Enjoy a Younger-Looking You with Ultherapy


Do you feel like everything is starting to fall; your brow, your face, your neck, belly, thighs, knees and butt?  Then pick them back up with Ultherapy, a patented, FDA cleared procedure designed to do just that! Keep reading to learn what Ultherapy is, how it works, and who makes a good candidate.

What Is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy  uses a process called focused ultrasound to create structural integrity in body areas which have fallen do to normal aging and gravity.

Ultherapy works deep, below the skin and subcutaneous fat, to lift and tighten problem areas without surgery.

What Issues Can Be Treated with Ultherapy?

Ultherapy can be used to treat a number of issues. For instance, at Esteem Medical Spa we’ve successfully used Ultherapy to treat patients with:

  1. Loose, sagging skin above the knees, as well as on the abdomen, butt neck, face, and inner thighs
  2. Drooping eyebrows
  3. Jowls
  4. Loose and falling neck
  5. Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating

What Can I Expect During Ultherapy?

Your Ultherapy treatment consists of 3 parts; anesthesia, marking, and treatment.  At Esteem we utilize a proprietary anesthetic routine which is comfortable in application and renders the treatment essentially pain free.  No sedation or sedative drugs are used so you can drive home after your procedure. Once you are anesthetized the technician will map out the area for treatment and then proceed to treat.

The entire Ultherapy treatment process will last 2-2 ½ hours.

Afterward, you’ll experience no downtime, although you’ll probably have some mild swelling and temporary skin redness. The vast majority of patients only need one Ultherapy treatment to attain their desired results.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Ultherapy and How Long Will They Last?

Ultherapy-before-and-afterUltherapy offers dramatic results. While the results aren’t as dramatic as those you might expect from surgery, they’re dramatic enough that most patients are thrilled with their new appearance. Furthermore, our patients love knowing they can look significantly younger with just one in-office visit, and no surgery.

After having the Ultherapy procedure done, patients start to see results within about 3 months. By the 6-month mark, they’ll experience maximum results. Those results can last between 2-5 years.

Who Makes a Good Ultherapy Candidate?

Good candidates for Ultherapy are typically start in their 30s and older when experiencing mild to moderate structural sagging and looseness.

The best way to determine whether you’re a good candidate for Ultherapy is to schedule a complimentary consultation.
