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.
"I had Lipo 360 done and I am very happy with my results. I never though I would have something like this done, but I am soo glad I did! I actually have a waist now! The entire process was very easy and I returned back to work within 4 days. I was a little worried because I have a strenuous job, but it was fine! Dr. Carreon and the staff were great! I was a little worried about being awake during the procedure, but I actually slept through it all. If you are thinking about getting lipo, I say do it!"- L.A. / Facebook / Jan 01, 2022

"Wow what a amazing staff. I had lipo on my upper and lower abdomen, lipo on my waist and bra roll. I was a little scared but the staff was very helpful and made me feel comfortable. I wanted the hour glass shape and that's exactly what I got. I started off in a large bodysuit and now I'm in extra small in six weeks. Dr. Carreon got about 2200 liters out of me. I do exercise. I'm on the treadmill five days a week and I run a mile or more. I would recommend Dr Carreon to anyone."- S.T. / Google / Dec 23, 2021
"Christina with LCS Medical Spa was not only extremely professional but a sincere pleasure to be around. She actually took time to evaluate my needs and recommended the appropriate treatment rather than the far more expensive treatment I was seeking consultation for. I appreciated the honesty, integrity and amazing experience!"- M.W. / Google / Nov 05, 2021

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.
