I just had the Ultherapy today and it was so painful. I had to stop numerous times,I squirmed terribly and I actually cried due to the pain.
10/10 for pain especially the lower neck, jawline and above the eyebrow (felt like an electric shock to my brain)
I did not have any topical or injectable anesthetic nor did I take a valium and percocet - I really wish that I would have had something. I actually felt bad for the doctor.
I didn't think I had a low tolerance for pain but it was a tough hour and a half long procedure.
I'm looking forward to the results as everything I read seemed positive. The pain subside immediately after the procedure but my skin is a little red and tight.
I'm 46 and have very good skin (I do use retin a, do at home peels and at home microdermabrasions) and but did the Ultherapy as a preventative measure and too have a more youthful apprearance.
I will update my post in 1 month with the results.

Most of the swelling is gone. I saw a friend last night and she said she still saw a little bit of swelling but has noticed an improvement on my appearance. A colleague a couple of days ago said she noticed a positive difference also.
I still have an unusual tingling at my hairline above my right eye when I touch it. Hope it subsides soon. My skull is a slightly sensitive and tender.
I still have slight tightening feeling in my neck and jawline.
I have been very vigilant about lots of water, juicing, bromelain, aleve and icing(once a day), good sleep and very minimal alcohol.
I'm still very positive about eventually noticing a more youthful appearance - I'm seeing a little positive difference already.
Will post update again in 2-3 weeks.
Btw, I am 46 years old and felt this was a much more viable alternative than plastic surgery.

I have noticed an improvement especially above the eyes. The overall improvement is subtle but definitely noticeable.
I can still feel a little of the tightening as well but certaining not as much.since the procudeure.
Again, still drinking lots of water, no sun, very minimal alcohol, facials and juicing (cucumbers especially) and just overall trying to step up to a healthier regimine so that I can maximize the benefits of the Ultherapy.
My friends can tell the difference and I can as well in pictures.
I would still recommend Ultherapy as an viable alternative to plastic surgery or a first step before not just from a price perspective but also a perspective that there no cutting or incisions.
