cube on the threaded area for 10 minutes and pat dry it and refrain from using any face products for a few hours until the area is less sensitive.
Ultrasound is one of the newer technologies used in skin tightening and lifting. One of the popular systems in Ulthera. It allows me to safely deliver sound waves under the skin that focus to points at very specific depths. Think of the way a magnifying lens can take sunlight, focus that light onto a leaf, and leave a burn. With Ultherapy, ultrasound can pass right through the skin surface painlessly, but be focused to meet at a specific point at a specific depth under the skin. At this meeting point, the temperature goes up, stimulating collagen remodeling and collagen production. This procedure tends to be uncomfortable, but like the Thermage science, has become more comfortable with strategies that include lower energy delivery with more passes of the sound waves.
