I am diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Is it safe to have Refirme or Thermage in the neck area?
Refirme or Thermage Safe for Patients with Hypothyroidism?
Doctor Answers 1
Avoid the thyroid area with both devices, but the Refirme is safer as it is bipolar, [probably does not go deeper than 3mm, but Thermage goes deeper than that as it is monopolar.
