It has been one week since I had total neck and face ultherapy treatment. My dermatologist used a facial numbing creme which I believe helped a lot but at times it was painful. My face was red and tender afterwards. The redness wore off in about an hour. However, it is one week later, and my face is tender to the touch and my cheeks still feel kind of numb.
I did not see any improvement in my skin following the treatment. The only thing I've noticed is a decrease in the crows feet around my eyes. I know it takes several months to see the full effects so the jury is still out as to whether the treatment was worth the cost. I am surprised though that I have not seen others report any facial tenderness or numbness following the treatment. Even the RN that performed the treatment said the tenderness lasts about 2 weeks.
