Ulthera for Hyperhidrosis

Good morning Cheryl,

I hope you are well. I just wanted to give you an update. First, am I the first patient to undergo Ulthera for hyperhidrosis at your clinic? If I am, I'm glad to be the first since I have had good results thus far. It has now been a little over a week since the procedure on my right axilla and I am already noticing about a 40-50% difference. 30 days from my first procedure, would it be possible to do another session with you? Would the cost be the same? I was reviewing comments from the clinical study of Dr. Mark Nestor in Florida and read that they did two passes, one penetrating at 3mm and the other at 4.5mm so I also wanted to ask if trying it at 4.5mm this time might help with the remaining trouble spots.

Overall, I really want to thank both Dr. Reichel and you, Cheryl. For people who have never had this condition, it may be difficult to comprehend, but this has truly been life altering. I can now worry less about having to constantly change my clothes at work and reapply deodorant throughout my day, which is truly priceless. I am very confident that after a second treatment I will no longer have this condition. Thanks again for working with me to make this happen. I am leaving for my business trip to Las Vegas this Sunday and I read that the weather will be in the 90's so I am VERY HAPPY that I have noticed an improvement since last week. Now I only have to focus on my meetings and presentations and not the extra clothes I would have had to bring before having the surgery and the treatment :)

Let me know your thoughts about a second treatment. I really look forward to it.

What is Ulthera?

Hi Laser Ladies,

I have a couple questions. I have heard about Ulthera, but what is it? And how long will it take for me to see results?

Thank you



Hi A,

Thank you for your questions. Ultherapy is a non-surgical face and neck treatment that uses ultrasound to actually lift and tone loose or sagging skin without any downtime. We use ultrasound imaging, which allows us to actually see the layers of tissue we target during treatment and ensure the energy is deposited precisely to where it will be most effective. Your treatment will be tailor made for you based on your skin characteristics and your treatment goals.

Patients may enjoy some initial effect but the ultimate lifting and toning will take place over 3 to 4 months, as tired collagen is replaced with new, more elastic collagen. As this collagen-building process continues, further improvements can appear up to 6 months following a procedure.

Please call 206.859.5777 or email to schedule your free consultation and we can tailor a treatment plan just for you.
