What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is an FDA-Approved non-invasive procedure that uses state of the art ultrasound energy to the area of concern, the procedure stimulates the collagen to the foundational layer of the skin. This procedure addresses surface issues for patients without the need of cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. Plastic surgery can be a difficult decision that our professional surgeons can help you navigate. Adding Ultherapy in Georgetown will open up opportunities for corrective cosmetic treatment that will keep you safe and serves as a new option from the invasive nature of surgery.

How does Ultherapy work?
Utilizing ultrasound energy, Ultherapy allows our therapists to bypass the surface of the skin without using the aides of lasers, radio frequency, and invasive surgical techniques to deliver the results our patients desire.
Ultrasound energy triggers a natural rejuvenation under the skin which spurs the process of developing new collagen.
How long does it take for Ultherapy to show results?
Many patients will see initial results immediately after their treatment but the real results will appear over 2-3 months as the new collagen works to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin and brow as well as smooth skin on the chest.
Is Ultherapy more effective than a facelift?
Ultherapy will not duplicate the results of a facelift, but it is a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those who are not yet ready for surgery or who want to enhance the effects of previous cosmetic surgical procedures.
Ultherapy in Georgetown, how long does the Ultherapy treatment take?
The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
What are the side effects?
The skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are temporary in nature. Other, less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin. As with any medical procedure, there is the possibility for other rare effects, which your practitioner will review with you.
