Ulthera on Lower Face - Portland, OR

This is actually my second treatment. My first...

This is actually my second treatment. My first treatment three months ago (brows) made me feel like I was going to crawl out of my skin with pain. Not kidding. It was soooo painful despite the threads I have read saying that it doesn't hurt at all.

Knowing what it felt like helped me discuss pain options with the clinic this time. I was prescribed Tramadol, which reduced the pain significantly. The technician who administered the treatment was wonderful and kept checking in with me to make sure I was doing ok. It has been two days since the treatment and I have encountered no bruising, swelling, welting or any adverse reactions whatsoever. I appreciate that she has called to carefully follow up since then as well!

The clinic was offering a special 1/2 price promotional deal. I am still not sure what the outcome will be for me -- I have read that a certain percentage of people have no results -- but the special made me feel ok with trying it to see what happens.

who was your doctor? I have been looking at Dr. Key or the ORegon clinic

It's been a while since your procedure, are you pleased with the results? I have this scheduled next week and would love to hear from someone that is a few months post procedure.

HI Sera,

I'm not sure if the tingling is normal, you should check with other community members. I checked in our doctor Q&A and someone asked the question, How long does it take to see results, it might help you too. Keep us updated :)

It has now been over a week since my treatment. I notice no tightening difference whatsoever on my skin, although my overall appearance is brighter from the laser treatment -- much like the glow after a microderm. I do hope there will be tightening eventually, but I am happy I didn't pay full price in this experiment.

The one thing I find curious is a subtle tingly feeling from time to time on the area I had treated. It is not painful but I wonder if this is common for people after being treated with Ulthera?

Hi Sera99,

Welcome to the community and thanks for the review. I'm glad that although the first time was so painful, you tried it again and this time they helped you with the pain. Please keep us updated to how the healing goes.
