What to Expect During Ultherapy

Pre-Ultherapy Instructions

You will meet with a member of the Krauss Dermatology team to discuss the procedure and whether you are a good candidate to treat the lower face and neck or chest area.

You will discuss what medications are appropriate to make the procedure as comfortable as possible for you. If you have a high tolerance for discomfort, we recommend that you take 800 mg of ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin). If you have a low tolerance for discomfort, we will prescribe pain medication (such as Percocet) and if desired a relaxation medication (such as Valium) to be taken in the office before we start the procedure. If any prescription medication is used, you will need a ride home and will not be able to drive yourself.

Unless specifically prescribed by a doctor for a medical condition, avoid aspirin and nonsteroidal medications (Advil, Aleve, Motrin) for the week before your procedure to avoid bruising.

If you tend to get cold sores on your mouth area, discuss with your doctor whether you should take oral medication to prevent a cold sore before your procedure.
