If your self-confidence is affected by skin that is not as taut or toned as you wish it was, Novo Med Spa can help to improve its laxity with Ultherapy, a nonsurgical procedure designed for the treatment of loose facial, neck, and chest skin. With approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Ultherapy’s ultrasound energy can increase the laxity of your skin in a fast, easy treatment session that is tolerable and does not require a long recovery period. After your treatment, as your skin begins to heal itself, your body will naturally create more collagen, repairing the skin. Novo Med Spa medical director Dr. Jerry Lewis is proud to offer Ultherapy to Frisco, TX patients. This procedure can be performed in conjunction with other skin rejuvenating services, such as laser skin resurfacing or an injectable, for dynamic results that leave you looking and feeling youthful and revitalized.
Both men and women can benefit from Ultherapy. If you are beginning to notice that your facial skin has become less firm with mild to moderate wrinkles (in the areas around the brow, eyes, and mouth), or you have noticed a slight droop in the jowls, you may be a good candidate for Ultherapy treatments at Novo Med Spa. If you have more developed sagging or deeper lines and wrinkles, Ultherapy may not provide the results you desire. Speak with Dr. Lewis during your consultation to learn whether Ultherapy is an ideal solution for you.
When you arrive for your Ultherapy session, you will be asked to lie down comfortably in our minor procedures room where one of our med spa professionals will prepare your treatment area. We may apply a topical or local anesthetic before beginning your treatment. To complete your procedure, a handheld device that uses ultrasound energy waves will glide over your skin. Depending on the number of areas you are having treated, your sessions may last an average of 30 – 90 minutes. It is common for your skin to look somewhat pink and inflamed right after treatment. We recommend the use of cold compresses and over-the-counter pain medication to reduce any discomfort and inflammation. You may apply makeup after your session (if you wish) and return to your daily activities right away.
Ultherapy treatments do not show results immediately. Additionally, it may take a while for the skin around your treatment area to heal after your session. As collagen production is stimulated during the treatment, your skin will become more toned over time with results that are fully apparent around 6 – 8 months.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What areas does Ultherapy treat?
Ultherapy can be used to treat several areas of the body, including the face, neck, and chest. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Ultherapy was designed to address loose skin for a rejuvenated, smooth appearance.
Who should get Ultherapy?
Any male or female patient who desires smoother, healthier skin is an ideal candidate for Ultherapy. While your results will be gradual, they will be significant and lasting. Ultherapy is an ideal solution for those who still have a good skin tone but are beginning to notice laxity in certain areas of the body.
Will I see results from Ultherapy right away?
Ultherapy does not provide immediate improvements. Optimal results typically become apparent a few months after your session. Patients may also enjoy a boost to their results with a follow-up session approximately a year after their initial treatment.
Do I need multiple Ultherapy treatments?
Generally speaking, most patients see significant results with a single treatment. However, the number of sessions needed will depend on the condition of your skin, as well as your aesthetic goals.
