First of all, this procedure HURTS. I had nerve blocks and it still hurt. Next time I do this, I'm opting for demerol or stronger meds. It was absolutely brutal.
I had this done because my skin was starting to be just slightly less taut as before. I've worn sunscreen daily since I was 25 and have been rigorous about skincare, but hey, aging happens! My doctor felt I would respond well to the treatment.
Afterwards, my skin was red for about an hour, and I had one slight bruise where one of the nerve blocks went in. My doctor said my face could be sore for a few weeks but I had it done yesterday and it's not sore at all today. I saw a difference immediately. My skin looked firmer and my neck looked smoother. I never had concerns about my neck, so I wasn't expecting a change, and was pleasantly surprised.

It's been about a week and a half since I had the ulthera treatment. My face initially did not hurt (aside from the pain of the treatment itself), but a couple of days later I did feel some soreness in my cheeks. I know I shouldn't see any difference yet, but I think that my skin looks a bit tighter and refreshed. I will update again after a month.

It's now been three months since I had the procedure, and suddenly people are asking me what's different, thinking I got my hair cut, or asking if my hair is longer, or if I'm wearing different lip gloss. I tell them that I'm getting more sleep. What I like about Ulthera is the gradual change. Since I had minimal sagging or lines beforehand, the change isn't something that is radical or would necessarily show up in a photo (although I can definitely see the difference in the photos my doctor took before and after), but there's no doubt that Ulthera has given me a boost in brightness, freshness, and youthfulness. So I am happy :)
I'm very happy I did Ulthera. It's been over six...

I definitely plan to do this again, when I need it! (and I highly recommend my doctor, Dr. Persky!)
Dr. Persky is a caring doctor, very professional, and he takes pride in his work. He explained everything in detail, was patient and even apologetic when I cringed in pain. He's a very warm person and I felt comfortable from the start. Everyone on the staff is extremely nice, and I feel that I'm in good hands there (literally).
