I am a 49 year old man who is holding up pretty well. Very active, work out, eat right, bla, bla, bla. But my face was starting to slide and sag a bit. Ulthera appeared to be just the all in one solution I could handle. I tried fillers and botox. Having to return every few months for more painful shots was not working for me. (Let me mention that I bruised terribly from restylane) I was a bit nervous about what people here wrote about pain but was impressed with the before/after pictures. The concept of gradual lifting and tightening rather than one big plump or pull appeals to me. I had the procedure done 4 days ago.
The pain was so minimal I can't even call it pain. My tattoos were way more painful. The nurse gave me 20 mg of Valium and 10mg of Vicodin and a Motrin before the Ulthera. Getting snapped with a rubber band is way worse than anything I felt. The next morning I went to the gym and worked out as normal. Face washing and shaving were no trouble. I felt and still feel a bit sore on my forehead and under my chin. I'm not expecting to see changes for at least a month. I can already see that the loose skin on my jowls and along my jawline is tighter. There is a return of definition that has been gone for several years. A friend at work commented that I look very rested and awake. I'm detecting that my eyes are lifting a bit. So far the experience is positive and I'm seeing change. I will share before and after pics in the future
Quick consultation appointment, Very nice staff, nice facility and office. Easy procedure appointment, follow up call the next morning. Can't complain about a single thing.
