Skin tightening with microfocused ultrasound is a novel technology that has shown to have a good safety profile, with mild cutaneous reactions being the most commonly reported side effect. However, more serious complications have been reported, and in this case, a neuropraxia of both the motor and sensory nerves (supraorbital branch of V1 division of the trigeminal nerve and the temporal branch of the facial nerve) developed shortly after the treatment of the right brow with microfocused ultrasound (Ultherapy) in a 62-year-old woman. Full recovery was observed by 8 weeks post-treatment.
