Can Metals Affect Thermage Results?

Is it okay that I forgot to remove my wedding ring before I had Thermage? I removed all metals except for the ring.

Thermage no problem with small amount of metals

With the Thermage treatment, the patient is usually grounded and small amounts of metal like a ring make no difference. It sounds like you had no problems and so I am sure that there were no adverse effects or impact on your eventual result from leaving the ring on. Hope that helped.
