I have had Thermage treatments three times over the past year and a half. I expect to have about one every year or two going forward, because it really works.
I saw the doctor for a consultation, and asked what she would recommend if price were not an issue, something that would have stayiung power and not include a knife.
At 46, my skin was just beginning to sag here and there around my jaw, and I wanted to improve the texture around my mouth. I ended up having thermage on my entire face and neck.
It did take several months for the results to be apparent, but my before and after pictures show significant improvement. I have the beginnings of jowly spots and a pouch under my chin, both are GONE. Overall skin texture is improved.
A new friend confessed that he and a female relative had speculated that I might be in my 30's! I know logically that I don't look under 40, but I do like the appearance of my skin better.
I'm told that I respond particularly well to this treatment, and for that I am thankful!
An aside- I opted for a light general anesthesia, so it didn't hurt a bit!
