I read this is normal. My question is should I work out in the morning - I work out with a personal trainer mostly with weights. I appreciate some thoughts. Thank you.
Ultherapy Done Today on Full Face, Swelling on Lower Cheeks and Now Bruising On Both Cheeks?
Doctor Answers 3
Rest for 2-3 days
I have occasionally seen bruising after Ultherapy. It is usually in the temple areas but can also be seen in the cheeks. Did you take any Aspirin or Advil before? Where you on any types of blood thinners? Vitamin E by mouth? Either way it should resolve in about a week. I would refrain from strenuous exercise for a few days. Discuss it with your doctor but I am a believer in Arnica.

Ultherapy bruising is not common
Ultherapy for facial lifting and exercise
Check with your doctor before you exercise to make sure the bruising is nothing more than a bruise. The swelling you have could worsen with exercise and your doctor might prefer you to wait for the swelling to go away first before resuming your work out.
