I debated and researched this for a long time, and have done similar therapies on my body, but concluded that I would never do ulthera (or anything like it) on my face as long as i am open to surgery in the future on my face. The reasoning is that we really don't know the long-term effect of something that "cooks" the underlying facial layers, and rearranges the natural order of the tissues and their connections...just as scar tissue can compromise an aesthetic outcome from plastic surgery, i believe (and have heard from plastic surgeons) that this tissue no longer behaves the same way, in terms of surgery. If you would never consider surgery for those areas in the future, then this is not relevant to you.

I agree with this.

Basically uses heat to blast and therefore shrink (tighten) the smas.


I've also heard the pain is excruciating

if someday you will consider a necklift or facelift, the same caution applies.

you can read on other boards all the bad experiences people have had.

I know 3 people who had it. Two said it was very painful, and not one of them look even slightly better, or even any different for that matter.

For 3500 I expect at least a little improvement. I think I will ask Dr. G about fixing my chin when I go to fix my nostril .

Is it just some submental fullness that bothers you? I can't see it in the photos I've seen, but if that is it, you are at a young enough age that simple lipo would probably do the trick.

I've had ultherapy on a quarter-sized spot just above my jaw line--only one side of my face--where I wanted to clean up a spot of fulllness there. It was extremely painful and took about 5 minutes of sustained treatment just for that one small spot. I am really tough about things that hurt, but Ulthera hurt enough that it pushed me nearly to the upper limit of what I could sit still for.

Dr. G is a good person to ask about your chin---the sliding genio work he does always looks really nice to me.

Maybe it's good for saggy elbows and knees

Sterlingrose is looking for a ulthera practitioner who can do her ENTIRE body
