Men everywhere are looking for non-invasive ways to lift sagging skin on the chin, neck, or face, and Ultherapy® is a great way to do it. This procedure has been approved by the FDA to lift the eyebrows and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It delivers ultrasound energy to the patient’s skin without an incision, encouraging the body to make more of its own natural collagen.
Are Men are Saying Goodbye to Botox®?
No, but they have discovered something new! Though Botox is still a highly-effective facial rejuvenation therapy treatment, Dr. Bradford Patt of Houston Center for Facial Plastic Surgery is noticing a new trend with male patients. Men are beginning to turn to ultherapy for longer-lasting results. Below are a few reasons for Dads to consider this clinical treatment:
- It’s approved by the FDA
- It’s done in a single session
- It’s completely non-invasive
- No downtime
- It provides gradual, natural-looking results
What Can Men Expect During the Treatment?
During the procedure, special gel and a treatment applicator will be applied to the patient’s skin. With the included ultrasound technology, the technician will see deep enough into the skin to determine the best place to focus the energy. The ultrasound energy is then delivered under the skin’s surface. Some patients may feel a small amount of energy as it’s deposited to the prescribed depth.
This feeling is only temporary, and confirms that collagen synthesis has begun. Treatment length depends on the area being treated, and the patient’s treatment plan. While neck and face treatments may take anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes, smaller areas may only take about 30 minutes.
What Can They Expect After the Procedure?
One of the biggest benefits of an ultherapy skin lifting treatment is that there’s no recovery time. After treatment, patients can resume their normal schedules and routines. While some may experience redness, swelling, tingling, or tenderness around the treated areas, these symptoms are mild and should only last a few hours.
Other effects may include bruising and numbness, yet these are extremely rare and less common. As with other cosmetic treatments, other side effects are possible but rare. For Houston men who are interested in this therapy treatment, Dr. Patt and his experienced staff will review these and other potential problems during a consultation and before treatment begins.
