I am a 45-year-old woman who decided to take the cosmetic dermatology plunge with Ultherapy yesterday! I have tried Botox and filler once and loved the result but found the cost of spending $500 - 1,000 every few months to maintain the look out of my budget. Because I was nervous about any kind of procedure that might cause an unnatural look or irreversible damage I opted for a Board Certified Dermatologist's office to provide expert advice and a safe, care plan tailored to addressing my concerns about my older looking appearance over the past 5 years. After some research I decided to book a consultation at Dermatology Center of the Rockies. The Spa, Cosmetic Dermatology staff spent a lot of time addressing my concerns, giving me their expert opinion (they saw areas for easy improvement that I didn't even think about!) and we came up with a plan that I feel really comfortable with that included the latest in skin tightening and lifting with ultrasound - Ultherapy. It is a more costly procedure in the short-term but after learning about that is available to look a little younger and fresher I went with Ultherapy because, for me it was short-term pain for much longer-term gain. Ultherapy, was the best option for rebooting my skin's natural collagen production and giving me the longer-term results I was looking for. It is more expensive up front, and takes longer because my body is doing the "heavy lifting" (I was told about 30 days to first really notice some changes with more results at about day 30 and more even more around 6 months) - BUT it is not something I will need to repeat for years! And I have other options that can be done in conjunction with my Ultherapy if I want to supplement "problem areas." I was also pretty nervous about what to expect but the Dermatology Center of the Rockies team - from start to finish - were very thorough (I think because it is an MD's office) and truthfully the procedure was uncomfortable at times but nothing (for me) as painful as some of the other reviews I have read. On my neck, each line felt like a warm to hot tiny electric beat underneath the skin. On my face that prickly, warm set of pulses became more intense near my jaw and cheek bones but lasted for just a few lines. Overall, I would have to say that it was not as painful (full disclosure Dr. Baird's office also gave me about 800 milligrams of Motrin when I first arrived) or as long and tedious as I thought it would be. The redness was gone almost immediately after the procedure (I am very fair skinned) and I finished going through the rest of the day with no discomfort. This morning, my face and neck are just a little tender to the touch but nothing noticeable and certainly not anything that has or will interfere with my day! My aestheticians (Sandy and Elena) took before photos that I will ask for copies of to post at a later date when I see noticeable changes. I was so happy with my overall experience and looking forward to seeing the results over the next 30+ days. My motivation in writing this review mostly comes from my relief at finding such a great place (Dermatology Center of the Rockies in Longmont, CO) with such a great staff (thank you to Dr. Baird, Elena, and Sandy) for helping me to feel OK about wanting to do something about looking (but not feeling) older and helping me to find the right procedures and treatment for me within MY comfort level for what I have wanted to change about my appearance but didn’t know how or even where to start!
