Ultherapy® is a gentle skin tightening procedure that uses ultrasound technology to rejuvenate the skin. At Layton Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we are proud to offer this treatment to residents of Houston, Kerrville, San Antonio, and the nearby areas of Texas.
What is Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that uses gentle sound waves to strengthen the skin and make it firmer. By using ultrasound technology, the procedure works deep below the skin’s surface, reviving the skin and creating new collagen. The Ultherapy® treatment requires no surgery and no incisions, which makes it a great option for patients who would like to avoid surgery or who are looking for subtle rejuvenation benefits. It can also be an effective option for prolonging the results of facelifts or other skin tightening treatments.
How Much Does Ultherapy® Cost?
The cost of an Ultherapy® treatment can range from $500 to $4,800 depending on the areas being treated. During your consultation, Dr. Layton will be able to provide you with a treatment plan that matches your specific needs. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. We also offer financing services to help make this and other treatments more affordable.
What is the Ultherapy® Treatment Like?
Ultherapy® is an in-office procedure that requires no anesthetic. During the treatment, the Ultherapy® handpiece will be maneuvered over the skin, delivering gentle ultrasound energy to the skin. You may feel a warm or tingling sensation during this process, but it is generally well-tolerated by patients. After the entire surface is treated, the treatment is complete. There is no downtime after Ultherapy®, so patients will be able to resume work and other normal activities right after their appointment. You may experience minor redness or skin sensitivity, but these effects are brief and typically fade within a few hours.
When Will I Notice Results from Ultherapy®?
Patients may notice subtle results immediately after their treatment, but it takes time for the full results of treatment to become visible. Once collagen is produced and begins to take effect in the body, you will notice more significant results. This can take up to three months after your treatment. In some cases, we may recommend multiple treatment sessions to achieve optimal results.
