After Traditional Treatment
Supposedly it does so, by somehow heating the water content of the sebaceous gland and causing their inactivation. The effect is supposed to last 6-18 months.
Call me a skeptic on this one, but it sounds like one of two things. Either your dermatologist has exhausted all the other excellent therapeutic options for acne ( antibiotics, topicals, hormonal treatments, light therapy, Accutane) and is using Thermage as a last resort, or he has found a new way to pay for his machine.
