I am also a dermatologist and have been providing Ultherapy treatments for the last two years. I concur with Dr.Samlaska's opinion. It appears to have been caused by an intense pulsed light crystal, not Ulthera.

I am a dermatologist and have been providing Ulthera treatments for over two years. The injury shown is inconsistent with Ultherapy treatment. The device produces a line of 10 to 20 very focal thermal-coagulation points deep in tissue that measure 0.5 mm wide and 1.8 mm in length. Any complication from the device should produce a line of dots, as shown on the demos available using the plastic test card the company provides. The injury shown in these photographs is more consistent with contact of the crystal directly with the skin in the intense pulse light devices (FotoFacial). This would produce an injury that is a perfect rectangle, such as shown. I question if any gel was used during the procedure. So sorry for the results, but I can't believe this was an Ulthera device.

Dr. D. Branson mentions the risk of burns here http://www.drbranson.com/images2/Ultherapy_pdf.pdf Obviously, burns are very rare but I am hearing that they are a possibility and are more "intense" than a welt. I understand welts are common and go away quickly, as mine did.
