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

"I had such a wonderful experience at Nouveau Plastic Surgery and Med Spa!! The staff is beyond spectacular. From the hands on (and handsome ladies/ gentlemen) owners Randy Rakes and Dr. Edward Lee to the nurse, injectors and Esthetician's (Alonah rocks!!).... Everyone is very informative, well trained, kind, knowledgeable, and on point. I've never felt in more capable and experienced hands. They have all the newest and greatest technology to aid in skin rejuvenation. And if you need a little help beyond that (which I did), Dr. Lee is one of the absolute best plastic surgeons in town. He is meticulous in his art. I would trust him with any procedure I decide to have done in the future and I feel completely confident in recommending him to any of my friends, family, or acquaintances. If you're looking for a wonderful med spa, Nouveau Plastic Surgery and Medspa is hands-down one of the best I've ever been to. Trust me! You'll love it there! It's amazing!!"- P.G. / Yelp / Aug 01, 2018
"Marty does brilliant work with injectables. She makes a plan, takes her time. She is very experienced and knowledgeable. I was comfortable with her and very impressed with the results. I had natural, but noticeable changes and Marty made suggestions no one else had. :)"- C.G. / Yelp / May 03, 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.
