Medications and Thermage

The medicines that yo are referring to are anti-inflamatory ones and should not affect Thermage.  Thermage works through radiofreqency heating of the skin deeply to produce new collagen. Thermage is a great procedure to tighten and lift the skin.  If you combine it with Kybella for the neck you will have amazing results.  Best, Dr. Green

Thermage treatment

Thermage radio frequency delivers heat deeply into the skin to tighten existing collagen and stimulate the production of new collagen.  Anti-inflammatory medication should not affect the results of Thermage.
