Expensive Procedure, Subtle Results

I debated Thermage with my husband and family for a long time but a few months ago I finally decided to go to London and do it. I had shopped for the right doctor and was very satisfied with choosing the one I did. He numbed the area with one anesthetic injection because I was worried about the pain, and aside from a generally strange feeling and some dizziness from that, I felt nothing. The whole procedure lasted a little over an hour and then I walked right out - no surgery scars, no recovery time, just a little redness and blotchiness.

The results are starting to show up now that it’s been a few months. It’s a very subtle procedure; I’m guessing the difference would be harsher if I had surgery and they had yanked the skin right up my face instead of allowing the collagen to repair itself naturally, but the non-invasive aspect was important to me. I may not notice it on a day-to-day basis, but I know the difference is there.

The procedure was very expensive to pay for upfront, but I think it will be worth it. First of all, this is supposed to last for many years, so spreading a few thousand pounds across a decade isn’t so bad (not to mention the money I’m saving on quack skincare ointments). But most importantly I was willing to pay for the quality and piece of mind. In doing my research I saw that you could travel to South America or Eastern Europe to get Thermage done a lot cheaper, but I figured it’s just that… cheaper. My doctor is certified, he was patient and took the time to consult with me, and I think that is worth something.
