Stand firm in the face of gravity—with Ultherapy®

Ultherapy Procedure

Our practice is among the first in the greater Houston area to offer the new Ultherapy® procedure for lifting and toning loose, lax skin — without surgery! We use tried and true ultrasound to strengthen your skin from the inside out, in a completely non-invasive way. Ultherapy® directs sound waves deep under the skin to lift and tighten loose skin, all without cutting or disrupting the surface. Ultherapy® also stimulates additional collagen formation to help the skin maintain its youthfulness.

Treatments of Ultherapy range from 30 to 60 minutes per procedure depending on the areas treated. Treatment areas include brow, upper face, mid-lower face and full face/neck. Ultherapy uses the body’s own healing response to gradually — and reliably — restore memory to the skin and its underlying tissue. Ultherapy needs minimal recuperation or preparation and typically only takes one treatment to get a meaningful response, since the procedure stimulates your own collagen production, how long the results last really depends on you.

Patients enjoy some initial effect immediately following the procedure, but the ultimate lifting effect will take place over 2 to 3 months, as tired collagen is rejuvenated and supplemented with new, stronger collagen. While Ultherapy does not duplicate the amount of lifting achievable by surgery, Ulthera has proven to be an inviting alternative for those who are not ready for surgery.
