Does anyone know if Ulthera affects Juvederm injections?
I'm considering Ulthera and rec'd Juvederm injections around my mouth and lips last winter and am curious if the Ultrasound would have adverse (or any) affect on the filler? Thx.

Ulthera is focused ultrasound that penetrates the skin for a distance of about 5mm to 10 mm
Based on the effect of ulthera, it may break down the filler. There is no scientific study. (more)

I had Ultherapy approx 5 months ago and honestly cannot see any improvement at all to the areas It was given mainly my neck area.

I had Juverderm injections to but theses were given to me a week after the Ultherapy treatment.

Im make not female aged 62 and believe this treatment would be ok for younger persons but It certainly has not improved my apperaence.

Regarding the Juvaderm injections I can see a slight improvement but not much...I have spent out over £4000 having the two treatments carried out and think I have asted my money..and believe the only way to tighten up the face is conventional plastc surgery.

Im giving it another 2 months and if I see no improvement Im going to seek a refund.

Regards
