I have a Pacemaker/Defibrillator, can I still have Ultherapy?

Ulthera and Pacemakers
Yes, you are a candidate for Ulthera because it uses Ultrasound and does not have any effects on pacemakers. Thermage (radio-frequency) is contraindicated, however.
Ultherapy can be used in a pateint that has a pacemaker / defibrillator
I have double checked with the science division of Ulthera, and as ultrasound energy, not radiofrequency or electricity is being used, Ultherapy is safe in those patients who have a pacemaker / defibrillator, provided that the treatment is not applied directly to the device.
