Ulthera Experience

Had Ulthera on neck and chin to improve sagging skin on my neck and tighten skin on my jawline that was beginning to sag a little. I'm 66 years old, 5'6" tall, weigh 137 lb. I take good care of myself by exercising and eating healthy. I've used Retin A for many years and attribute my great skin condition, and looking at least 10 years younger, to this product. This is my first procedure.
Took pain pills and a relaxant. Half way through I felt the relaxation wearing off and tensed up a bit. That's when I took a few seconds to make myself RELAX, and remind myself to keep breathing slowly. I think I too my pills a little too early and they wore off too soon. Try to take them as you enter the office, because you will have at least 20 min. before the procedure is started. Mine lasted 45 min. The most pain was in the area of the jawbone, where they start, then work their way down the neck. I was prepared to feel it more at the bone, and knew that the next few pluses as she worked down my neck, would not hurt as much.
My skin was red from the numbing gel, it lasted an hour or so. Several places on my neck swelled up the size of an inch long pencil. If my results are close to what I expect, the pain will be well worth it. Generally, I'd say it was tolerable.

Those three places are still there but hardly noticable. I expected the area to be very tender for several weeks, especailly when applying makeup. So far, no pain or tenderness at all. I don't notice any difference yet, but should see results gradually, and hope my skin looks much tighter in 7 or 8 weeks.

If this makes me look 5 to 10 years younger, and lasts a few years, when that time is up I expect to look like I do now. Like turning back the clock.

My friend bruised badly after Ulthera on August 24 because she was taking aspirin and ibuprofen daily. She listed these medications on the pre-ulthera form. She was not told her to discontinue taking it for a few days prior to the procedure. Hopefully they will start telling people about bruising and also check the forms more carefully.
I can now see a little improvement in my neck.

The welts are practically gone after using the steroid cream the doctor gave me three days ago. Maybe a slight improvement, or wishful thinking.
My friend, same age, had the lower part of her face and neck done on 8-24-11. I could see some improvement right away, unless she was swollen. That would make some of the lines and sagging appear to be diminished. Haven't seen her sense. More later!
Our doctor gives facial credits for procedures. We each have four free facial/massages. They are wonderful.

After less than four days, the welts on my neck have gotten smaller and a few of the smaller ones are gone. Hope it's not just my imination, but the small area of crepe skin seems to be improved.

I'm having no pain or tenderness at all. The only discomfort was when the machine was pulsing. More like a slight stinging sensation.
The small swollen places on my neck aren't really noticable, at least no one has said anything to me. Still don't see any difference this early. This is the first time I've looked forward to fall; that's when I should see some improvement.
