At 56 I was starting to see the effects of aging. I've never been much into makeup or cosmetics but wanted to do something and Ultherapy seemed like a great option- non-invasive, natural results and it uses your bodies own collagen to turn back the clock.
The procedure itself was a little uncomfortable but well worth it. It has been almost six months and I can see and feel a noticeable... more
I was 66 but I felt 45 - until I looked in the mirror. My face was aging faster than the rest of my body with droopy eyelids, saggy chin and neck. I was looking for help without surgical intervention and with a natural looking outcome. Dr. Gabel listened to my problems and recommended options to solve them. He came to the rescue with Ultherapy, which uses ultrasound energy to tighten and... more
I didn’t recognize myself in the mirror any more. The aging process really all started for me after I turned 35 years old, I really started to see my genetics kick into full drive. I thought with exercise, diet and good skincare it would keep my skin tight and avoid the saggy appearance. I was wrong! I am now 38 years old and after looking in the mirror and not liking what I saw, I decided... more
I wanted something for my neck and face but wasn't ready for surgery. After visiting several places offering Ultherapy, I decided to see Dr. Chan. His office was one of the first in Portland to offer Ultherapy and I felt he has had a lot of experience with it. The main thing is I wanted to know if I was a good candidate since there is so much hype out there. What convinced me to go with Dr... more
I am one of three friends who opted for Ultherapy. At 45, I'm the youngest of the three. I had the procedure yesterday and although the results weren't as "extreme" as I was hoping they would be; I could see immediate results, though subtle. The procedure took a little over an hour, and we (my friend and I went back-to-back) spent most of the day waiting to be seen, for the medication to kick... more
I am 44 years old and my skin is firm, I don't have a lot of wrinkles, but I started seeing a slight sagging in my jowl area which comes with age. I believe an ounce pf prevention is better than a pound of cure and after researching Ulthera and discovering that it stimulates deep collagen growth, I decided to give it a try. My expectations are to have at least a 20% firming (more definition)... more
I went to a new practitioner that I have never seen before. I went with the intention of getting some juvederm injections as my face is very thin and getting a bit saggy as I age. The Dr. listened to what I wanted and said that I would be a good candidate for ultherapy. A surgical facelift would be too much for me as the changes I desired weren't so dramatic as to require one, but at the same... more
I'm early 50s and had full face ultherapy (jaw/chin/eyes/brows) a month ago. At this point I'm optimistic. When I compare photos I think I see some changes, especially in the eye and brow area, although it is hard to tell as the before photos are much better quality (taken in the Dr's office) and the afters I took at home, in different lighting and much less clear.
I wanted to look less tired, and lift my face a bit without really looking like I did anything. That is exactly what Ultherapy did for me.
I was given Ultram, a non-narcotic to control discomfort and it was just right. I could feel it but the only part that I would say was hard to get through was the eyebrow area. I was guided through that short part with breathing and that made it not so... more
I am 66 and in pretty good shape. Discussed this procedure with dr., he felt the sagging under my chin and wrinkles along my cheeks would definitely benefit, as would the slight drooping of my eyelids.
Was a bit painful , even with meds. especially around the eyebrow/bony area. Like a dental drill hitting a nerve. The nurse told me it would be so I was prepared, but had to have her turn... more
I had the Ulthera done Friday, Jan. 7, 2011. It was my jowl line and neck due to age/turkey neck. The whole experience was uneventful. I did not think it hurt at all. Sure you felt a pricklig like when your arm/hand falls asleep - but that was that. Because it didn't hurt I am wondering if it will even work. I know they will reccommend a second treatment (more money), but we'll see how... more
I have the beggining signs of aging (loose skin) and saw this procedure on Dr Oz. I am scheduled for Friday to have the Ulthera and PDT together. After a lot of research I find that there is pain involved that concerns me since
I have a low pain tolerance. Does anyone have any advice to combat the pain? I was told that I would be given Percacet or Vicodin prior. Thank you for your feedback. more
This is actually my second treatment. My first treatment three months ago (brows) made me feel like I was going to crawl out of my skin with pain. Not kidding. It was soooo painful despite the threads I have read saying that it doesn't hurt at all.
Knowing what it felt like helped me discuss pain options with the clinic this time. I was prescribed Tramadol, which reduced the pain... more
Recently I had the new Ultherapy treatment at the Key Laser Institute here in Portland (Oregon). Full disclosure here, I'm a middle aged man and had heard about this procedure from a friend. After a free initial consultation, I decided to have the treatment.
With all of my questions answered to my satisfaction, I went ahead with the Ultherapy. I was told there would be some "pain... more
For skin laxity and tone. My Co2 and Ultherapy treatments returned remarkable results. I found that my skin texture immediately improved and continued to smooth and look more youthful over the next several months. There was also a significant tightening effect, particularly around the eyes. more
