Has anyone healed from Thermage damage? I was considering all therapy, but that sounds twice as bad.

Thermage and facial atrophy
Thermage is a great laser for skin tightening. Thermage's mechanism of action is through radiofrequency heat. I have not seen a case of facial atrophy from Thermage. Ultherapy is similar in principle to Thermage in that it is designed to tighten the skin. It sounds like you need volumization which may best be accomplished through Voluma or Sculptra. Please consult a medical dermatologist who specializes in cosmetics as well to ascertain what is the origin of the fat lost and what is the best course of action.
Damage from Thermage
It sounds however like you have lost volume and fat in your face and would benefit from volume, shaping and contouring of the face to restore a natural and refreshed appearance. Sculptura may be an excellent option for this but without photos and evaluating your skin texture and tone in person, it's not possible to give you an exact opinion. However, there are many excellent treatments for loss of fat in the face so you shouldn't be discouraged. Ultherapy, however, is probably not the answer unless you only need lifting and tightening.
I hope that helps and best of luck.
