Ultherapy Post Treatment
Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound to lift and tighten loose skin over time. Ultherapy is the only non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses focused ultrasound to stimulate the growth of new collagen deep within the skin.
After Ultherapy treatments, some patients may experience slight redness, swelling, tingling, or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature. The post-op symptoms you are describing are normal, and will subside over the next several days.
Bruising is possible after treatment with Ultherapy, though its not very common. The full results are seen after 2-3 months, so give it time to show
Swelling and Ultherapy
Occasionally bruising and swelling may occur but should subside quickly. You should contact your provider and discuss your concerns. Ultherapy is a FDA approved, non-surgical, skin tightening treatments with very few side effects.

Although bruising may happen with ultherapy, it would not last long. Without posting any pictures, it is not possible to provide you with a relevant response. Please discuss this matter with your doctor.

Ultherapy and swelling
Thanks for your question. Most clients who receive Ultherapy have some soft tissue swelling briefly (a day or so), and I would say 1 out of 10 gets that bruising at the jawline- when that occurs then swelling in that region could last longer. I wouldn't call what you describe abnormal, but it is not common. This soft tissue edema should go down gradually. Some people swell more than others with anything, even dermal filler injection. Try taking arnica tablets and bromelain tablets to speed resolution of swelling. And certainly let the Ultherapist know what is going on if you have not done so already.
