I am experiencing swelling and bruising after Ultherapy and want to know if exercise is going to make it worse?

I don't think you are doomed in regard to swelling. I would avoid strenuous exercise and follow up with your provider.
Swelling & Strenuous Exercise after Ultherapy
Swelling can last a few weeks after Ultherapy. Ice packs, Arnika Forte, diuretics, and time are the best options at this point. Exercise isn't contraindicated after Ultherapy, but if you notice strenuous exercise makes swelling worse, perhaps you should reduce your routine for the time being. If the swelling persists or you remain concerned, contact your Dr. Best, Dr. Emer.
