I had ulthera done on my lower face and neck yesterday. I am just not sure about what I can and cannot do afterwards. Can I wash my face as I normally would? Cold or hot water? Can I work out? they didn't really give me much info after I left and I didn't think to ask until now. Can someone let me know? thanks very much.

After Your Ultherapy Treatment
Ultherapy post-op advice
Ultherapy is great because it requires no downtime after treatment. Patients will be asked to avoid soaking in hot tubs or spas for 1 week after treatment. You should also avoid washing your pillow cases with fabric softener while your face is healing. At most, you may see a bit of swelling, but you can resume your normal daily activities after your treatment is finished. Just be gentle with your skin for the first few days. Ibuprofen and cold packs can be used to resolve any swelling that results.

Thank you for your question. The wonder thing about Ultherapy is that there is minimal post op care. You can wash with anything, exercise, drive , go to work, and resume all social activities. You may experience some tenderness and swelling for a few days but this will not prevent from doing anything.
Thank you for your question. Since Ulthera is a completely non-invasive treatment, you do not need to follow a post-treatment regimen. You can resume your normal activities as you usually would.
Aftercare following Ulthera is NOTHING
After having Ulthera, there is no need to do anything special. It is recommended not to use steroids or other anti-inflammatories, but this has yet to be proved to be detrimental to your results (its theoretic). That's the beauty of Ulthera, no downtime, no aftercare! Please see my video too.

There is no significant aftercare. You can wash your face normally. If there is any bruising from local injections, make sure to wear sunblock and do not tan over a bruise. Otherwise, you can resume your normal activities right away.
