Thermage was done on my face by an assistant, without Dr. Park’s presence or involvement. The results were terrible: burned skin, increase in wrinkles, and lumpy areas.

Almost intolerably so (if they offer you painkillers,... more
I received thermage on my face and neck by a highly accredited doctor in Los Angeles. He put me completely under for the procedure.
The inital effect was a little tigher skin, but after a few days that wore off and I kept waiting for improvement over time as I was told the full effect would show in 3-6 months, however there was no improvement at all and if there was was it was to small to... more
