What Does Ultherapy Feel Like? Is it Similar to Blue Peel?

Does the Ultherapy pain feel anything like an Obagi Blue Peelburn sinsation? I will never do that again. They did hold a fan to my face for a cooling. Obagi blue peel felt like my face was pressed to a hot stove top 30 seconds at a time. So is Ultherapy more like a laser sting (okay) or a blue peel burn? I did take a 10 mg loratab prior and had a driver. I don't do burning sinsation well. Or better procedure to compare the type of pain not the pain level.

It sounds like you had a TCA peel which can be painful. The Ultherapy sensation is also uncomfortable (it feels more like deep heating less like 'burning'), but anti-anxiety medication and low dose pain medication takes the edge off nicely. There is a new software upgrade and the protocol is now considerably less painful than It was in the past. If you take medication plan for transportation home.
It was very painful for me even with light sedation and I'm not a baby. Felt like I was getting shock treatment. Had to make the tech stop and apply a cold cloth to my face. I don't know if she had the setting to high or what! What was suppose to be a one hour lunchtime lift -as they advertise it, turned out to be 4 hours! Should have walked out. Stupid. Don't do it!
