Houston Ultherapy Treatment

If you’ve not visited West Houston Dermatology recently, you’re missing out on innovative skin tightening and lifting technology called Ultherapy.  Ultherapy is a clinically proven medical aesthetic treatment that acts as a non-surgical facelift.  Experts at Northwestern University performed a clinical evaluation on Ultherapy’s effectiveness, and nine in ten subjects showed a clinically significant brow elevation as well as lifting and tightening of the skin in other areas.  Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to target the skin and the supportive matrix under the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin, which naturally lifts the skin.  This can be accomplished in one office visit and treatment lasting between 1-2 hours depending on the extent of treatment.  Ultherapy firms and lifts skin on both the face and neck without the necessity of surgical intervention.  This means no downtime, incisions, or the potential for infection.
