Just Had Ulthera - San Jose, CA

Unexpectedly painful. Took one vicodin and got one Demerol injection prior to the procedure and halfway through it they gave me another half of a vicodin tablet. It did not even take the edge off of the pain.

I just had this done a few days ago so I have not seen any improvement yet in my face or neck. I haven't told any of my friends or family yet and had one of my neighbors drive me to the appointment.

I'm hoping that within that magic "three-month" time period I see improvement.


I am considering this procedure and am wondering what your opinion is....how are your results?

Hi Calimushka,

Welcome to the Ulthera community. It's been a few days now how is everything going? Based on community and doctor Q&A info, healing and full results can sometimes take 6 months. What prompted you to have this procedure done? Please keep us updated.

Thanks so much for the review,

An RN did the Ulthera procedure but the doctor told me he would make sure I was happy with the results one way or another.
