Not Worth the Money....save It for a Face Lift - Peoria, IL

I had Ulthera 2 months ago and it is definately not worth it.A lot of money for a 2 mm brow change.

They thought I was a great candidate for it since I have "great skin", but I saw little if any improvement. Still have too much laxity in cheek area. Wished I would have saved the money for a face lift.And the plastic surgeon didn't perform it. It was his office staff.....an esthetician who had been "trained" by the company that sells the machine!

He numbed the areas on my face but I walked out with a black eye and bruises at every injection point of pain blocker. Thank God for long hair and purple eyeshadow!

The doctor agreed the slight changes were not enough and has offerred to redo the treatment. The frequency (depth) of the Ulthera wand can be adjusted so that more collagen is stimulated.The doctor and the office have been very accomodating. The next treatment is in early July. Hopefully I will get more visible results.

One month update: DEFINITELY worth it! One month ago, they repeated the Ulthera and I saw my photos today. Tremendous change already at 1 month! The procedure took 5 years off my face! The procedure is not painless but the doctor and his staff do their best to numb the majority of your face. There was more swelling this time, but that is because they set the frequency to go deeper, thus stimulating more collagen = better results.Less brusing this time with the use of the Dermasculpt needles.
I recommend this procedure and this doctor(and his staff)to anyone that wants to take 5+ years off their face.
