Lift, Tighten, and Smooth: How Ultherapy Can Take Years Off Your Appearance

Thanks to innovative therapies like Ultherapy®, it’s possible to achieve smoother, tighter, younger-looking skin without the need for surgery or extended downtime.

There’s a reason Ultherapy® is quickly becoming the gold standard in the field of anti-aging medicine. Ultherapy is a noninvasive skin tightening treatment that uses ultrasound to lift and rejuvenate skin on the face, forehead, and neck, and it requires no downtime.

Board-certified anti-aging medicine specialist David Reeves, MD, FACOG, and the team at Medical Aesthetics & Laser in The Woodlands, Texas, offer innovative therapies to combat the signs of aging. Ultherapy smooths out wrinkles and tightens sagging skin for a younger, more rejuvenated appearance. 

What is Ultherapy?

Your face has a structure that consists of many elements, including muscle fibers and collagen. These elements help give your face shape, and over time, they can break down and diminish in supply, which can lead to sagging and wrinkles.

Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to penetrate skin and muscle tissue. And, as the body responds to the treatment, this leads to tighter skin and increased collagen production.

Ultherapy works in a two-step process. The first stage is collagen contraction and denaturation, which results in an immediate tissue tightening and lift. The second stage develops over time as the body's healing response creates new collagen.

New collagen is produced over the course of 2-3 months and often continues for 6 months after the treatment. After 3-6 months, full results should be noticeable. 

What can Ultherapy treat?

Ultherapy can tighten skin and reduce wrinkles in the face, neck, chest, and forehead. It can also help reduce sun damage. And, in patients with drooping or hooded brows, Ultherapy can help lift these areas.

Because of its properties, Ultherapy can treat all of these areas without affecting the surface of the skin. And what’s more, it’s noninvasive, no anesthesia is needed, and zero downtime is required,


The people who can most benefit from Ultherapy are those whose skin and tissue laxity is mild to moderate.

What happens during Ultherapy?

First, we discuss your goals, perform a thorough evaluation, and design a treatment plan. Then we cleanse your skin and take photos to track the results.

Then we use an ultrasound probe to deliver energy at the precise temperature for your treatment. To keep you comfortable, we apply ice-cold rollers to the treatment areas before the energy is delivered.

Depending on the size of the treatment areas, the process can be completed in 30-90 minutes. A follow-up appointment is planned to take post-treatment photos.

Patients usually only require one procedure, but treatment plans are tailored to each patient's skin laxity and treatment goals. For patients who show moderate or marked signs of aging, we often recommend a plan with 2-3 Ultherapy sessions 3-4 weeks apart.
