I love looking better…without looking like I had work done!

Ultherapy is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment. It uses ultrasound technology, developed by Ulthera to fight aging skin, restoring a more youthful quality without surgery. Dr. Daniel Leeman is proud to be among the first plastic surgeons in the greater Austin area to offer this breakthrough skin tightening treatment.

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a new type of nonsurgical procedure that uses medical ultrasound for cosmetic improvements of the skin. Ultherapy works deep below the surface without harming the surface layer of skin for firming, tightening and lifting. Improvements include a sleeker, more defined jawline and tighter skin on the neck under the chin.

Sagging skin on the cheeks can be tightened and lifted, which in turn improves the folds from the nose to the mouth, folds from the mouth to the jaw, and drooping corners of the mouth. Tightening of skin on the forehead can reduce the sagging skin on the eyelids and create a more open, refreshed look. Overall improvements in skin texture and evenness of color, as well as strengthening and a firmer, natural collagen cushion can be achieved with Ultherapy treatment.

How does a non-surgical facelift work?

As with other ultrasound procedures, a smooth applicator placed upon your skin projects an image onto a screen. This applicator delivers low levels of focused heat at a custom depth deep in the skin layers to trigger natural regeneration, leaving the surface of your skin undisturbed. Your skin’s response to the energy is to stimulate the growth of new natural collagen. You will observe some immediate tightening and lifting that improves over time.

Before & After

How is Ultherapy different from other non-surgical skin tightening procedures?

Ultherapy is the only skin rejuvenation procedure that employs ultrasound technology to treat the skin. The ability to utilize technologies to see below the skin and treat it with great precision helps to ensure both your safety and achieving a remarkable level of skin regeneration.

How many Ultherapy treatments will I need?

This will be determined by evaluating the condition of your skin, but we have achieved excellent clinical results after just one or two treatments. We will schedule a follow-up visit to take photographs and track your progress. Our goal is total satisfaction.

What are the benefits of Ultherapy?

  • Non-surgical
  • Non-invasive
  • Customized treatment to match your skin condition
  • Tightens loose, sagging skin
  • No post-treatment aftercare required
  • An alternative to fillers, facial surgery, or BOTOX

What areas of the face and neck are treated?

The system has been designed to treat the entire face and upper neck, or specific areas where you have concerns about aging skin. We can treat the lower face and neck, or just the forehead and temples, or both. A tailored treatments plan will be developed at your private consultation.

What kind of results can I expect from Ultherapy?

The regenerative process is initiated at the time of your treatment, with the full effect building gradually over the course of two to three months. In the FDA clinical trial, nine out of ten patients had a visible, significant lift at the brow line. This resulted in a more open look to the eyes and a more youthful facial appearance. Patients also reported firmer, tighter, more supple skin in other areas of the face and neck. A smoother texture and more even skin tone are also possible benefits.

Procedure FAQ's

What does Ultherapy feel like?

Comfort levels vary from person to person, but you do not need anesthesia to have this treatment. Our patients tell us that the sensation feels like a momentary prickling or heat beneath the skin. This is the ultrasound energy being delivered into the tissue, how Ultherapy lifts and tightens your facial skin for a more youthful, fresh look.

How long do Ultherapy results last?

Your skin will continue to age as the years pass, so you may need to schedule an annual touch-up visit to maintain your results. The Northwestern University study followed patients up to 10 months, with skin quality improvement still visible.

Can anyone have an Ultherapy treatment?

A good candidate is someone with skin that has relaxed to the point of sagging and feeling less firm. A lowered brow line or loose skin on the eyelids, for instance, is often the first sign of maturing skin. We will evaluate if you are an appropriate candidate at the time of your consultation.

Is Ultherapy safe?

Ultherapy is FDA-approved, and uses ultrasound energy, which has been used in medical imaging and therapeutics, such as sonograms, for over 50 years, and clinical studies have confirmed the safety of this latest application. As with any medical procedure, there are general safety considerations, which we will review with you before your treatment.

Why choose Dr. Leeman for Ultherapy?

There is no safer way to rejuvenate your skin than ensuring your treatment is performed under the care of a double board-certified plastic surgeon with years of experience. Dr. Leeman is one of the rare surgeons who holds two credentials, both as a plastic and reconstructive surgeon and as an otolaryngology specialist for head and neck surgery. Never trust your skin – or your appearance – to any practitioner without professional board-certification, particularly for facial treatments.
