V E R Y Painful - Shelby MI

I had ulthera, done on my whole face one week ago today. It was V E R Y painful. I was actually crying it hurt so bad. At first they were not going to give me any injections to numb my face but gave me a Tramadol, I couldn't take the pain, I think I ended up getting about 30 injections at least. I am still very sore and have a few black and blue areas, one on my cheek is about the size of a silver dollar. The part that was the most painful was the areas near bone, the jaw, cheekbones, and temple areas. I don't notice a difference yet but I am optimistic about it. A couple of people said they see some difference but I am not sure. If so it is ever so slight. I really don't know if I could ever go through this again though. I sure hope I have good results.

Wow, 30 injections - eek! I'm surprised you were able to sit for that! I think I'd have a tough time with it. After all you went through I really hope the results come out great for you. Please keep us posted on what you are seeing!

I can see a difference too so it appears to be working fairly quickly for you. Any new pics?

I am really seeing some nice results. I am very happy I did this procedure. I paid $2500.00 and I think it was well worth it. I see the best results in my jowl area. I am four weeks out today. People are beginning to call me Benjamin Button, because it is gradual and very natural.

I had this done yesterday. Took a vicodin 1.5 hours before and a valium about 40 minutes before. I stupidlynforgot to take 4 ibuprophens with the Vicodin. At one point I told them to stop because it was too painful. They gave me the ibuprophen, another Valium and another Vicodin. I truly don't think that helped and the thought of good results versus giving in to the pain is what kept me going. Anxious to see my results as they occur.

The physician assistant who I had the consultation with was great, The aesthetician was okay. I think she was a little rough with me. She should have had me wear some sort of a bib or smock, and a cap covering my hair. The gel got all over my hair and clothing.
