45 Year Old Female, Looks Good for Age, Works Out, Eats Clean. - Walnut Creek, CA

I was starting to notice that the underside of my chin and neck were starting to sag and look old. I expected a more painful experience based on other reviews. On a scale of 1-10, the discomfort was a 5 or 6. You can do whatever you like right after the procedure and only feels mildly uncomfortable the next day. It did not feel like others have stated" a bolt of lightning through the head." I thought it felt like a little stinging sensations, some places worse than others. Before the procedure I had taken Tylenol. It helped for me to exhale as the sting was happening and the assistant had a fan on my neck. If it got a little intense, the Doctor would stop and massage the area. The procedure lasted 2 hours and results up to three years. I will be posting new photo's every thirty days as it can take up to 90 days to see the full effect. One day post procedure, I do not see any change but I did not expect to. I feel this procedure is expensive and to do the whole face and neck is close to 5,000. If I do not see a good result, I will wait 10 years and have a neck lift. If your chin and neck look worse than mine, I would just put your money towards a surgical lift.

Ultherapy on neck

This is one week out. The first picture was in daylight, second at night. I can't tell anything yet. Anyone considering this procedure should realize that Ultherapy results can keep developing from up to 60-90 days. That is when you would see the best results. Hang in there with me and we will see if anything changes.

Ultherapy- 3 months post

This will be that last of my ulthera pics unless something magical happens (and I doubt it will). Ulthera made a difference in my sagy neck but not enough for what it costs and how long it lasts.

7 Months Later

Here I am, 7 months after Ulthera to my neck region. I have self tanner on but no make up. I think Ultherea is worth it if you have extra money to throw around, it's expensive as far as I am concerned. It would have cost 6,000$ to do my whole face. Nothing seems to happen for a while, so anyone who doesn't think it worked for them, wait 3 months before making up your mind. Since it is so expensive and results are subtle and take some time, I'm guessing people want a better effect and faster results. I don't' regret doing Ulthera but would probably not do it again.
Walnut Creek Dermatologist

I love my doctor as a person, and think she is a wonderful physician. That said, it takes 60-90 days to notice results from the procedure so I can't say yet if it was the successful result I was looking for.
