I'm 40 years old and have been treating my face w Botox/dysport and fillers for over 10 years. I'm healthy not overweight, but was concerned with depressions along the orbital, nasolabial, hood of the eye, and cheek area. Today after one treatment my skin is firmer, and the brow/hood area has already lifted. My Dr. Said usually younger skin responds right away. If 40 is young than yippee!!
Now to the part you all are most concerned of: PAIN. First of all remember no procedure ever has to be painful if you use a doctor that believes in pain control. I asked for everything. Percocet an hour before, lidocaine in the brow area, and numbing cream. I'm pretty good with pain, but since this was my first treatment I wanted all bases covered! Today I learned the cheek area without lidocaine getting to the area does hurt a bit. What I asked was to put ice on first, and then treat. Let me tell you, that's the key!!!! Ice then treat that area!!! Piece of cake and zero pain. Highly recommend asking for it. My right cheek area without ice was difficult. I was patient number 14 for the surgeon I went too. Highly recommend a doctor over a tech. Ulthera can deliver different amounts of energy to places, and every face is different. It takes skill to do this treatment.
Since I have only one day, I can tell you there is zero pain, my face feels tighter, and my brow has lifted already. The only thing is: if you have a retainer, TAKE IT OUT! Definitely conducts a dose of extra energy. If you have braces, I would wait til they are off. The doctor I went to is like an artist with a palate. She spent a ton of time with me and I absolutely love her. She is 61 uses Ulthera and looks 40!! It's AMAZINg!! I will keep everyone posted through the 90 days!! I say go for it!
I did have a few point looking burns but nothing...
