If I get Botox one or two weeks before having an Uletherapy treatment will the longevity of the botox be affected by the Ultherapy?

Botox and Ultherapy
If Botox is injected 1-2 weeks before or after an Ultherapy treatment, there should not be any negative affect on the longevity of Botox. Similarly, there shouldn't be any diffusion or spread of the Botox.

The two procedures will not inter-relate and thus there will be no long term or short term consequences of doing the Botox first. Raffy Karamanoukian Los Angeles

Ultherapy does not affect the longevity of botox provided it is done a day after or immediately before
Botox is bound immediately upon the injection and I often recommend it to be done at least one day prior to Utlherapy, as we recommend prior to laser resurfacing with Fraxel, as an example, so that the skin heals on a base of smoother skin. Ultherapy can follow Botox by one day or the Botox can be done immediately after the Ultherapy.

Ultherapy will not affect the longevity of the Botox
Having Botox administered 2 weeks prior to an Ultherapy treatment will not affect the longevity of the product. Consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon before any cosmetic procedure or treatment to make sure you are a good candidate and understand the benefits and risks.
Ultherapy and botox
Botox works at the nerve-muscle junction and this will not be affected by having Ultherapy. Some doctors do these treatments at one time but most patients would rather have the treatments at different times.

Botox before Ultherapy
You can have Botox up to 1-2 weeks before Ultherapy. To be on the safe side, I tell my patients to allow 2 weeks after Botox before the treatment to prevent faster turnover and a shorter duration of Botox.
Botox before Ultherapy
There should not be any problems in having botox a couple of weeks before Ultherapy. The two treatments often complement one another.
Botox and Ulthera
Thank you for your question. Having Botox done 1-2 weeks before Ultherapy should not diminish the longevity of the Botox. While I wouldn't suggest having Botox on the same day as Ultherapy, your interval should be fine.
Good luck with your Ultherapy and enjoy the results.
Ultherapy OK after Botox
After 2 weeks there should be no problem doing Ultherapy over the same area. It might even be a good combination, though that has not been specifically studied.
Will Botox longevity be affected by Ultherapy?
I generally recommend waiting at least 2 weeks after having Botox done before getting a procedure like Ulthera. This is because Ulthera may cause slight facial swelling, which may cause Botox to drift to unwanted areas if done too soon after Botox injections. If done this way, it is highly unlikely that any pre-Ulthera Botox will degrade. This is because Botox and Ulthera have different, non-opposing mechanisms of action. Botox relaxes muscles (usually taking full effect in the first 1 or 2 weeks after injection) while Ulthera tightens the underlying tissues and stimulates new collagen formation.
