I love looking better…without looking like I had work done!
Ultherapy is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment. It uses ultrasound technology, developed by Ulthera to fight aging skin, restoring a more youthful quality without surgery. Dr. Daniel Leeman is proud to be among the first plastic surgeons in the greater Austin area to offer this breakthrough skin tightening treatment.
Ultherapy is a new type of nonsurgical procedure that uses medical ultrasound for cosmetic improvements of the skin. Ultherapy works deep below the surface without harming the surface layer of skin for firming, tightening, and lifting. Improvements include a sleeker, more defined jawline and tighter skin on the neck under the chin.
Sagging skin on the cheeks can be tightened and lifted, which in turn improves the folds from the nose to the mouth, folds from the mouth to the jaw, and drooping corners of the mouth. Tightening of skin on the forehead can reduce the sagging skin on the eyelids and create a more open, refreshed look. Overall improvements in skin texture and evenness of color, as well as strengthening and a firmer, natural collagen cushion can be achieved with Ultherapy treatment.
As with other ultrasound procedures, a smooth applicator placed upon your skin projects an image onto a screen. This applicator delivers low levels of focused heat at a custom depth deep in the skin layers to trigger natural regeneration, leaving the surface of your skin undisturbed. Your skin’s response to the energy is to stimulate the growth of new natural collagen. You will observe some immediate tightening and lifting that improves over time.
Ultherapy is the only skin rejuvenation procedure that employs ultrasound technology to treat the skin. The ability to utilize technologies to see below the skin and treat it with great precision helps to ensure both your safety and achieving a remarkable level of skin regeneration.
This will be determined by evaluating the condition of your skin, but we have achieved excellent clinical results after just one or two treatments. We will schedule a follow-up visit to take photographs and track your progress. Our goal is total satisfaction.
The system has been designed to treat the entire face and upper neck, or specific areas where you have concerns about aging skin. We can treat the lower face and neck, or just the forehead and temples, or both. A tailored treatments plan will be developed at your private consultation.
The regenerative process is initiated at the time of your treatment, with the full effect building gradually over two to three months. In the FDA clinical trial, nine out of ten patients had a visible, significant lift at the brow line. This resulted in a more open look to the eyes and a more youthful facial appearance. Patients also reported firmer, tighter, more supple skin in other areas of the face and neck. A smoother texture and more even skin tone are also possible benefits.
You can return to your normal activities right away, and there are no special measures you need to take. Your skin may appear a bit flushed immediately after the treatment, but any redness should disappear within a matter of hours. You may also feel mild tenderness under the treated areas, which is normal. This indicates that the healing process is underway and that your skin is in the process of generating new, fresh collagen for firmer, more youthful skin.
Platelets are cells in the blood that play an important role in clotting and also contain hundreds of growth factors – substances required for the stimulation of growth in living cells. Plasma (liquid part of the blood) with a high concentration of platelets helps promote hair growth when injected into the scalp.
Consistency is key for best results with PRP hair restoration therapy. When you follow the recommended protocol, first results are typically visible in two to three months. Results may include decreased hair loss, early regrowth, and increased hair length. Continued treatments every three to six months on a long-term basis may be recommended for optimal growth.
PRP hair restoration uses growth factors in your own blood to help stimulate hair growth. Benefits of this treatment include: Natural treatment, using your own blood, platelets, and growth factors. This is an affordable, cost-effective solution to thinning hair, with a high success rate for treatment. There are no medications or scarring. You may begin to see visible results within a few months.

When Dr. Leeman and his team introduce the platelet rich plasma to the skin, your own concentration of cells will work with your body to naturally promote a “structure and signals” process for new tissue and collagen growth. Platelet rich plasma can either be injected directly into the face or used to enhance the results of other treatments including fractional laser resurfacing therapy, facial fat grafting, Brazilian butt lifts, or natural breast augmentation.
