I'm 49 and have typical Irish skin. It looks clear, but it is quite thin and beginning to sag. I'm considering Thermage, but following a conversation with a doctor today, have been encouraged to have Sculptra instead. Does anyone have any advice? Many thanks.
Thermage or Sculptra for Thin, Sagging Skin?

Thermage vs. Sculptra
I am not a big fan of thermage. It can tighten the skin to a small degree but it does not replace a face lift. The Sculptra can be used to fill the face, but takes several treatments over a few months time and can run as much as some facelift procedures.
Thermage is best for loose skin.
Hi. Thermage will actually tighten your skin. Sculptra is a filler useful for hollow cheeks. Actually I think Restylane and Juvederm are the best fillers, but it does not sound like a filler is what you need.
