Waxing after Ulthera
One of the many great things about Ultherapy is the lack of downtime. You can continue with your usual activities and get your lip waxed the next day, if you wanted!
Waxing after Ulthera (Ultherapy) can be done immediately after treatment
There is no reason to stop doing anything you normally do after Ulthera. There is no downtime. If you use Retin-A or similar, you should wait about 4 days after stopping to get waxed, but this has nothing to do with Ulthera.

Ultherapy safety and lip waxing
Lip waxing might be approved by the doctor performing your Ultherapy for the next day, however, if there was the utilization of the 1.5 mm. superficial transducer, and if welts had occurred and persist, then the skin might be more susceptible to injury by the waxing. Please be sure to check with the provider, after you have the Ultherapy as to when you can have the waxing.
