Ultherapy in rosacea
There is no reason someone with rosacea cannot be treated with ultherapy. While initially, there may be more redness following treatment; rosacea patients should benefit from an improved appearance with skin tightening and lifting. It should not worsen the rosacea.
Ultherapy may have a positive effect on Rosacea.
It is very interesting to me that treatments such as Ultherapy and Thermage that are based on warming the lower levels of the skin to induce tightening can also improve conditions such as acne and rosacea. I would like my patients to have their skin disease under control with standard medical treatment before undergoing elective cosmetic procedures but I have definitely seen long term improvements in these conditions after tightening procedures.

Ultherapy is an ultrasound treatment that essentially bypasses the skin to treat the deeper layers. There is however a newer and more superficial treatment head for Ultherapy that seeks to improve fine lines, and which may (theoretically) temporarily aggrevate rosacea by increasing blood flow. Check with your doctor regarding your particular case.
