It's only the first day and I do notice good results on my upper lip fine lines and the lines from my nose to mouth. Both my husband and daughters noticed it right away. I already have some lift under my eyes also. I had the lower face and neck done. I did not have any bruising, but under my chin is pretty sore and to me it looks swollen.
The bad part? It is really, really painful. I had the topical numbing cream and a painkiller that was only slightly stronger than Motrin. Definitely NOT enough. On a pain tolerance scale I am medium, and I literally screamed a few times. I was crying it hurt that bad. It was like tiny razor blades - a steely feeling that was horrible. I would not do it again without some really strong pain killer.
As for the results, I do see some already and I will update this as it goes forward.
One week and I DO see more results!! Under my chin...

It's been 5 months since I had the Ultherapy - and . . . I definitely notice a difference. I had a colleague even ask me if I'd lost weight (no, I have not). The lines from my nose to mouth are virtually gone. My cheekbones look higher and more sculpted, and even my chin, which was the least effected shows considerable improvement!! I would definitely recommend it IF you go to someone with adequate pain medication. I would not go back to the practitioner I used unless they really up the meds.
Since it is only the first day, I cannot say whether it was worth the money and the pain. Well, definitely not worth the pain - I would not do it again irrespective of results unless I had a much stronger pain killer.
