After Ultherapy procedure, what things shouldn't I do?
Doctor Answers 10
A great aspect of Ultherapy is that there is generally no real downtime following the procedure.
Albany NY Ultherapy Expert says- you can resume all your activities the morning after Ultherapy
Ultherapy does not have any significant contraindications after treatment. We typically provide you with a pain pill before treatment, so have someone drive you home. You might have some bruising or swelling after your treatment, so let how you look and how you feel be your guide to resume your regular activity.
Hope this helps!

Post Ultherapy Instructions
Do not be concerned at all. There is no contraindication between Ultherapy and taking a hot shower or bath.
The only instructions we give to our patients is to not drive home because of the medication we give during the procedure for comfort and relaxation. These have sedating effects, so you also wouldn't want to do workouts or anything where you could injure yourself or make any major decisions ;-)
Our only instructions are to be aware that intense workouts can potentially increase swelling and bruising. Theoretically, a really hot bath, shower, sauna or jaccuzi could cause vasodilation and increase the bruising and swelling, but still wouldn't interfere with your results.

Ultherapy Post Procedure Protocols
Here is what I recommend to my patients after Ultherapy:
1. Avoid the routine use of anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen, naproxen and Celebrex for one month. The inflammatory response in your tissue from Ultherapy works in a positive way to stimulate collagen fiber formation and remodeling
2. If you are not already on a medically oriented skin care program, you may want to discuss this with your provider at the time of your treatment. Topical prescription skin products can help to stimulate collagen fiber formation through direct action with growth factors and through exfoliation to resurface skin. Medical skin care combined with treatments like Ultherapy can maximize the results you obtain and help to maintain the results.
3. Take 1000 mg Vitamin C daily. Vitamin C has a necessary role in collagen synthesis

Ultherapy After Care
Don't be sad. Nothing is going to happen to your face because you took a hot shower after an Ultherapy session. We ask our patients to avoid heavy exercise for first 48 hours. Most of the things you should avoid such as exercise or hot sauna are to prevent excess swelling after the procedure. Hot yoga or sauna can increase blood flow to your face and may make the swelling worse. Try to avoid anything that will get your heart rate or blood pressure up for the first few days. You should do just fine.

Thank you for your question.
I have done Ultherapy since 2010 and don't give such restrictive post procedure instructions and it is not clear to me why the provider has told you to do that ... other than the theoretical issue that skin integrity may be compromised and getting into a dirty jaccuzzi can cause bacteria to get into the skin.
You can shower and swim within 12 hours of the procedure.
