How Long After Ultherapy Treatment Should You Wait Before Using a Home LED Light Device?

How Ultherapy Effects the Skin

Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to create a micro-focused injury between 3-5 mm below the skin surface.  It does not effect the upper layers of the skin, therefore, there are no restrictions on skin treatment after the Ultherapy procedure.

Home LED light therapy and Ultherapy

There is no problem with getting home LED therapy after Ultherapy - start the next day. 

Ultherapy has advantages as it uses imaging to deliver targeted high intensity 'focused' ultrasound.

The results of skin tightening will be most apparent at 6 months.

We have performed hundreds of Ultherapy procedures in our Williamsville, NY office.

Ultherapy and LED light therapy

There is no problem to  do LED after the Ultherapy, although to be extra cautious, I would wait until the following day, just in case you're given any medication by your doctor during Ultherapy to make it more comfortabl. You wouldn't want to do the LED treatment while numb and not know if something was going wrong with the LED session.

LED is safe to use after Ultherapy

It would be fine to use immediately after therapy.  There are no contraindications.
