After reading on real self about all the painful ulthera treatments, it has me worried that my own treatment a month ago will not produce good results. I experienced very little pain. Just the odd twinge. I know its early days but I have yet to see any results. I had treatment to the upper face/eyes. I am a 36 year old woman with slightly sagging brows and cheeks.
I Experienced Very Little to No Pain During my Ulthera Treatment 30 Days Ago. Does This Mean That I Wont Get Good Results?

Ultherapy is not likely to be painful
"No pain, no gain" not necessarily true
Pain has physical, psychological and historical components, so different individuals experience and interpret pain variably. The conventional wisdom "no pain no gain" is not necessarily true. Given your age and minimal droopiness, you should expect improvement within 60-90 days. Good luck.

Ultherapy is not painful for every patient
I have had a few patients that have not had much pain with Ultherapy and they have a history of being quite stoic. Checking the skin temperature during treatment I saw that they had the same elevated responses as all my other patients and the dermal temperature is what is important in developing new collagen. The benefit of Ultherapy is usually seen four to six months after the procedure.
