There’s no evidence that you have to worry about NSAIDs with Thermage. I think you can take them right away as there’s no indication that you have to wait.

There has not been any evidence that antiinflammatory medications alter results from the radiofrequency treatment of thermage.

Nsaids after thermage


While there is some concern that suppresing inflammation may decrease the results of a nonnvasive skin tightening treatment, I do not believe that NSAIDs are likely to modify the outcomes achieved with Thermage.  I have been performing Thermage for 9 years or so and have never been able to make this correlation.
