Thermage may or may not give you the results you desire. In my opinion, it is the best non-surgical way to tighten skin; however, non-surgical skin tightening has it limits and may only tighten the skin a small amount with each treatment. More than one treatment may give better results. I only do thermage body treatments on thin patients with loose, thin, freely moveable skin as I think these patients do best witht the treatment. I do believe thermage to be very safe - the unpredictable part is in results not in risk of bad outcome.
