Fillers after Thermage
Yes- it's fine to have fillers at this point. Actually with Thermage, fillers before or after the treatment are fine. Good Luck! Scott Newman, MD FACS

Hermage® Face procedures followed by injectable treatments are fine.
It is perfectly fine to have injections in your nasolabial folds (smile lines) 3 days post-Thermage®. Some patients may opt to have the injections done immediately after a Thermage® procedure as there is no contraindication to this. You have to be careful as the reverse can not be carried out. A Thermage® Face procedure should not be carried out for at least 1 month on areas where filler was injected.
Cosmetic treatments after Thermage
You may safely have treatments such as Botox or injectible fillers after Thermage as long as you have no redness or swelling. Most patients have very minimal redness or swelling after Thermage treatment that lasts for a few hours, but sometimes the swelling can last a bit longer. If there is any swelling it could change the contours of the face and affect where the doctor would place the filler and how much would be injected.
In addition, studies of fillers done before Thermage treatments show that Thermage has no effect on the filler. It does not melt it or make it go away faster.

Thermage, Botox, Juvederm etc
It is perfectly fine to have injectable fillers after Thermage. The thermal effects of the treatment are no longer present.
Fillers safe after thermage
It is safe to do botox and fillers a few days after thermage so long is there is no obvious swelling. Rarely a patient will have some residual swelling after a thermage procedure which could last for 3-4 days in which case it would be best to avoid botox so that it does not migrate to unwanted areas. Injections 1 week after these rare cases are usually appropriate.
Studies have also shown that the thermage does not melt pre-existing hyaluronic acid fillers in the skin.
Filler Following Thermage
I recommend to my patients to do fillers and/or Botox/Dysport after Thermage rather than before.
Botox and fillers are safe following Thermage
Botox / Dysport and fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane or Radiesse etc. are safe to perform following your Thermage treatment.
