Can you get Ultherapy if you may be pregnant?
Ultherapy has not been evaluated for pregnant or breastfeeding women. I would recommend waiting until you have confirmed that you are not pregnant before undergoing a treatment.
I can see why you might be concerned.Having a treatment like Ultherapy is not
advisable while pregnant.The procedure
does produce some discomfort and pain medications are often given to help with
this and that is generally not something recommended to take while
pregnant.You can double check with your
OB/GYN just to be safe, but I would not recommend it.
Thanks for your inquiry.I
would not advice Ultherapy on the abdomen if you are pregnant.You can double check with your OB/GYN to be
sure, but it is not something I would recommend.You should also keep in mind that the
procedure causes discomfort and usually we have to give medication for the
patient to tolerate it and this would be not advisable while you are
pregnant.I hope this helps.
This is a device that heats the layers beneath your skin using harmless ultrasound. This is the same type of 'energy' that is delivered to scan you during pregnancy, so the answer is NO, no harm at all in retrospect.
Having said that, I make it a point to avoid all cosmetic procedures during pregnancy.

Ultherapy is ultrasound and would have no way to hurt an unborn child. However,if you are pregnant there is no reason to have cosmetic procedures. I'd wait till after you deliver. Best, Dr. Emer.
Clearly you should not have ultherapy done based on your concerns and paranoia. You obviously believe you could be pregnant at the time of the demonstration which would require you to sign a consent pre-treatment asking if you could be pregnant and you will answer in the affirmative which would exclude you as a proper candidate.
It isn't recommended to get Ultherapy while pregnant
While ultrasound is routinely used during pregnancy to evaluate the status of the pregnancy, Ultherapy hasn't been tested yet to see if it is safe during pregnancy. For this reason, I would wait until after the pregnancy to have it done. That is the safest and wisest process. Good luck!
Ultherapy and pregnancy...
Thank you for your question. There are no studies showing safety of Ultherapy in pregnant patients. If there is any chance that you may be pregnant you should pass and not have the procedure performed, it is not worth the potential risk of affecting the child. Regards, Dr. Matt Elias

Hi and thanks for your question. You don't want to do anything that could potentially hurt the baby, so I would not have the procedure. Good luck.
