Can Ulthera/Ultherapy affect the jaw or teeth alignment in any way?

Ultherapy and teeth
Just like many things in life, we sometimes find things that are associated, but not causative. Meaning, you may be having changes in your teeth that are related to age, dental health or unknown, but these changes can not be caused by using Ultherapy on your skin.
I would see a dentist or orthodontist to see what may be leading to this change.
Best of luck,

Ultherapy is a superficial- not deep- treatment
Since ultherapy only works a few millimeters beneath your skin, there is no way that a treatment would alter your tooth alignment. With your rapid description of aging after your Ultherapy treatment, I would look for another source of this problem. This is probably just a coincidence. Ultherapy should lift, tone and tighten skin- not cause all of the probplems you have listed. Speak with your trusted plastic surgeon or primary care doctor for evaluation of other causes of looking aged and of your tooth issue.
Hope this helps!
Ultherapy does not affect the teeth
Thank you for your question.
Ultherapy energy does not penetrate below the skin to affect dentition as the energy dissipates and is attenuated (ultrasound physics term) within 4.5 mm.
