If your skin is not as tight as you'd like, Legacy Dermatology & Restoration Center can help to improve its laxity with Ultherapy, a noninvasive intervention for loose facial and neck skin. With approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Ultherapy's ultrasound energy can improve the firmness of your skin in a short treatment. After your session and as your skin begins to heal itself, your body produces more collagen to repair the skin. Dermatologist Jennifer Dharamsi, M.D. and her team of providers are proud to offer Ultherapy to Frisco, TX women and men. This procedure can be performed in combination with other nonsurgical skin procedures, such as laser skin resurfacing or an injectable, to leave the skin looking softer and younger.
"Everything!!! Dr. Farid Dharamsi is the best!!! I have been going to them since mid summer. From fillers, Ultherapy, and now today Halo laser.. I won’t lie it feels like a mild sunburn a few hours after treatment but Dr Farid was very thorough on letting me know what he was treating and making sure I was comfortable. I can’t wait to see the results!! I respect his opinion. Everyone in office is so nice and friendly too! Thanks everyone, sorry if I wasn’t so talkative at the end of appointment. My face couldn’t wait to get home and put on cold mask! 😆"- J.L. / Facebook / Dec 08, 2020
Women and men can both benefit from treatments with Ultherapy. If you are noticing that your facial skin has become looser with mild to moderate lines and wrinkles (near the mouth, brow, and eyes), or noticing a slight droop in the jowls, you may be a good candidate for Ultherapy. If you have more severe sagging or dynamic wrinkles, then a ThreadLift may be a better option for you.
When you get to our office, you will be asked to relax in our minor procedures room where a team member will prepare your treatment area, which may include the application of a numbing cream. For the treatment, a handheld device that focuses energy from ultrasound waves will glide over your skin. Depending on the number of areas you are having treated, your session may last about 30 – 90 minutes.
What to Expect
It is normal for your skin to be mildly pink and irritated after your treatment, but you can use cold packs and take over-the-counter medication to treat the pain and inflammation. You may also apply makeup after your treatment and resume your day as normal. Ultherapy won't show results immediately. You will need time for your skin to adjust and heal after each Ultherapy treatment. With the increase in collagen, your skin will firm in about 6 – 8 months.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much Ultherapy cost?
The cost of your Ultherapy treatment will depend on your condition, the number of areas being treated, and your cosmetic goals. During your initial consult, we will be able to estimate your costs based on your custom treatment plan. We often offer discounts on multi-treatment packages so be sure to ask about our monthly specials during your visit.
What areas does Ultherapy treat?
Ultherapy can treat many areas of concern, including the chest, neck, and face. It is also a great treatment option for men and women who are noticing dynamic wrinkles on their neck and face as this helps attain a more youthful appearance. Ultherapy is highly beneficial in the treatment of loose skin around the neck and offers impressive skin tightening in this area.
Do I need multiple Ultherapy treatments?
Maybe. While many of our patients experience noticeable results after one session, most of our patients undergo several treatments to meet their cosmetic goals. The number of sessions needed depends on your skin condition and aesthetic goals.
Am I a candidate for Ultherapy?
You may be a candidate for Ultherapy if the skin on your face and/or neck has become lax. Those with sagging skin beneath the chin are excellent candidates for the treatment.
