If your skin is not as firm as it used to be, LCS Medical Spa can help to improve its laxity with ultherapy, a noninvasive, nonsurgical intervention for loose facial, chin, and neck skin. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), ultherapy's ultrasound energy can change the elasticity of your skin. Treatments are normally 30 – 90 minute session. After your appointment as your skin begins to heal itself, your body goes into a natural collagen production mode to repair the skin. Medical director Dr. Melanie Carreon is proud to offer ultherapy to Seguin, near New Braunfels, San Marcos, San Antonio, Austin, Houston TX for men and women. This procedure can be used in combination with other skin rejuvenation treatments, such as a facial or an injectable to leave the skin looking softer and younger.
"When I came to Dr. Carreon’s office I didn’t know what to expect. I had driven an hour and a half from my home just to find a “female doctor” who would understand my desire body shape. Mary put me at ease right away and Dr. Carreon fit me into her schedule right away. I’m delighted with my new waistline. It makes me feel young again, at 41."- Anonymous / Office Visit / May 10, 2009

"I had my lipo procedure with Dr. Melanie Carreon a couple of weeks ago and could not have asked for a better experience. From the consultation to the end, I felt like a priority. I was given more than enough information to help me through this process. The staff is very attentive and was ready to answer any questions I had. I was impressed that they checked on me the next day. I can't wait to see my final photos at my follow up appointment. I highly recommend Dr. Carreon!"- S.S. / Google / Sep 25, 2018
Men and women can both benefit from ultherapy treatments. If you have noticed that your facial skin has become more lax with mild to moderate lines (around the eyes, brow, and mouth), or noticing a slight droop in the jowls, you may be a good candidate for this nonsurgical treatment. If you have severe sagging or deeper lines and wrinkles, a surgical facelift may be a more suitable option for you.
When you arrive, you will be asked to lie down in our minor procedures room where we will prepare your treatment area, which may include the application of a numbing agent. During the procedure, a handheld device that emits ultrasound energy will glide over your skin. Depending on the number of areas you are having treated, your sessions may last around 30 – 90 minutes. It is usual for your skin to appear slightly pink and swollen. You can use ice packs and take an over-the-counter pain medication to decrease the pain and inflammation. You may apply makeup after your appointment and resume your day as usual.
What to Expect
This cosmetic procedure will not show results immediately. It will take some time for your skin to heal and adjust after the treatment. With the boost in collagen, the skin will tighten in about 6 – 8 months. May sure to talk with Dr. Carreon during your initial consultation to determine how frequently you should return for treatments. Each patient case is different and some patients may require more treatments than others.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost?
The cost of your ultherapy treatment will rely on your unique needs and the number of areas being addressed. During your first visit, we will discuss the recommended number of treatments and your estimated costs. Our MedSpa accepts many forms of payment and can help you find low-interest medical financing.
What areas does it treat?
Ultherapy can treat a variety of areas including the chest, neck, and face. Ultherapy is an FDA-approved treatment that has been widely used to address loose skin for a tighter, younger-looking appearance.
Who should get it?
Individuals who are averse to surgical cosmetic procedures can benefit the most with ultherapy. The results will be gradual, but the quality of improvement is significant as the healing starts within the skin. It is an ideal treatment for those who still have a good skin tone but are beginning to see signs of skin laxity. Most commonly, men and women seek this treatment to slow down aging effects.
Immediate improvement will not be readily seen right after treatment; however, optimal results become more noticeable after a few months. Typically, most patients opt to have a repeat treatment around 12 months after their initial session.
The number of sessions needed depends on your skin condition and aesthetic goals. Generally, most patients who still have a good skin tone can have significant results with a single treatment. For those who show more symptoms of aging, several treatments may be needed to produce the desired result.
