Loose and sagging skin can be treated safely, gently, non-invasively and with no downtime with FDA-approved Ultherapy. This one-of-a-kind skin tightening treatment uses ultrasound technology to penetrate the skin to stimulate collagen so firmer skin results. Houston area cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Sumpter, recommends Ultherapy for patients who don’t want to have surgery to treat the loose skin above the eyebrows, under the chin and around the neck. While not producing the same dramatic results as a facelift, Ultherapy is a great alternative to the surgery, producing younger-looking, firmer skin.
Good candidates for Ultherapy have skin that has relaxed to the point of looking less firm. Sagging skin on the eyebrows, on the neck, or under the chin are often the first signs of maturing skin. Typically, those in their 30s and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates.
What to Expect@headingTag>
A treatment takes 1 to 3 hours and does not involve downtime. There may be some initial effect, but lifting and toning may take 2 to 3 months and further improvements can appear up to 6 months following a treatment. Most patients need only one treatment. Some will have a benefit from additional treatments depending on how much laxity exists and how an individual's biology responds to the treatment. The result can last up to 2 years.
Benefits of Ultherapy@headingTag>
While Ultherapy is not a replacement for surgery, such as a face lift, it is a nice, viable option for someone either wanting to delay or preferring not to have a face lift, or even someone wanting to prolong some effects of cosmetic surgery.

"I could not have imagined a better experience. The doctor was extremely upfront and detailed about the pricing as well as what to expect during the procedure. She even suggested we go a cheaper route on my mother in laws Botox which was refreshing to say the least not to feel like you're being up sold instead of genuinely counseled. My pain tolerance level is lower than low and she went to every length possible to make me comfortable all while being very friendly and reassuring. My results for lip injections were absolutely fantastic. My entire family now wants to make an appointment here to have theirs done! I will be back for all of my cosmetic needs and so will all my family."- C.S. / Yelp / May 27, 2016
