Ultherapy Hurts! - Los Angeles

- 4 Dec 2010
I heard about Ultherapy on Dr. Oz. I wanted to tighten my facial skin and he said that it was a non-evasive, no down time procedure. I found it to be the most painful procedure I've ever had. I had a pain shot and vicodin, nevertheless during the procedure it felt as though I was being shot with a tazer gun. After the procedure I had welts, scratches and swelling on my face (actually I still do). The skin under my chin and in other areas on my face have been numb for over a week.
If the pain equals results, I'm hopeful that the results will be fantastic. It's been a week and a half and I can't really tell yet.
The doctor was very understanding about the pain. He stopped numerous times to let me calm down from the pain. He even gave me an additional pain pill in an effort to make the experience less torturous. The jury is still out about whether the procedure worked for me. I'm not sure whether I could endure Ultherapy treatment again.
