Day of treatment
I cannot understand all the negative reviews on Ultherapy. My dr said that the company had recently changed something on the machine. I had never heard of this treatment before I went in and glad I did not have any preconceived ideas after reading below. My dr trains other docs how to do this so I knew I was in great hands. He asked me how much pain I was in between 0-10 during the procedure. It never went beyond 2, mainly 1. Laser hair removal was more painful. Actually, electrolysis is more painful. I had my lower face done, neck & cheeks. I believe he used 800 lines. I had a little redness, swelling and a welt on right side. This was done with a combination of Artefill. The results were immediate. Even my physician husband who does fillers said he was impressed. It was worth every penny and I wouldn't hesitate to do this. I think the key is using a dr who has the most experience. My doc had done over 300 of these and the results I saw were amazing. We all noticed my "baby jowls" disappear and my neck is tighter. I go back for my post op in two weeks. I couldn't be happier. Please research your dr before you go and ask how many procedures they have literally performed. Ask to see the before and after pictures. Good Luck...
Ultherapy above eyebrows
I had Ultherapy to raise my eyelids because I am not a candidate of eyelid surgery. This was the perfect solution...the pain was only on a scale of 2, and I realized it is because my dr has a chiller that you use at the same time. Plus, the earlier treatments of Ulthera were at higher levels. My dr is fabulous and I could not be more pleased. He specializes in a "fillers", and I had artefill also. No bruising whatsoever because he uses a micro cannula.
