I didn’t want to go down the traditional plastic surgery route. I didn’t want a lot of down time, especially since we recently started a business and I didn’t want elective surgery and anesthesia.
About the procedure—it was uncomfortable when they’re doing it and they do offer the option of sedation. It is not an immediate thing you can see when you’re done but you notice you are gradually changing and you can feel your face tightening.
I am 53 now but I can see the woman I still am in the mirror again. I look like me but about 10 years younger than I did before the Ulthera. The best thing is that it made me feel better about myself because it didn’t change what I looked like. I first had the treatment 15 months ago and recently had a touch up of the new shallow Ulthera – which should extend the benefits of my original treatment.
