With ultherapy, during approximately the hour of a treatment, there’s multiple lines of application of the ultrasound. It’s almost like you think of a line about a couple inches long and then it’s like level dots of energy. And so some of them will start to feel a little hot. And sometimes, especially in areas of the face where there’s nerves, it may feel almost like somebody tapped you on your funny bone but it’s on your face. So not everybody has that. And for most people, it’s very tolerable, but it’s like a series of almost like little hot pricks over the face so that’s why we give people the double dose of Tylenol or Advil or if they want something stronger.
