A common question we receive from those looking for an alternative to a facelift is What are the differences between Ultherapy, Venus Freeze and Trinity.


The “Buzz” in the medical and patient community still is Ultherapy. Ultherapy is the only device FDA approved to tighten and lift the chin, neck and eyebrows. Even doctors who have both Thermage and Ultherapy, will recommend Ultherapy for firming sagging skin. Ultherapy uses ultrasound to go deeper, reaching down towards the SMAS with more precision, depth and heat which is what provides the lift and growth of collagen.

Venus Freeze

Venus Freeze is a pulsed magnetic field and radio frequency energy. The Venus Freeze “may” increase the production of collagen and elastin in skin. Currently the device is only FDA cleared for wrinkle reduction and all rest are claims by the manufacturer.

The Trinity

Trinity is NOT a laser, but a low level electrical current for “facial toning” and has an optional LED light attachment that is being “marketed” for “wrinkle reduction”. THIS IS NOT A LASER OR EVEN A MEDICAL-GRADE DEVICE.
