Can Ultherapy be performed after having radiation to the neck and parotid gland?

I had a neck dissection over 6 months ago and 6 1/2 weeks of radiation. All in all, everything was completed just over 3 months. Has anyone had Ultherapy after radiation to the head and neck? If so, is it safe and what where the results?

Utherapy can be considered for patients who have had radiation. However, the skin in the desired treatment area has to be healed completely before considering this. This may take 3-6 months for this to occur.
