Thermage versus Fraxel
Thermage uses radiofrequency to stimulate collagen and tighten loose skin. It can be used on the face, neck, chest, and body. Generally, there is no downtime. Best results are usually seen by 6 months, as it takes time for collagen tightening to occur. Fraxel is a fractionated laser used to improve photodamage, wrinkling, and scarring. There is some downtime, which varies based on the type of laser and settings used.