The internal essence of the blood inside you contains life-giving, fundamental protein growth factors that are designed to restore and strengthen your body. Dr. Leeman uses platelet rich plasma treatments to harness a high concentration of your own biological nutrient-rich cells and unleashes them to naturally promote skin health. These nutrient-rich cells stimulate the regeneration of the underlying structural integrity of your skin.
After PRP treatment, patients often notice fine lines and wrinkles have softened and deeper wrinkled areas, such as nasolabial folds, look plumper and smoother. The main goal of the treatment is to stimulate fibroblasts and develop long-term collagen formations in the dermis. Your results will be gradual and vary from person to person based on health, age, and genetic make-up. Most patients enjoy quantifiable improvements in skin complexion, texture and tone within three weeks. Subtle improvements can progressively continue for up to 2 years.
Platelet rich plasma treatments are derived from your own biological make-up and do not contain synthetic products. Therefore, virtually any area of the body can be treated, including your face, neck, chest, hands, scars, and more.
In order to enjoy a maximum response to your treatment, it is important to eat right, drink plenty of water and incorporate the facial care recommended by Dr. Leeman.
The laser precisely creates thousands of microscopic injuries in your skin, which induce immediate skin tightening and stimulate new collagen growth. Patients are often amazed at how tight their skin feels immediately after the procedure. Fractional laser resurfacing is designed to improve the skin’s texture and tone and to smooth fine lines, deep wrinkles, and acne scars.
Unlike other laser resurfacing technologies, Fractional laser resurfacing leaves islands of healthy tissue surrounding the microscopic injuries. This enables your skin to heal more rapidly and minimizes damage.
After the procedure, your skin will be red, similar to a sunburn. The redness will linger for a few days. By day three or four, you will experience some peeling as fresh, supple, younger looking skin appears. In most cases, your skin will return to its normal appearance in about seven to ten days. After the laser procedure is completed, a cold compress will be applied. During the recovery period you will apply a hydrating lotion to keep your skin moist and promote healing. In most cases, you may resume applying makeup after about three days.
In most cases, fractional laser resurfacing can be performed on an entire face within 20 to 30 minutes. Smaller areas will take less time.
Excellent results can be achieved in a single session. However, if you have severe wrinkling or deep acne scars, you may benefit from a series of treatments spaced about one month apart. We will advise you on the results you can reasonably expect, and whether you may require several treatments to achieve the level of skin rejuvenation you envision.
Basic skincare, thorough cleansing and sun protection are key to ensuring your results last. Wear sunscreen and avoid direct sun exposure whenever possible. This is particularly important in the weeks following treatment.
The fractional laser skin resurfacing system used by Dr. Leeman is FDA approved to treat a range of skin concerns.
Comfort levels vary from person to person, but you do not need anesthesia to have this treatment. Our patients tell us that the sensation feels like a momentary prickling or heat beneath the skin. This is the ultrasound energy being delivered into the tissue, how Ultherapy lifts and tightens your facial skin for a more youthful, fresh look.
Your skin will continue to age as the years pass, so you may need to schedule an annual touch-up visit to maintain your results. The Northwestern University study followed patients up to 10 months, with skin quality improvement still visible.
A good candidate is someone with skin that has relaxed to the point of sagging and feeling less firm. A lowered brow line or loose skin on the eyelids, for instance, is often the first sign of maturing skin. We will evaluate if you are an appropriate candidate at the time of your consultation.
Ultherapy is FDA-approved and uses ultrasound energy, which has been used in medical imaging and therapeutics, such as sonograms, for over 50 years, and clinical studies have confirmed the safety of this latest application. As with any medical procedure, there are general safety considerations, which we will review with you before your treatment.
There is no safer way to rejuvenate your skin than ensuring your treatment is performed under the care of a double board-certified plastic surgeon with years of experience. Dr. Leeman is one of the rare surgeons who holds two credentials, both as a plastic and reconstructive surgeon and as an otolaryngology specialist for head and neck surgery. Never trust your skin – or your appearance – to any practitioner without professional board-certification, particularly for facial treatments.
