So Much More Painful Than I Imagined - Houston, TX

I read all these reviews and asked a lot of...

I read all these reviews and asked a lot of questions but even with taking some pain medications before the procedure I was in a lot of pain. I also ended up with bruising, swelling and some red lines on my neck .I could never have gone back to work. I wanted to improve my jawline which was getting a little jowly and so far I am not seeing too much difference but since I was told it might take 30-60 days I will wait and see. I am not sure I would recommend this procedure to anyone until I see some results because of the pain and bruising.

It has now been over 6 weeks since my Ultherapy. Still have some annoying side effects. Half od my scalp is still numb and the area under my chin is still sensitive to touch. I will be contacting the office this week since I am now starting to be concerned. After reading most of these comments, it is obvious that there are some really good practitioners out there that take the time to discuss everything with their patients and also make extra efforts to minimize or eliminate the kind of side effect that I (and others) have experienced. I wish I had gone to one of those...mine was more like, " you're going to be so happy, it might be a little uncomfortable and give me the money". Live and learn. As I mentioned before I should have done a lot more research and paid a lot less money..if I even went ahead with the procedure. So far I see no improvement in any area of my face or neck..Very unhappy .

Need to add...

My doctor did make this right for me...although I never got a clear explanation as to why my effects were so severe she did give me a credit and I have worked with her on some other ways to improve my appearance. Renee has been very kind to me and I wanted to make sure that I acknowledged her actions. Having said that...I would still NEVER recommend this procedure to anyone.

She was very nice but I was told the procedure would take a couple of hours and it took 3. When I left all the office staff had left and I got no aftercare information or guidance. I was also charged more than the procedure was advertised for on their website. I made the appt by phone and got the pricing from the office but afterwords when I went to find out about some of the side effects I was having I noticed that the price was $500 less than what I paid. I have emailed and called the office with no response.
