Does Ulthera Realy Works? - Dubai, AE

I'm 45 year old from Saudi Arabia has skin sagging...

I'm 45 year old from Saudi Arabia has skin sagging especially around the mouth along with slight upper eye skin hooding I wanted some face lift without surgery . So I decided to do ulthera , after extensive search and a lot of reading . since it is not available in SA ,I found one clinic in Dubai that doing the procedure, so I traveled there to have it ,I met the technician who is doing it and she used ice pages to num my face, it was not painful except when it touches nerve area it feels like toothache it took almost 45 minutes immediately after the procedure I have some swelling but no bruises
it almost 3 months since I did it but unfortunately no change in my face at all I spent 2,600 dollars beside the air tickets and hotel accommodation without any result

What gets me upset was that I saw this on more t.v. shows like Dr. Oz and numerous morning shows - all saying how it doesn't hurt and that they got wonderful results! They are liars and cheats too. I wonder how much commission they get when they endorse these. I don't believe anything anymore from Dr. Oz cause everyday he is selling something new and if you wanted to do everything he says you would have to make a lot of money. Thanks Fatma - people please learn from this - I think this machine is one big ripoff - I spent almost $1000.00 on that NLS Clinic for about 15 mins. And as Fatma said I was prob lucky that I didnt do the whole face. Good luck - you'll need it if you decide to do Ultherapy.

I don't know if you are writing about NLS Clinic but I am. I have never seen such an unprofessional as this "Dr" Julia. I had come there expecting before pictures and more professional advice. Instead when I told this woman that my cheeks looked too fat when I smile her reply was - DON"T SMILE or try not too!!! The cost for a tiny area was outrageous, and she kept asking can you see the difference???? The cost was 3 times what I expected. I wished I'd walked out without paying - because I was paying for nothing!! DO NOT GO THERE PLEASE!!

Megan I do hope your site really investigates Ultherapy because it's incredibly irresponsible of beauty sites like yours not to report when very expensive treatments do not work and will cost consumers lots of money! ULTHERAPY DOES NOT WORK!!!!

Marla10021, that is one of the great things about RealSelf. It's not RealSelf as a company who gets to decide if the treatment is worth it, but that power is put into the hands of the community members by allowing them to vote if it was worth it or not in their review.

Duly noted Megan. Appreciate your feedback. I just want other women to save their money! I even found an email to write to Ulthera, the company that is promoting this waste of $ service. It's not worth it and other women be forewarned!

Fatma, I am on a mission to tell women not to do this procedure! IT DOES NOT WORK! I've had two procedures b/c the doctor agreed to do it over and still no change. My area was my neck and no change. NONE! DON'T DO THIS PROCEDURE. IT'S A RIPOFF!!!! I hope the media gets wind of this b/c they are misleading consumers.

Thank you so much for sharing your story with us. I'm sorry to hear you haven't seen any changes from your treatment. Since the clinic you went to was such a long distance from where you live, I'm assuming you will not be able to go back to the clinic to show them the lack of results during a followup visit. Is that correct?

I can definitely understand why you would feel that way. What do you think you will do at this point?

I'm glad you are taking your time to research out the right injector. That is very wise of you. We have a community dedicated to Sculptra, so you can always check that out and read some of the people's stories in there if you haven't already.
