Thermage is an effective modality for skin tightening and increasing collagen in the skin. It will not have any effect on your rosacea. You can safely use Thermage on skin that is effected with Rosacea. You should look into taking antibiotics and getting V-Beam therapy for your Rosacea since that will help your overall skin appearance.
Can Thermage Be Done on Moderate to Severe Rosacea is It Safe?

Rosacea and Thermage
Yes, you can have the Thermage procedure done with Rosacea. This, however, will not treat your Rosacea. Thermage is meant for skin tightening and collagen stimulation. This procedure does not address Rosacea.
Hope this helps.

Rosacea responds best to treatment with prescription medication and a variety of colored light/laser based devices.
