Thermage will treat and tighten your skin
I have been using Thermage with outstanding results for over five years in my office. The benefits for patients who are young are really remarkable. You will produce new collagen gradually from the radiofrequency technology and it will help rejuvenate your skin. Thermage works deep into the skin to tighten it. However, it will not remove sun spots which are superficial to the epidermis. The best way to remove these sun spots are with Fraxel to treat the whole face or the Alex Trivantage for localized sun spots. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with these lasers for the best cosmetic results.
Thermage or Ultherapy to Treat Facial Lines
My concern for you and question for you is that you say you have had a reaction to Botox in the past. This is very unusual, and one would like to know what you had done and what you think you reacted to. Botox is an incredibly safe procedure in the right hands, there are no allergic reactions or things like that, and if you had a side effect, most all of that is injection technique, not due to the product per se. Have the right consultation, learn the facts, and do the procedure that feels right.
