One of the many great things about Ultherapy is the lack of downtime.  You can continue with your usual activities and get your lip waxed the next day, if you wanted!

There is no reason to stop doing anything you normally do after Ulthera. There is no downtime.  If you use Retin-A or similar, you should wait about 4 days after stopping to get waxed, but this has nothing to do with Ulthera.

Luckily with this great procedure there is minimal to no downtown related. Immediately you will feel some tingling, slight tenderness, and possibly some numbness, so it would be your own comfort level with the waxing and what you are experiencing with the Ultherapy response on your skin.

Ultherapy safety and lip waxing

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Lip waxing might be approved by the doctor performing your Ultherapy for the next day, however, if there was the utilization of the 1.5 mm. superficial transducer, and if welts had occurred and persist, then the skin might be more susceptible to injury by the waxing. Please be sure to check with the provider, after you have the Ultherapy as to when you can have the waxing.

Because there is no disruption in the surface of the skin, there is no downtime following Ultherapy.  Therefore, it should not be a problem for you to get your lip waxed immediately after Ultherapy.
