And if so, how long should I wait to receive these treatments? I'm worried that they might undo the effects of my full face and neck Ulthera treatment, which I got two weeks ago.
Are IPL Photofacials and Microdermabrasion Safe Following an Ulthera Treatment?

Ultherapy and chemical peels such as a Melapeel - Los Angeles
The skin is slightly red and sensitized after Ulthera, so I would wait about one week before undergoing microdermabrasion. However, we employ MelaPeels about one week after and have found excellent results using that method. Raffy Karamanoukian, Los Angeles
IPL, microdermabrasion and Ulthera treatments
IPL, microdermabrasion and Ulthera treatments all complement each other. There is no problem having IPL and microdermabrasion now.

Are IPL and micreoderm safe after Ultherapy
Ultherapy addresses collagen formation in the deeper tissue layers. As the new collagen is formed, lifting and tightening of the skin occurs. Both IPL and microderm address changes in the superficial layers and are very safe to combine with Ultherapy. Two weeks is a more than adequate buffer between the procedures. Best of luck.
