Ultherapy to Whole Face and Chin - Vallejo, CA

I had my treatment today. I had my whole face treated and under my chin. I had a pain pill an hour before ( which was not effective since I have an adverse reaction to a derivative of one of the ingredients ) I did take 800 mg ibuprofen before and when I got there they gave me a 10 mg Valium. I have to say the pain was not bad. I have had fraxel and the pain was so much easier to deal with.... READ MORE

I have... READ MORE

It feels like little needles prickling your face, or if you have ever experienced a severe ice storm with wind pelting your face, like that. Really not bad. I left the office a little red and puffy, but nothing too severe. Once... READ MORE

Questions from Kim R

How can I massage them to try to fix all of this until I can get back to the MD who was off today for the holiday? (photo)

Juvederm injected on 11/08. It is 11/11. They are too big, they are uneven and they have lumps. They have a ski slope affect so in a side profile I look like a duck. This is... READ MORE

I have had two sessions and have seen incredible improvement in my skin. However I have done the sessions three weeks apart. That is what I was told. 4 sessions 3 weeks apart. READ COMMENT

I had ultherapy at end of last year. Haven't had problems like you have but have seen zero results. Very disappointed in the procedure. READ COMMENT

How is it going with your recovery? Would you do it again? I'm turn 50 in a few months and my eyes need help! Just trying to research and find a Doc. READ COMMENT
