Not Painless, but Tolerable for Sure! - Vernon Hills, IL

I was nervous today going for Ultherapy because I've read so much about the intense pain. I did ask for Percocet (5/325), Xanax (0.25) and 3 Advils. I took the pills 1/2 hr before starting. Sarah, the expert tech, was extremely experienced and did a terrific job. I had the lower face (neck/jowls/cheeks) done after having lipo 2 months ago. She told me she laid over 650 tracks and expects a great result. I'll keep you posted. Will post pics after 3 mos time.

Day 3: mildly yellowing bruises on my right cheek. Jowls are receeding, but still swollen. Tingling and itchy feeling under skin (must be the collagen, I hope). Midly sensation of bruising under the skin, but able to wash with the Clairsonic and moisturize with no problems.

Day 10 - starting to see some tightening and am really happy. Still a bit tender (like small bruises under the skin), but it's absolutely worth it. Hope it continues to tighten!

I've had several procedures completed at Ritacca Laser and have ALWAYS been happy with the results. LOVE Jen (photofacials, chemical peels, eyebrows, etc), Dawn (filler/botox), Sarah (Ultherapy), and Dr. Ritacca (chin lipo).

Day 11 - No bruising now (had some for about 3 days but very light and def coverable with makeup). Can touch skin with no pain, just feel like something was done below the skin. I can't wait to see the full results (April 19).

So happy to hear you are pleased with the results so far! Are you able to put make-up on to cover the bruises if you need to go out?

Day 1: Today I am swollen and mildly bruised on one side, but feeling ok. I really am not finding any tender spots. So far, so good!
