Ultherapy, a non-surgical alternative to a facelift, offers incredible results by using ultrasound energy to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and reverse signs of aging. Treatment lifts and tightens skin around the:
Immediate results are not noticeable; it will take three to six months for the final results to be revealed. The new collagen created will strengthen the structure of the skin for a refreshed and revitalized appearance that takes years off the patients appearance.
Is Ultherapy Treatment Right for Me?
Before beginning ultherapy treatment, we recommend that patients come in for a consultation at our Houston medical spa. During this appointment, we will go through some simple questions about your medical history and perform an examination to determine if ultherapy is the right treatment for you. Good candidates for ultherapy are:
- Typically in their 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s, and experiencing the signs of maturing skin.
- Looking to enhance or prolong the results of a facelift by encouraging collagen growth to maintain firm and refreshed skin.
- Patients who want the benefits of rejuvenated skin without the recovery time of a facelift.
While the effects of ultherapy will not equal that of a facelift, many of our patients are so pleased with the results that they decide to not to have a facelift and continue ultherapy treatment for years.
Ultherapy: The Natural Way to Lift and Tighten
Our skin is made of many layers bound together with compounds that make it firm and youthful. Collagen, a protein that helps our skin hold its structure, is one of the main compounds that creates firm and supple skin. As we age, our supply of collagen decreases and our skin becomes lax and begins to sag. Ultherapy is a way to regain lost collagen by:
- Prompting the body to grow more collagen.
- Replacing collagen lost through aging.
- Reversing the signs of aging such as sagging skin.
A few months after treatment, Houston patients will look years younger without enduring the pain and time commitment needed to recover from a facelift.
Why Does It Take Months to See Results?
Ultherapy works by triggering your body’s natural production of collagen. This process takes between three to six months, and, over time, the new collagen gradually firms and lifts your skin. After treatment, you may see a slight difference, but the real change happens in the months following your procedure.

How Many Ultherapy Treatments Will I Need?
We recommend that our patients return for additional ultherapy treatment at the onset of skin laxity. This will help you maintain results that look natural and avoid undergoing additional procedures to tighten your skin. After your first treatment, you will have an idea of how your body responds and we can plan follow-up appointments based on your goals for the procedure.
