If your skin is not as tight as you'd like, Ellsworth Plastic Surgery can help improve its laxity with Ultherapy, a noninvasive intervention for loose facial, neck, and décolletage 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, as the skin begins to heal itself, your body produces more collagen to repair the skin. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Warren Ellsworth IV is proud to offer Ultherapy to Houston, 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 revitalized.

I then had to lay on my side for 5 weeks in an LTAC facility.Dr. Ellsworth and his staff took very good care of me pre and post-op, which was over 1 year. He has an exceptional bedside manner. He and his entire staff are very professional. He takes time with his patients.In addition, Dr. Ellsworth did a procedure on our 22 year old son to remove excess skin from his tummy after he lost 65 lbs."- B.V. / Google / Jul 30, 2016

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, eyes, and brow), or noticing a slight droop in the jowls, you may be a good candidate for Ultherapy. If you have more severe sagging or deeper lines and wrinkles, facelift surgery may be a more suitable choice 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 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 sessions may last about 30 – 90 minutes. It is very common for your skin to be mildly pink and irritated. You can use cold packs and take over-the-counter pain medication to treat the pain and inflammation. You may apply makeup after your treatment and continue your normal day.
What to Expect
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.
