Ultherapy Instructions

Pre Care Instructions

Patients with any of the following medical conditions are not candidates for Ultherapy:

  • Psoriasis on face or head

  • Epilepsy

  • Bells Palsy

  • Pregnancy

  • Cystic acne in treatment area

  • Open lesions in treatment area

  • Metal implants or stents in treatment area (this does not include dental work)

Patients with the following medical conditions should take additional precautions. Please discuss with your Ultherapist:

  • Blood disorders

  • History of cold sores

  • Auto-immune diseases

Prepare for your treatment:

  • You may experience mild, momentary discomfort. Taking 800 mg of Ibuprofen 30 minutes before treatment may reduce any sensitivity.

  • Skin must be fully healed from any prior laser treatment or chemical peel before receiving Ultherapy.

Avoid these products and/or procedures before your treatment:

  • Patients should not receive Botox two weeks before or two weeks after an Ultherapy treatment.

  • Please advise your Ultherapist if you have received a Dermal Filler within the past 6 months. Please postpone any upcoming Dermal Filler treatments until after your Ultherapy treatment.

Post Care Instructions

After treatment:

  • You may resume your regular activities.

  • A skincare regimen containing anti-oxidants, growth factors, retinol, and broad-spectrum SPF is recommended.

  • Protect your treatment and investment by avoiding excessive sun exposure and smoking as these cause additional aging in the skin and the need for additional treatments may be required
