Lower Cheek and neck swelling and lip paralysis?
By NJRed on 01 Aug 2012
I had my Ulthera treatment yesterday and am experiencing numbness, swelling in my lower cheeks, jaw and neck and some paralysis one side of my mouth (much like after you have novacaine at the dentist). I notice it most when I smile or try to drink something. I have called my doctor and understand that this can happen and should resolve itself. I have a small narrow face so right now I have a mild chipmunk look! Also trying to treat with ice as instructed to reduce swelling that may be affecting the nerve or muscle. A rep from Ulthera was in my session so I know it was done correctly. Has anyone else had these issues and when did they finally go away? Not too nervous and although I know everyone is different I was just wondering how long I may have to deal with this? Thanks :)
