I did a lot of research before I made a decision to try thermage done. Of course I was worried that more than 50% of people that wrote reviews did not recommend the procedure. But I really hated how my eyelid started to droop and the whole skin around the eyes looked...old. I had botox under the eyes and crow feets for two years now and i love the results but botox does not address the loss of elasticity. So I decided to spend what i still think is obsene amount of money for vanity and had thermage done months ago.
It wasn't painful and I didn't see any results right away. However three weeks later I saw my left eyebrow was higher than the right and my left eye seemed more open. It wasn't obviuos but it was noticeable. I remebered that during the procedure the nurse spend more time on the left eye than the right one and maybe this explains the difference. I definetly see some improvement but is not as dramatic as I expected and much better on one of my eyes.
I am planning to have Thermage on my whole face next year.

I was recently looking at some old pictures and I can not help but notice how droopy my eyelids looked;I look at them now and there is much more pronounced difference - there is no droopiness whatsoever. I guess it takes more than a couple of months to see the final results. I am planning to repeat soon for maintenance purposes...
My advise is to really spend some time and analyze whether you are a good candidate for Thermage before you commit to spend so much money. According to what I have researched and seen in my case: you stand a better chance of getting good results if:
- if you are relatively young - 30s-40s
- if you some volume in your face but you have some specific problematic areas - droopy eyelids, droopy jowls..
- if you have an experienced technician/doctor; I don't think that this is a procedure where a certified MD will do better than a technician, experience and common sense is much more important.
