Ultherapy® Tightens Skin and Reverses Collagen Loss

Ultherapy® is the only aesthetic procedure that harnesses ultrasound energy to boost collagen, tightening and lifting your skin. It produces noticeable improvements, and does so without cutting or the need for downtime.

Collagen is the foundation of your skin’s structure, and key to maintaining youthful-looking skin. This vital protein gives your skin support, strength, and structure. When you pinch your skin, it snaps back into place thanks to collagen. It holds your skin in firm and gives it a plump, youthful appearance.

Unfortunately, collagen doesn’t last forever. As you age, collagen levels naturally decline, and as they do so, sagging skin and wrinkles form, making you look older. Previously, invasive surgical procedures such as facelifts were the only option for tightening sagging facial skin. Today, with the help of Ultherapy®, which uses ultrasound technology, our highly skilled team at Medical Aesthetics & Laser in The Woodlands, Texas, can tighten your skin and restore your youthful glow.

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that uses Ultrasound technology to stimulate the production of new collagen and tightens the “SMAS” muscular.

SMAS (Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System) is a thin layer of strong connective tissue on the face.  With age, the SMAS membrane begins to lose its elasticity, which can lead to a cascading effect on the face such as sagging cheeks along the jaw bone, fleshy jowls, droopy brows, a double chin and more noticeable nasolabial folds.

This treatment is a game-changer for men and women seeking a non-invasive approach to combat the signs of aging. An ideal approach to lifting and tightening the skin naturally.

Why collagen matters

Collagen is the protein responsible for giving your skin structure, elasticity, and resilience. It keeps skin firm, yet supple. A loss of collagen is one of the primary factors in signs of skin aging.

Ultherapy works by gently heating the deeper layers of the skin, encouraging your body to kick-start new collagen production. This process, known as neocollagenesis, helps to gradually lift and tighten the skin, reducing wrinkles and improving overall skin texture.

The Ultherapy advantage

Here are a few key advantages of Ultherapy:

Noninvasive with zero downtime

Unlike surgical options, Ultherapy doesn't require any cutting, anesthesia, or a need to schedule time off from your regular activities. When you leave our office, you can return to your daily activities immediately after the treatment. This makes it ideal for anyone with a busy lifestyle who doesn’t have the time or desire for an extended recovery period. 

Natural results

Ultherapy harnesses your body's natural healing process to rejuvenate your skin. The results appear gradually over two to three months as new collagen forms. The result is a natural-looking lift without anyone knowing you had help.

Precision and safety

Ultherapy uses ultrasound imaging, allowing your Medical Aesthetics & Laser provider to see the layers of tissue being treated. This ensures that we deliver energy precisely where it's most beneficial. This accuracy makes Ultherapy one of the safest skin-tightening procedures available today.

Long-lasting effects

While no treatment can stop the aging process, Ultherapy offers durable results. Many of our patients enjoy the benefits of their treatment for over a year. Opting for touch-ups can ensure that you maintain excellent results.
