Ultherapy® treatment at Rodgers Dermatology in Frisco, TX.
Have you noticed the skin around your eyebrows, eyelids, jawline and neck start to droop or get looser as you’ve aged? You’re not alone, but there is a solution for residents of the Frisco, Texas, area!
As we age, our skin loses its elasticity. This is especially noticeable across the face and neck for many men and women. At Rodgers Dermatology, Dr. Timothy Rodgers uses Ultherapy® to stimulate collagen production deep within the skin. This invigorates and encourages a more youthful appearance. It will also reduce the appearance of jowls, drooping eyebrows, hooded eyelids, and fine lines and wrinkles around the neck and decolletage.
What is Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is the only FDA-approved, non-invasive cosmetic treatment specifically designed to lift and tighten the skin on the neck, chin and brow. It’s also the only non-invasive treatment specifically FDA-cleared to improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
How does it work?
As your skin ages, collagen fibers that provide internal support become worn.
Ultherapy® uses focused ultrasound to stimulate collagen to tighten skin. Ultherapy’s ultrasound energy reaches deep below the skin surface of your skin to initiate your body’s natural repair process. Over time, this results in the creation of new, healthy, strong collagen and a variety of positive skin changes. This method is natural and non-invasive.
Sagging eyelid skin, loose skin under the chin, and loose skin on the neck can be safely and easily treated, with no downtime, surgery, or needles.
Typically, one treatment will be enough for the majority of patients. But since each individual’s skin is different, there may be a benefit to multiple treatments. Our experts will help determine how many treatments you might need and what that timeline might look like. This will depend mostly on how much skin laxity you have and your body’s response to the ultrasound and the collagen-building process.
Additionally, Ultherapy® treatments each year could help maintain results in the long-term.
Most patients see immediate improvement, and then continued improvement over 6 months.
While Ultherapy® treatments are safer than similar procedures for skin rejuvenation, there are some minor side effects.
A small percentage of patients can experience some of the following:
- Mild redness on the surface of our skin
- Slight swelling
- Sensitivity to touch
- Temporary numbness on a small area of the skin
The professionals at Rodgers Dermatology know how to perform these procedures in the safest way possible. With well-practiced strategies, our experts will minimize the risk of side effects and provide advice for how to proceed post-procedure.
When preparing for your treatment, there are several things you should do to minimize the risk of side effects and ensure your Ultherapy® procedure goes well. Some of the preparations you should make include:
- Avoid excessive sun exposure for at least 1 week prior to your treatment.
- Avoid topical products containing retinoids, glycolic acid or salicylic acid for at least 3 days prior to the Ultherapy procedure. These products can irritate the skin.
- Avoid taking Aspirin, Vitamin E, Ginger, Ginseng, garlic, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) like ibuprofen 7-10 days prior to the procedure.
- These drugs and herbs can increase risk of excessive bleeding or bruising.
- Don’t wear makeup to your appointment.
Ultherapy prices can vary depending on the areas being treated. In order to get an accurate cost or estimate, we suggest calling our office and setting up a consultation.
Treatment can last up to 2 years depending on an individual’s skin type and condition. Some patients benefit from multiple sessions or yearly follow-up procedures.
In general, Ultherapy® doesn’t cause pain. There may be some discomfort during the procedure and afterwards. Some topical numbing and anesthesia may also be used to reduce any discomfort.
