I Do Resistance Facial Exercises; Will Ulthera Treatment Interfere with Nerve/muscle Response?

I have resumed doing about 30 different resistance facial exercises to increase strength and firmness in many areas of my face I perform a variety of the exercises everday. Will full face Ulthera treatment alter the performance of an individuals nerves or muscles so that they do not respond properly during facial exercises? Also in what percentage of Ulthera cases does motor nerve damage occur during an Ulthera treatment?

Ultherapy is FDA approved and a safe procedure with thousands of satisfied consumers.

It delivers focused ultrasound energy in the skin and dermal appendages and has no effect  on underlying muscle or nerve tissue.

As Ultherapy works on the dermal tissues there should be no problem with the muscles or nerves. There have been a few cases reported of temporary nerve weakness at the jaw near the chin so this area is avoided during treatment, and a few self-limited cases of nerve sensitivity at the scalp from forehead treatment but the Ultherapy should not interfere with your facial exercises and muscle response.
