Platysmal Botox and Ultherapy?

Botox and Ultherapy
Ultherapy uses high intensity ultrasound to selectively heat up deeper layers. Botox uses a chemical to selectively paralyze muscles. If Botox spreads it can affect the surrounding muscles. In your case it sounds like it spread to the muscles that help with swallowing. Having Ulthera immediately after Botox may have allowed spreading although this would be unlikely. The Ulthera would not likely improve any already existing swallowing problem because it is working on a non swallowing muscle.
I hope this helps and good luck.

Ultherapy to the neck should not cause the Botox to spread or cause worse swallowing. Make sure you have these procedures performed by an experienced practitioner. Good luck!

Botox is a great way to help stop the wrinkles in the neck from getting worse. I prefer Thermage to Ulthera for the neck but it should have no effect on your Botox. If you are having a side effect with your Botox injections please return immediately to your treating physician for examination.
