Botox and Ultherapy for platysmal banding. Does Ultherapy move the Botox deeper into the muscle?

Botox and Ultherapy or Thermage
Botox should not be done right before (at the same time) as Thermage or Ultherapy. I suggest next time you have the skin tightening procedure first and then you can have Botox afterwards so that you are not having the Botox spread and giving you these side effects. Please consult a board certified dermatologist in the future whose expertise is in cosmetic lasers and injections. Best, Dr. Green
Botox followed by Ultherapy treatment
I am sorry to hear that you had a problem with your Botox. When combining treatments with Botox injections is very important to do all manipulations or treatments that involve massaging first. After these are done then you can think about injecting Botox.
Any type of massaging or tissue manipulation after Botox injections carries the risk of moving or changing the penetration of Botox effects into deeper structures that were not intended to be treated. This might explain your problems with swallowing. The bad news is that you might be suffering form this for several weeks, the good news is that it will disappear after that period of time.
Hope this helps,
