Age Gracefully with Ultherapy
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 have done my procedure 12/20; I wanted to wait before I submit the review. I love my results; Dr, Carreon did a great job with me, she is a smart lady, the minute I saw her I felt comfortable. The things I mostly like is that your health and safety are number one for them, they are very detailed and organized in a good way. I loved the staff everyone did great. I didn’t loose weight at all but I have flatter tummy and thiner waist; liposuction is not to loose wait y’all, it’s to countor your body. No pain during procedure I was relaxing but I could feel the cold wipes for the disinfectant, it was really cold, I loved the two warm pillows they gave me during procedure. After procedure you’ll experience some discomfort but it wasn’t bad at all. I was worried about pain. I’m much happier with my body, thank you Dr. Carreon, you deserve more that 5 starts ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️."- Z.P. / Google / Feb 27, 2020
"I had smart lipo just about 2 weeks ago. I feel amazing and my confidence is thru the roof already. I know this will not be my final results so I'm looking forward to them...as far as Dr.carreon she was absolutely amazing and straight forward which I appreciate very much. I cannot believe how amazing she has my body looking like. Her staff starting with Priscilla and then Gabby and Sam have been nothing but the best with so much respect from them...I felt so comfortable the whole time and the procedure went so smooth. I didn't feel a thing. Best advice I can say is don't sleep the night before and you shouldn't have an issue falling to sleep for the procedure. I'm so in love with myself. Another important thing to maximize the results be sure to get the lymphatic massages they will speed up your results and recovery. I just want to give thanks and so much love to the staff of Dr.Carreon. i would do it all over again no questions asked."- S.A. / Google / Feb 23, 2020
"Smart lipo - I cannot believe my results - She is amazing! I got smart lipo in my lower/upper abs pubic sides and my bra roll. My results do far have been amazing it's do crazy how small my stomach is. I'm 10 days post op and went for my first lymphatic massage (wish I went sooner) as I was starting to get fibrosis in some areas. I highly recommend them as they will make you feel so much better.I should have went 24-48 hours after my surgery. The swelling is there especially in my pubic area at times it was really scary but completely normal. But so far so good I cannot believe my results. The doctors assistance are amazing as well and always available for any questions I have. There bedside manner is so nice and they walk you thru every step of the process. If I could do it again I would with the same doctor no questions asked."- A. / RealSelf / Feb 16, 2020
Ultherapy Procedure Technique
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 with Ultherapy®
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.
Ultherapy Ideal Candidates
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.
