As stated by Dr. Persky, MD, Persky Sunder Facial Plastic Surgery, Encino:
Points from the Video:
00: 17- Avoid aspirin, advil, motrin prior to ultherapy;
00: 40- We offer a local anaesthetic;
One of the nicest things about ultherapy is that it’s so easy to do. There is no preparation for the procedure. For surgical procedures, I just prepare patients by telling them not to take any aspirin, advil, motrin or other things that thin the blood prior to surgery. With ultherapy, because it’s totally non-invasive, patients can just walk in the office and just have the treatment done. Ultherapy can be a little discomforting during the treatment, so we do offer patients a local anaesthetic. In those patients, we are going to put a few injections of local anaesthetic, we do ask them to avoid taking anything that might thin their blood about 5-7 days prior to the treatment.
