Dr. Desai offers Ultherapy at BTLA Med Spa serving patients in The Woodlands, Spring, Shenandoah, Conroe, Houston and surrounding areas. Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure that can lift skin on the neck, under the chin and above the eyebrow. Ultherapy can also improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
Ultherapy works by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the same foundational layer typically addressed by surgeons during cosmetic surgery without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. This energy initiates the body's natural response to stimulate the growth of fresh, new collagen and strengthen weak collagen.
While Ultherapy does not duplicate the results of a facelift, it's an exciting alternative for those who are not ready for surgery - and for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.

frequently asked questions
What is unique about Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive aesthetic treatment:
- FDA-cleared to lift skin tissue
- FDA-cleared specifically to treat the décolletage
- FDA-cleared to use ultrasound imaging to visualize tissue while treating
How long does a treatment take?
The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedures takes 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
Will I need to take time off?
After an Ultherapy procedure, you can resume your normal activities immediately without having to follow any special post-treatment measures.
When will I see results? How long will they last?
You may see some initial effect, but the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months, as tired collagen is replaced by the growth of new collagen. As skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the natural aging process. For many patients, it's comforting to know that Ultherapy is scientifically proven to increase collagen in their skin.
What does the treatment feel like?
As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. Dr. Desai will take measures to make the experience as pleasant as possible, and most patients leave comfortable and excited about the results to come.
Is Ultherapy Safe?
The FDA-cleared Ultherapy procedure has been used safely in over 620,000 treatments worldwide. Ultrasound energy has been used safely in the medical field for more than 50 years. In addition, Dr. Desai receives extensive procedural training and tools, so you can feel confident in choosing Ultherapy.
