I had Ultherapy 11 days ago! I am 51 years old. My motivation for Ultherapy was that I wanted to see more tone in my jawline and around my eyes (to address crows feet and smile lines) without any downtime. Also, I am not to the point where I need surgery (eye's or neck) and wanted a "pick me up". I felt this might give me what I was looking for and it did.
The downside is the pain but it was bearable. It seamed to be only in specific areas where it really hurt (my hairline at my brow and at my temples and more on the left side than the right side.) I had the added help of Lortab (taken in low dose).
I had minimal swelling, some tenderness (and no redness no welts and no bruises).
I had immediate improvement in the tone around my eyes and cheeks. Although slight, the improvement in my skin and tone is already evident at 11 days.
the staff at my doctor's office informed me of what to expect in great detail so I was very well prepared. I prepaid a year in advance so my price was a bit lower than what is being charged now (I believe).
