The Truth About Ultherapy

June 22nd, 2019 by Dr. Michael Glass

It’s always a great time to get your skin back in shape and learn some facts about Ultherapy


Those who have taken advantage of Ultherapy know the satisfaction that it brings – with smoother skin, less sagging around problem areas, and increased confidence – our clients are ecstatic about this treatment! So, with all the chatter lately regarding this particular treatment, we at Esteem think it is very important to provide you with enough information so that you can tell fact from fiction.

Separating Fact from Fiction

UItherapy is FDA cleared


Ultherapy was cleared by the FDA in 2009 for non-surgical eyelift. Since then, it has also been cleared for skin on the face, neck, and lower neckline. Millions of people since then have taken advantage of this treatment to achieve excellent results and become the best person they can be.

Ultherapy is an invasive procedure with significant downtime


Here at Esteem Medical Spa, we know that WE operate on YOUR time.

That is why we provide a treatment that reduces the time spent in our office and increases your time for enjoying your body and your life. Ultherapy takes 2-21/2  hours, and after you complete your session, you will be back in the driver’s seat ready to tackle the rest of your day!

As many as 90% of our patients have received extra benefits from their Ultherapy treatment.  People that suffer from excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, have found significant beneficial changes in how much they sweat after receiving Ultherapy.  Check out more about interesting facts and details on Ultherapy at our website.

You need to do several Ultherapy sessions each year to keep up with the treatment


Ultherapy is a treatment that takes place in just a couple of hours and the effects can last from 2 to 5 years. The targeted ultrasound technology stimulates the collagen that you already have. It forces contraction and denaturation of the collagen fiber which promotes a healing response in the body. This natural healing response causes a structural lifting and tightening of the skin. The vast majority of patients need only 1 treatment to get desired results and will start to see peak results within 3 to 6 months.

The Ultherapy treatment is essentially pain free


Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure and happens in 3 phases: anesthesia, marking, and treatment. Here at Esteem, we utilize a proprietary anesthetic routine which is comfortable in application and allows the treatment to be pain free. Dr. Glass

After the application area has been anesthetized, one of our trained technicians will map out the area for the ultrasonic procedure to take place and then complete the treatment. After treatment is complete, there is little to no down time. Most patients show signs of mild swelling and reddening in the area of treatment. This is normal and will not inhibit the rest of your day.
