Myth #1 It’s painful and many people can’t even finish the procedure once they start!
While there is some mild discomfort with the procedure3, it doesn’t have to be VERY uncomfortable. If desired and applicable, we will pre-treat with a sedative such as valium and also give ibuprofen one hour prior to the procedure.
I have found that topical lidocaine as well as specific stress relieving techniques can greatly reduce any discomfort that patients may experience*. For those patients that would like anesthetic sedation during their treatment, Dr. Brady and I are able to offer you anesthesia services during Ultherapy treatment in his brand new, state of the art surgical suite.
