If your skin is not as firm as it used to be, we can help improve its laxity with ultherapy, a nonsurgical intervention for loose facial, neck, chin, and décolletage skin. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), ultherapy's ultrasound energy can change the elasticity of your skin with a 30 – 90-minute session. After your appointment when your skin begins to heal itself, your body goes into a natural collagen production mode to repair the skin. Plastic surgeon Dr. Edward Lee is proud to offer ultherapy to men and women in Houston, TX. This procedure can be used in combination with other skin rejuvenation treatments, such as a laser skin resurfacing treatment or an injectable to leave the skin looking softer and younger.
Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved, noninvasive treatment for lifting the skin on the neck, chin, and brow. Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound to stimulate collagen deep within the skin without downtime. The result? Tighter, better-fitting skin, even on the neck! Natural. Noninvasive. No downtime. Call Nuveau Plastic Surgery to learn more!
Men and women can both benefit from ultherapy treatments. If you have noticed your facial skin becoming lax with mild to moderate facial wrinkles (around the mouth, eyes, and brow), 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.
"Dr. Lee is very personable! He is always very thoughtful and kind. If you are looking to get a procedure done, he will be able to kindly guide you through the process. Very seldom do you meet a doctor who is as considerate and relational as Dr. Lee!"- J.B. / Facebook / Mar 12, 2017
"Dr. Lee performed successful trigger thumb surgeries (right & left) for my daughter (7 yo). I was very nervous about my dtr needing surgery & kept delaying it until I found him. I sought 2nd opinions, but after meeting Dr. Lee in consultation, I knew he was the right surgeon. He explained every detail calmly & answered all my questions. He is knowledgeable & highly skilled. My dtr had no complications or infections; she recovered quickly. Today, she has perfectly working thumbs, hardly any scar!"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Apr 17, 2018
"I went today for my first facial with Teta. A friend had referred me so I decided to see what it was all about. When I arrived I was greeted immediately by 3 friendly faces. They welcomed me in and offered me a beverage. So far so good! First class service! Shortly after I began my facial not knowing really what to expect. Teta was very knowledgeable and made me feel very comfortable. I left feeling rejuvenated and fresh faced! This was a great experience and I have already booked my next appointment! I feel good about my skin :) Thank you Teta and Nuveau for a first class experience from start to finish! I would definitely recommend!"- B.S. / Yelp / Apr 04, 2018
"Ok I don't even know where to start so I'll start with how caring and professional Dr Lee was from the first moment I met him, his office was amazingly clean and smelled so good and not to mention a beautiful office, his staff Eva, and I apologize for forgetting the other young ladies name but they were absolute sweethearts just being nice sometimes can go further than you could ever imagine, now getting back to Dr Lee, I was terrified about having my procedure, however I made my decision based on his education, reviews, and mostly his smile it was one of the most genuine smiles I'd seen unlike many doctors today they make you feel like NEXT I've got another right after this but Dr Lee actually wanted to take his time and Perfect his work he expressed it and definitely showed it, after I got home and finally removed the wrapping after 2 days(nervously) but as I kept unwrapping I was confused looking for scars I just knew I'd have racetracks all over that area and I cried real tears because I didn't find one ugly or nasty scar that man is amazing my life will never be the same I can't wait to go shopping and show off a little lol I'm gonna conclude here because there's so much more I could say but Dr Lee if you ever read this review I just wanna say God truly blessed you with an amazing gift and heart and with the utmost respect you are beautiful on the outside, it was one of my first thoughts but my last thought was how beautiful you are on the inside....(I have to get this out) PLEASE go and help those poor celebrities in Hollywood they really could use your services"- A.C. / Yelp / Feb 14, 2018

Plan Your Procedure
- Procedure Recovery Location
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 the ultrasound energy will glide over your skin. Depending on the number of areas you are having treated, your sessions may last 30 – 90 minutes. It is very common for your skin to appear pink and slightly swollen. You can use ice packs and take ibuprofen to decrease any pain and inflammation. You may apply makeup after the appointment and go about 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 your ultherapy session. With the boost in collagen, the skin will tighten over time. You may see some fluctuations in your facial appearance, but keep in mind that your results may take up to six months to appear.
Age Gracefully with Ultherapy
Treat yourself to ultherapy sessions at our office so that the skin on your chest, face, chin, and neck can look fabulously toned without surgery. Our ultrasound technique, which is FDA-approved, will tighten your skin with no downtime (as you would have with surgery). We can discuss this technique with you in a private consultation at our office. Call and schedule your appointment today with Nuveau Plastic Surgery.
