Can Ultherapy cause lymph nodes to swell?
Doctor Answers 8
Lymph Swelling Is Possible
Lymph node or swelling in area of Ultherapy
Yes- Ultherapy causes inflammation below the skin's surface and the clean up mechanism involves the lymph nodes. Generally, this condition should resolve within a few months... but don't ignore it. Since other conditions- like cancer- can cause swollen nodes as well. be sure to have your doctor follow you along and keep an eye on this condition.
Hope this helps!

Submental lymph nodes need to be investigated and followed very very closely
Any inflammatory condition can cause lymph nodes to react.
Submental nodes under the jaw should be followed very carefully, especially in smokers.
I recommend that you seek guidance from your primary care provider and/or Ultherapy provider.
If it does not subside in several weeks, seek a consultation from a head and neck surgeon (otolaryngologist).
