I had Ultherapy treatment to almost 3 weeks ago to firm and define my jawline and neck. I didn't want to have surgery so Ultherapy seemed like a good choice for me. I also liked the idea of no down time. However, I was concerned about how painful it might be.
I was very pleasantly surprised to find that it was almost pain-free. I used some numbing cream an hour before and I had a light sedative given to me by my doctor. She also used some special freezing techniques which made a huge difference in the pain level. Most of the time there was no pain at all. On a scale of 1 to 10 the highest amount of pain I felt was about a 2 or 3.
For about 2 weeks I had a couple of tiny bruises along my jawline There was tenderness in my jaw and down the front of my neck. It is almost gone now. There was also some swelling right after but nothing really noticeable.
I'm seeing a definite tightening of the skin on my lower face and neck. I'm also noticing a more defined jawline. My doctor said not to expect too much until after 3 months.
I'm very happy with the results and I would definitely do this procedure again.
