Ultherapy is one of our nonsurgical treatments offered by our plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. S. Benjamin Albright, at Albright Plastic Surgery. This procedure uses a unique combination of ultrasound and radiofrequency energy to target the deep tissues of the face, neck, and chest area that have become lax and loose over time. Without harming the surrounding skin, the heating technology causes the collagen to reproduce within the tissues and the skin to grow back tighter and firmer for a more youthful look. If you are in The Woodlands and Houston, TX area and are in need of a nonsurgical approach to reducing your sagging and wrinkled skin, then we invite you to contact our office to learn more about ultherapy.
Men and women can both benefit from ultherapy treatments. If you have noticed your facial skin becoming lax with mild to moderate facial wrinkles (around the mouth, eyes, and brow), or a slight drooping in the jowls, you may be a good candidate for this nonsurgical treatment. If you have severe sagging, or deeper lines and wrinkles, a surgical facelift may be a more suitable option for you.
What to Expect
You will be asked to lie down in our minor procedures room where we will prepare your treatment area, which may include the application of a numbing agent. During the procedure, a handheld device that emits the ultrasound energy will glide over your skin. Depending on the number of areas you are having treated, your sessions may last 30 – 90-minutes. It is very common for your skin to appear pink and slightly swollen. You can use ice packs and take Ibuprofen to decrease the pain and inflammation the treatment may cause. Women may apply makeup after their appointment and go about their day as normal.
This cosmetic procedure will not show results immediately. It will take some time for your skin to heal and adjust to what the ultherapy treatment has done to your skin. With the boost in collagen, the skin will tighten over time. You may see some fluctuations in your facial appearance, but keep in mind that your results may take up to six months to appear.
