My Dermatologist treated the place on my lower cheek with Liquid Nitrogen yesterday (July 18, 2016). I am scheduled for Ultheraphy with my Aesthetician on August 23rd, 2016 ( which will be 5 weeks and 2 days). He is doing Ultheraphy on my lower face and neck. Do you feel 5 weeks and 2 days will give the place on my cheek enough time to heal before I have my Ultheraphy treatment or should I move my appointment. Thank You

Ultherapy after liquid nitrogen
Liquid Nitrogen and Ultherapy
Ultherapy uses a high-intensity focused ultrasound energy to lift and tighten skin. Though the treatment penetrates the most superficial layers of our skin, it should never be performed in areas where you have open sores or lacerations. If you've been treated with liquid nitrogen and the area that was treated is completely healed, it's safe to move forward with an Ultherapy treatment. 2-4 weeks after LN2 should be a safe and effective time to move forward with Ultherapy in the same area. As always, it's best to discuss your specific case in person with the physician who is performing the treatment.

Thank you for your question. Once you are fully healed from the liquid nitrogen, you can do ultherapy. Five weeks should be sufficient time.
