I spent notable money (in the many thousands) on two treatments to lift my brow and tighten skin around my eyes. Total waste of money. I saw absolutely zero results after the first treatment (at month three, post treatment), but threw down another few thousand in hopes a second treatment would work... The doc said it might work and I did NOT want surgery. So I gave it a shot. ARGH!! ... more
On February 13th I had a full face and neck ultherapy treatment (to collarbone). The procedure lated 90 minutes and I had 956 lines. In addition to treating the neck, cheeks, and side of forehead, the nurse/technician treated the crows feet by my eyes, under my eyes (9 lines) and above and below the sides of my lips. She used two "heads" on the ultherapy wand. The deepest one on my neck and... more
As I had my arms done in addition to my face and neck, I was advised to have a general anesthetic. I am 7 weeks out and can already see the difference in my arms every day and tightening on my neck. I am very pleased!! I've been wearing long sleeves for the last year to keep my arms covered and in the last week, I have finally debuted my arms for the first time. That says it all, as far as I'm... more
I had the procedure done on 11 Jun 2012, full face and neck, by a cosmetic surgeon (Dr. Walker). I was not prepared for the extreme pain during the procedure - and when I say extreme I mean I was in HORRENDOUS PAIN! The doctor gave me a few injections of licodaine and over the counter tylenol and ibruprofen tablets and while the medications did numb the areas of my face and neck for a while... more
I went into my dermatologist for Perlane injections, and she mentioned that Ulthera would be a beneficial, non-invasive complement to fillers. On a whim I decided to go ahead and do it. While the doctor and her assistant explained that many people take pain meds prior to the procedure, I am not a fan of narcotics, and I have a relatively high pain threshold, so I figured I could go without.... more
Sagging jowls and neck.
I never considered cosmetic procedures but my wife encouraged me to condsider Ultherapy to tighten sagging jowls and "wattle" under chin. Dr. Walker made the ultrasound based Ultherapy procedure as easy as pie. She did it very quickly, very discreetly, and answered all questions and concerns thoroughly before, during and after the procedure... more
Sagging neck and chin!This technique is attractive to me simply because it is non surgical. The common and unpleasant side of surgery that can include scarring, painful healing and an unnatural result, was not something I wanted to consider. Ultherapy is a very appealing alternative. Other than a bit of sensitivity post Ultherapy there is no healing process to speak of. And I have seen the... more
I am late 40s and had Ultherapy done 5 months ago for loss of volume resulting in sagging skin mostly around my lower face and under my chin. There is no difference between my before and after. The procedure was painful, but less painful than injections; the nurse administered a small dose of demerol prior. more
