Just Had Ulthera Procedure Today! - Santa Rosa, CA

It is an uncomfortable procedure for sure BUT you can have the machine turned down to a level tolerable for you. Of course the results will be better at full strength. The most important thing to consider is the facility that the this procedure is being offered & the person performing the procedure. Make sure they are both very credible. By the way, i had no pain directly after the treatment or anytime afterward. I do have a few very small bumps that im sure will be gone by tomorrow this time.

Just a quick update: I did have slight surface...

Just a quick update: I did have slight surface numbness along my jawline/lower cheek area for about 10 days but all is good now. It is said that you will see results in 3-6 months after Ulthera but i am already noticing results :) My skin is looking smoother & more youthful. I need way less moisturizer & makeup. A small dot of product seems to just glide across my face now. In my opinion, i think Ulthera is like excersize, rest, & rejuvenation for your face. If you can stimulate collagen, fantastic! I just think its silly when people have Ultherapy & expect to look as though they just had a facelift. Silly...
Im going to try to have Ultherapy done every 12-16 months. Yes its expensive but come on, how much do you spend on clothes, shoes, hair, makeup, etc? It just depends where your priority lies. My priority is my face & my internal health. If you dont want to spend the money on your face, then you better buy expensive shoes to redirect where people look at you :D Im kidding...

I stumbled accross their website & filled out a request for a free consultation. They promptly called me the next day & were extremely patient, friendly & knowledgable. I will say "I LOVE THE FACILITY THAT I CHOSE & EVERY PERSON THAT WORKS THERE." (especially Danielle the clinical aesthetician)

Your shoe advice made me laugh! A veil & great shoes and there would be no need to do this stuff!! ;)

Congrats on getting your Ultherapy done! What areas did you have treated? Also, did you use anything to help control the pain during the procedure?

Thank You! I had my entire face & upper neck treated. I was given a hose blowing cold air & a small massager for a distraction. The massager didnt do much for me but being in control of the air hose was a little distraction even though i wasnt really using it. By the second half i discovered that pointing the cold air down to my feet (i was wearing sandals) seemed to be a nice distraction when the cold air would hit them. I think holding an ice pack would be good for me next time. There's just something about the "cold" that seems to help. This morning the small bumps were gone. I have no redness but i do have a slight swelling in my jowl or jaw bone area. Nothing too bad. My husband didnt even notice! An ice pack would certainly take down the swelling but like i said, its not that bad & im just too lazy to ice it.

Haha, I love your genuineness in admitting you are too lazy to ice! Funny how little things like that can seem like such a pain in the rear, isn't it?!

I'm glad things are looking alright for the most part, and will look forward to hearing more as you continue to heal. :)
